Careful With That Axe, Eugene/One Of These Days

Fruits de Mer Records link CwTAE Russia's progressive rockers get their own 7" of vinyl to themselves and use it to reinterpret two of Pink Floyd's classic tracks: Careful With That Axe, Eugene One Of These Days Yes, there's a certain 'chopping' theme to this single - i don't know why, it seemed a good idea at the time. And maybe it was, 'cos Vespero do a grand job of both tracks - giving them a more modern feel but still paying appropriate respect to the originals. I'm sure whoever invented the 7" single had nothing like this in mind at the time for the format - but the guys squeeze everything they can into the grooves and it makes for epic listening. FdM afficionados will know Vespero from their Faust cover on last year's Annual and from 'strange fish two' - and they won't be disappointed with their first all-vespero release on FdM. colour vinyl, and va stunning double-sdied foldout poster Careful With That Axe, Eugene originally released as the B-side of their single 'Point Me at the Sky' and is also featured on the Relics compilation album; live versions can also be found on Ummagumma and in the film Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii. Pink Floyd re-recorded the track for Michelangelo Antonioni's film Zabriskie Point, retitling it 'Come In Number 51, Your Time Is Up' One Of These Days the opening track from Pink Floyd's 1971 album Meddle. The song is instrumental except for a distorted, low voice that says, "One of these days I'm going to cut you into little pieces". The threat, a rare vocal contribution by Nick Mason, was recorded through a ring modulator; it was aimed at Sir Jimmy Young, the then BBC Radio 1 and Radio 2 DJ who the band supposedly disliked because of his tendency to babble (didn’t they all?)   You can order release from our bandcamp merch page
