As we all drift head on into what is sure to be a sterling bank holiday weekend, Something for the Weekend delivers an old TV montage for you.
Originally released in 1967, Pink Floyd’s début album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, was a Syd Barrett driven mesh of drug induced psychedelia that was perfectly encapsulated in the album’s closer “Bike”.
This was Pink Floyd at their manic and deranged best before they turned into the exponents of mass soft rock bullshit during the mid-1970’s.
Broadcast on Belgian television during February 1968, this Universal Music Video produced photo montage shows the group in various poses and situations during the verses before descending into Doctor Who-like overlay effects during the chorus and outro.
While not the most mind-blowing this anyone will ever see, it represents an interesting look at music video’s before the days of music videos.
