The Case of the Painted Floorboards

Entry 1683 posted in: The Holy Church of Iggy the Inuit


Summer 1969.

Harvest hotshots ask Hipgnosis to design a sleeve for Syd Barrett's The Madcap Laughs album that is in its final mix. Storm Thorgerson goes to Syd's flat to take the some shots, but decides later, for whatever reason, to use the (Mick Rock influenced) pictures that have been taken months before.

Alternative titles for this intriguing and spectacular blogpost could have been:
Of toy planes and dirty feet...
Still life with daffodils and pot of paint...
The great madcap laughs swindle...
but eventually the Holy Igquisition settled for...
The Case of the Painted Floorboards

Read it, at your own risk, at the Holy Church of Iggy the Inuit!
