Many happy returns, Roger Waters!

The combined wishes of all of us on the Brain Damage team, along no doubt with many of you reading this, go to Roger Waters, who celebrates his 76th birthday today! Roger was born in Great Bookham, Surrey, in 1943, moving to Cambridge when he was two years old. It was there that he met, and became childhood friends with, a number of key people in the story of Pink Floyd. Of course, Roger has been extremely busy over the last few years, having successfully taken Dark Side Of The Moon on tour in 2006, through to 2008. On completing that, he immediately started work on a new version of The Wall – which finally opened in September 2010. That tour was spectacularly successful, wrapping up in Paris for show number 217 in September 2013. Recordings of that tour turned into the film, shown in cinemas and released on DVD/Blu-ray and as part of a mammoth, Super Deluxe Edition. More recently, he performed his highly acclaimed Us + Them world tour, which was filmed and will be in cinemas worldwide at the start of next month (with tickets now on sale), prior to (hopefully) a domestic release. He’s also released his latest solo album, Is This The Life We Really Want? as well as overseeing the release of the late Nick Sedgwick’s book about the band, and in particular, the 1974 tour of The Dark Side of the Moon, and this week appeared outside the UK’s Home Office, performing Wish You Were Here on acoustic guitar with Andy Fairweather-Low, in support of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. We hope you have a great day, Roger. Many happy returns!

INTERVIEW: Bright Orange Spectacle

Before their highly anticipated Camden Assembly show, we sat down with self-titled “millennial glam” newcomers Bright Orange Spectacle, who refuse to be known as yet another generic indie band and rightly so, there’s nothing generic about this quartet who blend old but gold music influences with a very modern, zesty twist. Bright Orange Spectacle may be …

Pink Floyd: The Black Strat – revised 4th edition book now available

now available to order exclusively from Amazon UK (http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0955663512/braindamage-21). A few copies appeared in the gift shop of the V A museum when the Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains was on there, but this handful of books quickly went. The news that it is available again will be music to many ears, as it really is a great book fully deserving of a space on your Floydian bookshelf! Now expanded to 256 pages, the fourth edition brings the story pretty much up to date, including the brace of incredible Pompeii concerts performed by David, and the V A staging of the Floyd exhibition. The only thing missing is its sale at the recent auction at Christie’s New York, in aid of ClientEarth, the environmental charity, when the guitar passed into new hands, hopefully to create more music in the future. The book contains plenty of new information as well as many more unpublished photographs, recently come to light, that further chart the Black Strat’s illustrious history. Amending and elaborating on the previous editions, it is an incredible labour of love to document every aspect of this instrument, yet never get too technical for the more casual enthusiast, or Floyd fan who doesn’t play guitar. You can order the book now through this direct link to Amazon UK (http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0955663512/braindamage-21), where it is exclusively available. They will ship books worldwide so if outside Purchasing things after entering Amazon through our links really helps with site running costs, and we really appreciate it!

Interview: The Lost Hours

Poignant lyricism and silk-soft vocals symphonise To Be Alone – the dreamy new single from Leeds-based singer-songwriter Callum James Hamilton, aka The Lost Hours. What begins as a contemplative, minimal arrangement soon evolves into a gentle indie folk anthem, exploring the parallels of hope and fear. I had a chat with Callum about the impact …
