'Like Black Holes In The Sky': The Tribute To SYD BARRETT CD Out September 23

Two years ago the legendary Syd Barrett died. He was, of course, once the primary songwriter for Pink Floyd in it's original incarnation, a man who had retreated to the life of a country hermit by the time Pink Floyd were in their commercial hey day.

He's a cult figure, but more than that one of the primary catalyst for British psychedelic rock

On September 23rd, Dwell Records is releasing Like Black Holes In The Sky: The Tribute To SYD BARRETT. Thank god the bands are appropriately obscure (no Madonna doing Octopus or Britney doing Arnold Layne with Moby)

KYLESA – 'Interstellar Overdrive'
INTRONAUT – 'Arnold Layne'
STINKING LIZAVETA – 'Matilda Mother'
