On The (Ski) Run - limited edition Pink Floyd Dark Side skis created Print E-mail

Limited Edition Icelantic X Pink Floyd Nomad 105 skisWith the Northern Hemisphere ski season just beginning in a number of countries, a new, officially licensed set of skis - which have gone on sale today - will bring the Dark Side to all that white stuff on the slopes!

IcelanticSkis have created their Limited Edition Icelantic X Pink Floyd Nomad 105 collaboration - and the skis look great. Icelantic note that the skis "feature George Hardie and British design group Hipgnosis' original sketches on the tails, and the now iconic prism/colour beam image on the tips of Icelantic's top-selling freeride tool, the Nomad 105. Our Design Director has re-imagined the beams to reflect off the edges of the skis and cascade toward each other, creating a relationship between concept and final artwork."

As you'll see from the video below, the skis are handmade (in Denver, Colorado, USA) and come with a three year warranty. They come in five lengths and can be ordered now. However, as they are a limited edition, if you DO want to snap up a pair, we suggest you don't leave it too long!

Pink Floyd book author and friend of Brain Damage, Ian Priston, also collaborates on a podcast - Fingal's Cave - that has a focus on more in-depth subjects related to the band.

He has just published an extensive and exclusive interview with Rosemary Breen, Syd Barrett's sister - the person who knew Syd/Roger the best. It's a fascinating glimpse into Barrett, and you can watch it in full here:

Happy Halloween! It's time: the 2023 Pink Floyd pumpkin is unveiled... Print E-mail

Happy Halloween to you all! Regulars to Brain Damage over the years will know that our friend Joe Ringus is a hugely talented pumpkin artist, and each year crafts a Pink Floyd themed pumpkin for Halloween (which is celebrated by many, principally this evening, but in a number of places it covers a number of days).

Those regulars will no doubt be as keen as we have been to see if Joe would be continuing the tradition this year, and if so, what design would be picked. The great news is that Joe has been hard at work yet again, and has done a lovely job yet again! We're delighted to share his incredible carving with you.

Thanks Joe - we think you've done another superb job! It's a great tradition and we know many of our visitors love to see them.

If there are any other pumpkin artists out there who have created Floyd designs, we'd love to see them.

Pink Floyd Hakone/Atom Heart Mother special edition release announced Print E-mail

Pink Floyd Hakone/Atom Heart Mother special edition CD/Blu-ray with memorabilia packageJust announced is the worldwide release - housed in a 7" gatefold sleeve - of a special edition of Atom Heart Mother, originally sold only in Japan in August 2021. This is a very interesting package celebrating the 50th anniversary of Pink Floyd's pair of concerts at Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park, Hakone, Japan - the band's first in that country. This special edition will be available from December 8th, 2023.

The background to the release is this: an original 16mm film of Atom Heart Mother from the 1971 Hakone Aphrodite shows was recently discovered in a fan's garage. A long time was spent digitizing, restoring and remastering, and to mark the 50th anniversary of the '71 Hakone Aphrodite event, a special edition (a two disc set of a CD and Blu-ray) of the Atom Heart Mother album was released in Japan. Now, finally, this enhanced video will be released outside of Japan.

The Blu-ray disc contains the restored footage of Atom Heart Mother, showing the band on stage performing the song, and travelling around Japan, together with some additional bonus footage of Pink Floyd's crew, setting up the show, dealing with issues, etc., which hasn't been seen before.

The pack comes with a 60-page photo book with never-seen-before photos, a reproduction programme, venue map flyer, Osaka show poster and Hakone Aphrodite ticket reprint which all looks great!

A very nicely put together package - and orders are now possible through a number of retailers. Ordering any item after entering Amazon through our links helps with BD's ongoing running costs as we participate in their affiliate programme, at no extra cost to yourselves, and we really appreciate it: Amazon UK,, Amazon Canada, Amazon France, Amazon Germany, Amazon Spain and Amazon Italy. You can also order through

If you want to see a quick comparison of a short part of the footage, comparing the newly restored film with what many of us will have been familiar with for many years, here's something that Sony Music Japan put together in 2021:
