(When I saw Floyd at the SIS everyone on the floor of the arena had to sit on school-type plastic chairs (!?). When sections of the crowd started standing up, others had to follow in order to see. The government censors stopped the concert twice, and had the lead singer explain to the audience that they had to put the chairs back in place and sit down, or the concert wouldn't restart. They'd already played 'Another brick in the wall' that night, but they repeated it again in their 2nd or 3rd encore. The irony wasn't lost on many of us I expect.

Pink Floyd Another Brick In The Wall Music Video

Passing a school this morning, and hearing a teacher rousing her pupils to a 'Nuremburg-like' rapture, I was once again reminded of this song....

Another Floyd track. This time a re-master, that comes out absolutely pin-sharp and sublime...

The topic is dead as there is no current music of any note at all. Nothing.

Long live rock and roll...
