This Earthly Heaven

The idea for this edition of Brain Damage was inspired by David Gilmour’s decision to donate 21+ million dollars raised from selling his guitar collection to ClientEarth.  So I figure an Earth themed podcast would be cool.  Most of the tracks featured have something to do with Mother Earth or the environment.  Hope you enjoy.  Here’s the playlist!

As always, let me know what you think below or at my twitter or Facebook fan pages!  Consider a small donation?  Thank you!

David Gilmour’s Guitar Collection

I got myself a copy of “The David Gilmour Guitar Collection” catalogue/catalog (take your pick) and while/whilst (circle one) flipping through, the idea hit me.  A companion podcast! If you have a copy, you’ll enjoy listening as you read about the guitar your listening to. If you don’t have it, it’s still a great listen. Here’s the playlist!  Enjoy!

I’d love to know what you think!  Please leave a reply below and/or (there’s that select-a-word thing again) my twitter or Facebook fan page!  Consider a small donation?  Thank you!

UPDATE: You don’t need a hard copy of the catalogue. Christie’s has an interactive e-catalogue or you can download it here.

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.

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!

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!

Deja Vu 2

Here’s another short podcast but you’ll want to play this one on repeat over and over.  It’s that good!  Some of it may seem familiar but its all different in some way or another.  Hope you enjoy!  Here’s the playlist!.

War Games

It’s more fun if you go straight to the podcast and listen.  See if you can put it together without reading this description.  If you want it all explained, then keep reading.  This podcast was a difficult one to put together.  I could of gone in so many different directions with songs that mentioned guns, knives and bombs.  Instead it became militaristic with “a hint” of war in the air.  It was after all a huge part of Pink Floyd’s music, given the effects it had on Roger and growing up in post WWII UK.  Sit in your bunker and enjoy!  Here’s the playlist.

Sunrise

Good morning!  I can’t believe it took me this long to come up with this idea.  It’s much like the popular “Sundown” podcast from a while back, except this one’s for morning people.  Enjoy it as you get ready for work or on your commute in.  Let me know what you think!  Here’s the playlist.

Cold Connection

It occurred to me that I’ve never done a theme like this.  The title should give it away but its still fun to find the connection burred in each song.  This episode is on the shorter side but I hope you’ll still find it as riveting as all the others.  It’s podcasts like this I hate posting playlists because it spoils the fun, but here it is.  Anyway, don’t be shy, please leave a comment and tell your Pink Floyd friends about floydpodcast.com.

Shine On You Crazy Sax

Here’s a podcast I’ve been wanting to do for a long time.  Floyd songs and solo efforts that feature the saxophone!  I explain why I decided to do this now in the podcast.  So if you’re a fan of the sax, then this is for you!  Enjoy and if you do, please don’t forget to donate.  Thank you!  Here’s the playlist.

FIX/ATION

This podcast is a “review” of The Early Years box set.  The set is awesome but…  In this podcast, I go over what could of been better, a lucky mistake and perhaps some blatant omissions.  I offer some better sounding examples of tracks and well, fixate on the whole thing.  Here’s the playlist

Poles Apart

gilmour-waters-comfortably-numb-reunion-735x413Lots going on in the Pink Floyd world and there’s no sign of it slowing down anytime soon. In this, Roger discusses his new tour and album. This podcast is a lot like an older podcast from last year called “Ravingandrooling“.   You’ll know what I mean.  This is a long podcast… Enjoy!   playlist
