Was literally in St Tropez less than 30 days ago.
was figuratively in St Tropez less than 30 minutes ago

So on this meddle era PF kick and was looking into Live in Pompei

this was an interesting tidbit
The hip hop group the Beastie Boys made a music video for their song "Gratitude" that appears to be a homage to the film. Shot by David Perez in New Zealand in addition to copying its directorial style of slow horizontal tracking shots, overhead shots of the drums, close up shots of the bass and multiple shots of guitar filling the screen, the video shows a number of speaker cabinets that the group managed to purchase, still labelled "Pink Floyd, London". The video ends with a message that reads, "This video is dedicated to the memory of all the people who died at Pompeii."[45] The Beastie Boys claimed in interviews that the song and the video came about from their desire to progress from being a straightforward hip hop group and add vintage instruments and old sound equipment to their repertoire.[14]

We've had walky's recap, but how does a lifelong pink floyd fan not discover meddle until their 40s?

I been listening to Steely Dan’s Royal Scam for two days (in the car). Damn it’s good. The lyrics are whacked…”Agents of the lord..luckless pedestrian….I know you’re out there with rage in your eyes and your megaphones..” for example

707th highest ranked album of all time on Rate your music

I’m going to be listening to Gabriels - Angels and Queens Part One a lot, hopefully it comes out stateside on something other than streaming.. seems to be import only at the moment

And this is hell of a description for a album

The result is Angels and Queens Part One, a stunning mix of haunted gospel, stuttering electronics and timeless melodies. It's as if Marvin Gaye made a record with Portishead, then played it back at the wrong speed.

Great article on the group

Frontwards is my favorite Pavement song and obviously one of my very all-time favorites.
