CA03 Pink Floyd – The Wall | Part 1

Listen:Apple PodcastsSpotifySoundcloud

It’s Steve’s pick for a classic album this week, and he has chosen to finally dip into an album that we here at Riot Act have been threatening to do since the very inception of the podcast; Pink Floyd’s 1979 prog-rock opera The Wall.

In the first part of our mammoth 2 part look at the project, we are joined by Haggard Cat man, friend of the podcast and Pink Floyd megafan Matt Reynolds. The boys discuss their various feelings about the band, their previous work, the lead up to the record (including blow by blow accounts of the Roger Walters meltdown that inspired the album), the various problems that the band encountered during the writing and recording process and the result of it all. One of the most famous, iconic and divisive albums ever created.
