Nick Mason, Aubrey Powell interview on BBC Radio tomorrow night

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 15:42:55 +0100

Johnnie Walker's Long Players ( begins tomorrow night on the UK's BBC Radio 2, at 11pm BST. It's a special episode too - tying in with Radio 2's 50th birthday, they feature a key album and the singles that surrounded it in 1967. The subject of this 57 minute show is The Piper At The Gates of Dawn; the band's innovative, exciting and acclaimed debut, the start of a road which took the Floyd to sales of more than 200 million (and still counting today) across the world. Johnnie is joined by former architecture student and founding drummer with the band, Nick Mason, and his friend Aubrey 'Po' Powell, who grew up in Cambridge with David Gilmour and the late Syd Barrett. Po co-founded Hipgnosis (who designed most of the Floyd's album sleeves and photography) and is curator of 'Their Mortal Remains', which chronicles Pink Floyd's entire history at London's V A Museum (which has just four weeks left before it closes). BBC Radio 2 can be heard in the UK on FM and DAB radio, digital cable, satellite and Freeview, and in selected countries across Europe. It can also be heard via the BBC website live or by using the iPlayer service on demand. Our thanks to all of you who dropped us a line about this upcoming show.(image)

Roger Waters guests at Michael Moore Broadway production

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 13:24:46 +0100

Documentary film maker Michael Moore is currently doing a run of shows on Broadway in New York. The Terms Of My Surrender is playing at the historic Belasco Theatre, and each show has a different guest, interviewed toward the end of the performance. Last Sunday, September 10th, Roger Waters took the opportunity whilst in town for his shows at Brooklyn's Barclays Center to participate in the show (a matinee). Waters spoke for a good twenty minutes or so (an excerpt is shown below) talking about a number of subjects, particularly Trump and the legislative changes he is attempting to effect, much to the shock of the audience. He also informed a shocked Moore about how his father was killed during the war, at Anzio. Outside the theatre were a few protesters, and a couple were present in the auditorium; amidst the cheering for Waters were a couple of dissenting boos, which Waters met with his reasoning that he wanted people of all races, religions, political persuasions and such like to have basic human rights, and if you are booing that, you are booing this concept. This seemed to mollify the protesters, who didn't seem that committed to their cause anyway. Toward the end of the show, things took a slight bizarre turn, with Moore Dancing With The Starz - dancing with a female dancer, then calling Waters back on the stage to join in, as a couple of Chippendale style male dancers quickly got down to the briefest of briefs! Waters clearly seemed amused but definitely ill at ease at the situation, managing a small bit of dad dancing as they conga'd off the stage. The picture to the right (courtesy of Marie Lopez-Reyes) shows Waters and Moore grooving to the music...(image)

'Live At Pompeii': David Gilmour creates another masterpiece

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 13:27:17 +0100

More information here ( 'Live At Pompeii' is a concert film of David Gilmour's 2015-16 'Rattle That Lock' tour. The Blu-ray will be released on September 28, but it premiered on September 13 in cinemas around the globe and everyone was invited. It was shot in the Amphitheatre of Pompeii, the site of the film 'Pink Floyd Live At Pompeii' shot back in 1971. Over 40 years later, Gilmour returned for two sold out performances on July 7 and 8, 2016. I was looking forward to seeing the cinema presentation of David Gilmour's 'Live At Pompeii' with both a warm space cadet glow and a little trepidation. I was fortunate enough to see this tour live in 2016 at the Hollywood Bowl, the type of unique venue where Gilmour really likes to perform. I still bask in the afterglow of that night. It was an outstanding performance combined with the magic of a classic and timeless venue. How could a carefully edited film screened at about 30 dB quieter than the live show hold up to the actual performance? The answer is very well. The film is its own experience. We were in a packed theater with a room full of other fans who get it, making the evening a moving shared experience. Really… see it in a cinema. Directed by Gavin Elder, the film opens with an impressive, sweeping aerial shot of the Amphitheatre at Pompeii -- Mount Vesuvius looming in the background -- and then wastes no time diving in to the music...(image)

Roger Waters' Us + Them Tour returns to New Jersey, one musician change

Fri, 08 Sep 2017 17:15:10 +0100

See the full interview here ( There is one personnel change though it seems to be temporary: keyboardist Bo Koster, of My Morning Jacket, has replaced Drew Erickson, apparently due to an injury afflicting Erickson. Waters has recently added dates in Australia and New Zealand: the window to see the tour in the US is closing. The Us + Them tour is an incredibly immersive experience and one worth taking in from more than one angle: fans on the floor, near the stage, will experience a very different performance than the one someone sitting in the highest parts of the stands will: both are mind-blowing… but for very different reasons. Roger Waters' Us + Them tour moves to Buffalo on September 9th and returns to New York City September 11th through the 16th.(image)

David Gilmour Live at Pompeii - one week to go

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 11:50:24 +0100

With just one week to go, tickets are selling extremely well for the eagerly awaited concert recording of David Gilmour Live at Pompeii (, filmed in 4k by director Gavin Elder and presented in Dolby Atmos sound. The film, being shown in cinemas worldwide on September 13th, is a recording of the pair of spectacular concerts held at the ancient Roman amphitheatre on July 7th and 8th last year. Having seen the film last night, at a special preview screening in London's Soho district, we wholeheartedly recommend you do your best to see this in a cinema near you, if at all possible. Cinema audiences will get a special treat: a bonus documentary, which is only being shown with the film. This is a relatively short but interesting insight into the brace of concerts. This appears before the main feature. The film itself is quite remarkable. An edit of the setlist for the two shows, there are highlights after highlights - those of us who were there will recall just how good the performances were each night, and that translates perfectly onto the screen. The camera work is spot on (with the 4k filming giving great detail and colour palettes) and the audio truly stunning. If you are able to see the film in a cinema equipped with Dolby Atmos, do so - the experience is quite something, with the power, the clarity, and the sense of almost being there in the amphitheatre. Particular highlights for me from the film inevitably included In Any Tongue, A Boat Lies Waiting, a superb Comfortably Numb, and Run Like Hell - in Pompeii, it was truly turned up to 11 ! For details of cinemas taking part in this very special one night only event and ticket information visit ( As a reminder, here's the trailer for the film, which was unveiled in July... Finally, September 29th sees the arrival of the recordings on 2CD, Blu-ray, 2DVD, a 4LP boxset, a Blu-ray and CD deluxe edition boxset, and via HD digital downloads. Other gems too are present on the deluxe boxset, including the acclaimed BBC documentary Wider Horizons.

Roger Waters - a very happy birthday!

Wed, 06 Sep 2017 13:23:50 +0100

The combined wishes of all of us on the Brain Damage team, along no doubt with many of you reading this, go to Roger Waters, who celebrates his 74th birthday today. Roger was born in Great Bookham, Surrey, in 1943, moving to Cambridge when he was two years old. It was there that he met, and became childhood friends with, a number of key people in the story of Pink Floyd. We hope you have a great day, Roger. Many happy returns! Of course, Roger has been extremely busy over the last few years, having successfully taken Dark Side Of The Moon on tour in 2006, through to 2008. On completing that, he immediately started work on a new version of The Wall - which finally opened in September 2010. That tour was spectacularly successful, wrapping up in Paris for show number 217 in September 2013. Recordings of that tour turned into the film, shown in cinemas and released on DVD/Blu-ray and as part of a mammoth, Super Deluxe Edition. More recently, he kicked off his Us + Them world tour, which so far has been performed a number of times in North America - Newark, NJ, is tomorrow night, as the tour resumes after a short summer break - and dates have now been announced for a number of shows in Australia and New Zealand. He's also released his latest solo album, Is This The Life We Really Want? as well as overseeing the release of the late Nick Sedgwick's book about the band, and in particular, the 1974 tour of The Dark Side of the Moon...(image)

"Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains" (exhibition official catalogue) book review

Fri, 04 Aug 2017 15:44:06 +0100

Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains By Aubrey Po Powell, Mark Blake, Joe Boyd, Victoria Broackes, Anna Landreth Strong, Howard Goodall, Jon Savage, Rob Young - Published May 13th 2017 as the English language edition, July 6th 2017 the German edition, and October 19th 2017 for the French edition A big, beautiful well-illustrated book that leaves you wanting more... I'm in Dallas with virtually no chance of seeing the exhibition “Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains” live in London before it closes this October. My hope was that Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains the book of the exhibition (V A Publishing, 2017) would act as sort of a surrogate to help give me an idea, a sense of the history displayed in this outstanding and once-in-a-lifetime retrospective of the 50 years of Pink Floyd. The book Their Mortal Remains is written and designed to be the official catalogue of the exhibit and less of a standalone history of Pink Floyd. A good exhibit catalogue should not only contain lots of photographs that act as a memento for the exhibit, it should also contain additional materials that help you explore the subject of the exhibit in greater depth. For the most part, this book does both well. The book itself is big and gorgeous -- beautifully designed and printed. At just over 300 pages, most of them photographs, there's plenty here for all types of Pink Floyd fans to ogle over, especially for those unable to see the exhibition in person. There are two editions. Both covers show the iconic refracting prism from Pink Floyd’s classic Dark Side of the Moon album cover. The hardcover edition also has a really spiffy lenticular cover where the prism shatters as you open the book. It’s a pretty cool effect and worth considering the upgrade from the soft-cover edition.(image)
