One of the most interesting pieces Roger ever before produced, Several species has been repeatedly underrated. While hardly melodic or even musical, the item embodies the experimental era the the Floyd and other together bands v its imaginative provides of "animal" sound impacts (most the them excellent by Roger, then increased or slowed down) to produce a multi-layered chorus, functioning really effectively together a rate track.The pet section, lasting about three and a fifty percent minutes, supposedly consists of hidden messages which space revealed when the record is play at different speeds, such together 16, 45 and also 78 rpm.The "Pict" section, lasting only a minute, is also fascinating. At first listen, Roger"s rant provides no feeling whatsoever. However, repeated listening expose a discernible monologue, distorted through a heavily impacted satiric scots accent and some nonsensical words and also phrases. Some resources have claimed that this monologue was improvised live in the studio, but it seems a little more coherent and linear than something that might be consisted of off the peak of one"s head. Based upon the perhaps incorrect presumption that the "lyric" to be written and also actually way something, an analysis of its content follows.First, a historic note: the Picts were written of violent, raiding tribes of both Celtic and also pre-Celtic individuals who organized power in ancient Caledonia (now Scotland), many notably during the time duration c.300-843 AD. After ~ this point, they came to be united with (and in most minds, associated to) the Scots. This "poem" if girlfriend will, which almost seems come parody the style of the famous Scots poet Robert Burns (1759-1796), speak an interesting story. The transcription over converts the heavily accented words to traditional English order in most cases (such as "middin stain" come "mountainside" and also "doon" to "down"). The "Pict" who tells the story beginning by introduce to the truth that his family resolved down in this (apparently) coastal area, more than likely to fish for mackerel (a usual industry in Scotland). Yet now, conflict and fighting has actually disrupted his life, all the an ext so because he is a coward, and has just fled native the battle that his brethren partake in, ago to his home. That slaps self for his cowardice, autumn his knife in the shade, and weeps. That is afraid of the hefty blade bring about him to loss down in fight — a failure no-one survives ("never back to raise"). However then the gathers his courage, picking up what is more than likely his father"s Claymore ("your Claymore") and also rejoins the fray through a fight cry the Mary! (probably Mary, Queen that Scots, or else the Virgin Mary, a recommendation to his Catholicism). That sees his girlfriend falling dead around the feet of a an especially ferocious enemy, that screams his defiance. Ours young scots grabs because that his blade, however his worst fears are realised — it is too heavy, and the enemy"s Claymore "cut and thrust" and he falls at the enemy"s feet. The opponent cries the he will certainly not fall and live, and the young scotsman meets his ignoble end, leaving just the wind to echo his fight cry ("and the wind cry Mary").The poem seems to suggest that it is Scotsman versus Scotsman, a case that walk occur throughout the reign of mary Queen of scotsman in the mid-1500s, together the Catholic pendant of the Queen warred versus the protestant opposition. The above, is however, merely one translate of a piece which could mean any variety of things — or nothing.What is specifically humourous about this ar of Several types is the sophisticated poetic set-up offered in bespeak to finish with a joking recommendation to a lyric currently made famous by Jimi Hendrix a pair of years before ("the wind cry Mary") — and also have it actually make sense. Someone that sounds a little like Dave Gilmour claims "Thank you" in a regular accent in ~ the finish — possibly Dave was in the record booth? Unknown.It was previously thought by part that Scots speculative musician Ron Geesin, that Roger was an excellent friends v at the time, walk the vocals for this piece.Ron Geesin: "People constantly used to ask me if i did that. Ns was law a many John Peel radio programmes at the time, law pieces also further out. My selection of Scottish ranting may have actually jogged other in Roger, yet it was probably coincidental. We both had actually Scottish mothers and also English fathers, together it happens."However, the adhering to year Ron would record a soundtrack v Roger, as well as collaborating v Pink Floyd on Atom love Mother. In addition, that would later record a parody the Several types called "To roger Waters, where You Are."Several types was re-released in 1983 on the us compilation album Works.
