Rock cover group does amazing reinvention of Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall”

October 14th, 2020

Any Pink Floyd fan will know the band’s biggest radio hit “Another Brick in the Wall.”

It has a great rhythm, excellent guitar play, and creative lyrics, and it’s easy to figure out why it’s so popular. It’s even easier to understand why so many artists did different covers of it over the past four decades!

However, when a tribute band does it, expectations go high—but the Pink Floyd Project didn’t disappoint at all.

Naturally, the project started as an homage to one of the greatest bands of all time.

A couple of Pink Floyd fans from Saarland, Germany got together in 2003 and formed a tribute band that’s been going strong ever since. The Pink Floyd Project is all about preserving the original vibe of Pink Floyd while giving you goosebumps with their three-hour live jams.

The group’s shows also rely on special effects.

There is always a huge screen above the stage where interesting footages of the original band is shown. The complete Dark Side Of The Moon album is part of the repertoire. Still, we’re not going to hear any songs from that album—the video tackles a whole different era of Pink Floyd, with an incredible rendition of the famous protest song.

If you’re interested in knowing more about the band, or their scheduled activities, be sure to check out their official website.

For those who don’t know, “Another Brick in the Wall” was ranked 384 on Rolling Stone’s list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Released in 1979, the song is a three-part composition that heavily protests against the strict schooling system and the way that society forces into social isolation.

We know that lyrics attracted a lot of controversies, but let’s focus on the phenomenal guitar solo and the instrumental sections that are simply breathtaking.

While we’re at it, you’ll realize that the tribute project did an amazing job of creating the Pink Floyd atmosphere.

The video’s been uploaded on Uwe Sicks’s official YouTube channel, and over 10 million people have seen it so far.

Uwe is the band’s guitarist and the one in charge of contact with media. The whole performance is part of the Pink Floyd Project’s 2016 Elevator Club Session in St. Wendel, Germany.

In all, it was a sensational way to revive one of the most influential rock bands of all time!

We can’t decide if it’s because of great vocals, but these guys recreated one of Pink Floyd’s greatest tracks in a very interesting way.

Everyone in the band is completely on point, the guitar sounds fantastic, and the drummer’s enthusiasm is simply contagious.

The best part is that everyone’s so much into it, you can feel that they love Pink Floyd.

Imagine how amazing it must feel to be in a position to remaster a song you love so much. And these fellows did it wonderfully.

Undoubtedly, the band is investing a lot in their work, and that’s very refreshing.

The only thing that could make it all better is if we were able to hear a bit more resonation of bass low notes. However, that’s a minor suggestion, it’s an overall pleasant experience that will have you hitting the replay button more than once.

Another thing we loved a lot is the vintage style graphics on the bass drum head!
