just how good is pink floyd?

now, i'll be the first to agree that some of their songs are just flat out unlistenable. i'm all for experimentation, and i realize some will be able to understand and appreciate everything they've ever done.

but a song like jugband blues is just so amazing, and for all the right reasons.

it's so simple.

it starts nice, goes crazy in the middle and you don't expect it to come back...but it does.

"and the sea isn't green,
and i love the queen..."

such simple lyrics that were probably made without ever intending to mean anything, but they still sound good together anyway.

then there's us and them. unreal. the first 3 minutes of that song are like none other.

carrion.

Forgive my compromised sense of humour, but I want to answer our host's question about who Pink Floyd is - he's one of our finest actors.

yeah, i think it's pretty safe to assume that everyone here knows who they are.

noone's making fun of them, sean, relax.

gosh, you really know how to bring down a crowd.

arent there already 5 threads about pink floyd in the band index??

your blatant disregard for the band index will only lead to its demise.

now before you post a new thread about creed, remember to check the band index, there are two fine Creed threads you can add to.

go away, newbie.

those threads were old, and if we're gonna recycle the same shit over and over again, that'd be nothing short of counter-productive and would create an even more stale atmosphere here at bang and clatter.

like we need that. whatever "original" thread pops around here is either about the killers or some lame list thread that i probably even started myself.

Sorrow is my personal favourite.

One might say it is... "distortionalicious".

ah shit cujo, i forgot to tell you.

i downloaded your last mp3 you sent me...

certainly interesting, though not as easy to digest as your other ones. it's got a "music" feel to it (the band).

Agreed, it's a little harsh at the moment.

Not everything should be easy to swallow though.

What?

Literally that's all I mean. If you're looking for a sexywink I'm not giving you one.

Really.

You can forget it.

I prefer their 60s stuff really, its more unique and odd, whereas when they got into the '70s, excess took over, IMO.

I bet not even DaveC, who knows a lot about the Floyd, knows about the radio promotion story starring Dick Asher and the single Another Brick In The Wall Part II.. uh yeah, the good old days of CBS
