Pink Floyd MOJO Special Edition with New Interviews about “Those Memoirs”
|Click images to enlarge
The October 2011 edition of the excellent MOJO magazine has a great new 12 page interview with Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour and drummer Nick Mason as part of the fanfare surrounding the release schedule Why Pink Floyd which, of course, starts on 26th September! The magazine hit newsstands on 23rd August so make sure you get a copy!
The new interviews with David and Nick take us back to the 1970s when trouble was starting to mount between the band and Roger Waters in the context of finding fame on a large scale internationally with the success of Dark Side of the Moon.
Forthcoming Memoirs Discussed
There are references to forthcoming memoirs that Roger Waters is releasing that were written by his recently late friend Nick Sedgwick. The memories are called In The Pink and were originally stopped from being made public by the band.
David Gilmour and Nick Mason discuss these memoirs and why they were barred from release in this edition of MOJO.
So, if you are fed up of magazines regurgitating old Pink Floyd news, then be pleased that MOJO are bringing us Floydians some excellent fresh stories!
Cover-mount CD and Limited Edition Vinyl
The cover-mount CD on the regular MOJO edition features covers by the likes of The Orb doing their take on Shin On. Others include Doug Paisley, Wolf People, Of Arrowe Hill, Lia Ices, Gallops, Matt Berry, Neville Skelly and more!
There is also a limited edition Vinyl version of the magazine (replaces the CD). MOJO asked some of their favourite contemporary artists to celebrate the forthcoming reissue of Pink Floyd‘s landmark album, The Dark Side Of The Moon, by re-recording the tracks for a new, exclusive version of the record that comes in a limited run of 10,000 copies.
This deluxe package features a 12-inch gate-fold vinyl version of Return To The Dark Side Of The Moon and a special collectors’ cover of this month’s issue of the magazine.
The vinyl will be in the shops soon (HMV and WHSmith in the UK / Barnes & Noble in the US).
