Did you know that while David Gilmour was making his Remember That Nights DVD, Roger Waters was recording in the neighbouring studio? They met, but are said to have been rather cold to each other. Did you know that they used 420 cardboard bricks for The Wall Tour stage? Did you know that Ummagumma is slang for intercourse?
 Did you know...

note:

David Gilmour and Nick Mason to the scene as Pink Floyd with this album. Rick Wrighttook part in the recording as an external collaborator and joined in during the latter sessions. part of the band again when he played the keyboards on the Pink Floyd world tour that succeeded the album.
The album was criticised by Waters'fans. Roger officially left the band in 1986 and expected the band to dissolve immediately. There were lawsuits for the right to use the name Pink Floyd, and after numerous appeals this right was granted to Gilmour, Mason and Wright. Waters got the money for using the inflatable pig he invented at live shows.
Many external collaborators took part in the recording of the album, which somewhat lacked Waters' outstanding ability as a lyricist (Gilmour considers himself a bad lyricist). A Momentary Lapse Of Reason shows a different style, a change from the Pink Floyd sound from the sixties and seventies. Its overall atmosphere is largely different from The Wall or The Final Cut, not to mention the older releases.
Fun fact: the beds are all real and there was about 800 of them...
