Ron Geesin - The Flaming Cow: The Making of Pink Floyd's Atom Heart MotherRon Geesin's 'The Flaming Cow: The Making of Pink Floyd's Atom Heart Mother' has been getting very positive feedback from all aspects of the Floyd community. The book gives Ron's own perspective on the project, and it really is a fantastic read! From Nick Mason's amusing foreword, through the story of how Ron got to know the various members of the Floyd, to co-composing and recording the piece variously known as Epic and The Amazing Pudding, before settling on the title we all know and love, the book reveals all with a great wit and honesty, along with masses of previously unseen photos from the recording sessions.

We were fortunate enough to have five copies to give away as competition prizes. We were inundated with entries, all correctly noting that the cover star's name was Lulubelle III, and we've just drawn the winners this afternoon. So, hearty congratulations goes to:

  • Alexey Vasilev, Moscow, Russian Federation
  • Brian White, Newcastle, England
  • BobFloyd, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA
  • Jane Philips, Cardiff, Wales
  • Johan Kuiper, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Your books will be sent out in the next couple of days, and for the many who entered who weren't fortunate enough to be plucked from the Brain Damage "hat", we've got another couple of competitions coming soon, so all is not lost!

If you were unlucky this time, and want to add the book to your collection, you can use these direct links: Amazon UK,,, Amazon France, Amazon Germany, Amazon Espana and Amazon Italy. For those who prefer the convenience of reading on their Apple iThings, the eBook version is now available to purchase and download from the iTunes Bookstore, at a newly-reduced price - so no better time to snap it up! There are enhancements and extras over the print edition - principally, you can see Ron answering questions submitted by Brain Damage visitors about Atom Heart Mother, in a fascinating two-part video Q&A session, which was conducted by me in Ron's own studio...
