|The Floyd Effect don't just play the
music of Pink Floyd - they recreate it.
At Tower Arts Centre in Winchester, which is a small location, they got the sound balance exactly right - no mean feat - and then quietly introduced each number with a minimum of fuss - because their music was about to speak for itself. They generated an intimate atmosphere where they treated the audience as experts and faithfully recreated Pink Floyd for them.
The performance of Dark Side of the Moon was breathtakingly accurate even down to the sound loops to introduce Money and Time. As used to happen with the record, I was able to close my eyes and just let the music wash over me. At no time was I thinking to myself 'not quite right' because everything was exactly right.
Finishing with Comfortably Numb, a relieved sigh went up from the audience - the evening would not have been complete without it.
I took my 18 year old son
with me: he had not listened to Pink Floyd before. Mightily impressed,
he borrowed my copy of Dark Side to play in his room. "Preferred the
live performance" he said. "The music was exactly the same but watching
it live was better."
