Moscow

Pink-Floyd.-Moscow-1989Here it is, the next installment of Brain Damage from Moscow during Pink Floyd’s “Another Lapse Tour”  This is a podcast I’ve had on the back-burner for a few years.  The quality is not up to my standards but this is a rare recording of a historical show for the band.  I’ve tried to “clean” it up and doctor it the best I could. Here’s the playlist!

Я надеюсь, вам понравится!

Beyond Our Control

Show #131 Release date: 27. April, 2009

Apologies for the delay on this.  The production process was plagued with technical difficulties.  Plus there was massive amounts of tweaking I had to do several times after not being satisfied with each end result.  It’s not the worst but its not the best but it is an interesting gig.  I also had problems with the upload.  Maybe Floyd’s luck, or rather lack of with technical issues was contagious.

For this podcast we go to an often forgotten land.  It was Floyd’s first and last visit to this country in the Fennoscandian region of northern Europe.  Suurhalli, Lahti, Finland, 10. June 1989.  Enjoy!

For What It’s Worth

Show #94 – Release date: 14. September, 2007

Pink Floyd headlined the Knebworth Festival by offering their services in aid of the Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy Centre as well as the BRIT school of performing arts and technology who provide music therapy for handicapped children.

120,000 fans gathered for this historic event featuring a combination of legendary British rock artists.  Floyd’s long awaited set featured special guests Clair Torry and Candy Dalfer and Rain… but first, a treat from David Gilmour’s recent cinematic DVD premier and Q&A session last week.

No Drop of Waters

Show #88 Release date: 6. July, 2007

The last podcast stirred up a great thread.  I planned to feature the first Waterless Floyd gig but decided to do an experiment instead.  I have for you, Floyd’s last two albums.  Performed live (except Cluster One) all recorded off the soundboard, all arranged in the same order as each album.  This podcast was lots of fun to put together.  Hope you dig it.

Venezia

Show #75 Release date: 5. January, 2007

This podcast takes care of those who often requested to hear Pink Floyd’s free concert staged on a huge barge, moored off the Piazza San Marco, Venice, Italy in front of an estimated crowd of 200,000 people.  The concert was broadcast to over twenty countries and was seen by over 100 million people.

This concert was perhaps one of the more controversial ones for Pink Floyd.  The concert was almost canceled for fear that the vibrations of sound from such an event would damage some of the buildings.  Despite Floyd performing at a lower volume, there was still claims of damage to some buildings and many lamp posts were destroyed from fans climbing on them to get a better look.  Even worse, the city failed to provide the necessary amenities for the fans.  This lead to 300 tons of trash, and human waste being left behind which the Italian Army had to clean up.  The Venice City Council later apologized to the residents and vowed that no similar concert would be allowed again.

The first few songs are included to give you enough time to chill and roll a few good spliffs before we dive into the concert portion.
