July/August 2023 issue of Drums & Percussion (What Moves Drummers) Magazine (issue 4 of 2023)Our friend Michael Nickel has been in touch with some information about a newly published issue of a German language magazine, which should be of interest to visitors to Brain Damage.

The July/August 2023 issue of Drums & Percussion (What Moves Drummers) Magazine (issue 4 of 2023) has an eye catching cover featuring a very happy looking Nick Mason, in the midst of one of his Saucerful Of Secrets concerts.

The cover story - "Time travel to the beginnings of Pink Floyd" - with Nick interviewed, is accompanied by a potted history of the band. On their website, they give an extract from the magazine feature:

"With his new band Saucerful Of Secrets, the drummer who made music history with Pink Floyd is going way back in time. Here, Nick Mason tells us how this special time travel feels. However, the new band is not the only thing on the mind of the now 79-year-old...

"This year also marks the 50th anniversary of the über-album The Dark Side of the Moon, and then there's also a traveling exhibition about Pink Floyd called Their Mortal Remains - not to mention that Pink Floyd, by the way, has even released a new song after decades of abstinence in protest against the war in Ukraine. More than one topic for a conversation with a legend of our guild.

"Nick, at the Roundhouse in London you played in 1966 and 2019 with at least partly the same songs. Where were the similarities and differences between then and now?

Nick: "That was quite interesting. Of course there were similarities, but also differences: The main ones were on the technical side, because in 1966, for example, there was no stage, but an old trailer and a very small PA or very little electronics. So the whole thing was pretty quiet [laughs]. I mean, at the end of the evening the PA would have been completely destroyed. But musically it was pretty similar in parts, which I found very pleasant."

Our thanks to Michael for the information. The magazine can be purchased online through Sticks.de.
