Next #psychedelic jam is the influential first track from Pink Floyd's first album, The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn (1967). Gently unhinged, this is. Much love for Syd.   10

Not sure where this version comes from - bootleg probably. Written by Sid Barrett. Original was on the 1967 album Piper At The Gates of Dawn but I prefer the longer live version on Ummagumma. Could not get either however. #spacerockweek #spacedog   8

I got into Pink Floyd listening to The Wall. After that, I listened through Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Meddle, Ummagumma, and Animals and loved it all. Finally, though, I picked up their first album, which I knew was going to be very different. I didn't know what to expect. "Astronomy Domine" is the first song, of course, and, man, once this thing got going... Whoa. My brain had a "WTF" moment like it hadn't had since the first time I watched Brazil. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. It's basically a song about pondering the vastness of space—possibly while high—and finding the experience overwhelming. This is where the Flaming Lips were born.

Now that we've moved to with walking distance of Greenwich Park I have a feeling we'll be spending a lot more time with our heads among the stars...

Hanging out just out side the Gates of Dawn waiting for the Piper. He's late. This released on the 5th of August 1967. It sounds beautifully dated. Get your Syd on.   17
