Info for Profiles (Remastered)
A collaboration with 10cc guitarist Rick Fenn, it was Mason's second album outside of Pink Floyd and was released in 1985 as "Mason + Fenn." This is a mainly instrumental album except for tracks "Lie For A Lie," which features vocals from Maggie Reilly and former bandmate David Gilmour and "Israel," sung by UFO keyboardist Danny Peyronel.
"There was a time when we were considering it as an entirely instrumental album, but we had 'Lie for a Lie', which we wanted to go on, so we felt it needed another song to balance it out." (Rick Fenn)
"I've certainly enjoyed working with Rick... I think it's useful and important to change the people you work with. You get so stuck in certain patterns. You know: Roger will do this and Dave will do that and... well, you can go and make the tea, Nick!" (Nick Mason)
"...this was the most extraordinary and joyous show, a reminder of what a peculiar and brilliant band Pink Floyd were... If you have the slightest interest in Pink Floyd, do not miss this group when they return to larger venues later this year. You won't even need acid to blow your mind." (Michael Hann, Financial Times)
"The sound was immense, electrifying, galvanising, mesmerising and still deeply strange, bending the formats of primal rock into all kind of weird and wonderful shapes. From the warped garage rock opening of Interstellar Overdrive, Astronomy Dominie and Lucifer Sam to the closing proto-shoegaze blitz of One of These Days and bent musical hall wackiness of Point Me at the Sky, it was a set of such startling intensity it seemed to mock the very notion of nostalgia. It was enough to make you wonder whether rock has progressed very far at all since the Sixties." (Neil McCormick, The Daily Telegraph)

By the '80s, Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason had teamed with former 10cc guitarist Rick Fenn to create music production company Bamboo Music.
Fenn was a former guitarist with British art rock group 10cc. He also logged time with instrumentalist Mike Oldfield — best known for Tubular Bells, which was adopted as the chilling theme to "The Exorcist" — Abba, Rick Wakeman, and the London Symphony Orchestra. Bamboo Music produced music jingles for corporate clients like HMV, a British chain of record stores.
The duo's only album was 1985's "Profiles," produced at Britannia Row studios. A collection of typical mid-'80s synth-pop, Profiles included "Lie for a Lie," sung by Floyd's David Gilmour, which showed up on a compilation called "Heard It on the Radio, Vol. 3," released Oct. 26, 1999.
The album reached to the 154th position in the United States, fairing only slightly better than Mason's 1981 "Fictitious Sports" album, which climbed to 170.
Mason and Fenn's other collaborations were a number of film soundtracks, including: "Life Could Be a Dream" (1986), "White of the Eye" (1987), "Body Contact" (1987) and "Tank Malling" (1989).
This album contains no booklet.
