Pink Floyd's 1971 album " Meddle". Years later, the song appeared in the film version of Tom Stoppard's play "Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead". The song is named after the dog who performed howling 'vocals' on the album version of the track.
The song was written by
Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason, and Richard Wright.
"": "Mademoiselle Nobs"
Film director Adrian Maben captured Pink Floyd's only live performance of "Seamus" (in a greatly altered form, excluding lyrics, and retitled "Mademoiselle Nobs") in his film "Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii". To re-create the song, David Gilmour played harmonica instead of singing and (unusually) Roger Waters played one of Gilmour's
Stratocasterguitars. A female Russian Wolfhoundnamed Nobs, which belonged to Madonna Bouglione (the daughter of circus director Joseph Bouglione), was brought to the studio to provide howling accompaniment as Seamus did in the album version. There is also an audible bass guitarin this recording, likely overdubbed during mixing of the film soundtrack at another studio, but, as with many Pink Floyd songs, it is difficult to tell who is playing it.
