A Bay of Hope

Entry 1612 posted in: The Holy Church of Iggy the Inuit


Last week a professional rock memorabilia seller put some pictures for sale that he described as:

4 X ORIGINAL MICK ROCK PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN AND PRINTED IN 1974 SHOWING SYD IN HIS FLAT WITH PAINTED BOARDS

The 4 prints show Syd Barrett in his apartment and date from The Madcap Laughs photo sessions where both Mick Rock and Storm Thorgerson showed up.

The most recent article at The Holy Church of Iggy the Inuit explains that:

¤ the pictures date from 1969, not 1974
¤ belong to the Hipgnosis photo shoot (not Mick Rock's)

...and introduces a new photo gallery called StormWatch, dedicated to the fine art of Mr. Storm Thorgerson.
