There are plans to reveal more unseen material at regular intervals throughout the year, as well as publishing a range of articles about Syd and his music from celebrity guest writers.

From a musical icon to one of the UK’s most talked about emerging artists – Alistair James has already been attracting attention from the likes of Miles Kane, Tom Clarke, BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson and Mark Plati, the New York based producer who has worked with the likes of Prince, The Cure and David Bowie.

Mark Plati was so impressed by Alistair that he invited him over to to NYC to record there fore three months last year. Those sessions resulted in the recording of Alistairs’ single ‘Have You Ever Been Low’, a gloriously upbeat record that is sure to see of any January blues!
