Television Personalities - "I Know Where Syd Barrett Lives" (mp3)
    #3621629 - 01/13/05 02:14 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Here's what one website says about this song...

Quote:

We shan?t forget their most (in)famous tune of all, ?I Know Where Syd Barrett Lives,? the musical equivalent of a Keebler cookie--baked by elves. This was forgiveable, given the subject matter; it does indeed sound rather like one of Syd?s whimsical little songs; Syd?s family were touched when the band gave them a free copy. (I wonder if they ever played it on Top Of The Pops? They must?ve. And Syd was known to watch it every week. The last thing he needed to see was a band with a song about that!) They were less touched when TV Personalities opened for David Gilmour a few years later; their lead singer took it upon himself to share the reclusive Mr. Barrett?s home address with a crowd of thousands (and who knew how many bootleggers among them?) as stage patter prior to an unscheduled rendition of ?See Emily Play.? (Assholes. We believed you knew where he lived, you didn?t have to prove it. Even if you happen to love ?em for their very wretchedness, if you claim someone as a ?hero,? you avoid doing anything to make their life that much less bearable.) To his credit, Gilmour threw them off the tour.




:nonono: Anyway, it's still an interesting song, since it's about Syd.
