  • Pink Floyd "The Forgotten Concerts" Part 2 "The Other Pink Floyd" Roger Waters Live at the Brendan Byrne Arena (Meadowlands) 1987-11-04 master AUD tape featuring Paul Carrack and Andy Fairweather-Low, with DJ Jim Ladd Well, a few weeks later, we were back at the Meadowlands again, for the "Nyah Nyah!" concert. "Nyah Nyah" is an American gesture: point the ball of your thumb against your nose and rotate your palm with the fingers up. That, and saying the above while spitting is considered fun by children and intoxicated adults who wish to convey insults while indicating that someone else's superiority is, in fact, pure crap. Perhaps, if you aren't from our fair country, and are from some other fair country of your own, you use this or a like-minded gesture or phrase - to catch up with the other person, that is. Even if it's only in your own mind... This is one weird concert. The "Billy" concept seemed funny in 1987. Now, it's just strange. Never mind that the startling arrangements of the classic Pink Floyd material are presented in a fashion that Messrs. Gilmour and Co. could never dream of, and that Mr. Water's vocals remind me of, say, later day Syd Barrett in concert - the new stuff is couched in sort of a "Wargames" (the movie, that is) meets Gerald Scarfe story line about the world ending by means of someone or something named Billy, who is constantly interrupting poor Jim Ladd's radio show. Unlike the Meadowlands Floyd concert previously posted, this time the hall was more than half empty. The first few minutes finds us walking around, trying to find better seats. This is why the recording constantly adjusts itself, before settling down to a reasonably good audience rendition. In fact, it sounds a bit better than the previous post, mostly due to the lack of people in the audience. No wonder no one has this show on their trade-list... there weren't that many people there in the first place. You will notice that the first track after the break is entitled "Mr. Waters Takes Questions". The stage allowed for an announcer's booth, where RW parked himself for a few minutes for a question and answer session. Were the people asking the questions shills? Hmmm. They certainly were chosen in advance. I never did figure out how. One guy who did ask Mr. Waters was wearing a pink felt pig hat, complete with a tail. "Mr. Pig". I could see him from my seat. After the concert, he passed me by, smoking a cigarette, with a look of someone who had just contemplated God. (sigh) By the way, there's an off-the-cuff "Set the Controls" which they did just to be cheeky.
