Did you know that during one of the concerts Roger Waters told a drunk fan to come closer to the stage and then spat on him? Did you know that the band never played In The Flesh? live? At The Wall concerts it was always played by a substitute band and no other Pink Floyd gigs included the song. Did you know that Several Species Of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together In A Cave And Grooving With A Pict (song released on the Ummagumma album) is the longest name for a rock song ever?

Considered not quite the top musically, but lyrically very strong, anti-war and humanist oriented. There is no doubt that the album features songs that didn't fit in The Wall. Originally, it was meant to be an OST to The Wall film, but then the band decided to make it an album.
There is an inscription on the cover which reads: requiem for post war dream by Roger Waters, performed by Pink Floyd. Right under that: Pink Floyd are: Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason. Rick Wright did not take part in the recording and was not a member of the band at the time. Nick Mason in his own words just “drummed what he had to.” Only Gilmour was permitted to take part by recording a few short solos.
The last song did not even feature Mason, but Andy Newmark, on the drums. The recording of The Final Cut meant the definitive dissolution of Pink Floyd.
