    Terrapin - Syd Barrett


    From The Madcap Laughs

  • desc




    THIS IS MY VERY FIRST CRACK AT MOVIE EDITING. I have taken all of the bits from the Hans Keller interview that consist of just Syd Barrett's (very lovely) moments. I put together this short sweet bit and I dedicate it to that beautiful, late, great PIPER, MADCAP, MUSICIAN, ARTIST, POET, DREAMER, LOVER & TRULY BEAUTIFUL SOUL. As of this writing, it has been 6 years since you've emerged from your chrysalis as a butterfly into the next world. May you finally be free from your foibles and be your former Happy Piper self again. I know not everyone believes in that sort of thing but I respect their right to not believe. That said, I put together this short little bit of footage of the Sydster. SHINE ON!

    Syd Barrett - Waving My Arms In The Air/ I Never Lied To You


    I've compiled some of my favorite film clips of Syd to accompany this great track from the Barrett album (which I think, should have been considered as a single).

    Great early live TV performance of 'Astronomy Domine' broadcast on BBC Look of the Week May 14th 1967, just a few months before Syd's tragic mind blowout from acid.

    Syd Barrett - Effervescing Elephant


    An Effervescing Elephant
    with tiny eyes and great big trunk
    once whispered to the tiny ear
    the ear of one inferior
    that by next June he'd die, oh yeah!
    because the tiger would roam.
    The little one said: Oh my goodness I must stay at home!
    and every time I hear a growl
    I'll know the tiger's on the prowl
    and I'll be really safe, you know
    the elephant he told me so.
    Everyone was nervy, oh yeah!
    and the message was spread
    to zebra, mongoose, and the dirty hippopotamus
    who wallowed in the mud and chewed
    his spicy hippo-plankton food
    and tended to ignore the word
    preferring to survey a herd
    of stupid water bison, oh yeah!
    And all the jungle took fright,
    and ran around for all the day and the night
    but all in vain, because, you see,
    the tiger came and said: Who me?!
    You know, I wouldn't hurt not one of you.
    I'd much prefer something to chew
    and you're all to scant. oh yeah!
    He ate the Elephant

    A short clip from a 1989 Pink Floyd documentary. A snippet of Syd Barrett from 'The Look Of The Week' in 1967 followed by Dave Gilmour discussing Barrett's breakdown and his relevance to the later Floyd.

    Apologies for the poor picture quality - the source was a Real file of a fifteenth generation bootleg.

    Syd Barrett - Gigolo Aunt


    Syd Barrett Gigolo Aunt album Barrett 1970

    Grooving around in a trench coat
    with the satin entrail
    Seems to be all around in tin and lead pail, we pale
    Jiving on down to the beach
    to see the blue and the gray
    seems to be all and it's rosy-it's a beautiful day!

    Will you please keep on the track
    'cause I almost want you back
    'cause I know what you are
    you are a gigolo aunt, you're a gigolo aunt!
    Yes I know what you are
    you are a gigolo aunt, you're a gigolo aunt!

    Heading down with the light, the dust in your way
    she was angrier than, than her watershell male
    life to this love to me - heading me down to me
    thunderbird shale
    seems to be all and it's rosy - it's a beautiful day!
    will you please keep on the track
    'cause I almost want you back
    'cause I know what you are
    you are a gigolo aunt

    Grooving on down in a knapsack superlative day
    some wish she move and just as she can move jiving away
    she made the scene should have been-superlative day
    everything's all and it's rosy, it's a beautiful day
    will you please keep on the track
    'cause I almost want you back
    'cause I know what you are
    you are a gigolo aunt...

    Syd Barrett-Here I Go


    This is a story 'bout a girl that I knew
    she didn't like my songs
    and that made me feel blue
    she said: a big band is far better than you...

    She don't rock 'n' roll, she don't like it
    she don't do the stroll, well she don't do it right
    well, ev'rythings wrong and my patience was gone
    when I woke one morning
    and remembered this song
    O-oh-oh, kinda catchy, I hoped
    that she would talk to me now
    and even allow me to hold her hand
    and forget that old band.

    I strolled around to her pad
    her light was off and that's bad
    her sister said that my girl was gone
    But come inside, boy, and play, play, play me a song!
    I said Yeah! Here I go
    She's kinda cute; don't you know,
    That after a while of seeing her smile
    I knew we could make it, make it in style!?

    So now I've got all I need
    She and I are in love, we've agreed
    she likes this song and my others too
    so now you see my world is...
    because of this tune!
    What a boon this tune!
    I tell you soon
    We'll be lying in bed, happily wed,
    and I won't think of that girl
    or what she said...

    Syd Barrett - Opel


    On a distant shore, miles from land
    stands the ebony totem in ebony sand
    a dream in a mist of gray...
    on a far distant shore...
    The pebble that stood alone
    and driftwood lies half buried
    warm shallow waters sweep shells
    so the cockles shine...

    A bare winding carcass, stark
    shimmers as flies scoop up meat, an empty way...
    dry tears...
    crisp flax squeaks tall reeds
    make a circle of gray in a summer way, around man
    stood on ground...

    I'm trying
    I'm trying to find you!
    To find you
    I'm living, I'm giving,
    To find you, To find you,
    I'm living, I'm living,
    I'm trying, I'm giving

    Syd Barrett extravaganza


    The music is taken from the end of octopus' as played live on June 6, 1970 by Syd Barrett on guitar, David Gilmour on bass and Jerry Shirley on drums. It has been equalized, compressed and mixed. The footage has been edited from SHOT the Psycho-Spiritual Mantra of Rock (2016).
    I have uploaded other Syd-related material on youtube, which you may want to check out, if you liked this vidéo (tag: Jay Jeer or La Marque Jaune).

    Syd Barrett - Octopus


    Trip to heave and ho, up down, to and fro'
    you have no word
    trip, trip to a dream dragon
    hide your wings in a ghost tower
    sails crackiling at ev'ry plate we break
    cracked by scattered needles
    little minute gong
    coughs and clears his throat
    madam you see before you stand
    hey ho, never be still
    the old original favourite gran
    grasshoppers green herbarian band
    and the tune they play in us confide...
    so trip to heave and ho, up down, to and fro'
    you have no word
    Please leave us here
    close our eyes to the octopus ride!
    Isn't it good to be lost in the wood
    isn't it bad so quiet there, in the wood
    twenty even less to me than I thought
    with a honey plough of yellow prickly seeds
    clover honey pots and mystic shining feed...
    well, the madcap laughed at the man on the border
    hey ho, huff the talbot
    Cheetah he cried shouted kangaroo
    so through their tree they cried
    Please leave us here
    close our eyes to the octopus ride!
    The madcap laughed at the man on the border
    hey ho, huff the talbot
    the winds they blew and the leaves did wag
    and they'll never put me in their bag
    the seas will reach and always see
    so high you go, so low you creep
    the winds it blows in tropical heat
    the drones they throng on mossy seats
    the squeaking door will always creep
    two up, two down we'll never meet
    so merrily trip for good my side
    Please leave us here
    close our eyes to the octopus ride
