Time Machine

timeLive from The Rainbow Theater in Finsbury Park, London.  This was the second of two shows on the 4th of November 1973.  This particular gig started at 9pm and was done to benefit former Soft Machine front-man Robert Wyatt who had broken his spine after falling from a third floor window during a party.

This was the last time Pink Floyd performed the same night with their friends, Soft Machine apart from Nick Mason who occasionally played drums for Robert Wyatt in solo projects, including Nick Mason’s Fictitious Sports. This was also the last concert of 1973, before Pink Floyd’s 1974 French Tour and it was the last time material from Obscured By Clouds would be performed live.  It’s a great performance! Here’s the setlist.


On The Rocks

BD214The idea of this edition of Brain Damage comes to us from Brett in Tampa Florida.  The concept is Floyd songs that rock. He came up with a pretty good selection of  songs that rock, in his opinion (and mine), in no specific order.  Here’s Brett’s playlist. Enjoy!

If you have any suggestions for a themed playlist, email them to me at thedoctor@floydpodcast.com


English Summer

BD213This edition of Brain Damage is the perfect soundtrack to your lazy summer day.  It’s very similar to an older, popular themed podcast, SundownGrab an iced tea, or lemonade, kick your feet up and relax.  You deserve it!  Here’s the playlist.  Enjoy!


Sweet July

Pink+FloydI 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!



echoIt 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!


Lost For Words

no-words_siteThere 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



bd209From 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.


Opening Bell

pink_floyd_the_division_bell_ana_by_madforstereo-d5g996nIt’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!
