SYD BARRETT – MAISIE – June 4, 1970
from the album “The Madcap Laughs”
00individual cannot ignore the 500 pound Lucifer Sam in the room that is Syd. To speak of his rare talent of being the Godfather of Psychedelic Rock is to acknowledge the fine line between genius and madness or in Syd’s case disassociation.
People, fans and interested parties will continue to discuss Syd’s creativity, vision and mental condition – but in the end it is what it is; the result of the chances and choices one makes when entering the mind-bending reality-altering worlds of hallucinatory drugs.
In all of 00individual’s adventures he never knew any cases where someone, a friend, lost it mentally – there were addictions and their downsides, but nothing like the isolated transformation of a person and their personality. Which leads SFH deductions that for most of those who “flip out” there was a predisposed genetic or psychological loaded weapon within themselves just waiting for some “thing” to pull the trigger. In those cases repeated doses of LSD could certainly create a psychosis and for some just “a little tab’ll do ya!”
From what I’ve read the recording sessions for Syd’s two solo albums were strenuous on those involved and Gilmour took the brunt.
On the bright side, through much perseverance, we got unique cool tracks from Syd’s two albums; “Barrett” – and “The Madcap Laughs” from which comes this Album Track Gem, “Maisie“.
