Bureau of Lost Culture – In the Sixties: with Barry Miles (09/12/2023)
He was friends with Burroughs and Ginsberg, wrote their biographies along with those of the Beatles, Paul McCartney, Frank Zappa, Charles Bukowski, Jack Kereouc and penned books on The Beat Hotel, Pink Floyd, The Stones – amongst about 70 others.
Barry Miles (Miles to his friends) came back to the Bureau to tell us all about it.
We hear how he set up Indica Gallery where Lennon met Yoko, started International Times – the bible of the underground – was instrumental in the UFO club and the 14 Hour Technicolour Dream and jow his wife Sue gave McCartney his first hash brownie – and that was just the sixties.
We will do the seventies next time.
