Pink Floyds Mondlandungs-Jam

(Youtube Direkt, via )

Ich bin zwar etwas spacemüde, kein Wunder nach dem Mondmarathon am Wochenende, aber der hier muss noch: Pink Floyd haben während der Mondlandung in einem BBC-Studio gejamt. Space-Rock meets Space-Travel, Snip aus einem Artikel von David Gilmour beim Guardian.

We [Pink Floyd] were in a BBC TV studio jamming to the landing. It was a live broadcast, and there was a panel of scientists on one side of the studio, with us on the other. I was 23.

The programming was a little looser in those days, and if a producer of a late-night programme felt like it, they would do something a bit off the wall. Funnily enough I've never really heard it since, but it is on YouTube. They were broadcasting the moon landing and they thought that to provide a bit of a break they would show us jamming. It was only about five minutes long. The song was called Moonhead - it's a nice, atmospheric, spacey, 12-bar blues.
