Further Mexican date added to 2022 Roger Waters tour

Some great news for those of you in (or able to travel to) Mexico – another date on the Roger Waters This Is Not A Drill 2022 tour (https://www.brain-damage.co.uk/2020-tour-zone/index.php) has been added. Roger and his band will be bringing his “in the round” show to the Arena Monterrey in Monterrey, Mexico, on October 11th, 2022 (https://www.brain-damage.co.uk/2022-tour-zone/october-11th-arena-monterrey-monterrey-mexico.html). Tickets for the show go on sale on Tuesday, November 30th through www.superboletos.com (http://www.superboletos.com/) and possibly Ticketmaster.com.mx (http://www.ticketmaster.com.mx/). As normal, we have set up a specific page on Brain Damage for this show – there’s a page for EVERY upcoming concert, which before the show will have details of ticketing, maps, web links, and more; after the show, it is there for your reviews and pictures, and we welcome (and really appreciate) every contribution however large or small! Should any further concerts be added to the tour, we will let you know. At present, the tour is ONLY taking in venues in the US, Canada and Mexico. If (and it’s a big if) any dates are added elsewhere we will let you know. We’ve had a lot of emails asking if Roger will be playing in Europe or the UK, and at present, there is no indication that he will. Hopefully that will change, but at the moment, we are suspecting this unlikely.

New book reveals unseen early Pink Floyd photographs

Orders are now being taken (https://www.floydstuff.com/product/5834477/pink-floyd-the-nico-van-der-stam-archives-holland-book) for a book stuffed with incredible Pink Floyd pictures from 1967 onwards. Limited to just 1000 numbered copies (which are expected to sell quickly), Pink Floyd – The Nico van der Stam Archives, published on December 1st, 2021, is presented as a deluxe clothbound and hardback edition, with 112 heavyweight pages, and signed by the author. His images of Syd Barrett’s The Pink Floyd from 1967 are of an iconic beauty. However, few people in the Netherlands – and even less abroad – associate these photos with photographer Nico van der Stam (Rotterdam 1925 – Amsterdam 2000), who captured the band in Amsterdam in April 1967, and again two months later in London. Initially focused on documenting everyday city life and the flourishing local jazz scene, Van der Stam soon turned his lens on the emerging pop music, photographing such luminaries as Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, The Mothers Of Invention, The Doors, Cream, Janis Joplin, The Kinks, The Supremes and The Pink Floyd. He was regularly found in studios where artists were recording for radio and television. “I went to the studios, took pictures of rehearsals and recordings and then sold them to the broadcasting companies.” The few pictures of Pink Floyd that are previously published – without exception in a characteristic square format and not normally seen in colour – are just an excerpt from Van der Stam’s immense catalogue which holds over a million negatives. For this new book, Floydstuff’s Charles Beterams has taken a deep dive into Van der Stam’s archive, exploring and unearthing the photographer’s breathtaking oeuvre. An unprecedented amount of newly discovered Pink Floyd transparencies and negatives – starting with those from the aforementioned 1967 sessions of the band in all its psychedelic glory – have been catalogued, scanned and retouched for the very first time. Nico van der Stam also took pictures of Pink Floyd during their 1969 and 1970 concerts at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw. By the time the band played the Rotterdam Ahoy’ in 1971, he was no longer doing concert photography himself, assigning requisite duties to his then assistant Govert de Roos, who went on to become a renowned photographer in his own right and kindly provides the foreword to this book. Most of the pictures from these three gigs are available to the public eye for the very first time. Pink Floyd – The Nico van der Stam Archives is not only a well-deserved tribute to a unique photo press agency but also an impressive and hitherto unseen insight into the legendary British band’s defining years. Sounds like another essential purchase to us! The text in the book is in English, and you can secure your copy now through Floydstuff.com (https://www.floydstuff.com/product/5834477/pink-floyd-the-nico-van-der-stam-archives-holland-book), who will ship the book worldwide. To coincide with the publishing of the book, Maria Austria Instituut – which preserves Nico’s archives – has made three of his most iconic images available as limited art prints – one of them by Pink Floyd. They can be ordered directly from the Maria Austria Instituut (https://www.maibeeldbank.nl/mai/over-mai).

Mojo: The Collectors’ Series Pink Floyd Deluxe Anthology Edition

Available to order online (https://www.greatmagazines.co.uk/mojo-the-collectors-series-pink-floyd-deluxe-anthology-edition) and hitting UK stores today is a new publication – MOJO The Collectors’ Series – PINK FLOYD: ECHOES 1965-2021 – Deluxe Anthology Edition (https://www.greatmagazines.co.uk/mojo-the-collectors-series-pink-floyd-deluxe-anthology-edition). In early 2019, Mojo (the highly respected UK music magazine) published a two part look at the Floyd’s history: Echoes 1965-1973 and Echoes 1974-2019. They’ve now taken those two and created a new, 260-page “bookazine” blending both into what they call “one sumptuous Deluxe Anthology Edition”. Printed on premium quality paper and with heavy card covers, ECHOES 1965-2021 sees Mojo’s writers – including biographer Mark Blake (he of the excellent Pigs Might Fly (https://www.brain-damage.co.uk/books/pigs-might-fly-the-inside-story-of-pink-floyd-2013-edition-mark.html) biography of the band) – unfold Pink Floyd’s tale with their typical knowledge and passion, beginning with the band’s early years as ’60s psychedelic pioneers fronted by Syd Barrett, before journeying through the triumphs and travails of the iconic Waters-Gilmour-Wright-Mason line-up, revisiting their mid-’80s rebirth and continuing right up to the present day. You’ll find the stories behind each of the group’s albums and their guide to what they consider the greatest tracks, as well as fascinating accounts of Mojo’s exclusive face-to-face encounters with Pink Floyd’s members down the years. It’s available from a number of UK stores, but also available to order online (for worldwide despatch) via the GreatMagazines (https://www.greatmagazines.co.uk/mojo-the-collectors-series-pink-floyd-deluxe-anthology-edition) website.

Gerald Scarfe: The Art Of Pink Floyd The Wall – hardback book

To be published (with a slight delay to the previous date) on December 2nd, 2021 by Little, Brown, is The Art Of Pink Floyd The Wall. This is a beautiful new, 288-page hardback book, in landscape format housed within a cardboard sleeve (shown to the right), that reveals a huge amount of rare and previously unseen sketches, paintings and more, created by Gerald Scarfe principally for The Wall project, but also including earlier materials, for Wish You Were Here and Animals, for example. It is an expensive book, but the work involved bringing together the breadth of material within, and the quality of its presentation, help to justify the price tag. Prefaced with a slightly bizarre foreword by Roger Waters (that is not overly illuminating!), Scarfe’s lengthy and absorbing introduction reveals that his first experience of Pink Floyd at UFO in London, 1967. Fast forward to 1973 and – in Nick Mason’s kitchen – Scarfe was asked to work on stuff for the Floyd’s upcoming Wish You Were Here project, specifically animations for the live shows, and of course, the 1974 Winter Tour programme and poster. Even at this stage, the rare images start to flow, with more traditional and recognisable sketches of the band members during their rehearsals, and a spider becoming a screaming Medusa head for Shine On You Crazy Diamond. Of course, the main body of the book concerns his work with Roger Waters and the rest of the band from 1978 onwards. Waters presented his raw demo tapes and explained the concept to Scarfe, who then set about designing the various characters who would inhabit the story; these would inevitably change as the process went on, and some never went past the initial few months (such as Punch and Judy being the main characters). The introduction continues with thoughts of the live show, including the inflatable slug or worm that would be transported from location to location to play the concerts in a venue that the band had total control over. Scarfe discusses his experience of the actual concerts, then talks about the “final part of Roger’s original ambition” for The Wall – the feature film. Scarfe then touches on the Waters Pros & Cons project, including the origins of the name Reg. He concludes the introduction by setting out his aims for this book, looking at things up to current times, and how going through his archives revealed to him that he could cover the whole story – and also showed him that some of the elements were in retrospect very personal to him and his life. The conclusion of the introduction also sees the end of Scarfe’s narrative in a traditional sense, with the rest of the book taken up with a couple of hundred further pages entirely taken up with pictures, paintings, drawings, and more, all accompanied with Scarfe’s footnotes about each image. This arguably works much better, as he isn’t forced into coming up with a narrative which isn’t really needed. It also allows him the ability to give short, pithy, and sometimes amusing captions which wouldn’t fit in to a more conventional rundown.

New issue of Italian/English Floyd fanzine Heyou now available

Just published is the latest issue (number 37 – cover date November 2021) 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 published every six months or so, catches up with things in the Floyd world. The magazine starts with an interesting, 21 page analysis of The Final Cut, via a piece written by Loudersound that brings in various comments made in interviews over the years, and this is presented with some familiar, and some not so familiar, images and pictures of releases from various countries. Turning the clock back, the magazine then celebrates 51 years of Atom Heart Mother, via a not totally complimentary article by Sputnikmusik and some interesting pictures, including posters, promotional items and suchlike. Also in the magazine is the third and concluding part of a detailed article looking at the run of Wall concerts in 1980/1981, focusing on exactly what happened during the shows. The article was put together in conjunction with Vernon Fitch, a name familiar to many of you as a Floyd fan with an encyclopaedic knowledge. The article is illustrated with some very interesting photographs of the concert, tickets, passes, and more. The final section of the magazine is normally devoted to the latest news. Now, there hasn’t been too much of that over the months since the last issue was printed, but a surprising omission nonetheless. As regular visitors to BD will attest, there ARE still things going on, tour dates being announced, releases happening, and exhibitions opening! Instead, though, there are reviews of five recently published books, which give a flavour of each and should help guide prospective purchasers to whether each book is worth investing in. The books covered are Pink Floyd A Brescia, Pink Floyd Live Tour In Japan 1971-1988, Chris Hewitt’s Development Of Large Rock Sound Systems, Pink Floyd – The Rob Verhorst Archives, and the exhibition catalogue/book for the Mark Fisher Drawing Entertainment event. They concurred with Brain Damage with their praise for the latter four in the list, but weren’t impressed with the first of the books (one that we’ve not seen ourselves). More details of the Heyou fanzine can be found at www.heyou.it/fsubscrbd.html (http://www.heyou.it/fsubscrbd.html), where you can get individual copies, and subscription enquiries (four issues costing 35 euros within Europe, and 45 euros outside Europe) should go to durgaheyou@libero.it (mailto:durgaheyou@libero.it?subject=Heyou%20enquiry%20from%20BD%20visitor) – make sure you mention Brain Damage when you write!

Happy Halloween 2021 – the Pink Floyd pumpkin is here!

Happy Halloween! Regulars to Brain Damage over the years will know that our good friend Joe Ringus is a hugely talented pumpkin artist, and each year crafts a Pink Floyd themed pumpkin for Halloween (a celebration which is embraced by many, principally tonight, 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 another phenomenal job! We’re delighted to share his incredible carving with you, which is a representation of the key detail on the cover of the Floyd’s A Momentary Lapse Of Reason. This is very timely with the release on Friday of the Remixed & Updated edition (https://www.brain-damage.co.uk/latest/pink-floyds-a-momentary-lapse-of-reason-remix-2lp-vinyl-cd-dvd-blu-ray-and-360-reality-a.html) of the album! Joe said: “For the longest time I didn’t think this design would be possible on a pumpkin. But with limited design selections left to choose from, it was time to give it a try! It was also fitting that it coincided with the remix of A Momentary Lapse Of Reason! Happy Halloween!” Thanks Joe – we think you’ve done another excellent 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. Also, if you have any suggestions for other images Joe could tackle in future years, please contact us at the normal email address of Matt@Brain-Damage.co.uk and we’ll pass on your ideas to him.

Animals Reimagined – A Tribute To Pink Floyd out next month

Following on from the successful June release of Still Wish You Were Here, a project that gathered various classic, prog and art rock musicians together to cover that album, the people behind it have brought together a similar mix of musicians to cover Pink Floyd’s 1977 album, Animals. Animals Reimagined – A Tribute To Pink Floyd is set for release on November 19th, 2021, on both CD and digital with a vinyl version coming in 2022. The previous album, Still Wish You Were Here – whilst dividing the Floyd fanbase – got a number of plaudits for its approach to the music, and with its success it is no surprise that another of the Floyd’s albums would undergo the same treatment. As before, a fairly diverse line-up can be heard on the album, with the likes of jazz-rock guitarist Al Di Meola, psych-rock godfather Arthur Brown, world renowned drummer and percussionist Carmine Appice, UFO’s Vinnie Moore, Bauhaus’s David J, Dream Theater’s James LaBrie, the legend that is Rick Wakeman, and Rainbow vocalist Graham Bonnet all coming together to give their unique flavour to this magnum opus. For a taster, you can hear their version of Dogs, a 17-minute version sung by Rainbow’s Graham Bonnet with Vinnie Moore on guitar, Utopia’s Kasim Sulton on bass, Dream Theater’s Jordan Rudess on keyboards, and King Crimson drummer Pat Mastelotto. Click here for your choice of streaming service to hear Dogs (https://orcd.co/graham_bonnet_vinnie_moore_dogs). Arthur Brown (best known for his band The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown, and their UK and US hit single Fire) gives a particularly spirited performance on Sheep, which if you know Arthur, won’t come as much of a surprise! Here’s the track list, with the names of the musicians playing on each of them: Pigs On A Wing 1 – Nick van Eede (Cutting Crew) & Martin Barre (Jethro Tull)
Dogs – Graham Bonnet (Rainbow), Vinnie Moore (UFO), Kasim Sulton (Utopia), Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater) & Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson)
Pigs (Three Different Ones) – James LaBrie (Dream Theater), Al Di Meola, Joe Bouchard (Blue Öyster Cult), Patrick Moraz (The Moody Blues) & Billy Cobham (Mahavishnu Orchestra)
Sheep – Arthur Brown, Rick Wakeman (Yes), Jan Akkerman (Focus), David J. (Bauhaus) & Carmine Appice (Cactus/Vanilla Fudge)
Pigs On A Wing 2 – Jon Davison (lead vocalist for Yes), Albert Lee & Billy Sherwood (Yes) If this has intrigued you, orders are now being taken through the following links, which help us out with the ongoing running costs of Brain Damage without costing you a thing – and we really appreciate the help! The album will be available on CD in a 6-panel deluxe digipak, digitally as MP3 files, and a vinyl LP is coming next year (but not yet available to order).

Pink Floyd film soundtrack feature in new issue of Shindig! Magazine

new issue (number 120) of the UK’s Shindig! Magazine (https://www.silverbackpublishing.rocks/product/pre-order-shindig-120-on-sale-7th-october/) is in stores now, and as its cover picture shows, has an item of interest to Pink Floyd fans. Within the pages of the magazine is an eight page feature looking at the Floyd’s work over their early years creating accompanying music to a range of films, with a focus on Peter Whitehead’s Tonite Let’s All Make Love In London, Barbet Schroeder’s More, Michelangelo Antonioni’s Zabriskie Point, and Schroeder’s La Vallee (which lead to the album Obscured By Clouds). There’s the odd mention of other work they did (such as touching on The Committee). The article is an interesting summation of their work on these films, how they approached the writing of the songs, and how the recordings were done – in some instances, with very little time to come up with suitable music to accompany the onscreen action, or with demanding director’s who dismissed each offering with a different criticism.. Elsewhere in the magazine are features on XTC’s Andy Partridge, Dion, and The Move. It’s in all good UK stores now, and available to purchase online worldwide via Silverback Publishing’s website (https://www.silverbackpublishing.rocks/product/pre-order-shindig-120-on-sale-7th-october/).
