Pink Floyd - “Matilda Mother
The Piper at the Gates of Dawn
August 4, 1967

There was a king who ruled the land. 
His majesty was in command. 
With silver eyes the scarlet eagle 
Showers silver on the people. 
Oh Mother, tell me more. 

Why’d’ya have to leave me there 
Hanging in my infant air 
Waiting? 
You only have to read the lines 
They’re scribbly black and everything shines. 

Across the stream with wooden shoes 
With bells to tell the king the news 
A thousand misty riders climb up 
Higher once upon a time. 

Wandering and dreaming 
The words have different meaning. 
Yes they did. 

For all the time spent in that room 
The doll’s house, darkness, old perfume 
And fairy stories held me high on 
Clouds of sunlight floating by. 
Oh Mother, tell me more 
Tell me more. 
Aaaaaaaah 
Aaaaaaaah 
Aaaaaaaah

Pink Floyd - “Interstellar Overdrive
Live Album, London ‘66-‘67

“Interstellar Overdrive” was one of the first very psychedelic instrumental improvisations recorded by a rock band. It was seen as Pink Floyd’s first foray into space rock (along with “Astronomy Domine”, “Pow R. Toc H.” and “Lucifer Sam”), although band members would later disparage this term. Despite its encapsulation of their concert repertoire under the leadership of guitarist and composer Syd Barrett, the long, improvisational, freeform structure of the piece is not particularly representative of the group’s recorded output. As drummer Nick Mason states in his book Inside Out: A Personal History of Pink Floyd, live versions of the song featured many sections that did not appear on the album, and would often last more than 20 minutes. During the band’s days playing in residence at London underground clubs such as the UFO (Underground Freak Out), the song usually opened their show. It occupied other positions, including the encore, until it was retired from the band’s setlist in 1970.”

Pink Floyd - “Astronomy Domine
The Piper at the Gates of Dawn
August 4, 1967

“The song opens with the voice of their manager at the time Peter Jenner, reading the names of stars through a megaphone. The intention of this opening is to replicate the feeling of outer space, with Jenner’s voice sounding like an astronaut’s over an intercom. Barrett’s Fender Esquire then seemingly emerges from the distance and grows louder. At 0:19 a rapid beeping sound appears, again reaffirming the feeling of distant space.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astronomy_Domine

Why is this guy such a jerk towards Pink Floyd? Roger tells him like it is, which is brilliant.
