Today's Gig

On June 18 1967, The Pink Floyd appeared at the Radio London Motor Racing & Pop Festival (Brands Hatch Race Track, Kent). Did they actually perform that day? According to Glenn Povey's book 'Echoes: The Complete History of Pink Floyd', the band participated in a 'pop musicians' parade', chaffeured in open top cars around the race track alongside The Moody Blues, Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mick & Titch, David Garrick and Tristram, Seventh Earl of Cricklewood. The event was compered by DJs Mark Roman and Ed Stewart and featured an evening bikini fashion show, with musical performances by Chris Farlowe & the Thunderbirds, Episode Six and The Shell Shock.

"A lot of people want to make films and do photography and things, but I'm quite happy doing what I'm doing." Syd Barrett
