We’ve redesigned the official “Floydian Slip” sticker. And, like our previous sticker, we’re making it available free for the asking.
Get yours by mailing a SASE to:
Random Precision Media

A SASE is a “self-addressed stamped envelope.” Put your own address on an empty #10 business-size envelope, affix First Class postage to it, and mail it to us using another envelope.
Fans outside the United States can get stickers by sending $1.50 (US) return postage via PayPal to email@example.com, and we’ll mail a handful of stickers your way.
Stickers are 2″ x 4″ glossy vinyl.
We have a handful of the old design still in stock, and will pass those out in addition to the new design, first-come, first-serve.

A 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.

Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason has signed 10 limited edition prints, which are being sold to benefit charity.
Digital Artist Tim Wakefield uses soundwaves as templates to create some pretty far out artwork. His Pink Floyd piece is title “Careful with That Axe, Eugene,” inspired by the 1968 song of the same name. The number was originally released as the B-side to the “Point Me at the Sky” single, and later appeared on the 1971 “Relics” compilation.
Ten prints of his Floyd piece, signed by Mason, along with works inspired by Alice Cooper, Kate Bush, Queen, Eric Clapton and many others are being sold at the Indiegogo site.
Sales of the prints benefit the War Child’s Children of Syria Appeal, which will create safe havens in Syrian refugee camps to help protect children affected by the conflict.
The Floyd piece is 40″ x 40″ and goes for $1,000.
