Just been out in the garden, feet up enjoying the most beautiful weather, listening to Pink Floyd’s Atom Heart Mother.
Straight back to 3rd year at Slough Grammar, and a great group of friends. Strange how some music does that to you.
Life seemed a lot simpler then
A lot of people don’t like that album (I do) including Dave Gilmour. Meddle is good too, saw them do Echoes at Knebworth 1975
We saw a concert by the tribute band Back to the Floyd a couple of weeks ago in Le Mans, the show was very slickly presented and the music and musicians were excellent, a very enjoyable night ,10/10
Much prefer Meddle to AHM personally.
I think all the music I play or hear takes me back to some memory, good or bad. In fact, I associate just about all my past in terms of music of the time.
I was there . Drove from Cap d’Agde on a Thursday night (Sunbeam Rapier fastback) arrived at knebworth very early Saturday morning, first in the car park- last out…
Girls’ School on one side of the city… Boys’ School on the other side.
The powers that be… decided to allow everyone to meet… once a week in the gymnasium at the Boys’ School… for a sort of Youth Club (under supervision of course… aargh)
I heard this song for the first time… at that first YC meeting… as a very shy girl, standing with her equally shy friends, while we watched the older girls parading and flirting with "the Boys… "
Hearing it, no matter how many years in between… and I am transported straight back there, to that other lifetime…
Best Floyd tribute act i have seen was the Australian Pink Floyd.
i have always loved Floyd. All the way from Piper at the Gates of Dawn, through Meddle, Echos,Dark Side of the Moon to Wish You Were Here.
A really interesting progression of music.
Say no more.
We had the same situation, Slough Grammar School and St Bernard’s Convent
