Syd Barrett Giveaway
A chance to win the new Syd Barrett compilation and biography
Here at the Current we've got a real soft spot for the oddball eccentric characters in rock history, and Pink Floyd founder Syd Barrett is one of the all-time leaders of this pack. EMI has just put out a new compilation, An Introduction to Syd Barrett, that covers his output from the early Pink Floyd days through his bizarre and fascinating solo work. This year also saw the release of a much-praised new book about Barrett, Rob Chapman's A Very Irregular Head: The Life of Syd Barrett. We're giving away five copies of the new compilation--and a grand prize winner will also get a copy of the book! Check out The Current Music Blog, where you can read more about Barrett, share your thoughts on his strange brand of musical genuis and enter to win!
