Have You Got It Yet The Story of Syd Barrett and Pink Floyd - Spread with Poster

Syd Barrett Film HYGIY? Physical & Digital Release Announced

Syd Barrett Film “Have You Got It Yet: The Story of Syd Barrett and Pink Floyd” will be physically released on 19th July 2024. It will also be available to stream digitally. Having watched the documentary film in the cinema, I am very excited to get a copy of this unmissable release. The documentary story is told in the most respectful way about Syd rather than the usual drug and sensationalist slant. Syd had undiagnosed mental conditions that are spoken about much more in 2024 than back in the 1960s. He is often idolised for his creativity and drug use together, but he was very creative without the drugs. The drugs were not helpful at all. Pre-Order your copy from Amazon UK.

Review: Have You Got It Yet? The Story of Syd Barrett and Pink Floyd.

Rating: ★★★★☆ “Have You Got It Yet?” is a mesmerising and thought-provoking documentary that unravels the enigmatic life of Syd Barrett, the founding member of Pink Floyd, and his significant role in the psychedelic rock movement of the 1960s.

Syd Barrett Documentary Have You Got It Yet? Finished

Mercury Studios announces the completion of the feature length documentary HAVE YOU GOT IT YET? THE STORY OF SYD BARRETT AND PINK FLOYD, along with producers Believe Media and A Cat Called Rover. The film was directed by award-winning filmmaker Roddy Bogawa and late famed graphic designer Storm Thorgerson. Syd Barrett, one of the founding members of Pink Floyd gave the group their moniker by combining the names of two obscure blues players – Pink Anderson and Floyd Council – and wrote their first two charting singles but was quietly pushed out of the group who were convinced he had suffered an LSD induced psychotic breakdown, replaced by his childhood friend David Gilmour. Subsequently releasing two solo LPs that garnered minor attention though considered by many contemporary musicians as uniquely haunting and poetic, Barrett dropped out of music returning home to Cambridge for the last thirty years of his life...
