Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason spent 2018 and 2019 on the road with his new backing band, Saucerful of Secrets, a project which saw him link up with Spandau Ballet’s Gary Kemp as well as Dom Beken, Lee Harris and Guy Pratt and know you can watch them perform ‘See Emily Play’ at London’s Roundhouse.
The band solely play Pink Floyd material from the pre-Dark Side Of The Moon era and were even joined live on stage by Roger Waters to perform in April last year at New York’s Beacon Theater to perform ‘Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun’.
Although Mason is having a blast with his new outfit, he has got no plans to get in the studio to cook up any new material with them. In September however, their Live at the Roundhouse album will be released which is comprised of 22 songs recorded over two gigs in May 2019 at the historic venue in Camden Town.
“There’s the live album, and I don’t think we’ll do too many of those. We don’t have a long-term vision of how this should work – we knew there’d be at least a year of doing exactly what we’re doing now, augmenting the set list with new material, but there’s no plan that we’re going to invade other catalogues or start writing new material or whatever,” Mason recently told Goldmine Magazine.
“But having said that, we’re open to suggestions. If you told me that I’d be hammering around the country playing old Pink Floyd stuff 10 years ago, I’d have thought I’d gone mad,” he added.
Check out their performance of ‘See Emily Play‘ and their 2021 tour dates below.
