An "hoax" record by P Floyd! Fun idea and quite a challenge!
When I were a member of a shortlived project called Labyrinth WHISTLER & wrote music for an hoax Vegetable Man cover! i had a "Vegetable Man & The Journey" concept in mind. P Floyd was inspired by the author James Joyce for their "The Man & They Journey" suite-
"The Vegetable Man & The Journey" never became any suite but
i thougth it had been a cool idea to instead for Joyce have H P Lovecraft as a inspiration.
You know, some similitarities between the destinys of S Barrett and Lovecraft.

Have you stepped up on "No Heaven And No Hell"? if not, is the lyrics published somewhere here?
The lyrics, written by cwta eugene, are posted here, on the original hoax album thread.
Obviously the point of this whole thing is to take the tribute idea one step further and actually try to emulate the Pink Floyd writing technique - so we should think about how PF albums work as a whole. We need to consider the themes to deal with (lyrically and musically), the running order (I assume we're not going to be naive enough to leave the running order as it is on the hoax cover, since we don't know how the tracks will segue when they're written), and if we want to copy the 'cyclic' nature of the 70's albums (with the ends of the album being related to the beginning, eg heartbeat on DSOTM, Shine On, POTW, and Outside the Wall).
Are we going for a concept album that tells a story (The Wall, KAOS), a concept album with repeated musical themes (DSOTM, WYWH), a concept album in so much as we have a general 'theme' (Division Bell, being communication), or just a plain old non-conceptual album?
If we want some kind of musical cohesion between the tracks, then I suggest we get everyone to record demos, and then listen to the others' work and adapt our own if there are any stand out musical phrases or sequences. This would also give us a chance to work out a running order and work on segues.
David, clearly having overthought this idea
