A Saucerful Of Secrets Lyrics

A Saucerful Of Secrets
  • Roger Waters described this as being about war or a battle. (where Something Else and Syncopated Pandemonium are the actual battle, Storm Signals the aftermath and Celestial Voices the mourning of the dead).
  • On some pressings of Ummagumma this was broken down into 4 sections. These sections are called:
    a. "Something Else" - 00:00 (ominous opening noises)
    b. "Syncopated Pandemonium" - 03:57 (with the drum tape-loop and such)
    c. "Storm Signal" - 07:16 (organ-based section)
    d. "Celestial Voices" - 10:14 (closing spacey part with the voices) (thanks, Phil - Liverpool, England, for above 2)
  • Dave Gilmour in Guitar World February 1993: "'A Saucerful of Secrets' was a very important track; it gave us our direction forward. If you take 'A Saucerful of Secrets,' 'Atom Heart Mother' and 'Echoes' - all lead logically to Dark Side of the Moon. 'A Saucerful' was inspired when Roger and Nick [Mason, Pink Floyd's drummer] began drawing weird shapes on a piece of paper. We then composed music based on the structure of the drawing."
  • Guitar World asked Gilmour about the techniques he used to get such unusual guitar tones back then. He replied: "Well, on the middle section of 'A Saucerful of Secrets,' most of the time the guitar was lying on the studio floor. And I unscrewed one of the legs from a mic stand... You know how mic stands have three steel legs about a foot long? I just whizzed one of those up and down the neck - not very subtly. Another technique, which came a bit later, is to take a small piece of steel and rub it from side to side across the strings. You just move it and stop it in places that sound good. It's something like an E-bow."
