Pink Floyd 67
DID you see Pink Floyd at The Birdcage in the sixties.

An author is researching the history of the famous band and is wondering gif any of our readers saw them at the famous Harlow venue just close to the market square.

Richard Houghton said: “I’m interested in capturing people’s memories of this gig for posterity and hopefully in the process telling the band’s story in a slightly different way via first hand accounts of their earliest shows.

“I’d love to hear from anyone who saw them in their early career and I can be reached at [email protected]”.

Aged 17, I saw Pink Floyd play at the Birdcage in 1967. Sadly, I have no souvenirs from that night. I was into soul music and around that time, Eddie Floyd had a hit with "Knock on Wood". I must have only registered the word "Floyd", so I set off on my scooter from Southampton to the Birdcage expecting to see E.F. and was disappointed to see Pink Floyd. I thought they were "cheating" when one of the band put on a reel to reel taperecorder to enhance their sound! How wrong I was. I wish I had taken my camera with me. The only small "compensation" that year was going to Eel Pie Island. I can't remember who was on, and all I can remember is walking over that bridge and, once in, walking over lots of broken glass. I still have my membership card though!
