Nick Mason talks Saucerful Of Secrets in new Uncut magazine Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Thursday, 17 May 2018

Uncut issue 254The new issue of the UK's Uncut magazine (cover date July 2018) arrives in UK shops today (Thursday), and in due course will be available in selected outlets in Europe and elsewhere. Tucked away, adjacent to John Lydon's chin on the cover are the words: 'We are not a tribute band' - Syd's Floyd Reborn!

Uncut chatted to Nick Mason to discover more about the Saucerful Of Secrets project (the band undergo a set of four shows in London over the course of the coming week). Making the important distinction that "It's not important to play the songs exactly as they were, but to capture the spirit", which helped inform who would join Nick on stage. He reveals that he told both David Gilmour, and Roger Waters, of his intentions to revisit some of the band's earlier repertoire live, and found them very supportive. The chat with Nick also hints at what the set is likely to include come Sunday evening in Camden.

Elsewhere in the magazine there's a major feature on the aforementioned Lydon (known to many as Johnny Rotten in a previous musical life). Lydon, Jah Wobble and Keith Levene recall the last days of the Sex Pistols and explain how the pioneering, cantankerous Public Image were born. Father John Misty, Ray Davies and Johnny Cash also have features within, and the magazine is sold with a cover mounted CD.

The magazine can be purchased online now through Newsstand.co.uk.

 
The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains in Rome - one week extension Print E-mail

The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains - Rome, Italy from January 2018With the current home of The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains about to close its doors on the Floydian artifacts to the public, there's some great news from Rome's Museo d'Arte Contemporanea di Roma (MACRO) for those who are yet to attend but still want to (and will be in a position to do so).

The exhibition, which opened on January 19th, was due to close on May 20th. However, it has just had an extension of a week (now closing on May 27th), and tickets for the extra period are now on sale via VivaTicket.it, all Vivaticket outlet locations and by phone on +39.041.2719035.

Advance booking is heavily recommended. We'd also advise you to book sessions that start no later than lunchtime if you really want to take your time over the exhibition - we had many reports of people spending five or more hours absorbing all the detail in London!

The video report below shows off some of the exhibition, including (as expected) a different layout to the staging of it at London's Victoria & Albert, and some different items on display. 

Amusingly, at one point in the interview, Roger reveals how he isn't particularly interested at the history of the band on display, more keen on the present and his current projects. Whilst some of the video is in Italian, Nick and Roger's comments are subtitled, not overdubbed.

Once May 27th draws to a close, the exhibition will be carefully taken down, and packed up, ready to head to its next destination...once that is confirmed, we will bring you all the details of its new home!

Still On The Run: The Jeff Beck Story - Blu-ray and DVDOn this coming Friday, May 18th, Still On The Run: The Jeff Beck Story gets a worldwide release via Eagle Rock Entertainment, on DVD and Blu-ray.

Still On The Run: The Jeff Beck Story documents the history of a musical maverick and true innovator, delving below the surface to shed light on the circumstances, inspiration and technicality behind the man and his music. The film features extensive interviews with Jeff both at home and in his workshop, as well as interviews with Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart, David Gilmour, Ronnie Wood, Slash, Jan Hammer, Joe Perry, Beth Hart and many more.

Beck’s childhood saw him surrounded by music; from the endlessly playing radio, to his homemade guitar and the countless hours he spent poring over records and playing music with his friend, Jimmy Page. "I didn't have to think about taking up guitar, I just wanted to pour my feelings into it" said Jeff.

The acclaimed documentary reveals the true story of the guitar player who builds hot rods and captures the excitement and anecdotes of those who have worked alongside him. Jeff Beck has always been a risk taker, on an endless quest for fresh and challenging new sounds. Bending notes and filtering a myriad of musical inspirations, he will continue to inspire fans and musicians alike by giving voice to his guitar in the most unexpected ways.

Prog issue 87

The new issue of the UK's Prog Magazine (issue 87) is published on Thursday (May 10th), and includes a feature on Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets amongst its pages.

The article has Nick talking at length about this newly formed band, the reasons for exploring this endeavour, and what the future might bring for the band. He also discusses the sort of material that the band will be playing in the upcoming London shows (all four of which sold out very quickly), and what sort of material they will be steering clear of - and why.

Whilst the article leads with the well known shot of the Floyd wrapped in pink sheets, there IS a picture of "the Saucers" in action during a showcase from a few months ago, giving you a first look at the band, performing at a rehearsal venue in London.

Elsewhere in the magazine, there's a major piece on Marillion's Brave album, with every band member interviewed, and a look at Procol Harum amongst a number of other artists. There's also a cover-mounted CD to listen to whilst you are reading...

You can purchase Prog Magazine, either as single issues or as a subscription, in the UK and also internationally through this direct link. Prog is also available on iPad, Google Play, Kindle and Nook.
