HELLO FELLOW APPRECIATORS!
THIS PART OF THE SITE IS WHERE YOU CAN JOIN AN OFFICIAL FAN-BASE. WE TRY TO MAKE IT FUN, AND TO JOIN YOU SIMPLY NEED TO ANSWER THE SYD BARRETT RELATED QUESTION BELOW. ONCE YOU HAVE ANSWERED CORRECTLY YOU WILL BE A MEMBER OF ASTRAL PIPER, THE NEW SYD BARRETT APPRECIATION SOCIETY. PLEASE READ THE DETAILS BELOW CAREFULLY BEFORE JOINING!
OKAY HERE IS THIS MONTH'S QUESTION...
What is Syd Barrett's real full name?
CLUE: The answer appears within this website!
To join, simply e-mail us the ANSWER here at (mail address deleted) and please place the following exact words, ASTRAL PIPER MEMBER APPLICATION in the subject line of your e-mail.
IMPORTANT...Please also include (underneath your answer) your NAME, CITY AND COUNTRY. As we treat our Society with respect and honesty, please do not provide any fictional information! If for some strange reason, you prefer to remain Anonymous, please state this in your e-mail. Once you have answered the question correctly you will be instantly inducted to the Society's Official Membership.
As a Society (hopefully of mammoth numbers in the near future), I plan to aim high in creating a cause for our fellowship. This may include... getting some petitions created to look at getting un-released Syd Barrett material released officially by the Record Companies. I would especially like to see Vegetable Man and Scream thy Last Scream finally enshrined officially on CD, and maybe our Society could help with part of the artwork for the sleeve design? I would also like to get some form of memorial tribute designed and erected somewhere in Cambridge. These are the sort of plans I have for our number.
I am also currently looking at getting some modern style tee-shirts printed up for the Society and it's many new members from around the globe. Membership is free, but we do ask that you do participate and contribute in some way, large or small. This may be as simple as making your own personal tribute in the form of poetry, a drawing, a comic strip, a painting, a sculpture, short story, short film...whatever you can set your mind to creatively. E-mail us with your work, so that we can add your idea to the fun and excitement of this new Syd Barrett fanbase. If all else fails, just visit here often to see whats new! Join now to help let the soul of Syd live on!
