The nurses at the insane asylum are sedating the protagonist of the album by giving him drugs. The title of the song refers to the fact that they are arbitrarily choosing which pills to give him. The Any Colour YOu Like - Pink Floyd - The Method Of Absence - The 1975 US Tour in the song reflects the impact of these pills on the protagonist's mind. Login Register Login with Facebook.

Recorded Live At Knebworth, June 6. Shine On You Crazy Diamond. Comfortably Numb. Recorded Live At Knebworth, High Hopes. We had ordered some JBL long-throw horns, the old seven-foot-long fibreglass festival horns, but didn't get delivery of them until the Friday night. So literally on Saturday morning, Robbie and I were building them into the rig. We had the Floyd set up totally independent of the support bands [which included Captain Beefheart and Linda Lewis], which was the normal approach for us, although we would normally run the show for them.
However, because the Floyd crew had been on tour, we ended up engineering just our own section of the show, and I brought in Trevor Jordan, Bryan Grant, and Perry Cooney ex-IES to look after front of house for the support bands and do the changeovers on stage, so Robbie was fresh for the Floyd.
S eth Goldman had been mixing the monitors for the band on their American dates but, as Taylor Any Colour YOu Like - Pink Floyd - The Method Of Absence - The 1975 US Tourthe decision Piel De Asno - Various - Los Mejores Cuentos Vol.
40 made that it was not financially viable to finance his return trip purely for the Knebworth show. I had only been around for about a year, and I remember thinking how strange it was that a band this big would quibble about such an expense!
W hile the first half of the Knebworth set was dedicated to the forthcoming album material, complete Any Colour YOu Like - Pink Floyd - The Method Of Absence - The 1975 US Tour specially commissioned Gerald Scarfe animation projections, the second set was Floyd's last ever complete live re-creation of " The Dark Side Of The Moon " to feature Roger Waters, and was followed by "Echoes" and a dazzling fireworks display. Or at least that's how it seemed to most of the fans. Behind the scenes, however, the crew were suffering a technical nightmare.
F or previous outdoor festivals, Floyd had used the Mole Richardson generator trucks that were common in the film industry, but Knebworth was the first instance where the band's crew had to book generators themselves. When the Floyd went on, the keyboards were all out of tune and sounded terrible, and then the straw caught fire! If we'd have known of the hazards, we probably would have run the keyboards from batteries, and it would have been just as effective.
So Knebworth was Robbie's baptism of fire as a production manager, but you learn! Knebworth crew list. And the fourth photo comes from the very end of Shine On.
Note how it shows that the sky was almost dark enough for proper lighting and projections, a full hour into the show. But the mirror-ball flower was removed after the first set and did not make a return appearance.
The remaining six images come from various unspecified points during the Dark Side set. The series ends with a fine action shot of Dick Parry wailing on sax, presumably during Money. Or perhaps it was Echoes. Although Mr. Screen is visible in many of these images, actual projections were somewhat sparse during the show, as I recall. There were no projections during the first set, and the screen was dark for long passages during the Dark Side set when one might have expected more visual drama.
