In this wonderful retrospective at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, psychedelic band, Pink Floyd have put together a fantastic array of pieces in a collection titled – Their Mortal Remains, which is on show until 1 October,2017.
The first 3 days were sold out, such was the clamour to witness a career that started in 1967 to present day, which marks the 50th anniversary of the band’s debut album, ‘The Piper at The Gates of Dawn, followed by the iconic debut single ‘Arnold Layne.’
Alongside artifacts such as ‘The Wall’ stage set used during the tour, there will be interactive and stunning visual imagery, which shows Battersea Power station, which were featured on the cover of the rock band’s Animals album.
Also featured is the holographic image of the prism within black space showcasing the work of album – Dark Side of The Moon.
You can also expect to see lots of instruments and technology that the band used throughout the decades on all albums. Singer and guitarist, David Gilmour, has his black strat on show, while Richard Wright’s moog synthesiser is featured, alongside lots of drum heads, effects pedals and interviews with band members detailing how aspects of equipment was used during the making of albums.
Look out for 6 metre high metallic heads on the tour, that were symbolised on the cover of The Division Bell album as well a life sized model of the British soldier shown on The Final Cut album.
