You know it's going to harder,
and harder and harder as
you get older.

Multi-instrumentalist Marvel Years is a true shapeshifter. Melding guitar instrumentation with studio beat making, the Vermont-born, New York-based artist fuels his productions with soul and blues to create the raw, bass-heavy signature sound that’s landed him multiple performances at Red Rocks alongside ZHU, STS9, and Pretty Lights.

Marvel Years now puts his hybrid instrumental and DAW talents on full display in his new Pink Floyd tribute EP, Have a Cigar, which was inspired by childhood years spent listening to classic rock. The two-track EP sees Marvel Years recontextualize an iconic record that soundtracked his adolescence— through both a collaborative cover alongside venerable musicians, as well as a self-produced remix.

“I’ve been playing this song on guitar since I was 10-years-old, and it was an honor to recreate one of the most impactful songs from my childhood alongside some of the most talented musicians I know. I loved the process of remixing our collaborative cover, further putting my own stamp on a record that’s influenced me so heavily.”
– Marvel Years

Music journalist and author Mark Blake sat down with Hipgnosis co-founder Aubrey Powell for 45 minutes about his new book "Through the Prism". Powell talked about Led Zeppelin, Peter Gabriel, Paul McCartney... and of course Pink Floyd.

Powell, meanwhile, gave an update on the status of the Animals remix, which both he and Blake were collaborating on. Powell was responsible for the artwork and Blake wrote the liner notes, which led to disagreements between the band members. David Gilmour and Nick Mason ultimately voted against the additional information. Roger Waters eventually published the liner notes on his website.

Powell confirmed that the Animals' 2018 remix will be out soon. It won’t be June, as previously stated at the Their Mortal Remains exhibition, but it will be available towards the latter end of the year.

:

«Yes, it will be coming out shortly. I was working on it today in fact. I’m just preparing it for release. There is, in fact, a completely new cover for it. It has been shot at Battersea Power Station semi-late at night, and it looks amazing, but it really does look very different. I’m really interested in people being able to see that.

Animals is one of my favourite albums by Pink Floyd just because of the stories attached. You know, the pig flying away. People say it must be a publicity stunt, but no it wasn’t. You see the picture of it in the book and you think, Oh God, am I really responsible for that? But, you know, it wasn’t publicity stuff, but you couldn’t do that now.

I remember going to Battersea Power Station and it was a dump. It was full of coal and debris and broken cars. It was just absolutely horrid. I knocked on the door and a lad answered. I said I was looking for someone important and the chap went, well thats me, and I said I want to fly a pig. He said it was fine but you wouldn’t get away with it these days because you know health and safety.

I remember speaking to Roger and Storm when we got the pig flying because next door to Battersea was the American embassy, who saw it on CCTV and said “Take that down, take that down.”

Not many people know this, but the media reported the band was being charged with flying an undentified flying object. Luckily, a farmer in Kent put a stop to that when he phoned and said are you looking for a pig and I said yes. It was a relief, that can be said. It’s all in the book.»

NICK MASON'S SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS
Royal Albert Hall, London, April 23

Meddle winners! The early Floyd revivalists expand their repertoire

by John Lewis

    "The first time Pink Floyd played here was at an Oxfam benefit in 1966," says Nick Mason, addressing the crowd. “Were any of you there? I think some of you were, but you were so out of it that you've probably forgotten."

    The 5,200-capacity Royal Albert Hall might be a modest-sized venue on a usual Pink Floyd tour, a lot smaller than the arenas and enormodomes that Nick Mason has sold out with David Gilmour and Roger Waters over the years — but it is, by some distance, the biggest date that this motley crew have played since bassist Guy Pratt and guitarist Lee Harris dragged Mason out of retirement four years ago. In 2018, their first Saucerful Of Secrets gigs were at relatively miniscule venues like Dingwalls in Camden and the HalfMoon in Putney, smaller even than the village halls and university common rooms that Mason played with Waters, Richard Wright and Syd Barrett back in 1965.

    So there is an air of triumph and expectation to this date, amplified by the fact that it has been postponed twice due to lockdown requirements. The group’s function is to explore Pink Floyd‘s early, psychedelic soundscapes – bookended by 1967‘s Piper At The Gates Of Dawn and 1972's Obscured By Clouds — material that neither Waters nor Gilmour seem to have any interest in revisiting. It makes the show a fascinating mix of Floyd‘s poppiest, punkiest singles as well as their most exploratory freakouts.

When you're missing someone you love, whether it's an ex, a friend or someone who passed away, here are 15 songs to help you feel like you're not alone.

by May 17, 2022

Some say we are the sum of the people that have touched our lives. In our lifetime we cross paths with thousands of people — most of them inevitably have to part ways with us, but some stay, still others leave a permanent mark. We miss the people who are no longer present, relive the moments over and over, trying to hold on to a fleeting part of ourselves. So Billboard compiled a list of the best “I miss you” songs for you to fill that emotional void as you reminisce about a cherished past.

   Pink Floyd — "Wish You Were Here"

The title track from Pink Floyd’s 1975 follow-up to their massively successful Dark Side of the Moon, “Wish You Were Here” is often considered a tribute to the band’s former frontman Syd Barrett, who had left the group seven years prior. The often-told story of an out-of-shape Barrett’s visit to the recording session, unrecognizable to his ex-bandmates, has become part of the epic rock meditation’s ineffable pathos and grandeur and even part of Barrett’s legacy. Written collectively by David Gilmour and Roger Waters, the song features Gilmour playing a two-bar motif on a twelve-string guitar. “How I wish, how I wish you were here,” Gilmour sings about the crushing loneliness that came with fame. “We’re just two lost souls swimming in a fishbowl year after year.”

Fifty-five years ago, on 12th May 1967, The Pink Floyd performed their first conceptional-like concert named Games for May — Space-age relaxation for the climax of Spring at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London.

Set up by their (then) managers Andrew King and Peter Jenner (Blackhill Enterprises) and it was promoted by classical promoter Christopher Hunt.

It was also the first surround-sound rock concert ever. Thanks to their homemade proto-quadraphonic device, the 'Azimuth Co-ordinator'.

Next to their early songs and recent finished material off their first album The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, the band also presented a totally new song specially written for this event: 'See Emily Play' (eventually then known as 'Games For May', hence its mentioning in the chorus).

Reportedly this song contained slightly different lyrics at that time. 'See Emily Play' was recorded at Sound Techniques in Chelsea not long after the concert and became the Floyd's first Top 10 hit in Great Britain.

Syd, Roger, Rick and Nick performed the following songs at the Games For May concert:

  Matilda Mother
  Flaming
  Scarecrow
  Games For May (See Emily Play)
  Bike
  Arnold Layne
  Candy and a Currant Bun
  Pow R. Toc H.
  Interstellar Overdrive
  Lucifer Sam

Before, during and after the performance a couple of sound effects could be heard. Including 'Dawn' which was a sound collage of bird calls and other natural sounds, this was also played at the foyer of the Hall prior the gig.

Besides Roger throwing potatoes at a large gong, the band (obviously Nick) also chopped up wood on stage while a man (dressed up as an admiral) was giving out daffodils to the audience.

Those lots of flowers and bubbles, produced from a machine (controlled by Rick), while the show was in progress, stained all the furniture in the hall. Because of that, the band was banned from ever playing in the Queen Elizabeth Hall again. Also, the mentioned Azimuth Co-ordinator was stolen right after the show was ending.

Nonetheless this concert is an important chapter in the band's early history.

Much later, rumours went round that the concert was taped via professional (multitrack) recording devices by EMI, but Peter Jenner denied this. Though some visitors believed to have seen recording machines at the venue, no true evidence ever came up.

The last live performance of Pink Floyd with David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright all together in 2007. This special performance of Arnold Layne took place at the Syd Barrett Tribute Concert'The Madcap’s Last Laugh' (produced by Nick Laird-Clowes with Associate Producer Joe Boyd) held at The Barbican on May 10th 2007. The Pink Floyd members were augmented by Jon Carin (Keyboards, vocals) and Andy Bell from Oasis on bass guitar. After a star-studded line-up throughout the evening, Pink Floyd took to the stage for an incredibly emotional finale.

The concert was held to pay homage to Barrett, who had died a year earlier and sadly became the final performance of the band to include Richard Wright, who passed away the year after.

At his age, 78-year-old Nick Mason could be forgiven for wanting to spend more time with his cars, or counting his money. But in one of the more unexpected Heritage Prog moves of recent years, he's chosen to go on the road to celebrate Pink Floyd's early psychedelic era — especially the work of the late Syd Barrett, for whom he retains a great deal of affection ("Without him, none of us would be here," he remarks at one point).

For the real oldsters, this is an opportunity to revisit their youth. Lucky bastards. For the rest of us, it's a chance to enjoy music that we never expected to experience live. As the keeper of Floyd history, Mason reportedly has a spreadsheet of every show they ever did, so is able to tell us that he last played in Bath at the Pavilion 55 years ago (April 10 1967, if I'm not mistaken). The 1970 Bath Festival, at which Atom Heart Mother was unveiled, doesn't count because it actually took place in Shepton Mallet. I'll get me coat...

British rock band Pink Floyd is exploring a sale of its recorded music catalog, which includes some of the best-selling albums in history.

Representatives for the band have reached out to potential buyers, according to three people familiar with the matter who asked to not be identified because the discussions are private. The process began in the last few days, and it’s too early to know what the outcome will be, they said. Representatives of the band didn’t respond to requests for comment.

Pink Floyd is looking to capitalize on what has been a frothy market for music rights and score a deal worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Just last year, Bob Dylan sold his recordings to Sony Music in a deal estimated to be worth . Deals for songwriting catalogs have eclipsed $300 million.

While the market for some music rights has begun to soften, that shouldn’t hurt a band like Pink Floyd. The group has sold 75 million records in the U.S. alone, the 10th most of any artist, according to the .

Pink Floyd had heaviness in their DNA from day one — just not always the head-banging type.

Back in their early days, psych-rock classics like "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun" offered a visceral power maximized via cranked-up amplifiers. And after the 1968 exit of original mastermind Syd Barrett, as they moved from small clubs to stadiums, the band organically inched toward the flash and muscle of hard rock. While they were never virtuosos, some of their signature songs — including highlights from The Wall and The Dark Side of the Moon — were carried by David Gilmour's bluesy, lyrical lead guitar. When the mood struck (and the concept supported it), they could rip with the best of them.

While we haven't necessarily rounded up their best tunes, this list does point to a fascinating intersection of intensity and quality. Here are the 10 Heaviest Pink Floyd Songs.

David Gilmour: «If Nick and I, as the two members of Pink Floyd, feel like that's we ought to do, what we owe the world, and than that is what we should do. We haven't even thought about doing live shows, I say, I guess it's a possibility but I haven't done for such a long time. But who knows, I don't know...»
