Tuesday June 4, 2019

The day begins with comrades and I busing down to Trafalgar Square, where thousands gather to protest the president, picket signs in hand. Elated by this show of force, I settle in afterwards at the British Library for another round of research. Objects of study include a full run of Gandalf’s Garden and books by Ithell Colquhoun. Dare I share here the fruits of this research, or shall I exercise discretion, assuming that the terms of my use of this material will be made manifest in the days ahead? “All in due time,” I decide over a bowl of Spicy Tonkotsu. “All in due time.”

    1. A little bit of both, probably! 😉 It was a British counterculture magazine inspired by LOTR but with a heavy mystical/psychedelic bent. John Peel wrote a column featured in the first few issues. Unfortunately the magazine didn’t last much longer than its first year (1968-1969).

      1. Sounds enticing. I’ve listened to some low-fi files of John’s seminal show from that period. Found them mesmerising, despite the quality deficit. To hear his distinctive voice say things like, ‘Here is a new song from Jefferson Airplane called Somebody to Love’ is really rather thrilling.
        Enjoy your time in the hallowed halls.
