Londoner 60s Underground Mag „International Times“ online

itmag

Ich liebe sowas hier: Das Underground-Mag „International Times“ aus den swinging Sixties und natürlich aus London ist komplett online gestellt worden und es ist voller Farben und Hippies. Paul McCartney finanzierte das Teil und gelauncht wurde es auf einem Konzert von Pink Floyd, Beiträge für das Mag kamen u.a. von John Peel, William Burroughs oder Allen Ginsberg und die Redaktion wurde wiederholt von der Polizei durchsucht, was man mit einer Gegenaktion beantwortete, Snip von Wikipedia:

In response to yet another raid on the paper’s offices, London’s alternative press on one occasion succeeded, somewhat astonishingly, in pulling off what was billed as a “reprisal attack” on the police—prompting the Evening Standard headline Raid on the Yard. The paper Black Dwarf published a detailed floor-by-floor guide to Scotland Yard, complete with diagrams, descriptions of locks on particular doors and snippets of overheard conversation in the offices of Special Branch. The anonymous author, or “blue dwarf,” as he styled himself, described how he perused police files, and even claimed to have sampled named brands of whisky in the Commissioner’s office. A day or two later The Daily Telegraph announced that the “raid” had forced the police to withdraw and re-issue all security passes.
