I don’t know anyone without a soft spot for Syd Barrett. Perhaps it’s the way you can hear him unravelling on the Madcap Laughs. Or that he gave up Pink Floyd to do DIY at his parents’ home. Definitely a way more interesting place to hang out. Though we’d never have been subjected to Another Brick in the Goddam Wall if he’d stayed. It’s his tribute concert tonight at the well old Union Chapel in Islington, London.
