NEW MUSIC: Vivid – Unreal

Twangy and shimmering – this is how Vivid describe their music. I couldn’t agree more. Hailing from Copenhagen, the Danish quartet combine 80s New Wave with 90s power-pop resulting in melodic experimentation. Originally founded by Mads Mundt, Troels Siggard and Markus Drag of the alternative group Panda Cash, Vivid diverges from Panda Cash’s punk-rock sound. …

Rare David Gilmour/Guy Pratt collab in Record Store Day 2020

Following on from our recent news that the 2020 Record Store Day would be including amongst the raft of rarities, available on April 18th at participating stores (and not online) releases from Roger Waters, Pink Floyd and Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets, there's a fourth item of interest for Floyd fans included on the list. It's also something that has been the subject of rumour in the past…and now can be confirmed.The 1995 film Hackers had an interesting music soundtrack, and in particular, an instrumental heard at the climax of the film. In a sequence at New York's Grand Central Station, there is a joint piece by Guy Pratt and David Gilmour to accompany the scene. Rolling Stone did the reveal: Gilmour visited the home of Guy Pratt, Pink Floyd's touring bassist since Momentarily Lapse of Reason, while the bassist was working on music for the 1995 movie. The meet-up became an impromptu jam session that became 'Grand Central Station'. In the film's credits, the song was only credited to the mysterious sounding Deep Cover .The exclusive 13-track, 2LP Record Store Day edition of the album will mark the soundtrack's debut on vinyl and will feature tracks that were not included on the original album, including 'Protection' by Massive Attack, 'Open Up' by Leftfield, two pieces by Guy Pratt (including 'Grand Central Station') plus the 'Hackers Suite', performed by composer Simon Boswell.The gatefold jacket will offer new liner notes from the film's director, Iain Softley, as well as unreleased photos of the cast. The CD and digital edition of Hackers (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), which appears the previous day (April 17th) direct from Varese Sarabande (https://www.varesesarabande.com/products/hackers) will include an additional six tracks.As with the other RSD 2020 releases, it is a limited edition: often the RSD releases are pressed up as just a couple of thousand or so worldwide. We understand that there are going to be 2,500 of these available to snap up on the day.And, as we've mentioned previously, these limited edition items are released via RSD participating stores on 18th April 2020 – go to RecordStoreDay.com (http://www.recordstoreday.com/) for more details of who those will be. A reminder that it will ONLY be these stores participating; the stores themselves can't sell it online – the record will become available for customers coming through the door of the store from the morning of the 18th (and not before), in limited quantities – first come, first served, and only one copy per customer. After RSD, if copies remain, they may put them for sale online (and of course, there'll also be copies on eBay inevitably…).

Large Pink Floyd feature in latest issue of UK’s Uncut Magazine

available online worldwide (https://www.newsstand.co.uk/140-TV-and-Film-Magazines/6457-Subscribe-to-UNCUT-Magazine-Subscription.aspx), and has a large feature on Pink Floyd, with a number of new interviews with key personnel, as the band gets ready to release The Later Years box set, and 2LP/1CD highlights sets (http://www.brain-damage.co.uk/latest/pink-floyd-the-later-years-box-set-price-drop-plus-hear-high-hopes-early-ver.html). In the feature, Uncut’s Tom Pinnock talks to David Gilmour, Nick Mason, creative director Aubrey ‘Po’ Powell and long-time engineer Andy Jackson about regrouping following Waters’ departure in December 1985. By 1984, Roger had very obviously decided that enough was enough for him, Gilmour said, and I hadn’t decided that enough was enough for me. So I imagine I thought, ‘Yes, we’ll go back to doing [Floyd].’ David was very determined not to be told that he can’t do it any more, explained Andy Jackson. In some ways you could interpret Roger saying, ‘There is no more Pink Floyd’ as [from David’s point of view], ‘Well, you can’t tell me that…’ He had the desire to carry on as a band, so he had to make that work really. We were trying to make something that sounded very much of the time, which means of course that as time progresses it ends up sounding dated. As Bob Ezrin was prone to do, at the start of the [Momentary Lapse Of Reason] album he came in with a stack of CDs and said, ‘This is what’s happening now.’ In ’86, digital was very much at the forefront. [Dire Straits’] Brothers In Arms had just come out and that had a very particular sound, and that was one bar Bob said we should be aiming for. Nick Mason: We sort of laid everything on it. There was a sense of trepidation over what it would be like without Roger, so we slightly over-egged the pudding in terms of lots of session players. Some of it’s overproduced, far too much stuff on it… I thought it didn’t really sound like a Pink Floyd record, said bassist Guy Pratt, who joined the band in 1987 for their live work, but it was a very good record. It’s very of its time – Floyd were suited to ’80s bombast. Most of you will be aware that the box set includes a remixed and updated version of the AMLOR album. By returning to some of Richard Wright’s keyboard parts and recording new drum tracks with Nick Mason, producers David Gilmour and Bob Ezrin are said to have restored the creative balance between the three Pink Floyd members. The release of the One Slip remix today has caused quite a buzz in the Floyd community, as the work undertaken on it seems to have paid handsome dividends. We’re even more eager to hear the rest of the album now! If you can’t find the December 2019 issue of Uncut at your local UK store, order online now (https://www.newsstand.co.uk/140-TV-and-Film-Magazines/6457-Subscribe-to-UNCUT-Magazine-Subscription.aspx). The issue comes with Bob Dylan on the cover and an exclusive unreleased Dylan track on the free, cover mounted CD. Elsewhere in the issue, there’s Robert Smith, Nick Cave The Bad Seeds, Prince, Joni Mitchell, Bruce Springsteen, Jeff Lynne, Booker T, Tindersticks and much more…
