From there, I went on to Barrett's masterpiece, Pink Floyd's 1967 album The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, and my ideas about music's possibilities were never really the same again. The green light for that was a 1981 single, I Know Where Syd Barrett Lives, by the Television Personalities. From then on, his influence became built in to the music we now know as indie rock. Leaving aside successive generations' interest in his drug habits, his music offered all kinds of pointers: chiefly, to how to combine being musically out-there with a confrontational edge.

The Television Personalities are an English group with a varying line-up. There's a little man in a little house With a little pet dog and a little pet mouse I know where he lives and I visit him We have Sunday tea, sausages and beans I know where he lives 'Cause I know where Syd Barrett lives. He was very famous once upon a time But no one knows even if he's alive But I know where he lives and I visit him In a little hut in Cambridge I know where he lives 'Cause I know where Syd Barrett lives.
Original Pink Floyd leader Syd Barrett had hardly been seen in public for about a decade whenTelevision Personalities claimed to know his whereabouts in the indie pop-folk ditty I Know Where Syd Barrett Lives, the pastoral atmosphere of the Barrett-esque tune enhanced by constant bird chirps. The band was removed as the supporting act on a mid-1980s tour by Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour after giving out Barrett’s actual address onstage.
I know where he lives and I visit him. We have sunday tea, sausages and beans. I know where he lives. Cause I know where Syd Barrett lives. He was very famous once upon a time. But no one knows even if he's alive. But I know where he lives and I visit him. In a little hut in Cambridge. And the trees and the flowers are so pretty, aren't they? He was very famous once upon a time. And no one cares even if he's alive (we do). In a little hut by the edge of the wood.
Back in the 70s and 80s, his group The Television Personalities wrote classic, funny songs like Part Time Punks and I Know Where Syd Barrett Lives, but the past few years of homelessness and drug addiction haven’t been quite so kind to him. After his fifth stay in prison, he decided to sort his life out a bit. He’s still homeless (he’s staying at his sister’s), but he has made another good Television Personalities album. Called My Dark Places, and made with a new incarnation of his band, it alternates witty songs with some incredibly bleak, and pretty out-there material . In the boat they give you a menu. People go back there regularly. JOHN ROBINSON The Television Personalities’ album My Dark Places is out now on Domino. And Don’t the Kids Just Love It. World of Pauline Lewis Lyrics. 8. 9.
