GALACTIC 10/22/97 State College PA


 I first discovered Galactic when i was in New Orleans for jazz fest around 1997...matter of fact, it was the same tour..., it is legal to walk around w alcohol as long as its in a plastic cup..so when he first heard them we didnt have the 15 bucks a piece (worth it yea, but we couldnt afford it, driving from jersey and trying to stay 2 weeks of jazz fest, so we bought 2 six packs of Abita Turbo Dog (new orleans bock beer..really good stuff!) and hung out and rocked out on the streets...i kept peeking in and remember seeing the drummer laughing cause we were jammin to their music in the streets!! this was when they were a fairly small band...except they were obviously well known in their homtown of Nawliins'!!!!! Later i had the pleasure of hanging w Houseman up in Portland ME and doing a radio promo w him for our station in ME while scrambling to find him some heady nugs before the show for him.... Since then Theyrl DeClouet(pictured on the left) has had some throat problems...so he's no longer in the band. I have always been a big advocate of his, but ive actually heard people say they werent into his extremely soulful vocals...WHATEVER!! ANYWAY...This goes out to Houseman....the band hasnt been the same since he left..and thats all i have to say about this...and State College was a small venue...cause my boy Rich ran a Hookah Lounge/headshop a few blocks away called Tall Shiva....anybody who knows me, knows that im not into audience recordings, but this is an exception because its a MATRIX (i.e a SBD mixed w an audience mic and it more sbd than audience!!)
the sound is good, the performance is great..and as Houseman says...stay funky!

PINK FLOYD - behind the wall video documentary

Pink Floyd - Behind the Wall video documentary.

sorry people, this is in vcd (video cd)  or svcd (super video cd) which plays on computers,
and can be converted to dvd w any decent dvd converting software.
i couldnt...well didnt bother to convert it to an .avi file (the more popular video file after .mpg)
so im keeping it in vcd format...and hopefully someone will transfer it to avi
so more people can watch it on newer dvd players and such...many of the older dvd
players support .mpg/vcd  so check your dvd player (look for an .mpg sticker in the front)
..it may play it.
its still a great documentary about the album and movie THE WALL.
if you like pink floyd, this is well worth the free download!!!

any questions, comments etc. email me at swingkid73@hotmail.com

is some very good reading on the album
and turmoil the band was going thru.

IF anybody is having problems watching it....well most media players on computers will
play, including Windows Media Player (update it if it doesnt!)
Nero, and any media software worth its weight in the plastic and aluminum that is a CD or DVD!

again, if you have problems, email me and let me know what o.s. (operating system) you are running
and i will find you a free player that can play it.
