PINK FLOYD Released Supreme Debut Album ‘THE PIPER AT THE GATES OF DAWN’ 55 Years Ago

Back in time

4 August 2022

This day 55 years ago, on 4 August 1967, art-rock icons PINK FLOYD launched
their debut LP, the stunning ‘THE PIPER AT THE GATES OF DAWN’.

An indefectible, influential psychedelic classic with most of the songs written by troubled genius Syd Barrett. A year later he was fired for his erratic and uncontrollable behavior due to too many drugs.

NME‘s review: ” ‘The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn’ has inspired plenty of people – Blur, The Coral, Klaxons, The Horrors, Devendra Banhart, pretty much every Home Counties art-school band ever – which makes it all the more ironic that one of the few bands that haven’t copied it is Pink Floyd themselves. It’s down to one man, of course: before he lost his mind, Pink Floyd’s main songwriter was Syd Barrett, a sensitive, good-looking middle-class art student from Cambridge. His songs on ‘The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn’ assemble a cast of cats, silver
shoes, unicorns, mice called Gerald, bikes, gnomes and the I Ching, and put them to some
of the most inventive and surprising psychedelic music ever recorded.”

Score: 9/10 – full review here

Waking Up… Rising Up

30 June 2022

Last March PINK FLOYD (Dave Gilmour and Nick Mason) released the band’s
first new original music in 25 years with opera-like anthem HEY HEY RISE UP.

A song written by David Gilmour (who has Ukrainian family) in support of charity fund Ukrainian Humanitarian Relief. The majestic composition features a monumental vocal performance by Andriy Khlyvnyuk of the popular Ukrainian band BoomBox.

Now the news came in that this special humdinger will be available as both a 7-inch vinyl and CD single on July 15 in the UK, Europe and other markets, while it will be released on August 3 in Japan. In North America, Canada, Australia and Mexico, it will arrive on October 21. Pre-order info here.

Poster This! Historic PINK FLOYD Concerts In London In 1994

PINK FLOYD started a 15-night run at Earls Court
in London on 12 Oct 1994.

Less than a minute after the band had started playing
Shine On You Crazy Diamond’, a scaffolding stand holding
1200 fans collapsed.

Ninety-six people were injured, with 36 needing hospital
treatment. The show was immediately canceled and
re-scheduled.
