Hungarian band Omega sounded a bit like early 70s Floyd to me.

I was unaware of the band Toy Matinee, until someone posted a song on another forum that they said sounded like Pink Floyd.

It turns out to be a band including a number of Pink Floyd and Roger Waters related musicians. Patrick Leonard, Tim Pierce, and Guy Pratt was sort of involved though not a formal member of the band. I did a search on this forum, and it seems that they were only mentioned in one thread here: a thread asking for questions to ask Guy Pratt.

This is a song which has pretty much the same title as the band and the album it's from. The Toy Matinee.



Sounds pretty Floydian to me. But, some of the members of the band have had practice.

I think the music on this video sounds like it could be from TER. Though, not as distiinctive sounding as Rick and Dave would have made it. (There are no drums nor percussion.) I keep on expecting it to play the SOYCD theme.

I was surprised to not find Quicksand when I searched on the forum. A number of mentions of David Bowie's song, and a few mentions of the colloid suspension of sand in water. But, not this band.

Personally I think there is no way that this is not inspired by PF. About 1960-70 PF. And, I think it's pretty decent too.
