HistoryEdit

The conception for the album came during a concert when a drop of water fell on Dirk McQuickly's and he assumed that somebody spit on him (although, in actually, the roof was leaking). McQuickly went on to stop the music and rant to the crowd for a good ten minutes before the previously 4 minute concert continued. On the way back to the hotel, McQuickly gripped to the driver about how much he longed to build a floor between him and the audience, since the band could never afford venues with floors. The inspired him to write The Floor. He also thought of another album, Open Between 2:53 - 3:52 and it was supposed to take place in real time, but he then realised that it would be a long album, so he scrapped the idea.

ReceptionEdit

The album recieved positive reviews. Music That Does Not Suck Magazine claimed "This album is Punk Floyd's best work and is far better than Comatose" and "It's a shame that not too many people care about carpentry."

TouringEdit

McQuickly came up with an idea after the album's release: To have a tour where a floor was built in the first half and then destroyed by the end of the 5th song. His idea was vetoed because they were afraid that would fall and get injured. Or possibly because somebody would shout "All things fall down!" Despite that, a group of peole did preform a similar concert in front of the Berlin Wall.

Possible FilmEdit

After the album's release, there was talk about a possible film entitled Punk Floyd-The Floor. Seeing as how the album is only 10 minutes, one can only wonder how much filler somebody can put into a film.

In 1982, however, an unnamed writer/director had announced that he was writing a script based around the songs. He is still working on that script.

Dirk McQuicklys: The Floor Edit

In September 2015, Dirk Directed, Produced, Wrote, provided music and catering for Dirk McQuickly: The Floor, a live concert movie where Dirk McQuickly performs The Floor album in its entirety.
