The BBC are broadcasting a programme from the Institute of Contemporary Arts on the Mall next Tuesday about the writer Aldous Huxley and examining the impact and legacy of mescaline and psychedelia in his writings. They are looking for a studio audience and wondered whether you'd like to come - it's open to anyone but they thought Pooterland would be a good place to start! As they're broadcasting live there's obviously little potential to overrun so you should be away pretty promptly at 9pm GMT.
Obviously this is only applicable to UK residents, if anybody wants to go then download the Fact Sheet and contact Anna Charlton as soon as possible (details on fact sheet).
For those into classic British Psychedelia we would like to tell you about Sweet Floral Albion.
S*F*A* SWEET FLORAL ALBION
is a free monthly e-zine devoted to UK psychedelia and you can get subscribed to this zine by simply emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and asking them to add your name to their list (please mention Pooterland when you do!!).
They have been going for just over six months and feature book and album reviews, an ongoing UK Psych Discography, band lyrics and all sorts of wonderful curios related to Sixties British Psych.
Their current subscriber base is around 500-600 so lets help them get to 1000!!
To get a sneak preview of this zine you can check out their archive on Jim Mac's excellent site: www.marmaladeskies.co.uk, where you will be able to read back issues of S*F*A*
Go get some, it's cool!!
