Bonus Fascinating Fact:

Pink Floyd’s tour in support of Animals was entitled The In The Flesh Tour, and the final show of it was here in Montreal at Olympic Stadium on July 6th, 1977. 78,000 fans screamed, yelled, and set off fireworks, much to Roger Waters’ dismay. In sheer frustration, Waters ended up spitting at a fan.

Years later, he recalled the incident for an exhibit (based on Pink...

Fascinating Fact #6:

When Animals was first released, music reviewers weren’t quite sure what to make of it. Its two predecessors were both smooth and even jazzy sounding, whereas Animals was filled with fury and aggression.

The review in Rolling Stone magazine was especially unfavourable: "The 1977 Floyd has turned bitter and morose. They complain about the duplicity of human behavior (and...

Fascinating Fact #5:

Algie, the pig, became a concert staple. Roger Waters used a replica of it when he performed at the 2008 Coachella festival, where it once again broke free and floated away.

Fascinating Fact #3:

The cover art of Animals features an image of London’s Battersea Power Station, the largest brick building in Europe, which was built in 1935 to bring electricity to the south bank of the river Thames. The building’s Art Deco flourishes has made it a cultural icon, and it has appeared repeatedly in pop culture: in The Beatles' film Help!, in the booklet artwork for The...

Fascinating Fact #2:

Animals is a concept album, loosely based on George Orwell’s political fable “Animal Farm”. The three main songs – “Dogs,” “Pigs (Three Different Ones)” and “Sheep” — each take on a different societal or economic institution. “Dogs” is a critique of the corporate world and its ravenous businessmen.

“Pigs (Three Different Ones)” is an assault on figures of British...

Fascinating Fact #1:

The genesis of the Animals album goes back to the writing rehearsals for its predecessor, the Wish You Were Here album. Working at Unit rehearsal studios, near London’s King’s Cross, Pink Floyd had created two songs that were ultimately left off that 1975 album: “Raving And Drooling” and “You've Got To Be Crazy.”
The success of both Wish You Were Here and Dark Side of the...
