Pink Floyd : Their Mortal Remains
Their Mortal Remains
Victoria Broackes and Anna Landreth Strong
The first book ever produced with full access to the Pink Floyd archive. Published to accompany the V&A's major summer exhibition, it celebrates 50 years of one of the greatest bands of all time. Five essays tackle different aspects of their far-reaching legacy in music and the visual arts. Authors including Jon Savage, Howard Goodall and Rob Young examine what makes the band truly special, from the mythology underpinning their output, through to their experimentation with technology to create new sounds. Their epic staging and performance impact will also be explored, along with the anti-authoritarianism that infuses their lyrics. This book is heavily illustrated throughout, emphasizing the essential role that visual material played in supporting the music and creating the lasting Pink Floyd phenomenon.
