The Madcap's Last Laugh: Syd Barrett Documentary To Be Released This Year

Article written by Kev W - Jun 28, 2015

Roddy Bogawa's documentary film about Syd Barrett's life and work is set to be released this year, with an exact date likely to be towards the end of summer. Featuring interviews with surving members of Pink Floyd, 'Have You Got It?' takes its name from an unfinished track that the band were working on as a five-piece at the time of Barrett's departure.

Of the song, Wikipedia says:

"Barrett's unpredictable behaviour at the time and idiosyncratic sense of humour combined to create a song that, initially, seemed like an ordinary Barrett tune. However, as soon as the others attempted to join in and learn the song, Barrett changed the melodies and structure, making it impossible for the others to follow, while singing the chorus "Have You Got It Yet?" and having the rest of the band answer "No, no!". This would be his last attempt to write material for Pink Floyd before leaving the band. In fact, Waters stated, in an interview for The Pink Floyd and Syd Barrett Story, that upon realizing Barrett was deliberately making the tune impossible to learn, he put down his bass guitar, left the room, and never attempted to play with Barrett again. Waters had called it "a real act of mad genius". The song was never recorded by Pink Floyd or Barrett."

Watch this rare footage of Syd performing the final track of his that the band released, 'Jugband Blues':
