Die Floyd-Tributeband ECHOES glänzt auf neuem Livemitschnitt mit hochkarätigen Gästen

The sense and nonsense of tribute bands has already been discussed several times in this magazine. And then Echoes released "Barefoot To The Moon" with acoustic versions of Pink Floyd classics that took any discussion to absurdity. His originality and joy of playing, his charm and wit make this live recording a masterpiece. Now the most successful German Floyd tribute presents its second DVD/Blu-ray/2CD: "Live From The Dark Side", recorded last year at the "Rock Of Ages" festival.

"Like a power plant without electronics" - With "Barefoot To The Moon" ECHOES pull the plug at Pink Floyd

eclipsed: You are celebrating your twentieth anniversary at the moment and are travelling electrically with Pink Floyd music for a correspondingly long time. With "Barefoot To The Moon - An Acoustic Tribute To Pink Floyd" you now succeed in staging the bombastic classics of the art rockers in strictly acoustic garb in a completely new way and thus bring out unknown facets. How did this concept come about?

Steffen Maier: Yes, at first you think Pink Floyd acoustically, it's like a power station without electronics. The first time I had this thought was when I read that Nick Mason would have liked to do something like this with Pink Floyd. And if that's what Nick Mason thinks, maybe it's really possible.

eclipsed: David Gilmour actually gave an acoustic show at the London Meltdown Festival in the Royal Festival Hall in June 2001, which was also released on DVD as "David Gilmour In Concert".
