HEY ZOMBIE..... GET A CLUE

The band was billed as THE Pink Floyd until it was explained as to where the name came from.

Do YOU know the origin of the name ??

Mean what you say.

They were originally called The Pink Floyd Sound.

Not The Pink Floyd.

Named after Pink Anderson and Floyd Council.

Incorrect. In ads, at least, in Europe, (France, specifically, and maybe Spain) they were referred to as "The Pink Floyd" sporadically until at least 1969.

Leave Jesus out of it.

Syd Barrett-led era: 1965–1968
Pink Floyd evolved from an earlier band, formed in 1965, which was at various times called Sigma 6, The Megga Deaths, The Screaming Abdabs, The Architecture Abdabs, and The Abdabs. When this band split up, some members — guitarists Rado "Bob" Klose and Roger Waters, drummer Nick Mason, and wind instrument player Rick Wright — formed a new band called Tea Set. After a brief stint with a lead vocalist named Chris Dennis,[6] guitarist and vocalist Syd Barrett joined the band, with Waters moving to bass.[7]
When Tea Set found themselves on the same bill as another band with the same name, Barrett came up with the alternative name The Pink Floyd Sound, reputedly after two blues musicians, Pink Anderson and Floyd Council.[8][9] However, in "The A-Z of Names in Rock," Mark Beech argues that these two musicians were unknown in Britain, citing an item in the London Evening Standard, according to which Roger Waters shared a flat in 1967 with Mick Steadman, whose cats were named Pink and Floyd.
For a time after this they oscillated between 'Tea Set' and 'The Pink Floyd Sound', with the latter name eventually winning out. The Sound was dropped fairly quickly, but the definite article was still used occasionally for several years afterward; David Gilmour is known to have referred to the group as "The Pink Floyd" as late as 1984,[10] though they never released any recordings under that name.
In the early days, the band covered rhythm and blues staples such as "Louie, Louie", but by the time the Pink Floyd name was entrenched, they had gained notoriety for their psychedelic interpretations, with extended improvised sections and 'spaced out' solos.

Barrett might have been predisposed physically to losing it after taking LSD and whatever else he did but he was certainly more of a victim to drugs than a nutcase or a freaked out soul.

Barrett was probably the biggest reason Pink Floyd happened and became so successful so show some respect!

"Interstellar Overdrive", 10/25/69, Amougies, Actuel Festival. FZ was the emcee. Beefheart played at this festival too, and their performance of "My Human Gets Me Blues" at the event has been released on CB's "Grow Fins" box set, with FZ introducing the band.

Thanks for posting that! Yes, that photo settled a lot of arguments when it surfaced four or five years ago. At least on the Pink Floyd lists I subscribed to at the time.

Y'know, I don't think I realized that any of the Amougies show was *on* "Grow Fins"... I'll have to pull that off the shelf when I get home...

A disc of nothing but Frank's jams at Amougies was eventually compiled and circulated. An interesting historical artifact, but not his best performances.

Nice to see the level of *love* displayed around here. Wow!

In fact, it's on both disc 4 and disc 5 - the audio track is track #1 on disc 5, and video footage of it is one of the CD-ROM tracks included on disc 4!

I have seen some downloadable (by Torrent) bootlegs of the Amougie Festival on www.dimeadozen.org
Don't know if Zappa is on any of them though.

This is probably the worlds greatest website for collecting and trading bootlegs (except maybe for Zappateers.com) for just about any sort of band and music you could imagine !!!

Try searching under ''Pink Floyd''...

This might be off-topic here, but have any recordings surfaced of FZ's jams with the free jazz musicians at the Amougies festival? This pic is kind of tantalizing:

I mean, the Floyd is fine and all, but I want to hear FZ jam with Grachan Moncur and Archie Shepp. :mrgreen:

Yeah. I think he would have gone insane anyway, drugs just amplified it. His solo stuff is pretty cool, too. Octopus is a beast song.
