Bureau Of Lost Culture – Albion Dream: A Brief History Of British LSD (08/05/2022)

Soho Radio

Experimental treatment of the insane, secret tests by MI5 on volunteers thinking they were helping find a cure for the common cold, potential weapon research by the Ministry of defence with unsuspecting troops – the early history of LSD in the UK was rather inauspicious. But then all hell – or heaven – broke loose..

Britain’s foremost psychedelic historian Andy Roberts returns to the Bureau to take us on a trip through the revolutions in the head caused by Acid from the 1950s to now.
Along the way we meet some of the characters who experimented, manufactured, dealt, swallowed and were transformed by it – as well as those who tried to stop them – including an unlikely Breaking Bad style pharmacist in Islington, The Microdot Gang and even the Kray Twins..
