Roger makes no bones about it.   Roger Floyd raids Pink Floyd's cabinet, steals and pilfers.  To say Roger Floyd is derivative would be a criminal understatement.   But hey, he had fun and its a personal project.  So if you can forgive and forget for a while and you need a quick Pink Floyd fix.  Just don't share needles. In Roger Floyd's own words...

 "What if Pink Floyd were still producing concept albums? This is the question that I asked myself years ago. I realize this is a question that would only be asked by a huge Pink Floyd fan but still I wondered.

I wondered if the younger generation heard the alarm clocks ringing in the beginning of “Time” whether they’d know what that sound was. Grandfather clocks and any other non-digital clock are all but extinct. Would an updated song have ringtones instead? Would that have the same impact?

I soon started writing songs related to the current digital world that we live in, things that are important to me and that I had strong opinions of. I then started taking in how this technology has changed our relationships. I watched friends and couples wedge a device between them so they always have an exit strategy from true communication. This gave me the added idea to write the story of a dissolving marriage that technology helped to destroy.

In short, this album is my attempt to a) Write a concept album about a deteriorating marriage due to technology and b) To sound as much like Pink Floyd as I could. This was recorded in my home-studio by myself with some vocal help from Diana Planche and Lyra Howell.

This isn’t a hip album, it isn’t catchy, fast or uplifting but it is expressive of my current mental state and I think approaches a topic that is becoming more and more an issue and possibly a problem."
