The Pink Floyd At The UFO Club

This is a very rare Pink Floyd footage, apparently from March 1967; it was included on a bootleg DVD, and lately has emerged also on the web (I found it on Soulseek). It is part of a German film called Die Jungen Nachtwandler (The Young Nightcrawler), a documentary about the British musical scene in the sixties. The director Edmund Wolf also appears on the clip for a short comment. Unfortunately the Floyd are shown for just some brief sequences, while they are performing an amazing improvisation, probably a crazy version of Interstellar Overdrive. The camera concentrates more on the audience, we can see enough details to be sure, doing a comparison with some old photos, that this is actually the legendary UFO club! The video makes you really breathe the atmosphere of those days, an exciting experience for the fans of the early Pink Floyd who have already dreamed several times to take a time machine and be there.
The only details that I found on the web about his clip are on this italian page. There you can also read the English translation of the movie's card and of Wolf's comment.

great vid,shame it's no longer.the music is realy out there,just what i like to hear and the commentary in the middle is also entertaining,the man saying something like 'these youngs achieve a state of togetherness in their confusion...'(my german is not so good) while looking rather confused himself :)

Su "Tonite..." c'è una sequenza dell' UFO club, ma diversa, questo è proprio un altro film...

Se poi leggi il mio post c'è spiegato tutto, compreso il fatto che il video l'ho trovato su Soulseek, non ho mai preteso di proporre del materiale "esclusivo"...

Ciao Mirco, non sono riuscito a scaricare il file, mi dai qualche indicazione? Sono comunque interessatissimo ad avere filmati e foto dell'UFO club (1967) e della festa mitica che si tenne al Roundhouse il 16 ottobre 1966 e sono disposto a pagarli.

C'è qualcuno che abbia qualcosa? Grazie di cuore

Quando sei sulla pagina di Rapidshare clicca su "free", digita il codice di tre lettere, o cifre, e apri il file. E' un documento di testo con il link ad un altra pagina di Rapidshare. Ripeti tutto da capo (stavolta devi anche aspettare un conto alla rovescia...) e scarica finalemte il video. Per dezipparlo ti ci vuole la password: http://musicforyoureyes.blogspot.com/

Hola, por favor, podrías subir de nuevo el archivo de Pink Floyd Live At The UFO porque expiró... (Hello, can you upload again the file of Pink Floy at the UFO because now it's expired).

Gracias. Thank You.
