David’s “Meltdown”

David Gilmour was the featured artist for the 2001 Robert Wyatt Meltdown Festival and took the opportunity to strip things down and play semi-acoustic versions of classic Floyd songs.

This is the soundtrack from the DVD “David Gilmour in concert”, from the Royal Festival Hall in London, 22 June 2001.   Short and sweet… hope you enjoy!  Here’s the playlist.

As Cars Go By

Just like fixing a car, you run into a few snags and things sometimes take longer than planned.  Sorry for the delay on this, the latest installment of Brain Damage.  She’s fresh out of the shop and all tuned up. Go for a beat run and see how it feels.  Let me know what you think!  Here’s the playlist, but if you want to have a little fun guessing the songs from the lyrics, try this.

Same But Different

It would later become known as P.U.L.S.E. but before all that it was first aired here in the States as a Pay Per View event and later broadcast in the UK, on 15th of November 1994 on BBC1 and Radio One FM.  Lucky for us someone that night recorded it from their FM stereo receiver.

A big difference here is there’s no James Guthrie post production, so the sound isn’t as processed as the official video release of P.U.L.S.E. This has more of a raw, “feed from the desk” sound with the warmth of an FM broadcast.  So… Same but different.

Live and uncut from Earls Court, 20 October 1994.  Here’s the playlist.

Rock In Roma 2018

This one is right out of surgery. Post Op is already going very well! This recording needed some help, stat.  A complete medical briefing is presented in this latest podcast.

Countless hours were spent mending, tweaking  and removing clicks. Several auditory tests were run using studio, home, auto and personal audio devices to ensure the absolute best listening experience.

Out of Nowhere

Surprise!  I found some time in the last 48 hours and spent 25 of those hours putting this one together.  Just in time for Christmas!  This idea come from Brain Damaged listener, Andrew McClain who suggested a podcast of songs performed that are not part of a usual set list.  There are many ‘first time’ and ‘first time in a long time’ songs in this one!  Here’s the playlist! Enjoy!

Dark Side Of The Moon World Tour

Roger is almost set to wrap up his current South American Us + Them tour.  A few days ago while at Estadio Nacional, Santiago, Chile, he played The Gunners Dream, which is included in this podcast.  This edition of Brain Damage, we go back eleven years but stay at the same venue for Roger’s Dark Side of The Moon World Tour.  Here’s the playlist.  Please remember to donate and leave comments! Thank you and enjoy!

Animals

Here’s a podcast I’ve been kicking around for years.  I have no idea why it took me this long to get around to doing it but glad I did. If you want to know what Pink Floyd songs mention an animal, you’ve come to the right place.  This podcast consists of several species of mammals.  Its like a zoo!  Here’s a list of lyrics that mention an animal to figure out the songs!  Or you can check the playlist here!

Enjoy!  And if you do, please don’t forget to donate via Paypal.  I’m still a few hundred dollars shy from securing music licensing that’s due at the end of the year.  Thank you!

Nick In Copenhagen

For the first time since 1994, Nick is on tour.  He and his Saucerful of Secrets are currently on tour in Europe and have added some songs since their “pre-tour” dates in London.  This podcast features the bands 2nd night of the tour.  Live from the Forum Black Box in
Copenhagen, Denmark on the 3. September 2018.  Here’s the playlist.  Enjoy!

Chateau de Chantilly 94

I’ve been in the mood for something from the European Division Bell Tour.  Maybe I should of done this podcast last month.  It’s hard to think these concerts were almost 25 years ago.  For this podcast, we go to Chateau de Chantilly, Chantilly, France, 30. July 1994.  Here’s the playlist!

Reg At Radio City

Here’s a gig I’ve been meaning to feature for quite sometime.  This is a Westwood One radio broadcast of Roger’s 1985 Pros And Cons.  This is not the show/tour with Eric Clapton; but if you want to hear that, check out this episode.  The sound of this gig from Radio City Music Hall is really amazing.  Much better than most versions out there and I explain why in the podcast.  Here’s the playlist. Enjoy!

UPDATE!!

The broadcast (this podcast) features a live performance of the 2nd set + encore while the 1st set was prerecorded from the night before on March 27th.

Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets

Most of you have already seen or listened to some of Nick’s recent gigs but not all doctored up in a nice podcast like this.  If you haven’t heard any of it yet, you’re in for a real treat!  As I listen, I close my eyes and imagine this is the closest thing to what it must of been like to hear/see Pink Floyd in 1967.  Those of you who went, were incredibly fortunate. I wish I was there.  Here’s the playlist.  Enjoy!  Photo: Peter Chow
