You have probably read it already that Syd Barrett, one of the founders of Pink Floyd, has died at the age of 60. Although he has only participated on two PF-Albums (Piper At The Gates Of Dawn and Saucerful Of Secrets), he has always been connected to the band. The later songs Wish You Were Here and Shine On You Crazy Diamond have both been dedicated to him by his fellow band members. Mr Barrett has now gone up there to play with that legendary band in the sky… farewell! 😦

The band formerly known as Cherryfalls, The New York Found, have released a new song. It’s called Guns Of Camden Town and is yours for free on MySpace. I quite like it… reminds me of The Doors, this one!

The Cooper Temple Clause frequently release songs via their homepage. Here’s not a new one, but an old demo they dug out from their archives. It’s an instrumental version of All I See Is You. Get it if you want to!

Somerset’s great Prog-Rock-band The Pineapple Thief surprise us with the first new song from their forthcoming album. It’s stream-only, though, but if it is anything to go by, the album should be another great one!
