Candy and a Currant Bun was the B-side to Pink Floyd’s first single, Arnold Layne, recorded 29 January 1967 at Sound Techniques Studios in London.
When performed live in 1967, the song was known as “Let’s Roll Another One” and contained the line “I’m high – Don’t try to spoil my fun”, but the record company forced Syd Barrett to rewrite it, at the suggestion of Roger Waters, without the controversial drug references. Nevertheless, the recorded version added the line “Oh don’t talk with me/Please just fuck with me”, which the BBC censors missed.
