Anyone else know anything about this???? Wasn't there a very well regarded Pink Floyd cover band from Australia? I seem to remember they got invited to play at a party given by one of the real members of Floyd.
I'm thinking this might be them. Last edited: Jul 3, Location: New Zealand. Alternative4Jul 3, I listened to the original recording on youtube and I think I found the CD. Not sure if this was put together or just a strange accident - but easiest way to find it. Location: Edmonton, AB. Is there a link where a guy could listen to the whole thing?
Crazyhorse11Jul 3, I watched the whole Jim Henson produced play of "The Cube" this morning without the Floyd music playing on top of it. Very freaky production. Yes, same guy who did the Muppets. Very free form concept - about a guy stuck in a cube It's been reported that NBC ran these shows or at least this one without advertisements. I can see how it needed that to allow the concept to work. I'd love to see more of these - not sure many any? This seems to have been given a new life on youtube because of the Henson connection he wrote it.
I swear some of the actors are people I used to see on Sesame Street. Not the principals - per se - but some of the smaller roles. Warning: watching "The Cube" will force you to wonder "Why? Very trippy concept.
I suspect Roger Waters watched it on television when it was originally created. Hi fellow Floyd fans I am the creator of this mix you are talking about, Dark Side of a Dream I started it as a personal project in the summer of just to experiment with different ideas I had concerning digital mixing I was a DJ a few decades before and I always had a love for the Floyd so I decided to try a mix using the Floyd music and style It was originally released around on some file sharing sites that were popular at the time and released on bit torrent a few years later.
Its kinda cool having people still listening to this mix some 10 years on, as it was a brief moment in my life that needed to be filled by a burst of creativity. During the 5 years after release, it got about 1, downloads on torrent sites. I never expected that but I did produce a second mix 'Passage' shortly thereafter.
Personally, I dont think it was quite as good and I didn't put much effort into it, but it did have limited success. The description above by 'toptentwist' is fairly accurate, and I dont recall all of the source material. But 14 and 15 are from a 'Signal Hill melody'. Some of the cuts were from less known bootleg releases with a bit of 'eq' to compensate for the poor quality of the track; some live, less known cuts from other official releases; and some cuts from 'a tree full of secrets'.
Most everything else was The Post War Dream - Pink Floyd - MP3 Stereo (CD) studio discs and the whole thing was done with Sony Acid Pro and a few other programs, The Post War Dream - Pink Floyd - MP3 Stereo (CD).
I never thought this would be popular and I never wanted any money or recognition. It was just something I needed to do to find myself, and thankfully, it worked. Ray Kolling. Location: Maastricht, Netherlands. Good job Ray, thanks!! Location: Detroit, Michigan. Thanks for the explanation. ShawnXAug 29, Can you provide a link for the file? Very interested in hearing it.
In "One of the Few", another rejected song, the schoolteacher from The Wall features as the main character, presented as a war hero returned to civilian life. He is unable to relate his experiences to his wife, and in "The Hero's Return" is tormented by the loss of one of his aircrew.
It is followed in "Paranoid Eyes" by the teacher's descent into alcoholism. The second half deals with various war issues. While "Southampton Dock" is a lament to returning war heroes and other soldiers heading out to a likely death,  " Not Now John " addresses society's ignorance of political and economic problems.
The album ends with " Two Suns in the Sunset ", which portrays a nuclear holocaust : the final result of a world obsessed with war and control. American composer Michael Kamenwho had contributed to The Wallco-produced, oversaw the orchestral arrangements, and mediated between Waters and Gilmour. He also stood in for keyboardist Richard Wrightwho had left the band under pressure from Waters during the recording of The Wall.
Mason also suggested the repeated reprises of "Maggie, what have we done" be rendered instrumental rather than sung. Recording took place in the latter half of across eight studios, including Gilmour's home studio at Hookend Manorand Waters' Billiard Room Studios at East Sheen. Tensions soon emerged, and while Waters and Gilmour initially worked together, playing the video game Donkey Kong in their spare time, they eventually chose to work separately.
They would occasionally meet to discuss the work that had been completed; while this method was not in itself unusual, Gilmour began to feel strained, sometimes barely maintaining his composure. Kamen too felt pressured; Waters had never been a confident vocalist and on one occasion, after repeated studio takes, Waters noticed him writing on a notepad. Losing his temper, he demanded to know what Kamen was doing, only to find that Kamen had been writing "I Must Not Fuck Sheep" repeatedly.
Like previous Pink Floyd albums, The Final Cut used sound effects combined with advances in audio recording technology. Mason's contributions were mostly limited to recording sound effects for The Post War Dream - Pink Floyd - MP3 Stereo (CD) experimental Holophonic system, an audio processing technique used to add an enhanced three-dimensional effect to the recordings; The Final Cut is the second album ever to feature this technology.
After months of poor relations, and following a final confrontation, Gilmour was removed from the credit list as producer, but was still paid production royalties. He may have threatened to release the album as a solo record, although Pink Floyd were contracted to EMI and such a move would have been unlikely.
He said the experience forced them to accept that they had not worked together as a band since their album Wish You Were Here. Storm Thorgersona founder member of Hipgnosis designers of most of Pink Floyd's previous and future artworkwas passed over for the cover design. Instead, Waters created the cover himself, using photographs taken by his brother-in-law, Willie Christie.
The poppy is a recurring design theme. The interior gatefold featured three photographs, the first depicting an outdoor scene with an outstretched hand holding three poppies and in the distance, a soldier with his back to the camera. Two more photographs show a welder at work, his mask emblazoned with the Japanese Rising Sun Flagand a nuclear explosion; a clear reference to "Two Suns in the Sunset".
The album's lyrics are printed on the gatefold. Side one of the vinyl disc carries an image of a poppy field and on side two, a soldier with a knife The Post War Dream - Pink Floyd - MP3 Stereo (CD) his back lies face down amongst the poppies, a dog beside him. The back cover features a photograph of a soldier standing upright and holding a film canister, with a knife protruding from his back;  the film canister and knife may reflect Waters' tumultuous relationship with The Wall film director Alan Parker.
It was less successful in America, peaking at number six on the Billboard album charts. It was given double Platinum certification in Gilmour claimed that this relative commercial failure supported his assertion that much of the material was weak. It's absolutely ridiculous to judge a record solely on sales. If you're going to use sales as the sole criterion, it makes Grease a better record than Graceland. Anyway, I was in a greengrocer's shop, and this woman of about forty in a fur coat came up to me.
She said she thought it was the most moving record she had ever heard. Her father had also been killed in World War II, she explained. And I got back into my car with my three pounds of potatoes and drove home and thought, good enough.
The album was accompanied by a short film, also titled The Final Cut. The Final Cut was released on compact disc in The Final Cut received mixed reviews. Waters stopped with The Walland The Final Cut isolates and juggles the identical themes of that elephantine concept with no fresh momentum to drive them. Sloan to Paul Kantner. In Pink Floyd's case, it still works, partially through the understatement and ingenuity of the music and the special effects With no plans to tour the album,  Waters and Gilmour instead turned to solo projects.
Gilmour recorded and toured About Face inusing it to express his feelings on a range of topics from the murder of musician John Lennon to his relationship with Waters, who also began to tour his new solo album, The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking. InThe Post War Dream - Pink Floyd - MP3 Stereo (CD), faced with a potentially ruinous lawsuit from his record company and band members,  Waters resigned.
He believed that Pink Floyd was a "spent force". Gilmour's team responded by issuing a press release affirming that Pink Floyd would continue; he told a Sunday Times reporter that "Roger is a dog in the manger and I'm going to fight him". Waters wrote to EMI and Columbia declaring his intention to leave the group, asking them to release him from his contractual obligations. With a legal case pending, he dispensed with manager Steve O'Rourke and employed Peter Rudge to manage his affairs.
Owing to the combination of Pink Floyd's partial breakup and Waters' dominance on the project, The Final Cut is sometimes viewed as a de facto Waters solo album.
Writing for AllMusicStephen Thomas Erlewine said "with its anger, emphasis on lyrics, and sonic textures, it's clear that it's the album that Waters intended it to be.
And it's equally clear that Pink Floyd couldn't have continued in this direction. And either failing or succeeding brilliantly. It's up to you to decide whether this record is a success or a failure, but I'd go with the former every time.
