It would have been interesting to see what the reaction to a popular band releasing something so avant-garde right after such a massive success would have been, but the little bits that have made it out of the "Household Objects" sessions aren't particularly interesting.

Yeah, there are some tracks on the super fancy pants deluxe version of Dark Side of the Moon.  I'm sure they abandoned the idea when they realized it was a dead end.

They would have likely lost the audience that DSOTM brought them and gone back to Syd Barrett era levels of popularity.

They'd probably still be together though because Roger wouldn't have turned into such a miserable bastard.

Geez, next thing you know some uncreative type will make an album about buildings and food.

Pink Floyd was always hit or very, very wide miss. Anyone who says they like all of their stuff is either lying, unaware of a lot of their stuff, or extremely high.

It was Roger Waters, dumbass.

frueqent PF album designer Storm Thorgerson (RIP) told a story before he died of -- i forget which album it is, but the one with the picture of the cow on it -- for the cover art, Waters said he wanted household objects to the cover, and said (over the phone), "you know, things like, a doorknob, a spoon, a clock on the wall, a plough....."  dude heard "cow", drove out to the country, found the cow chilling, boom.  that's how that happened.

They do? I thought it was pretty well known that Syd Barrett's mental breakdown was at least partly due to all the hard drugs he had done.

GAH! Make it stop.

Being hypocritical though because we had "band" back in the day and I played the glass coffee table.

Well, that's a very forceful and poorly articulated opinion. What was Roger Waters, dumbass?

while i agree that a cow is not a household object, the point is dude thought Waters said "cow", but Waters said "plough".

"Now, we're not going to say that members never dabbled in their youth, and founding member Syd Barrett's LSD abuse has been well documented, but according to keyboardist Richard Wright, they were clean by the time they were recording their most influential albums, long after Barrett had left the group. He flat out says, "If you mean Pink Floyd took drugs -- you're wrong. There is no way that I could play music and take any kind of drug at the same time."

From some Cracked article.

I know that, but you'd think there would have been a "wait, what?" moment, or at least that they'd go over the list one more time to make sure they got everything right.

I thought it was common knowledge that Wright was a huge coke freak.

well, they were all on drugs.

and i think the article ended with waters saying basically, "that's fantastic!"  which goes back to the first point.

I think they're full of it. Probably trying to distance themselves from Barret and 'his' Pink Floyd, and their uninspired and pretentious Pink Floyd.

If it had been an entire album's worth of a capella Great Gig in the Sky, I'd have forked over three week's allowance for it.  I could listen to that song on replay for a thousand years and not get tired of it.

Yeah, you know, the Barret Pink Floyd was a generic psychedelic rock band. It's only when Roger Waters took over and they started doing concept albums that they became interesting.

I had no idea they considered such a silly venture.  But I respect the thought.  Heck, I've done it myself (silly song made by me using only kitchen implements)

However, comma, a whole album of that?  No thanks.

I enjoy all eras of Pink Floyd to varying degrees, and was extremely obsessed with The Wall during late adolescence, but if allowed only one of their albums, I would choose The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn.

perhaps inventive, but would have been a failure... making noise without instruments didn't become awesome until people decided it was time to make noise.  pink floyd would have been too musical.

for example, einsterzunde neubaten

started rough and I nearly bailed, but the melody at the end was great and the percussion seemed to gain focus.

I'm playing it again...ahhahahaha wtf

Yeah I was a bit obsessed with fivetuplets at the time...  I'd like to think I've since "matured" (sarcasm).  Thanks.

Awesome. My first copy of Piper was a borrowed cassette tape that I played until it broke and repaired with scotch tape. I bought my friend a copy on CD in thanks (and one for myself).
