Israeli Band Wins Arnold Layne Song Contest

The Israeli band Rockfour has won first prize at an international music competition that was judged by David Gilmour and David Bowie. The contest called for various groups to record a cover version of the song Arnold Layne, Pink Floyd's first single composed by the late Syd Barrett, released in 1967. The prize was a day of recording at the world-famous Abbey Road Studios in London.

Members of the group, Baruch Ben Yitzhak, Isser Tennenbaum and Mark Lazar, are currently on a tour in the US which includes Philadelphia, New York and Texas. Overseas performances are expected to end on March 16th, and at the beginning of April the group is expected to release its new album "Memories of the Never Happened."
