Nov. 7, 1987
Venue(?), Quebec, Canada
Transcribed by Rick Karhu from the CD 'Goodbye Mr. Pink
Floyd', an FM radio broadcast.
Roger does a strangled sort of CWTAE scream just before the guitar
During the intro to Money. (Paul Carrack sings lead.)
Announcer (as if on radio; drown out by sound effects): [97
working...] free production... [energy for ... production.] In 198,
the world spent (*) 110 billion dollars [on it] but in the same year the
world [hope/whole] organization [...] was 520 billion. That's the
equivalent of over [six hours]. (* bass starts.)
First line of lyrics starts in immediately. Over the line "more pay
and you're okay" you can hear the sound of the airplane sound effects
and explosion from The Wall (!) from the scene where Pink's father dies.
After the "football team" line you can faintly hear:
Some woman (backing singer maybe?): Money... that's right.
More airplane sound effect can be heard quietly over the "high
fidelity... lear jet" lines too.
Paul Carrack (? over the ending chord): [I think I'm broke with
Female singers (old-style, harmonized radio call letters jingle):
Roger: EIN... ZWEI... DREI... HAMMER!
ITF. During the first non-vocal verse, the backup singers do a
harmonized melody uncannily similar to the line "All the lonely boys"
from Towers of Faith (When The Wind Blows.)
Roger: (after the line "I'd have all of you shot"): Bullets from
HAC. (Paul Carrack sings lead.) Sounds like Paul sings "We're so
happy we can prob'ly count."
HAC goes right from the end of the second chorus into the beginning
of P(3DO) with some very obnoxious, loud, pig grunting at the start;
skips the entire middle section of the song and the "Whitehouse" verse;
no guitar solo outro. Jumps from "You're nearly a cry" to an extended
piano intro into a very jazzy WYWH. Audience really reacts when they
recognize the first guitar line!
Unusual bongo & shaker intro (almost reminiscent of Learning To Fly)
leads into Mother. Audience absolutely freaks when hear the first lines!
Loud cheering after almost every line. They sing along very audibly with
"...break my balls." Distant booing after "Mama should I trust the
government?" (presumably the audience is answering the question, not
booing Roger.) Roger replaces the word "mother" with "mama" throughout
the song. Mother ends. Tape cut. Acoustic intro, lazy chord strums.
Roger: Bon! Alors, ce chanson, c'est pour mon pere... et tous les
autres. (translation: Good! And so, this song, it's for my father... and
all the others.)
Get Your Filthy Hands Off My Desert; segues seamlessly into
If starts; very faithful to the original except for some
uncharacteristic, country sounding guitar licks in the middle.
Jim Ladd: This is some live rock-n-roll at K.A.O.S. where music
comes out of chaos in a song called The Powers That Be. (The song
title overlaps with the opening line of the song.)
Breathe, Paul Carrack sings lead. Sax solo over the ending.
Roger: Voici... (translation: Here....) (Screams.)
A very bouncy version of Brain Damage starts. Audience erupts in loud
cheers after first line, and many thereafter. Weird, quiet clattering
sound during "You raise the blade..." Doesn't sound like it's
Roger (after "and throw away the key"): Tout le monde!
Band goes quiet, expecting the audience to sing the next line which,
embarassingly enough, they don't. Roger expertly picks back up the
reigns on "... head, but it's not me."
Outro has no synth solo. Lots of the laughing from the album, and a
few bursts of canned audience laughter (like a sitcom.); segues into
ABITW part 1 (audience claps along with intro.) Chops most of the
middle section of the song. (Sorry all you Roger fans, but this really
screams for Dave's playing.) Helicopter sound effects.
Roger: YOU! YES YOU! STAND STILL LADDIE!
HDOOL (very jazzy version, lounge-like piano. Odd.)
ABITW pt. 2. First line is sung a capella. Guitar player slips in
fill from ABITW pt. 1 during chorus (very clever.) Repeats the second
verse after the guitar solo.
ABITW pt. 2. Fades over audience cheering.
