Show notes:

‘After a lengthy interval, the band decided to take the stage (there is a certain amount of dispute as to which venue this all took place at) – all except for Syd Barrett, who was left in the dressing room, manically trying to organise his anarchically- inclined hairstyle of the time.

As his comrades were tuning up, Barrett – more out of desperation than anything – emptied the contents of a jar of Mandrax, broke the pills into tiny pieces and mixed the crumbs in with a full jar of Brylcreem. He then poured the whole coagulated mass onto his head, picked up his Telecaster, and walked on stage.

As he was playing his customary incoherent, sporadic, almost catatonic guitar-phrases, the Mandrax-Brylcreem combination started to run amok under the intense heat of the stage-lighting and dribbled down from his scalp so that it looked like his face was melting into a distorted wax effigy of flesh.

This story is probably more or less true. ‘ (Länk)
