INSIDE STUDIO – Pink Floyd meets Euphonic Dissonance

by on Apr.04, 2011, under MUSIC, POLITICS, TECH MESSIAH, UPDATES

Brian brings you the latest on Euphonic Dissonance’s newest song…

Here’s a sneak peak of our newest song we’re working on. It’s “Not Now John” originally recorded by Pink Floyd on their THE FINAL CUT album way back in 1983.

Progressive Industrial band Euphonic Dissonance perform Pink Floyd song Not Now John

Decided we just had to do this track after someone who had never heard the original Pink Floyd song mistook it for something Euphonic Dissonance recorded. Flattery will get you everywhere. Needless to say – we had to indulge this bright new idea and try our best to create this song in our image while still retaining its original raw energy. Not an easy task.

We have most of the foundation of the song recorded. Now we need to build the frame and put a roof on it by adding vocals and lead guitar. There seems to be a lot of excitement about what we have created – and it isn’t finished yet. Hopefully you will feel that same excitement when you listen to this new track:

Not Now John it’s Euphonic Dissonance approaching Pink Floyd

Brian brings news on Euphonic Dissonance’s newest endeavor –

PINK FLOYD - progressive rock band

Euphonic Dissonance will be taking on the kings of progressive rock – Pink Floyd – by covering their hit song “Not Now John”. Some of you are no doubt shaking your heads and asking “which Pink Floyd song is that? I don’t remember that one. Why don’t they just cover that WE DON’T NEED NO EDUCATION song?” Well here’s a video to refresh your memory because we love you.

Still some of you that aren’t hard core Floyd fans are still shaking your head and that’s okay. “Not Now John” is not one of Pink Floyd’s more popular tracks. Featured on the FINAL CUT album – it was the only single to be released from that album and upon release it was butchered by the censors because it contained the word FUCK. In the music video for the song the phrase FUCK ALL THAT is changed to STUFF ALL THAT. Lame – so lame.

I chose “Not Now John” for multiple reasons.

First and foremost – I must confess I am a huge Roger Waters fan. Yeah, I’m one of those Floydian snobs that won’t listen to anything that doesn’t have Roger on it. Yes, sad but true. I like the other stuff but I just haven’t had the willpower to get any of it on album or single. I know I’m going to catch hell for saying that and I look forward to your scathing remarks. But I just really enjoy the lyrical rantings of Roger Waters and for me the Final Cut album was his greatest work with Pink Floyd – perhaps his greatest work ever. The lyrics, written by Roger Waters, deal with war (particularly the Falklands War) and criticism of UK prime minister Margaret Thatcher (called Maggie in the song), as well as general criticisms of the greed and corruption that Waters saw as dangers to society. Being an America citizen and having witnessed THE GREAT AMERICAN EMPIRE stretch across the globe I have no problem understanding exactly where Roger was coming from when he wrote this in 1983. He was angry with his government much the same way many of us in America are angry with our government now. This brilliant expression of hostility towards corrupt institution and the grand display of political statement are a huge reason I chose this song.

Secondly, we’re a progressive industrial rock band – we had to do at least one progressive rock cover song. You understand – don’t you? Just living up to the namesake.

And third, I’ve always been astounded by the guitar work of David Gilmore and this gives me a chance to do a very poor rendition of his work. His solo in this song is thrilling to hear and I only hope that I can get somewhat close to that feeling in my performance. All that string bending sh*t hurts the fingers!!!! But it will be worth it.

You can expect to hear this new song very soon. Bass drum and organ tracks have been recorded and I’m in the process of adding the guitar. In the meantime here are the lyrics for “Not Now John”.

hollywood waits at the end of the rainbow
who cares what it’s all about
as long as the kids go

we’ll go and get pissed
but not now john
i’ve got to get on with this

hold on john
i think there’s something good on
i used to read books but …

or some other amusement
or it could be reusable shows

and won’t maggie be pleased
