Floydian slips

Music | Floydian slips

In a Floyd frame of mind, having just finished John Harris’s new hardcover The Dark Side of the Moon (Da Capo), a "behind-the-scenes, in-depth look at the making of one of the greatest studio masterpieces and most commercially successful albums ever recorded," I wandered down to Boston's Orpheum Theater on December 2 to check out the Australian Pink Floyd Show. What a bizarre evening. TAPFS are a Rolls-Royce of a tribute band, and their current set includes a front-to-back performance of The Dark Side of the Moon, which they thoughtfully played before intermission so I could stagger out of the theater when it was over and nurse my sensibilities on the T going home.

Gotta admit, I went to their show last year "04 in October at the Boston Orpheum and was very pleased indeed with the Aussie Floyd, still say if you can catch their show, do so!! It just might be the closest thing you get to a real Floyd show....course if only the boys would stop teasin and start pleasin :)
