Gary Lachman reflects on the Occult Revival of the Sixties and early Seventies, tracing the core themes that arose from it which remain relevant today. His book Turn off Your Mind: The Mystic Sixties and the Dark Side of the Age of Aquarius achieved a cult status and was acclaimed by both Christian Fundamentalists and satanists alike. Tonight he gives his current thoughts on that Occult Explosion, when rejected and ridiculed beliefs took centre stage, reaching the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, saturating the the hippies and flower power. Gary Lachman, as Gary Valentine, was a founder member of Blondie, and co-wrote many of the group's early hits. He is now a writer and literary critic, author of numerous books, and contributing to broadsheet newspapers and literary journals.
