"Mudmen" is an instrumental track from Pink Floyd's 1972 album Obscured by Clouds.[1][2]


The tune is similar to that of the third track on the same album ("Burning Bridges") but develops the themes and leitmotifs of the tune further, with the time signature changed from 6/8 to 4/4. It is the only piece credited to Wright/Gilmour until "Cluster One" from their 1994 album The Division Bell.
