Pigs Might Fly: The Inside Story of “Pink Floyd”

Posted by Notcot on Aug 1, 2012 in Cult Film
Pigs Might Fly: The Inside Story of

Mark Blake’s history of Pink Floyd – the first for fifteen years – has already been acknowledged as the final word on this remarkable band’s life. Lucidly written, incorporating over a hundred new and exclusive interviews, it covers Pink Floyd from their Cambridge beginnings in the early sixties to their triumphant re-formation at Live 8 in 2005 24 years after their last live performance together and the death of their troubled founder-member Syd Barrett a year later. Pink Floyd’s albums like Dark Side of the Moon remain some of rock’s biggest sellers of all every year on CD; Both David Gilmour and Roger Waters continue to do arena and stadium gigs, and the market for this book will exist for many years. In hardback it has reprinted four times already. Aurum’s earlier book about the Clash by Blake’s Mojo stablemate Pat Gilbert, Passion is a Fashion, has so far sold over 22,000 in paperback – and the Floyd cult is far larger. Everyone has commented on the superb “flying pig” cover art and the spine treatment visible right across the bookshop: both are retained for this paperback edition.Mark Blake is a contributing editor at Mojo and Q magazines, and the editor of books on Punk and Bob Dylan. He is currently editing The Wit & Wisdom of Keith Richards for Aurum. He lives in Croydon.

Pocket Shower

Pocket Shower

The feeling of being squeaky clean and freshly showered is often a much desired but scarcely achieved goal when tramping about in the great outdoors. Wet wipes do a barely tolerable job take up way too much space and aren’t environmentally friendly. Well the distant dream of being able to have a proper shower in the middle of nowhere is now a reality thanks to the pocket shower. This tiny gizmo unfolds to reveal a high performance waterproof reservoir that holds a mighty ten litres of water. The black fabric will (given a sunny day) warm the water up in no time. You just string it up to a tree and open up the attached shower head – hey presto you can now luxuriate in a seven minute shower.
