Roger Waters Under the Rubble – New Album Demos

Roger Waters just posted a video of him recording a new song in Logic Pro, recording software, on his computer. The composition is called Under The Rubble and features the lyrics below. He recorded it at 11:53am on Thursday 28th December and shared it today, the day after. “Papa, I want to go home now, papa please take me home, mama please tell me I’m dreaming, and ill wake up somewhere and I won’t be alone, mama its dark here, dad has stopped breathing, mama mama”. There appears to be another version of his demo on his computer desktop. That one is saved as “Its Dark here mama”.

David Gilmour New Album 2024 at British Grove Studios

David Gilmour New Album 2024 Work in Progress

David Gilmour New Album 2024 continues to be worked on well up to Christmas! Lyricist Polly Samson has shared some more excellent photos of David Gilmour at work in the recording studio working on his forthcoming 2024 new album. Looking at all the photos that have been posted, there is a David Gilmour band coming together with some old and new faces alike. We know about Guy Pratt on bass and Roger Eno on Piano, both worked on Gilmour’s previous album. But now we have a couple of new faces. New to me anyway. Adam Betts is on drums. He has played with the likes of Jarvis Cocker from Pulp and Pete Tong. Tom Herbert is on bass. He plays the double bass and electric bass. There is no use making a new album if you are not going to do a tour too. I can’t wait to hear there...

Roger Waters with Jim Ladd

Jim Ladd Passes Away, Roger Waters Reflects

Jim Ladd, the American disc jockey, radio producer and writer, has passed away from a heart attack on 16th December 2023. Jim Ladd and Roger Waters were involved primarily through their collaboration on Roger Waters’ album “Radio K.A.O.S.,” released in 1987. In this concept album, Jim Ladd’s voice is featured, providing spoken segments and playing a character within the album’s narrative. This inclusion of a real-life radio personality added a layer of authenticity and depth to the album’s exploration of communication and media themes. Beyond “Radio K.A.O.S.,” their professional relationship was marked by mutual respect and shared artistic sensibilities. Ladd was known for his appreciation and understanding of Waters’ music, often featuring it on his radio shows. This helped in bringing Waters’ solo work to a wider audience, especially in the United States where Ladd’s influence in the rock music radio scene was significant.
