Customer Review

on 17 September 2008
Roberts covers a lot of ground as he details Albionic acid culture from the early days until now... The sweep is impressive but he also provides lots of interesting details. There is material in here that doesn't seem to have been discussed outside very select circles in recent years - the Ladbroke Grove drugs and magic scene (first spliff, then acid) around THE original mod Terry Taylor (the model for the narrator of Absolute Beginners - and the first British writer to mention LSD in a novel, his 1961 cult classic Baron's Court, All Change); not to mention stuff on the Victor James Kapur acid manufacturing bust (north London 1967, the first such bust after criminalisation). There's also the inside dope on military research with LSD, medical uses and the free festival scene. So all in all essential reading for anyone wanting to know about the impact of LSD on Albion....
