Recently Syd Barrett’s original demo for the Bugaloo’s theme song was discovered in a discarded paintbox. Originally recorded in 1970 and not released until now, here is that rare demo sung by Syd!!
Has anyone found Syd’s lost demos for the “Hamburglar at the Gates of Dawn” ad campaign?
This is interesting… thank you!
@skovie23232 lol,good call, but i think they meant kid shows for adults on acid.
i wish there was a band that sounded like this. some would say “they are a ripoff” but admit it, every real syd fan loves this track. at times it sounds a little more like roger waters singing style than syds. but the overall structure is all roger barrrett style. his sound was so unique and simple and soothing. i would buy music from whoever this band really is.
@sneakerino how the fuck can this be fake, I think i hate you
@TINTcrey children on LSD?
Is there I can download this?
Very good! Remember when So many kids shows seemed to be made for children on LSD? Forget Tellitubbies. Bugaloos is trippin’!
fake fake fuckin stupid fake
drum sounds are post 1970, definitely a fake…doesn’t sound fuck-all like SYD to boot…
This is funny, but as many other posters have already pointed out, the style of songwriting and vocal delivery are much more in the vein of post-Syd Floyd. For the definitive Syd Barrett send-up, check out “Sunny Side Circus” by Fairfield Parlour, which is also up on YouTube. It actually came out in the middle of 1970, and fooled alot of people at the time.
Meanwhile, I’ll remain on the lookout for Nick Drake’s legendary elusive alternative theme to “Sabrina And The Groovie Goolies.”
LOL- nice job.
kinda has that “Obscured By Clouds” sound to it
Thanks for this! Two of my favorite things ever wrapped into one! Very well done. For another Syd Barrett parody, search out “Syd Barrett Visits His Accountant”.. though this is better executed. Another goody is “Pink Floyd – Paying The Piper”. Nasty prisms good sir!
It’s not Syd.
Oh how I wish this was for real!
LOL. This is great. Good job on the vocals and the musical arrangement. Very Syd-esque.
If this really is Pink Floyd this rendition of the tune most likely was done as a joke. No way would this be intended for the kids show. If this is a total fake of Pink Floyd, very well done! It is very 1970 Pink Floyd in sound. IMHO this IS Floyd, sans Syd.
So what is the real story about this tune?! Hmm?? Fess up!
This sounds like Pink Floyd with David Gilmour on guitar and Roger Waters on vocals. There is no sign of Syd Barrett in this tune, as one would expect in 1970.
not syd for sure i mean really
It’s not Syd folks.
is this real, or not?
sounds like him
wow im surprised that so few people realised that this is a joke.
