Syd Barrett’s First Psychedelic Trip

This experimental silent short is very rare (filmed in 8mm) and only lasts 11 minutes. Nigel Gordon, film student, filmed Syd Barrett while he tripped on mushrooms. This film is made up of two parts. Part 1: Syd tripping at Gog Magog Hills. Part 2: April ’67, Pink Floyd right after they signed their first recording contract, with EMI Records at Abbey Road Studios.

If you don’t know who Roger Keith “Syd” Barrett was or if you do and want to know more, read his page on wikipedia.
