Brain Damage has been contacted by our friends over at top UK music magazine Mojo, after help from us and all of you!

Writer Mark Sturdy has been commissioned by the magazine to write a piece on former Pink Floyd front man Syd Barrett's career around 1971-1973 - in other words, his last couple of years in music.

The main emphasis will be on his band Stars, but also he is chasing up various other little stories such as his alleged collaborations with Steve Took and Jack Bruce.

He's currently looking for anyone who has material or recollections relating to this period. This includes people who were at the gigs, people who were around at the time, photos, tapes, etc.. In his research so far, he's already uncovered a fair amount of new ground on this under-explored period, suggesting that there's plenty more to be told.

Anyone who would be willing to contribute to the article should email Mark at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it Anyone who helps will be fully credited; use of photos and other materials will be paid for...
