Inflatable pig grounded from auction

Posted August 29, 2015 by Floydian Slip

algieAlgie, the inflatable pig that famously flew over the Battersea Power Station on the cover of Pink Floyd’s 1977 “Animals” album, won’t be going up for bid after all.

Thursday we reported Durrants would be auctioning the pig, along with a number of other rock and roll inflatables created by Rob Harries, owner of Air Artists in Halesworth, creator of the items.

Turns out the auction house was premature in listing Algie as part of the auction.

“The auctioneers rather jumped the gun with the list I provided them and publicized the fact the Pink Floyd pig might be one of the lots,” Harries tells the BBC.

“I thought I should offer it back to Pink Floyd and they do want to welcome it home again.”

The Sept. 15 auction will still include a 15-foot anatomically-correct pig used by the Floyd after Roger Waters’ departure from the group; and a 60-foot pig’s head and the teacher inflatable used during Waters’ 1990 concert of “The Wall” in Berlin, Germany.

Details of the auction will be available at the Durrants website.

Pink Floyd inflatables to hit auction block

Posted August 27, 2015 by Floydian Slip

algieA number of Pink Floyd inflatables, including the pig that flew over Battersea Power Station on the cover of the band’s 1977 album “Animals,” will be going up for bid.

On Sept. 15, Durrants will auction off a collection of rock and roll inflatables, which also includes items associated with Roger Waters‘, solo; Queen; The Rolling Stones and others.

Other Floyd-related items will include a 15-foot anatomically-correct pig used by the Floyd after Waters’ departure from the group; and a 60-foot pig’s head and the teacher inflatable used during Waters’ 1990 concert of “The Wall” in Berlin, Germany.

The items come from Rob Harries, owner of Air Artists in Halesworth, creator of the items.

Algie (pictured), the pig from the “Animals” cover, famously broke free from its tether during photography. Listen to Hipgnosis’s Aubrey ‘Po’ Powell tell the story when we spoke with him in January.

Details of the auction will be available at the Durrants website.

David Gilmour covers The Beatles

Posted August 20, 2015 by Floydian Slip

mojo263The upcoming issue of Mojo magazine includes a previously unreleased David Gilmour recording of The Beatles‘ “Here There and Everywhere.”

Gilmour shared the recording, which he made with his son, Joe, with the magazine a couple of years ago. It’ll be included in the “David Gilmour & Friends” CD that ships with Mojo issue 263, on newsstands starting Aug. 25.

“I really wish I had been in The Beatles,” Gilmour tells Mojo. “[They] taught me how to play guitar, I learnt everything. The bass parts, the lead, the rhythm, everything. They were fantastic.”

The other tracks on the CD are from artists who have collaborated with Gilmour over the years, such as Robert Wyatt, Graham Nash, David Crosby, Ben Watt, The Orb, Phil Manzanara and others.

Gilmour is featured on a total of six of the tracks.

The issue also includes an interview with Gilmour.
