Think Floyd 40th Anniversary Of The Wall

Think Floyd 
At The Playhouse Theatre, Weston-Super-Mare

Celebrating the 40th anniversary of Pink Floyd’s album The Wall, their alter ego in the shape of the band Think Floyd did a mind-blowing job of recreating the album plus playing tracks from all the other truly memorable back catalogue stuff from Meddle, Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here etc. Mind-blowing was the order of the night and I’d forgotten how crazy some of those lyrics were bringing back fond memories of gathering in someone’s back bedroom to crank up the speakers and ignore the howls of protest from deafened parents below!

To call Think Floyd a tribute band is somewhat an insult to their multi-talents, Lewis Hall on bass, Richard Morse on guitar, Steven Farmer on drums, and Kirk McLeod on keyboards, sound and look like the real thing, but they have a wealth of experience between them in putting together a great show of their own. There’s a nifty laser light show throughout that creates the edgy atmosphere surrounding The Wall, and all the background samples that were on the original Floyd albums are patched in to great effect.

Guesting with the band is singer Cherry Lee Mewis whose performance of the wordless piece on Great Gig in the Sky made famous by Clare Torry was fantastic, technically spot on and heart-wrenchingly sung. We loved Comfortably Numb, and Nobody Home with its great line “I got thirteen channels of **** on the TV to choose from” and now forty years on there are at least 460 to choose from but the comment and content remain the same!

Think Floyd are a great band and obviously love what they do; no standing on ceremony for them they were happy to engage with the fans in the foyer afterwards. It was an incredible show and we enjoyed it immensely.
