Good point. Probably the speaker knows me and was meaning "never listened before by me" Smile

Barrett was just a guest on that night, anyway I assume that the songs they mention are not Scream Thy Last Scream or Vegetable Man.
I'll see if I can find more info. 


Mmm... if the songs were recorded live, then they can't be "never listened before".

Reading the name, Last Minute Put Together Boogie Band is what the radio mentioned.

According to David Parker's excellent and relentlessly detailed record of Syd's work, Barrett played 4-5 shows (the last unconfirmed) in January and February 1972, at 3 locations all in Cambridge.  There is no set list for the 1/27 show.

However, on 2/24 he played his last confirmed gig at Corn Exchange with Monck and Twink as part of a group dubbed "Stars."  The set list for this show was: Octopus, Dark Globe, Baby Lemonade, Waving my Arms in the Air, Lucifer Sam, Blues Jam 1 and Blues Jam 2. 

Parker notes the mention of a second gig on 2/26 but couldn't confirm it, thus he concludes the one above may have been the last show.

I think it's this:  1972-01-27 Last Minute Put Together Boogie Band gig, Corn Exchange, Cambridge (Syd - guitar, Jack Monck - bass, Twink - drums, Fred Frith - guitar, Bruce Paine - vocals & guitar)
