Heyou Issue 41 - October 2023Some magazine news for you this morning! Just published is the latest issue (number 41 - cover date October 2023) of the Pink Floyd fanzine "Heyou" run by our friends over at the Italian website of the same name. The 52-page dual language magazine (in Italian and English), which is normally published every six months or so (but in this case, three months after the last issue!), catches up with things in the Floyd world.

The magazine has two main areas of focus for its coverage in this issue, with the 50th anniversary of The Dark Side Of The Moon taking the lion's share. This starts with a ten-page montage of magazine covers, all of which focus on Pink Floyd and their 1973 album, all recently published and commemorating the 50th anniversary of the release.

There's a look at the design of the 50th anniversary box set, discussing the ideas behind the different elements, with the how and why of their inclusion.

The final section of the magazine is taken up with an eight page interview with collector extraordinaire Stefano Tarquini - also known as Mr Pinky - and is the second half of the interview started in the previous issue. Stefano's latest book is a guide to The Dark Side Of The Moon on vinyl, revealing over 700 variants known at the time of going to press (Stefano has since added to his incredible collection of this album) and the book can be ordered direct from Floydstuff.com. It's an incredible piece of work, and shows how dedicated us collectors can be at times! Stefano gives background to his life and how his interest in music - and Pink Floyd in particular - grew, and what drew him to collect, and focus on, The Dark Side Of The Moon in particular. As he acknowledges, the book will need an update at some point as more variants have appeared since, quite incredibly.

All this is preceded by a lengthy (taking up half of the magazine) and detailed review of the Roger Waters show in Bologna as part of his This Is Not A Drill tour. Accompanied by some good pictures of the concert, the reviewer is clearly a big fan of Waters and his views, and of this latest live production. The reviewer goes into close examination of the ideas and themes of the show, explaining it step-by-step.

The Heyou website can now be found through this link at www.heyou.it, where you can get individual copies (including back issues), and subscription enquiries (four issues costing 35 euros within Europe, and 45 euros outside Europe) should go to This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it - make sure you mention Brain Damage when you write!
