Reviewed by Gary Renowden from Birmingham

This is on my wish list of prints I would like to own!

The sky looks sullen above the 1920's Battersea Power Station. Is that a flying pig, one asks?

Only Pink Floyd and only R & R.

I hope my wish comes true.

November 2009

Produced by Storm Thorgerson and Pete Christopherson (Hipgnosis)

Storm Thorgerson commentates: David Gilmours glorious guitar lines come to temporarily dominate the Floyd horizon. On that horizon is an Orwell inspired allegory and somewhere over the horizon flies a giant inflatable pig. The inflatable pig was a dirigible about 30ft long and 20ft high, and it was brought to the site, this wonderful 20s building Battersea Power Station, near the River Thames upstream from the Houses Of Parliament. On day one the pig remained on the ground, neither inflated nor elevated. The initially reluctant pig made a rash break for freedom in the blue yonder on day two. Up from the power station and into the flight path to Heathrow Airport went the animal, en route for the media headlines and home in time for tea. Retrieved from a Kent farm and its bacon saved, the pig again faced the photographers and a film crew, now with a helicopter ready. The finished artwork comprised a real pig (day three) in position with a real background (from day one).

Storm Thorgerson says Despite this minor comping of pictures, this minor sleight of hand, the principle of doing it for real served us well. Though at times the whole event had a ludicrous and spinal tap feeling to it, especially when faced with newspaper headlines blaring out that airline pilots were seeing flying pigs (had the world gone mad?), it was only by staging it for real that the essential dynamics of the building and the beauty of the dramatic sky were captured a majestic background for a majestic pig. How splendid, how absurd, how RocknRoll.
