History

Early years (1963–1967)

Formation

.Nick Mason and Roger Waters met at the Regent Street Polytechnic in London, where both were studying architecture.^ For those of you who have no idea who I’m talking about when I say Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Syd Barrett, Richard Wright, and Nick Mason, the wikipedia article has a nice picture identifying the members.

[1] .The pair first played together in a band formed by Keith Noble and Clive Metcalfe, along with Noble's sister Sheilagh, an occasional singer.^ Meddle in my opinion is the first post Syd album where the band really came together.

^ That production also helps: on a good pair of speakers or headphones, it sounds like every note the band is playing comes from inside your head.

They were joined later by fellow student Richard Wright. .With the addition of Wright the band became a sextet, and took the name Sigma 6.[2] Wright's girlfriend Juliette Gale was often a guest artist, and Waters initially played rhythm guitar before switching to bass.^ After he fired Rick Wright, Roger Waters took complete creative control of the band from The Wall up untill The Final Cut.

^ After Barret's departure, Waters took up defacto leadership of the band and became it's main songwriter.

^ Waters provided the band with lyrics that initially made floyd stand out from other bands during their time and our time.

Early gigs were for private functions, and the band rehearsed in a tearoom in the basement of Regent Street Polytechnic. .Sigma 6 played songs by The Searchers as well as material written by fellow student Ken Chapman, who became their manager and songwriter.^ See Emily Play, and the remainder of his songs more hint at an emerging songwriting talent than demonstrate a talent at its peak.

.In September 1963 Mason and Waters moved into the lower flat of Stanhope Gardens, owned by Mike Leonard, a part-time tutor at the Regent Street Polytechnic.^ I won't even go into the "skills" of Nick Mason or Roger Waters.

.Leonard was a designer of light machines (perforated discs spun by electric motors to cast patterns of lights on the walls),[nb 1] and for a time played keyboard with the band.^ He did play with the band on The Wall tour, but not as a full member of the band.

They used the front room of the flat for rehearsals.[3] Mason later moved out of the flat, and accomplished guitar player Bob Klose moved in. .The band's name was changed several times, from the Megadeaths, to the Architectural Abdabs, to the Tea Set.^ Other names they used included The Megadeaths and The Abdabs.

[3][4] Metcalfe and Noble left the band shortly thereafter in order to form their own band.[5]
.In a period when everyone was being cool in a very adolescent, self-concious way, Syd was unfashionably outgoing; my enduring memory of our first encounter is the fact that he bothered to come up and introduce himself to me.^ Maybe it's consolation for the fact that with Syd's self-destruction, the rest of the band members generally mill about aimlessly.

[6][8] .Waters and Barrett were childhood friends; the bassist had often visited Barrett as he played guitar at his mother's house.^ I especially like the way Dogs focuses on Gilmour's guitar wails, Pigs on Waters' funky bass lines, and Sheep on Wright's eerie keyboard playing.

[9] Barrett joined the Tea Set in 1964 and moved into Stanhope Gardens alongside Klose and Waters.[5]

As "The Pink Floyd Sound"

With the Tea Set lacking the vocals of Noble and Metcalfe, Klose introduced them to Chris Dennis, a technician with the Royal Air Force.[10] .During Dennis' tenure, the Tea Set acquired an alternative name—the Pink Floyd Sound.^ Love Pink Floyd, so just seeing a list with their name on it is enough for me.

[nb .2] Derived from the given names of two blues musicians that Barrett had in his record collection—Pink Anderson and Floyd Council,[11] Barrett created it on the spur of the moment, when he discovered that another band, also named the Tea Set, were to perform at one of their gigs.^ Pink Floyd to me is the greatest band ever.

Dennis was posted to Bahrain, thrusting Barrett into the spotlight as frontman.[10] .Minus Wright—who had taken a break from studying—the band first performed in a recording studio in December 1964. They had managed to secure recording time through Wright's friend at a studio in West Hampstead, who let them use some "down time" for free.^ They were the first band to use a quadraphonic sound system at their concerts.

.The four-song session became the Tea Set's first demo tape, and included the R&B classic "I'm A King Bee", and three Syd Barret originals, "Butterfly", "Lucy Leave", and "Double O Bo", which—according to Mason—was "Bo Diddley meets the 007 theme."^ I love this song but its much more a Syd Barret song I would say.

.According to Mason, this period "… was the beginning of a realisation that songs could be extended with lengthy solos."^ Meddle marks the beginning of the band's classic period, where they finally found their direction and started writing the songs that they would become famous for.

[14] The band auditioned for the ITV programme Ready Steady Go! (whose producers expressed enough interest to invite them back into the studio audience the following week), and also for another club, and two rock contests. Bob Klose left in 1965, at the behest of his father and college tutors,[15] and Barrett took over on lead guitar.[16]
.The Pink Floyd Sound began to receive paid bookings playing mostly rhythm and blues songs, including one performance at the Marquee Club in March 1966 where they were watched by Peter Jenner.^ Pink Floyd has so many varied songs.

^ The band had always experimented with strange sounds and song structures, but now they had the technical skill to make their ideas come alive.

^ Other names they used included The Megadeaths and The Abdabs.

[18] .Under their guidance, the band began performing on London's underground music scene at venues including All Saints Hall and The Marquee.^ The band reunited for a performance at Live 8 in 2005, and in 2007 the surviving members got together for a tribute to Syd Barrett - just not all at the same time.

^ It's strange to think that as the band became more meaningful they would cease the pure musical exploration they'd done at the beginning of their career.

[18] By October 1966 their set included more of their own material,[22] and they were performing at venues such as the Commonwealth Institute.[25] Their music was not to everyone's taste, however; following a performance at a Catholic youth club, the owner refused to pay. .At the magistrates' court the judge agreed with the owner, who claimed that the band's performance "wasn't music".[26] Although this was not the only occasion on which they encountered such opinions, they were better received at the UFO Club in London.^ They are considered to be a British progressive rock band, gaining early recognition for their psychedelic or space rock music.

^ The band wouldn't stop making great music, of course (they had only just begun!

[27] Barrett's performances were reportedly exuberant, "… leaping around and the madness, and the kind of improvisation he was doing … he was inspired. He would constantly manage to get past his limitations and into areas that were very, very interesting. Which none of the others could do."[28] The often drug-addled audience was receptive to the music they played, but the band remained conspicuously drug-free —"We were out of it, not on acid, but out of the loop, stuck in the dressing room at UFO."[29]

Signing with EMI

.Although in 1967 Mason admitted that the psychedelic movement had "taken place around us—not within us",[30] the Pink Floyd Sound were present at the head of a wave of interest in psychedelic music, so attracted attention from record companies.^ Pink Floyd ended with this record.

The band mimed the single on the BBC's Top Of The Pops, and returned for another performance after the single climbed to number five; however, a scheduled third appearance was cancelled when Barrett refused to perform.[40] At about this time the other band members began to notice changes in Barrett's behaviour[43]—by early 1967 he was regularly using lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), a psychedelic drug[44]—and at an earlier show in Holland Mason observed him to be "completely distanced from everything going on, whether simply tripping or suffering from a more organic neural disturbance I still have no idea."[43]

[46] Although in his 2005 autobiography Mason recalled the sessions as relatively trouble-free, Smith disagreed, and claimed that Barrett was unresponsive to his suggestions and constructive criticism. .They experimented with musique concrète, and were at one point invited to watch The Beatles record "Lovely Rita".[47] The Piper at the Gates of Dawn was released in August 1967.

In a demonstration of his frustration at being effectively sidelined, Barrett tried to teach the band a new song, "Have You Got It Yet?", but changed the structure on each performance—making it impossible for them to learn. Matters came to a head on the way to a performance in Southampton. When somebody in the van asked if they should collect Barrett, the response was "No, fuck it, let's not bother".[60]
.Waters later admitted "He was our friend, but most of the time we now wanted to strangle him".[62] For a while Barrett still turned up to the occasional gig, apparently confused as to what was happening.^ Waters provided the band with lyrics that initially made floyd stand out from other bands during their time and our time.

.Neither Waters nor Mason could read music, and to create the album's title track "A Saucerful of Secrets" they invented their own system of notation—something which Gilmour later would comment looked "… like an architectural diagram".[68] A Saucerful of Secrets was released in June 1968 to mixed reviews; Record Mirror wrote positively, urging listeners to "forget it as background music to a party",[68] and John Peel claimed that the album was "… like a religious experience …".[68] However, NME viewed the title track as "… long and boring, and has little to warrant its monotonous direction".[68] The album cover was designed by Storm Thorgerson and Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis.^ However I what really is outstanding is the album cover.

Gilmour is generally dismissive of Atom Heart Mother and once described it as "a load of rubbish",[79] although in 2001 he said it "was a good thing to have attempted, but I don't really think the attempt comes off that well".[80] He performed the title track with Ron Geesin, in 2008. Waters was also critical of parts of the album, once even claiming he wouldn't mind if it were "thrown into the dustbin and never listened to by anyone ever again."[79] Norman Smith was given only an executive producer credit, his final contribution to the band's discography.[81] Atom Heart Mother was massively successful in the UK,[82] and was premièred at the Bath Festival on 27 June 1970.[83]

However, the theft in New Orleans of equipment worth about $40,000 almost crippled the band's finances. The local police were unhelpful, but within hours of notifying the FBI the equipment was returned. Mason and Wright were now fathers and bought homes in London. Gilmour, not married, moved to a 19th-century farm in Essex. Waters installed a home recording studio at his house in Islington, in a converted tool-shed at the bottom of his garden.[84]

[110] He is therefore credited as the author of the album's lyrics.[111] Generally, the press were enthusiastic; Melody Maker's Roy Hollingworth described side one as: "… so utterly confused with itself it was difficult to follow", but went on to praise side two, writing "The songs, the sounds, the rhythms were solid and sound, Saxophone hit the air, the band rocked and rolled, and then gushed and tripped away into the night."[112] In his 1973 album review for Rolling Stone magazine, Lloyd Grossman wrote: "a fine album with a textural and conceptual richness that not only invites, but demands involvement".[113]

.Richard Wright later described these early sessions as "falling within a difficult period", and Waters found them "torturous".[122] Gilmour was more interested in improving the band's existing material, and Mason's marriage was failing, bringing on in him a general malaise and sense of apathy, which interfered with his drumming.^ Bring on the David Gilmour Orchestra version of Floydit may be soulless, but at least it's *trying* to be interesting!

After several weeks, however, Waters began to visualise another concept.[122] .During 1974, they had sketched out three new compositions,[124] and had performed them at a series of concerts in Europe.^ When it explodes around the three minute mark, Pink Floyd suddenly sound more aggressive and all-out ROCK than they ever had before.

[126] The songs also contained barely-veiled attacks on the music business, and provided an apt summary of the rise and fall of their former bandmate;[127] "Because I wanted to get as close as possible to what I felt ... that sort of indefinable, inevitable melancholy about the disappearance of Syd."[126] "Raving and Drooling" and "Gotta Be Crazy" had no place in the new concept, and were set aside.[128]

Syd Barrett, visiting Abbey Road Studios on 5 June 1975
While the band were working on the album, Barrett made an impromptu visit to the studio,[125][129][130] during which, Thorgerson recalled, he "sat round and talked for a bit but he wasn't really there."[131] He had changed in appearance, and the band did not initially realise it was him. Waters was reportedly deeply upset by the experience. Barrett eventually left without saying goodbye, and none of the band members ever saw him again.[132]
Storm Thorgerson concealed the album artwork with a dark-coloured shrink-wrap. .Inside, the cover image was inspired by the idea that people tend to conceal their true feelings, for fear of "getting burned", and thus two businessmen were pictured shaking hands, one man on fire.^ Side two of this album is so slow, featureless and dreary that you can literally feel yourself getting older as you listen to it.

Animals

Following the Knebworth concert, the band bought a three-storey block of church halls at 35 Britannia Row in Islington. .Their deal with EMI for unlimited studio time in return for a reduced percentage of sales had expired, and they set about converting the building into a recording studio, and storage facility.^ In 1966, after building up a reputation in England, they signed to a record deal with EMI and went into the studio to record The Piper at the Gates of Dawn (at the same time as The Beatles were using it to record Sgt.

The band commissioned a 30 feet (9.1 m) porcine balloon (known as Algie), and photography began on 2 December, with a trained marksman ready to fire if the balloon escaped. Unfortunately inclement weather delayed shooting, and O'Rourke had neglected to book the marksman for a second day. Algie broke free of its moorings and ascended into the sky, eventually landing in Kent where it was recovered by a local farmer, reportedly furious that it had "apparently scared his cows."[144] Shooting continued for a third day, but the image of the pig was later superimposed onto the cover photograph as the early photographs of the power station were considered to be better.[144][145]
The division of royalties became a sore topic, during production of the album. .Royalties were accorded on a per-song basis, and although Gilmour was largely responsible for "Dogs"—which took up almost the entire first side of the album—he received less than Waters, who also contributed the two-part "Pigs on the Wing", which contains references to Waters' romantic involvement with Carolyne Anne Christie.^ The Wall (written almost entirely by Waters) told a (disturbingly autobiographical) story of a rock star named Pink who begins to fall into the depths of insanity.

Similarly, neither Mason nor Wright contributed much toward Animals (the first Pink Floyd album not to contain a writing credit for Wright); Wright had marital problems, and his relationship with Waters was also suffering:[147]
Animals was a slog. It wasn't a fun record to make, but this was when Roger really started to believe that he was the sole writer for the band. He believed that it was only because of him that the band was still going, and obviously, when he started to develop his ego trips, the person he would have his conflicts with would be me.
—Richard Wright, [148]
The Soldier Field stadium in Chicago. The band played here during their 1977 In the Flesh tour.
.Animals was released on 23 January 1977,[144] and entered the UK charts at number two, and number three in the US.[149] NME called the album "… one of the most extreme, relentless, harrowing and downright iconoclastic hunks of music to have been made available this side of the sun …",[149] and Melody Maker's Karl Dallas wrote "… [an] uncomfortable taste of reality in a medium that has become in recent years, increasingly soporific …"[149] The album became the subject material for the band's In the Flesh tour, during which early signs of discord became apparent.^ One of the most overrated bands in history.

Waters began arriving at each venue alone, and departing immediately after the performance was complete, and Gilmour's wife Ginger did not get along with Waters' new girlfriend. On one occasion, Wright flew back to England threatening to leave the band. .The size of the venues was also an issue,[150] and the end of the tour was a low point for Gilmour, who felt that the band had by now achieved the success they sought, and that there was nothing else to look forward to.^ The music is courtesy of a Salvation Army band who were invited into the studio by Syd and told to play whatever they felt like.

In 1976, the band had become involved with financial advisers Norton Warburg Group (NWG). .NWG became the band's collecting agents and handled all financial planning, for an annual fee of about £300,000. Between £1.6M and £3.3M of the band's money was invested in high-risk venture capital schemes, primarily to reduce the band's exposure to high UK taxes.^ Not a Pink Floyd fan (cant get into any band doing the high-concept, music as art-form thing), but wondering where that song “Money” is at?

  • Top 10 Pink Floyd Songs - Listverse 28 January 2010 1:39 UTC listverse.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

They eventually terminated their relationship with NWG, demanding the return of any cash not yet invested, which at that time amounted to £860,000 (they received £740,000).[153][nb 6]
In the midst of this, in July 1977, Waters presented the band with two new ideas. .The first was a ninety-minute demo given the provisional title Bricks in the Wall, and the other what would later become his first solo album, The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking.^ I would have most certainly included “Money” and “Another Brick in the Wall” as well as “Great Gig in the Sky” “Time” and others.

Although both Mason and Gilmour were initially cautious, the former (inspired by the recent spitting incident) was chosen to be their next album.[154] Bob Ezrin was brought in as co-producer, and he wrote a forty-page script for the new album.[155] .The story was based on the central character of Pink—a character inspired by Waters' childhood experiences—the most notable of which was the death of his father in World War II. This first 'brick in the wall' led to more problems, and Pink would become so drug-addled and worn down by the music industry that he would transform into a megalomaniac, a development inspired partly by the decline of Syd Barrett.^ Pink Floyd will always be remembered for being one of the most influential bands of all time and of course for their musical contribution of Dark Side of the Moon, but the true beauty of their music is found in their less popular albums such as "The Final Cut", a story album that is almost a sequel to the bands second biggest album "The Wall", discuses the untimely death of Roger Waters father in a trench in Anzio during WWII. Opnions on corrupt govenment are found in almost every album, but have to be unearthed from the storys they tell.

To record The Wall, engineer Brian Humphries, emotionally drained by his five years with the band, was replaced by James Guthrie.[158] .In March 1979, however, the band's critical financial situation demanded that they leave the UK for a year or more, and recording was moved to the Super Bear Studios near Nice.^ If the record label of an imaginary Nineties Pink Floyd hadn't dropped them after 'More', they certainly would have done so now.

Their four Winnebagos were parked in a circle, with the doors facing away from the centre. Waters used his own vehicle to arrive at the venue, and stayed in separate hotels from the rest of the band. Wright returned as a paid musician, and was the only 'member' of the band to profit from the venture, which lost about $600,000.[167]
The album also spawned a film. The original plan was for the film to be a mixture of live concert footage and animated scenes. However, the concert footage proved impractical to film. Alan Parker agreed to direct, and took a different approach. The animated sequences would remain, but scenes would be acted by professional actors, with no dialogue. Waters was screen tested but quickly discarded, and Bob Geldof was asked to take the role of Pink. Geldof was initially disdainful, condemning The Wall's storyline as "bollocks".[180] He was eventually won over by the prospect of being involved in a major film and receiving a large payment for his work. Waters took a six-week holiday during filming and returned to find that Parker had used his creative licence to change parts of the film to his liking. Waters was irate, the two fought, and Parker threatened to walk out. .Gilmour pleaded with Waters to reconsider his stance, reminding the bassist that he and the other band members were shareholders and directors and could out-vote him on such decisions.^ Gilmour was just testing the water with this and it turned out pretty well, i have to say that 'sorrow' is absolutely magnificent, great lyrics, great guitar, great solo, great track.

Another songwriter credited on the album was Gilmour's new girlfriend, Polly Samson. She helped write "High Hopes" with Gilmour—along with several other tracks—a situation which, though initially tense, according to Ezrin "pulled the whole album together".[219] She also helped Gilmour, who, following his divorce, had developed a cocaine habit.[220] Michael Kamen was brought in work on the album's various string arrangements,[217] and Dick Parry and Chris Thomas also returned.[221]

[230] The reunion had been arranged by Live 8 organiser Bob Geldof who had called Mason earlier in the year to discuss the band reuniting for Live 8. Geldof had already asked Gilmour, who had turned down the offer, and asked Mason to intercede on his behalf. Mason declined, but contacted Waters, who was immediately enthusiastic. Waters then called Geldof to discuss the event, which was at that time only a month away. .About two weeks later, Waters called Gilmour—their first conversation for about two years—and the next day the latter agreed.^ It's been ten years since I first heard it and it has lost none of its novelty and charm, and there's only a handful of albums I can say that about.

Wright was contacted, and immediately agreed. Statements were issued to the press which stressed the lack of import of the band's problems, compared to the context of the Live 8 event. The setlist was planned at the Connaught Hotel in London, followed by three days of rehearsals at Black Island Studios. The sessions were troublesome, with minor disagreements over the style and pace of the songs they were practising. .Waters wanted to use the occasion to expand the concepts he had designed, whereas Gilmour wanted to perform the songs in exactly the way the audience would expect.^ The three songs inbetween the two 'Shine On You Crazy Diamond' tracks were all Roger Waters songs, whereas in the past, you'd have got one Waters, one Gilmour and one Wright.

.The veracity of the user was demonstrated when white lights in front of the stage at the Pink Floyd concert in East Rutherford spelled out the words Enigma Publius.^ Concert attendances blossomed, the same cosy couples were broken from their usual respectful silence during Pink Floyd concerts and enticed to yell out a request for the catchy 'Money' in the middle of the set instead.

^ That's wby everytime you see a Pink Floyd concert at least after 1983, you don't see Roger Waters appear with his amazing vocals.

^ No messing around, Pink Floyd seem to suddenly have an impetus and a purpose, however and whichever way they found themselves at this stage.

During a televised concert at Earls Court in October 1994, the word enigma was projected in large letters on to the backdrop of the stage. Mason later acknowledged that the Publius Enigma did exist, and that it had been instigated by the record company rather than the band. As of 2010 the puzzle remains unsolved.[225]

Notes

  1. ^ These would be demonstrated in an early edition of Tomorrow's World
  2. ^ The sources used in this article suggest different dates for the first billing of this name, and therefore this article is purposely ambiguous.
  3. ^ Child was employed by Peter Jenner as a secretary and general production assistant.[48]
  4. ^ Storm Thorgerson attended the same school, about the same time as Waters and Barrett.[69]
  5. ^ Carolyne Anne Christie was married to Rock Scully, manager of the Grateful Dead. Waters' marriage to Judy had produced no children, but he became a father with Carolyne in November 1976.[146]
  6. ^ Pink Floyd eventually sued NWG for £1M, accusing them of fraud and negligence. NWG collapsed in 1981. Andrew Warburg fled to Spain, Norton Warburg Investments (a part of NWG) was renamed to Waterbrook, and many of its holdings were sold at a huge loss. Andrew Warburg was jailed for three years upon his return to the UK in 1987.[153]
  7. ^ Wright's name appears only on the credit list.
  8. ^ Mason (2005) goes some way toward backing this statement up, by stating that "rumour had it we would not be allowed in"[210]
  9. ^ Mason (2005) also writes that they had enough left-over material to create a separate release.[216]
