This is essentially a reprint of 4 entire issues of the infamous Process Church’s self published magazine-self distributed to unsuspecting members of the public on the streets of London by imposing, caped members of the Church, before their relocated to California…. home of proper hippie cults… Despite the Satanic rhetoric, it’s pretty tame stuff, it’s really only Tim Wylie’s (who is interviewed in the back) wild, psychedelic graphics that makes this such fascinating material. However the Church weren’t opposed to associating themselves with any celebrity they could “doorstep” interview. Probably the most significant – if you’re looking for ‘satanic’ as-in the personification of evil (opposed to Lucifer the Promethean knowledge bringer) then Jimmy Saville pretty much admits to paedophilia ! In depth interviews with Jagger & Faithfull were published in other issues, that apparently couldn’t be reprinted due to copyright issues. I’ll be posting original copies here soon + plus the first Californian issue.

Given that copies of the original magazine are almost impossible to find -at any cost -the book quickly sold out, and since it hasn’t been reprinted, it’s become an expensive collector’s item in it’s own right. Despite writing a book for Feral House’s Process imprint, I didn’t managed to order copies for the shop! To give some idea copies ‘sit’ on Amazon – for sale at £5500+ while copies are offered on Abebooks for £500- £250+ ( +£50 shipping to EU)….
This copies : Near Fine/ EX : doesn’t appear to have been handled much, the glossy cover has the usual minor surface rubs from being placed on a surface. The front cover has a couple of extremely minor indentations.
