Pink Floyd on vinyl and TMR exhibition focus in new MINT magazine Print E-mail

MINT magazine issue 23 - Pink Floyd special

The new issue of Germany's MINT Magazine - issue 23, cover date October 2018 - is in stores now, and as the cover images show, should be of much interest to Pink Floyd fans.

MINT is the magazine of German vinyl culture. Since 2015, it has aimed to be the voice of the vinyl community. Eight times a year, MINT specialises in large reports and background reports about the world of vinyl.

The cover story of the new issue deals extensively with the Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains latest staging in Dortmund, at the Dortmunder U. In the 21 page article, titled "The Labyrinth of the Masters", they have an exclusive of Nick Mason guiding the readership through selected exhibits from this latest staging of TMR.

They also include an interview with Aubrey 'Po' Powell and a report on the Pink Floyd archivist Tracey Kraft, who was also in Dortmund for the opening. Elsewhere in the magazine, there's a 15 page look at "Pink Floyd on Vinyl - The Guide to the World of Pressings and Collectibles."

You have two choices of cover - a typical collage of Floydian elements, and the other, an interesting interpretation of the Animals cover, substituting in the Dortmunder U in place of Battersea Power Station. MINT is available in newsagents and in more than 200 record stores, hi-fi dealers. You can also order either cover (or indeed both!) mail order worldwide, through MINTmag.de. Our thanks as ever to Michael Nickel for his help with this information.

 
Nick Mason discusses The Dark Side Of The Moon on BBC 6 Music Print E-mail

Nick Mason and Liz Kershaw, BBC Radio 6 Music, October 2018An interesting new interview with Nick Mason aired at the weekend, on the UK's BBC Radio 6 Music. To help mark National Album Day, Nick was interviewed by presenter Liz Kershaw, giving his thoughts - track by track - about Pink Floyd's 1973 epic The Dark Side Of The Moon.

During the chat with Liz, Nick also talked his new band - Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets, and about the Saucers' recent 21-date European tour that took place in September, following on from the equally critically acclaimed set of four London dates in May.

The show can be heard on demand via the BBC website, for a month from broadcast - so you have until mid-November to listen to this.

 
Reminder: The Pretty Things final concert - guests including David Gilmour Print E-mail

The Pretty Things - final bow concertA reminder for you, in case you are free in mid-December and within reach of the O2 Arena in London: after 55 years of live performing, The Pretty Things - the iconic, 1st wave, R&B cult heroes, formed by ex-Rolling Stone Dick Taylor, and singer, Phil May - will retire from electric performances at the end of this year.

With a huge history of musical and cultural "firsts" at their core - the "longest hair in the world", first ever rock and roll drugs bust, most arrests of any band, first ever "garage" single, first ever rock-opera, first UK band to win Rolling Stone Record of the Year, arrested for discharging a sawn off shotgun, first band to regain full control of its entire recorded catalogue and so on...

With such influential work as their ground-breaking masterpiece and world's first rock opera S. F. Sorrow, which celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year, they remain a hugely significant artistic and creative force. They are now calling it a day on the road, and playing their final ever live show at the end of the year.

This farewell show - in London - will feature guest appearances from significant old friends David Gilmour, Van Morrison and Bill Nighy and promises to be quite a show.

They play this final performance, at Indigo at The O2 on 13 December 2018. Tickets went on sale in May, but unexpectedly there are still some available, via AXS.com.

With The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains now open in Dortmund, at the Dortmunder U, naturally the German media have been investigating, and an interesting video report, which also includes Nick Mason and Aubrey 'Po' Powell, can be viewed below.

This latest staging of the exhibition runs until February 10th 2019 and tickets are now available through this direct link at Eventim.de. As with the London and Rome stagings of the exhibition it is definitely recommended that you book your tickets in advance, to ensure entrance at a time that suits you. Tickets for popular times for the previous stagings (for example, late morning on Saturdays or Sundays) naturally sold strongly, with some time slots selling out completely, so please bear this in mind.

Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets

As a result of the acclaim from critics and fans for the European tour this month by Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets (presenting an expanded version of the set heard at the London shows in May which similarly blew people away), and an indication how much enjoyment the band themselves seem to be getting from the performances, a further set of five shows have just been announced, for England and Wales next April/May.

Tickets for these shows, detailed below, go on sale at 10am on Friday (September 28th) through Ticketmaster, SeeTickets, and other official outlets, and as before, we urge you to snap up your tickets before they all sell out. This is in many people's view, a truly unmissable concert with a well curated set list covering material from the Floyd's early days right up to 1972.

Here's the all-important list of new dates. Which one(s) are you hoping to go to?

Don't forget, tickets go on sale this coming Friday. And those of you across the Atlantic? Nick's and the Saucers' social media make a mildly cryptic comment that "our friends in North America, [should] keep an eye out for an interesting announcement soon..."
