PINK FLOYD : ASTRONOMY DOMINE [UMMAGUMMA, 1969]

Ο Syd Barrett, εγκέφαλος, τραγουδιστής και κιθαρίστας των Pink Floyd στα πρώτα τους βήματα, είχε περιγράψει κάποια στιγμή τους υπόλοιπους του γκρουπ σαν μια παρέα από ανθρώπους “όχι ιδιαίτερα ενδιαφέροντες”.
Εν έτει 1969, μετά την απομάκρυνσή του λόγω των γνωστών προβλημάτων, τα “όχι τόσο ενδιαφέροντα” εναπομείναντα μέλη, μαζί με τον αντικαταστάτη του,
David Gilmour, επανεπισκέπτονται το magnum opus του SB, κάνοντάς το …ακόμα πιο ενδιαφέρον.

Syd Barrett, the brain, singer and guitarist of Pink Floyd in the early days, gave a description once of the other members as “a bunch of people not so interesting”.
In 1969, after his removal due to the well known problems, the “not so interesting” remaining members, along with
David Gilmour, his replacement, would revisit SB’s magnum opus, managing to make it …even more interesting than before.

Lime and limpid green, a second scene
A fight between the blue you once knew
Floating down, the sound resounds
Around the icy waters underground
Jupiter and Saturn, Oberon, Miranda and Titania
Neptune, Titan, Stars can frighten
Lime and limpid green, a second scene
A fight between the blue you once knew
Floating down, the sound resounds
Around the icy waters underground
Jupiter and Saturn, Oberon, Miranda and Titania
Neptune, Titan, Stars can frighten
Blinding signs flap
Flicker, flicker, flicker blam
Pow, pow
Stairway scare Dan dare who’s there?
Lime and limpid green, the sounds around
The icy waters under
Lime and limpid green, the sounds around
The icy waters underground

    Very great! Fab history on the band, and what I think is the beginnings of the Pink Floyd we came to know.
    I enjoyed the listen, and the sound of the times is evident. There’s something Who(ish) at the beginning.. and I hear something else … Can’t quite put my finger on it.
