Tuesday, 01 December 2015

This afternoon, David Gilmour was interviewed on the UK's BBC Radio 2. Chatting with presenter Steve Wright, David talked about the new album, touring, and revealed that he is planning to play four nights (David: "I think") next September at London's Royal Albert Hall.

Before you ask, we have no idea of what days in September he is due to play there, nor do we have any details of any other concerts, other than what is already shown in the gig calendar in the right hand column of this site! Once we have more information, we will let you know...

Tuesday, 01 December 2015

David Gilmour - Radio City Music Hall, New York, April 10th 2016Due to the incredible demand for tickets for his North American tour, David Gilmour has now confirmed a third and final concert in New York, to be held at the historic Radio City Music Hall on Sunday, April 10th 2016. This show immediately precedes the pair of sold out shows at the city's Madison Square Garden.

Tickets will go on sale on Thursday 3rd December at 10am EST from this direct link at, or by phone, or selected Ticketmaster outlets. Please note that there is a limit of two tickets per customer. If tickets remain, they will be available at the Radio City Music Hall, Madison Square Garden and Beacon Theatre box offices from Friday, December 4th. Every ticket purchased online will include a CD of David's Rattle That Lock album. NB: It is essential to click the redeem/claim CD button on the Ticketmaster website to activate delivery. There are also three different "VIP Packages" available for this show, offering front row or premium price seats along with special merchandise items - also available through this link.

David's last performance at Radio City Music Hall was back in 2006 as part of the On An Island tour, and this should again prove to be a popular venue to see David live.

Pink Floyd 1965 - Their First Recordings

The news quickly spread over the weekend about a very low-key, and quite astonishing, release that took place on Friday (November 27th). Pink Floyd 1965 - Their First Recordings was a very limited issue of just over 1000 copies (1050 to be exact) on two 7" singles, in a gatefold sleeve, available from selected record stores around the world.

Contrary to some of the comments online, this was NOT part of the limited number of Record Store Day releases which were also in the same stores on Friday.

The records have, for the first time, released six tracks officially. The first and last track have been bootlegged previously, but have never been heard in this sort of quality. The tracks also include Rado Klose on guitar - still a member of the band in those days - and Juliette Gale providing vocals on Walk With Me Sydney. If you've already heard the first and last tracks that gives a decent idea what the rest of songs are like, in style and performance.

The full 18 minute track listing is as follows:

  • Lucy Leave (2:52)
  • Double O Bo (2:54)
  • Remember Me (2:44)
  • Walk With Me Sydney (3:09)
  • Butterfly (2:59)
  • I'm A King Bee (3:08)

Obviously there are many fans hoping that this release is just the precursor to something to come in the future, and speculation has already started going by the incredible reaction to this that we've already seen! From an official standpoint, the band's Facebook page has noted that "Pink Floyd hope to make them available in some physical form towards the end of next year" which is excellent news!

StormStudios' Black Friday to Stormy Monday deals Print E-mail

Gentlemen Without WeaponsHot on the heels of our review of Taken By Storm - The Art of Storm Thorgerson and Hipgnosis on DVD, yesterday, comes an offer from StormStudios themselves.

With a spirit no doubt of "If you can't beat them, join them", they are running a trio of special Black Friday offers, which run until Monday (November 30th). Here's what StormStudios are offering: "Friday may be black and Monday a little Stormy but we'd like to offer you the chance to add a splash of colour to this winter weekend with a trio of special offers. At the top of the tree is a significant price reduction on our high quality (very) limited numbered fine art silkscreen of 'Transmissions'. Designed for Gentlemen Without Weapons, Storm and the the studio went to legendarily preposterous lengths to capture this image [shown to the right]. Yes, those are genuine telegraph poles! View a clip about the making of this cover from Roddy Bogawa's 'Taken By Storm' documentary here. In addition we also have a lovely new limited fine art print of the concept sketch created for an album cover by South African band Machineri, copies of our gorgeous weighty anthology 'The Gathering Storm' and freshly released DVDs of 'Taken By Storm'. Full details here."

The Gathering Storm was a book we hugely enjoyed, and are sure you will to. Check out our review of this book here. If you are yet to get this book, their Black Friday deals might encourage you to snap up the DVD and book (unless your budget stretches to the print) - something we are sure you won't regret.
