This Pink Floyd UFO poster was sold at auction in March. Here is that image and the Auction House's Description. BEAUTIFUL PIECE!


Pink Floyd UFO London Michael English 1967 XL Silkscreen

Original 1st printing 39" x 29" hand-pulled silkscreen concert poster for Pink Floyd (featuring Syd Barrett) on 2/27/1967 and 3/10/1967 (2/27 show was with the Brothers Grimm) and Soft Machine on 3/3/1967, all at the U.F.O. Club in London, England. Design by Michael English (pre-Hapshash & the Coloured Coat), medium-thick flat index stock silkscreen poster is in good to very good (B to B/B+) condition; a series of small creases/bends and tiny nips/tears scattered around the outer edges, a light to moderate degree of vertical/diagonal creasing along the left side of the image (a few soft folds), scattered small handling dings and a 4" diagonal bend in the bottom right corner (below Michael English's name), otherwise fine. This example presents itself VERY well, considering the age, size and fragility of the silkscreen ink... it will take a whole wall to display, but this is probably one of the most impressive-looking early Floyd posters from the "Piper at the Gates of Dawn"/Syd Barrett era. KILLER '60's "pop" graphic!

Syd Barrett - the 1960s Cambridge Music Scene

Check this out! Warren Dosanjh has written a new book about the Cambridge Music Scene. Included with this is a link to download the whole book as a low-res PDF file so you can see what you are getting. It has the Walking Tour, the people, the music halls, everything. It appears that he has gotten with all his old friends and pooled all of their memories, photos, memorabilia and more to produce this book.

Syd Barrett fans are nothing if not detail orientated. This book is the obsessive-compulsive Syd fan's DREAM!The book is only 15 English Pounds too. I was looking through the PDF and, I must say, it's impressive; a must-have document for any serious fan of Syd Barrett.

Here's a link where you can learn a LOT more about this cool book. You can order one, you can contact Warren, you can download the PDF and see the whole thing for yourself:
