A high pixel scan has surfaced of Pink Floyd backstage at the 5th Dimension in Leicester on September 27th, 1967. Click the image to the left to see full size. The line-up was Pink Floyd, Amboy Dukes, Chris Farlowe and The Family. I was recently informed that this was the UK Amboy Dukes and not the garage/psych Legends from the USA. Annnnnyway, the 5th Dimension was a well known Leicester psychedelic club in the late 1960s. As one can see, many big psych-rock acts played, and although the club no longer exists, the esteemed name has occasionally been revived for psychedelic club nights held in Leicester today.
We have the picture and the Osiris poster by Michael English, left and Nigel Waymouth. Enjoy!
