I did it. Somehow I managed to find what very little spare time I had to work on this month’s edition of Brain Damage. I’m relieved because I didn’t want to skip a month. There’s no theme for this one but its got a nice collection of recordings with a few I’ve never featured before. Its mostly early material book ended with more contemporary solo material. I hope you enjoy it. Here’s the playlist. Please comment and if you can, donate. Thank you!
Polly dropped a bombshell (in a very unFloyd like fashion) on her twitter feed.
“Btw Pink Floyd album out in October is called “The Endless River”. Based on 1994 sessions is Rick Wright’s swansong and very beautiful.”
It all started out as a collection of ideas called “Nothing, Parts 1-24″ (often mislabeled as “Nothing, Parts 1-36″, there were only 24). It was given many names, like, We Won The Double, Return of the Sun of Nothing and later referred to as Looking Through the Knothole in Granny’s Wooden Leg and The March of The Dambusters. Not too confusing but there’s no mistaking it’s one hell of an epic piece of music and perhaps Pink Floyd most iconic. Here’s the playlist but its only one song (guess which one) but seven different versions throughout the years… PING!
There are almost, no words for this. I explain in the podcast but you’ll find lots of unreleased, should have and shouldn’t have been released greatness, as we stray a little off the beaten path of Pink Floyd instrumentals. Here’s the playlist Enjoy!
P.S. share a few words here or on Facebook and let me know your thoughts. Thank you very much indeed.
This show is much better than Floydian Slip’s! haha
From time to time I get requests for old shows… I’m talking about from ten years ago, old. I explain a little more in the podcast. So for this one, I recreated one of the first (or 2nd or 3rd) Brain Damage episodes. Even the delivery I give is very reminiscent to how I did it
way back then. Lots of long songs to chill to for this one because it was intended for late night radio. Here’s the playlist and here’s the original playlist (it’s gotten a little messed up since). Enjoy and if you do, please donate.
It’s crazy to think we’re upon the 20th anniversary of Pink Floyd’s last album and tour. This recording is from the opening night of their Division Bell Tour in Miami, at Joe Robbie Stadium, on the 30th of March 1994. It’s a surprisingly good audience recording. Although there are some problems with sound levels and a few glitches I had to fix. Pink Floyd’s performance is top-notch. Here’s the playlist. Enjoy!
One of the most often asked questions I get is, “Do you have any Wish You Were Here or Animals demo or outtakes”? Well, the answer is still unfortunately no, but I do have these unbelievable alternate, early studio mixes. These surfaced earlier this month and they spread across the Internet like wildfire. Nowhere else can you hear it remastered than right here. Enjoy and please leave a comment! Here’s the playlist (but its pretty obvious).
Here it is, the first podcast of 2014 as Brain Damage enters its 9th year! This particular episode is not for the casual Pink Floyd fan! We cover 40 years of nearly every Pink Floyd or solo member appearance in the Boston and lower New England states. If you’re from the area, you’re gonna LOVE this podcast and if your not, hope you’ll still like it. This is the longest podcast I’ve done so lets dive in! Here’s the playlist. Thank you for your support and don’t forget, please leave comments.
It’s been said Pink Floyd are spokesmen for the disappointed. There’s some truth to that but there’s actually a lot of positive and uplifting material as well. A rather unusual theme for a Pink Floyd radio show, for this we stare into the bright side. What better way to end the year? Thank you for listening and enjoy! (and if you do, please consider a small donation). Here’s the playlist!
