It was on this day, April 27, 1969 that Pink Floyd appeared at Mothers Club in Erdington, Birmingham, England. Radio 1 D J John Peel reviewed the gig as ‘…sounding like dying galaxies lost in sheer corridors of time and space’. Recordings from this show were included in the group’s 1969 album ” Ummagumma” An appropriate title and response to Peel’s ethereal “Spacey” description of the bands performance!
Here’s that spacey sound now:
P.S. For those of you who actually know what “Ummagumma” means, please refrain from mentioning it here! We wouldn’t want the language police to give us any trouble here at SMS!?
