The Madcap Laughs

The Madcap Laughs

Syd left Pink Floyd in April 1968 and 'The Madcap Laughs' has long been recognised as a lost classic.

Artist: Syd Barrett

Genre: Rock

Label: Parlophone

Release date:

Born in Cambridge in 1946, Roger Keith 'Syd' Barrett was the primary songwriter, guitarist and original lead vocalist in (the first incarnation of) Pink Floyd. He formed the band in the mid-1960s with drummer Nick Mason, bassist Roger Waters and keyboard-player Richard Wright. With their groundbreaking, semi-improvised sets at the legendary UFO club in London's Tottenham Court Road, they became the prime movers of British psychedelia.

Released in January 1970, it was recorded in two sessions, both at Abbey Road studios, and encompasses such classic as 'Terrapin,' 'Golden Hair' and so many more.
