4.00

I had a distributor in the USA and a large print run, 25,000 for this issue, with a dazzling cover by a bright new artist John Higgins, and a “spaced out” back cover by Chris Morton. I had a new co-editor John May who wrote the Inside Dope column in the NME, and two of it's star journalists, Julie Burchill and Tony Parsons, wrote an article on the New Wave and speed. Michael Marten reported on the CIA secret drug experiments, how the CIA got hooked on dugs and ran amok, the first to appear in the British press. I am pleased to have published Brian Barritt's fictionalised account of subterranean city – Amsterdam, and we became life-long close friends.

Also four page pictorial by Sean Sprague on Ketama, hash capital of Morocco, and two pages of interesting letters from the readers. Gareth of Maidstone, Kent, wrote “maintain your current stance and will thus establish yourselves as a source of wisdom and guidance”.
