Two big cover stories dominate this issue. Top of the bill, a brain-searing interview with Andrew Loog Oldham, the brilliant ‘60s Svengali of Immediate Records and Rolling Stones infamy. The cover features an exclusive ‘60s era photo of Andrew by famed photographer Gered Mankowitz. Next… 13 years in the making… the strangest, deepest, darkest tale ever told in UT. Mike Stax goes on the trail of Craig Smith a.k.a. Maitreya Kali, the mysterious figure responsible for the loner psych mega-rarities Apache and Inca. An epic-length story you will never forget.
And that’s not all, folks. There’s Part Two’s of The Haunted and The Radiators From Space, plus UK freakbeat legends Sands and Sundragon, The Motions and The Dream from Holland, Manzanita Jungle, The Immediate Family, Billy & the Conquerors, Stones Unturned, and an interview with Britain's 'King of the Beatniks,' Royston Ellis. Cyril Jordan’s outrageously popular column relives the year 1966, and, as always, there’s our extensive review sections covering all the latest reissues, rock‘n’roll books and DVDs.
