This newly-colorised footage of Pink Floyd on American Bandstand in 1967 is a trip

    In November 1967, Pink Floyd toured America for the first time, to promote their debut album The Piper at the Gates of Dawn. In the first week of their visit, the English band were invited to play ABC Television’s prestigious American Bandstand show, hosted by Dick Clark, to mime to their recently-recorded third single Apples And Oranges. Now a Swedish artist known as Artist On The Border has painstakingly colorised the archive performance, frame-by-frame, bringing new life to the group’s mannered performance.

    “I started the project in February 2021,” he reveals. “It ended on the 30th of December 2021. I’m not doing this again, like this.”
