Syd Barrett Solo albums
    #4472865 - 07/30/05 04:59 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Anybody into his solo work at one time or another? I got into his stuff a few years back. Very somber but he was an incredible songwriter at times. I'm sure his mental condition caused much of the delirium to come out in his writing. Anyone share my appreciation for good ol' Syd?

Not something that you can listen to often, infact I haven't really listened to it much in a few years but his lyrics can be amazing.

i've got them all, and dig them very much. something about the fact that the man is batshit crazy and yet still writes amazing psychedelic pop medleys just floats my boat.

I like that one song "Golden Hair" - lyrics taken from James Joyce - that's about it though.

Yeah, not discrediting his Floyd work by any means, Jugband Blues is probably my all-time Syd/Floyd song, it's just well, with those solo efforts & it's kinda shitty to say, but you know that all of that, all those feelings that he was trying to convey while losing his mind, it's just utterly beautiful music. I've made friends listen to it, Floyd fans mind you, but they couldn't dig it. Understandable, it's a bit rough at it's best and pretty maniacal at it's worst but I will say this, it's the only music that I have ever listened to (not tied to a memory or anything) that could make me cry because of how raw & real it is. Those albums are the rawest form of human emotion in music that I have ever heard. Whenever I am down & out they always warrant a listen.

Octopus on Madcap

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!

:rasta:,
