I thought you’d might like to see this – Airbag performing Embryo at the Ino-Rock prog festival in Inowroclaw, Poland saturday September 11. Not the best quality but enough to get an idea of how it sounded.
As you all know, Airbag is also known as The Pink Floyd Experience (or were) but we rarely do Floyd shows anymore and thought it would be great fun to do a Floyd cover. Embryo has always been one of our favourites and the fact that it’s never released, at least not the live version Floyd used to play in the early 70s, makes it much more special (and not everyone recognises the song either).
I’m using the Fender CIJ ’65 reissue now with the pickguard assembly from the maple Strat (Fender CS 69 neck and mid and Duncan SSL5 bridge pickups) into a Mesa/Boogie Rectifier 100w head with a Marshall 4×12″ speaker cab. Not the ideal combo but we didn’t bring our own backline. The Mesa always performes well anyway. Effectwise for Embryo I’m using a BK Tube Driver and a T-Rex Replica (310ms) adding a reversed wah wah for the seagull screams. David actually did this effect on some early performances of the song.
