We are pleased to offer this vintage Pink Floyd collectible in our auction! This “Comic” tour book was produced in 1975 and distributed by their album cover designer, Storm Thorgerson’s company: Hipgnosis. 

 

15 pages of a “Super, All-Action Official Music Programme for Boys and Girls,” which includes several short comic stories: Roger (“Rog”) Waters is an “ace goal-scorer” for the “Grantchester Rovers” football club. Floyd drummer Nick Mason becomes “Captain Mason, R.N.,” a “courageous and smart” WWII naval hero, David Gilmour becomes a stunt cyclist “Dave Derring”, and keyboardist Richard Wright, transforms into high roller “Rich Right”. 

 

This comic also includes the lyrics to three new songs the band was playing live towards the end of the Dark Side of the Moon Tour and the early 1975 shows of the Wish You Were Here Tour: “Shine on You Crazy Diamond,” and two unreleased tracks, “Raving and Drooling” and “You Gotta Be Crazy” - which later turned into “Sheep” and “Dogs,” and appearing on the Animals album 2 years later.
