A Floydian day

Standard

After spending all day on a rainy Sunday updating my memory, listening to Pink Floyd albums which I’ve never played for about 40 years; I went to see the tribute band UK Pink Floyd Experience at Whitley Bay Playhouse.  As musicians, they were of a high calibre (especially the lead guitarist) which was equalled by the their light show. I was glad that they announced they would be performing not only the whole of ‘Dark side of the Moon, but at least one song from every album. They started with ‘Astronomy Domine’ then straight into ‘Arnold Layne’, two of my favourites, so I was immediately on their side. After the interval they did a stunning version of ‘Shine on you crazy diamond’, which went beyond the high standard set by the other songs.  This was followed by ‘Dark Side’ continuous until its end. My only quibble would be the vocals of the Bass guitarist, they need to be a bit stronger for those songs that he performs. Nevertheless, it was an excellent concert.uk-pink-floyd poster

About George Hutton Hunter Contemporary Artist

Contemporary artist (paintings, drawings,sculpture, music, writer) living in Newcastle upon Tyne. I’m a self taught artist born in Ryton, but now live and works in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. I’ve taken part in joint exhibitions in Paris, New York, London, Hong Kong and Newcastle. My view of any kind of art is that it should leave an impression, whether it is good or bad is up to the individual. I think my style of painting and drawing is about colours and shapes and how they interact. I mainly paint acrylics or with spray paint, occasionally oils, inks, watercolours, mixed media plus glass paint on sheet glass. I also draw using oil and chalk pastels plus watercolour pencils. I use a variety of objects to paint such as blocks of wood, strips of paper, my fingers and of course, brushes. I also produce small sculptural artworks, write prose and short stories, plus create electronic music on Sound Cloud under the name 'diTempli'. I am also an amateur musician playing mainly the Charango, Ukulele and Guitar. My artwork can be found on a number of websites around the world but can also be purchased also from myself at www.ghunterartist.co.uk.
