Those of you with long memories, will recall that back on 22nd December, we told you that early Pink Floyd producer Joe Boyd was putting the finishing touches to his autobiography, looking at his work in the music industry in the sixties.

The annual Brighton Festival is a very popular event in the city, and Joe will be participating in it with a special show, which we are giving away a pair of tickets to!

Joe Boyd & Robert Wyatt
Joe Boyd & Robert Wyatt
His book, "White Bicycles: Making Music In The 1960s" is published by Serpent's Tail on 25th May 2006. It includes his work with the Syd Barrett line up of the Floyd, where, amongst other things, he worked on their session at Sound Techniques Studios, and on the single release of Arnold Layne.

The show marks the launch of his eagerly awaited autobiography, occurring two days after the date of publication, and the legendary producer is joined by founder member of Soft Machine Robert Wyatt, who helped transform the late sixties psychedelic scene, alongside Pink Floyd, before carving out a prolific solo career in the company of Elvis Costello and Björk. Still very much an active musician, he most recently worked with David Gilmour on his forthcoming solo album, "On An Island".

The show promises to be a fascinating insight into both men's illustrious careers, and is being held at the Corn Exchange in Brighton (on the south coast of England) at 7:30pm. More details at www.BrightonFestival.org.

To win a pair of tickets for the show - a unique chance to hear two legends give their version of events - you needed to answer the following questions correctly:

  1. What club did Boyd start up, with Hoppy Hopkins?
  2. What record label did Boyd create?
  3. Which Syd Barrett album does Wyatt appear on?

Entries were accepted until 11:59pm GMT on May 25th, with the winner being picked from all the qualifying entries on May 26th, 2006.
