    1. Dear International Times,
      I very much enjoy browsing the archive section of your website, but recently, it’s been down at least from where I am (France). Would you mind checking if there is an issue ?
      do you need help with that ?

    4. I wrote a article about Hoppy– maybe you are interested/Users/karenmoller/Pictures/Hoppy.docxJohn Hopkins, known as Hoppy died January 2015

      Hoppy, one of the leading figures in the 1960’s counter culture, stud¬ied physics and mathemat¬ics at Cam¬bridge and worked as a physicist for the Atomic Energy Com¬mission till he fell in with the CND. Like many people in the un¬derground, he dab¬bled in almost every¬thing, including music and pub¬lishing before becoming a photogra¬pher and major force behind London’s 1960’s events. He recorded peace marches, poetry readings, “happenings”, as well as photographing leading counter-cultural figures like Yoko Ono, Barry Miles and most of the leading musicians, including the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd and the Soft Machine. He was a gifted photographer and a generous person who kindly allowed me to use his photographs in my memoir Technicolor Dreamin’ the 1960’s Rainbow and Beyond.

      Hoppy helped create the counter-culture newspaper, IT, (Interna¬tional Times) a fringe arts magazine with underground news from around the world and texts by impor¬tant contemporary thinkers. Its “Censorshit” column was close to eve-ryone’s heart. The main distributor was the ever-active Barry Miles and any shop with a sign in their window that said, “You can get IT here” made that shop part of the counter-culture. The inauguration party, All-Night Rave Pop Op Costume Masque Drag Ball Et Al was held at the Chalk Farm Roundhouse, abandoned since the electrification of the trains, was a huge derelict building of ancient iron and rotting timbers. The launch, best described as co-operative anarchy, was Soft Machine’s and Pink Floyd’s first gig. They were both light-years ahead of any other groups with Soft Machine’s psychedelic-laced jazz sounds and amazing open-ended innovations often ended in an extended chant; Pink Floyd’s scary feedback sounds and repeat echoes were enhanced by the acoustics of that cavernous space. Yoko Ono staged a Fluxus-style Happen Shortly and someone made a huge, six-foot glutinous jelly in a large tub. The jelly did not quite harden and spread over the uneven floor like a creeping monster; its demolition completed when Pink Floyd accidentally backed their van over it. The horrible mess clung to my shoes as I danced, but I was having too good a time to care.

      The alternative society was at its most social, and showing off was the or¬der of the night. Many people had silver foil headdresses and re¬fraction lenses in the middle of their foreheads. There were a lot of media-familiar faces in the crowd. Paul McCartney dressed as a sheik and Mick Jagger with Marianne Faithful who was dressed in a nun’s habit that did not quite cover her bottom. She won the prize for the “shortest/barest.” Antonioni, in London to film Blow Up, seemed tired and a little bemused by it all, while Monica Vitti, in her Italian finery, looked out of place.

      Although the hippie movement was mushrooming, our newspaper went from one financial crisis to another. To solve IT’s problems, Hoppy opened the UFO Club in partnership with an oddball American and jazz fan, Joe Boyd. The site, with its polished dance floor and a revolving mirrored ball in the center, was an unlikely hippie venue, yet UFO flourished and included, at one time or another, most of the under¬ground and rock-and-roll elite. One memorable night, Jimi Hendrix played for a few minutes while the Rolling Stones watched. Whatever I might say about Hendrix phenomenal energy and passionate playing would be inadequate.

      Rumors spread that it was only a matter of time before UFO, the Roundhouse and everything the counter-culture stood for would be shut down. Without that rumor, the busting of IT’s offices by the Porn Squad who seized the money, customer lists, correspondence and carted away of the odd “dirty” book would have been incom¬prehensible, when just a few yards down the street were dozens of Soho shops selling hard-core porn. After many fruitless attempts to interest the news media in the unfair bust, Hoppy proposed a major hippie all-night event, or love-in, to put the newspaper back on its feet, The 14-Hour Technicolour Dream—a giant benefit against fuzz (police) action in the enormous Alexandra Pal¬ace, a Victorian metal and glass relic from the Great Exhibition, set in a park above North London. That event on the 29 of April 1967, promised to be a night of wonderments. In the ex¬pected atmos¬phere of good vibrations, security was lack and the peaceful tone almost erupted into flurries of viciousness, when a bunch of North London scooter boys, looking for agro attempted to overrun the gate with the avowed aim of “beating on” a few unresisting flower children. It was saved by the unexpected arrival of a crew of hippie maidens, led by Hoppy’s girlfriend, the scantily dressed Suzy Creamcheese. They smothered the scooter group with promises (probably not actually delivered) of sex and drugs beyond their wildest hopes.

      The Alexandra Pal¬ace event had everything synonymous with alternative culture—dress, sound effects, music and light shows. Everyone dressed as they pleased; the males the actual peacocks of the evening. Twin stages had been erected at the opposite ends of the hall and separate groups played simultaneously. Lights hung on a suspension bridge between the two stages were attached at mid-point to a rented fairground 30-foot helter-skelter slide that offered free rides to anyone with the courage to climb to the top and slide down that shaky structure. In that central area, under that helter skelter the random blend of the two opposing bands met and produced a throbbing and irregular heartbeat. I couldn’t help thinking that John Cage would have appreciated that weird, curious composition of accidental and totally arbitrary sounds. John Lennon obviously thought the same. He suddenly appeared among the crowd with John Dunbar from the Indica Gallery. “Hi, man!” my boyfriend greeted them. “Glad you guys could make it.” Dunbar tugged at his military style jacket as if it made him uncomfortable. “Yeah, far out,” he said. “We seen them filming this Technicolour Dream on TV and said fuck it, let’s go.” Lennon stopped and put his hand up as if to say wait. He moved back and then slowly forward, looking quite pensive. “Did you hear that?” he asked. He turned and walked back through the audio fusion zone created by those two opposing bands. He smiled and said, “Far fucking out.” Dunbar got out some grass and was about to roll a joint when a guy staggered toward him wearing a headband around his shoulder-length hair and oversized embroidered jeans. “Hey, man!” he shouted. “You’re draggin’, man. Try the banana skins?” Ken Kelsey had started a new hippie craze, claiming banana skins, properly prepared, and smoked, gave an incredible hallucino¬genic high. Dunbar laughed and pointed to the people squatting in groups under a sort of plastic igloo filled with smoke. “Forget it, man, the highs not worth the fucking smell.”

      At the far end of the hall, Soft Machine, soon to disappear from the music scene, had set up their equipment. Dressed in outlandish and conflicting outfits of miner’s helmets, Dr. Strange capes, and exaggerated makeup, their presentation made few concessions, their music as innovative as ever. The Pretty Things bashed out their incongruous sounds and the amazing Arthur Brown, with his white soul voice, whipped up the crowd with an inspiring performance God of Hellfire. The showstopper by The Purple Gang, should have made rock history with their hippie an¬them, Granny Takes a Trip, instead, they drifted into obscurity. Pink Floyd, their special effects rec¬reating an atmosphere of being stoned had the honor of closing the event. The atmosphere was electric as we joined hands with our neighbors, Pink Floyd hitting full orbital momentum with Astronomy Domine just as the first rays of the sun entered the enormous rose window.

      IT described the event as “full of euphoric transcendence and trust between strangers.” Financially speaking, it was more successful than anyone could have imag¬ined and should have raised over 10,000 pounds, had the money not disappeared into unknown pockets. So much for trust between ticket sellers and group unity. I only found out later that Hoppy created that magnificent get-together while out on bail from a drug charge. Six months earlier, the Drug Squad had raided his flat and found a small quantity of marijuana. No one considered it serious till Hoppy insisted in court that marijuana was harmless. The judge called him “a drug pest” and jailed him for nine months. We were devastated. Without Hoppy, Swinging London might never have happened, at least not in the way it did. With his passing he will be greatly missed.

    5. Thank you so much for your story, fragments of info I hear from different sources add to my own recollections. Such magic in such squalor, I lay amongst a pile of liter looking up at the ceiling as Pink Floyd played… a lot of people split in the night, poor fools!

    6. Hello Karen,
      I really enjoyed reading your article about Hoppy. My name is Charlotte and I work at the Roundhouse – we are working on a website that is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the venue. The website is going to be an official and personal history of the venue and we are curating people’s Roundhouse memories and stories. We really want to include as many memories and anecdotes from that opening night in 1966 with the International Times launch, so it would be wonderful to hear more of your memories of that night and any other nights you spent there.
      Do let me know,
      Very best

      Comment by Charlotte Roundhouse on 16 August, 2016 at 12:59 pm
    7. My old friend Jeff Cloves mentioned my long involvement with THE ROUNDHOUSE in Chalk Farm Road, NW5. First in the mid-1930’s when I lived nearby in two rooms with my parents in a street now gone off Ferdinand Street and close to where there is still block of concrete constructed flats of the German Bauhaus Constructivist design built for working class people in London. I tore my short trousers when climbing through the building site. The Roundhouse was then used as a Gilbey’s Gin Warehouse. Barrels of gin were pushed down a spiral ramp. Me and me mates having got in would play CHICKEN. On had to stand on the bottom of the ramp and jump off before the barrel hit you. Then in the 1950’s as an elected Labour Councillor for the area I campaigned to make it a People’s Theatre Center with the help of Sir Donald Wolfit. Not successful, but in the early 1960’s with my being asked by the General Secretary of the ACTT, Alan Sapper, to organise the First Trade Union Arts Week in London, I then at a meeting of the New Left Review called for the trade unions to back a nation-wide arts movement. With the help of Alan Sapper, Resolution 42 was passed at the TUC Conference on the Isle of Man and Centre 42 was born. As a professional design building services consultant with theatre design experience as well as being an actor, dancer and member of the Royal Court Writers Group, I worked on the initial plans to convert the Old Steam Engine Round House to become what it is today.

      Comment by Ken Grayling on 24 March, 2019 at 10:35 am
    10. I was honoured to speak at Hoppy’s funeral. I rambled on a bit but my main point was that he treated a 17 year old ignoramus with respect despite me now knowing what amazing things were going on around me. I was somehow in charge of classified advertising at IT during 1968 (issue 30 onwards I think). I also lived and worked with Nick Albury at BIT. Still no idea what I was doing though ! Fascinating to look back now and see what was really going on.

    12. Hello Editor,
      I hope you’re well. My name is Charlotte and I work at the Roundhouse. I am working on a 50th anniversary website which is celebrating the rich history of the venue and arts space. The launch of your newspaper was our first ever event and so it’s a really important part of our history. I wanted to get in contact to ask whether you might be happy to share any memories or information that you might have about the launch party of your newspaper at the Roundhouse (or Centre 42 as it was then).
      If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask
      Hope to hear from you soon,

    14. Hi, I am writing an autobiographical book which is guaranteed to not become a best seller (or even a very minimal seller, come to that) but my enquiry is regarding some entries in the original IT. For example Michael Abdul Malik wrote a poem, One Flower, which was published in IT in 1967 and which I would like to include as part of a reference to Michael, who was a neighbour in the sixties. Michael, by the way, was hanged in Trinidad in 1975. My enquiry concerns copyright, who owns it etc {?} but specifically I am seeking permission to reprint his poem and a couple of referenced quotes. Any help would be much appreciated.

      Many thanks, Francesca

    18. i used to hang out at Chepstow Villas in the mid 70s (76/77), i had a friend working in IT, Nigel, although i have lost touch over the years and life was very much a blur in those days. recently i found a couple of original artworks which m ust be from an issue of IT at the time. I trawled through the archives but couldn’t find it. If i email JPEGs to you could you give them to your archivist and see if they can link them? I want to frame them but i also want to specify the issue and page No etc.

    23. Do you know of any way to purchase back issues of printed IT? It does appear that IT is no longer printed, correct?

    24. Dear Editor, In a lapse of time between October 1967 and March 1968 I was selling IT just out of the tube stations, mainly Notting Hill, Sloane square, Earl’s Court etc. I was wondering: do I deserve something from this? Ah! When I was selling IT in Sloane square I sold two copies to poor Joe Cocker, who just left us. RIP.

      Comment by Piero Maha Luni on 23 December, 2014 at 4:03 am

    34. Hey there International Times,

      We from Blackjack Illuminist (based in the outskirts of Berlin) release Shoegaze/Ambient/Drone/Postrock/Pop records, CDs and tapes on a DIY basis.
      You’re looking for new sounds? Here we go: We would like to present to you our newest band Feverdreamt. We think you might like it, because it’s unusual enough to keep indie/drone all fresh and edgy. We’ve heard enough Shoegaze and Ambient which is never leaving the safe side.
      Feverdreamt from Berlin make gloomy melancholic, Oriental Drone Kraut Rock with Shoegazey/Post Rock guitars and cinemascope dramatic violins, yet it may also be true if you saw a certain folky Dream Pop attitude in some of the songs. Whatever you want to call it, it is somewhere in between sleeping and being awake, hence, the band’s name. The lyrics are sung in its own language: Terbansk.
      Now, the debut album was just released on tape and CD.
      To download it for free please go to the following address and redeem your code (rw45-hdhn …. okay, let’s provide you with some more as this is a public guest book, ha! aspb-vcpe, and one more: hffm-chev):


      If you want to immediately listen to a song please check out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zkZTzRuzrDA

      It would make us very happy, if you had fun with Feverdreamt’s album. However, we would be forever grateful if you wrote a some sentences about the album. If you need more (e.g. pictures) don’t hesitate to get back at us.

      Thanks a lot for your time, we’re looking forward to hearing from you.

    35. Nico has died on the 18th of July 1988 in Ibiza 27 years ago. But nevertheless life keeps going on and Nico’s work still leaves traces.
      So I felt it is about time to share my memories about my life with Nico.

    36. Heavens to betsy! (I have no idea what it means, but does work as an exclamation.) I thought IT was long gone, but here it is in my Twitter box. I used to sell IT (newspapers) on Baker Street, London in 1969. From there I went to Time Out when it was only available in London and just gone weekly. I wish you well and will definitely be checking out your articles in the future.

    37. Dear Editor – I’d like to feature the Angry Brigade communique about the Spanish Embassy (featured in December 1970) in a book I’m writing. One chapter is about the 1970 Miss World contest and I write a potted history of the Angry Brigade. Would this be possible do you think?

      Comment by Devon on 13 August, 2015 at 9:59 pm
    40. Hi Devon. Just came across your message on the board. Bit late but, do you still have the camera? I’ve been involved in making a film about Hoppy’s life with his estate’s blessing. Naturally his photos are part of the story. Some footage of his actual camera would be lovely! Here’s a link to the film: https://www.hoppyfilm.com/
      If there’s a way of hooking up and doing the deed then please get in touch.

      We’re Atom Heart, a hard rock band from Poland and we’ve just released debut EP. We would like to ask if you would be interested in writing a review of our album? Our music can be found at https://atomheartband.bandcamp.com/album/into-the-light I can also send you music in .mp3 or .wav if you prefer.

      Atom Heart has formed a year ago and since then the band has managed to play around 40 concerts in Poland and few in Berlin. The biggest band’s achievement is mentioned, debut EP as well as playing at second biggest Polish student festival – Juwenalia PW 2016.

      Hope to hear from you,
      All best,

    60. Hi,

      I’m a French journalist and I’m doing a work for my school of journalism. I would like to comment the photo “No Borders” (the guy in the frontier with the hamac) and just would like to check if the author of this photography is Heathcote Williams. As a matter of fact, the photo is on many websites and blogs and it’s kind of confuse about the sources. I saw that you were the first one to publish it and just wanted to make sure about the sources.
      Thank you very much for your answer!

    61. Hi there

      I’m wondering if you have any contacts to where I could buy a back copy. Looking for a good quality issue 100. Is this something you can help me with?

      Comment by Andy on 19 September, 2016 at 1:55 pm
    62. Really the best place to buy IT back issues is eBay. http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_odkw=international+times&_osacat=0&ssPageName=GSTL&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313.TR2.TRC0.A0.H0.Xinternational+times+100.TRS0&_nkw=international+times+100&_sacat=0 They have an issue 100 for sale at that link. x

    63. What does the B stand for in BIT?

      Comment by M.Casey on 11 January, 2017 at 5:54 pm
    64. As I recall it, it’s not an acronym at all. It was called BIT because that’s the smallest piece of information that could be fed into a computer.

      If we wanted to use an image of one of your pages in a newspaper how would we go about this? Is there a fee to use a page like this?

    72. If you give us a credit and a link to our web page http://internationaltimes.it For original credited artworks. That would be fine. What are you thinking of using them for?

    73. Dear Editor,

      I am working on a project relating to the impact of the underground press between 1966, and 74/75. I have tried sending this to two email addresses found on this site, but they bounced back.

      I wanted to know where the archive for IT is currently located, and if it’s accessible for research purposes. I also wanted to know if the archive contains any letters from the public around this period, as this is the kind of thing I would love to take a look at.

      Thanks so much for your help,

    75. Dear IT,

      my name is Francesco Tabarelli.
      I’m making a documentary film entitled “The sons of wonder – The Italian beat generation.”
      The film talks about young italian poets in the mid-sixties and the italian underground scene.
      I saw your archive I find it incredible.
      I’d like to use some of the IT pages in the film for describe the international scene.
      I’m here to ask, if it’s possible, the permission to use those materials.
      Specifically, I’m interested in some of the pages from the editions between 1966 and 1970.


      Thank you

      Comment by Francesco Tabarelli on 6 November, 2017 at 2:31 am
    76. That’s Great Franccesco sounds very interesting. You are welcome to use the archive as long as you give the archive and our website a credit. You can always email us at [email protected] With very best wishes to you.

    77. dear Charlotte Roundhouse in the early 70s I was in a jazz and poetry group called Poetsdoos (same name as the small mag I made and published). In 70/71 we performed at a benefit gig in the Chalk Farm Roundhouse (for Release? can’t remember). We were the unknowns on a bill of star rock names and performed to the largest crowd we’d ever played to – and held our own I insist.
      I remember The Roundhouse when it was known as Centre 42 and devoted to bringing the arts – via the trade Union movement and named after a ‘clause 42’ at a TUC conference – to a wider audience. The playwright Arnold Wesker and my friend Bill Holdsworth were prime movers. In the early days of IT I submitted poetry and prose but was always rejected. Since 2o15 IT has been publishing me from time to time. PS. I saw a rock version of Othello ‘Catch my Soul’ at the Roundhouse. Jeff Cloves

    80. Greetings!

      I am a Percussive Finger-Style Acoustic Guitar Player and a Singer-Songwriter.

      My journey as a solo artist started 5 years ago in 2013 when I uploaded my first ever original song on YouTube called ‘Dear Mother’. It gained a bit of attention from people around the world and got shared by few big magazines & celebrities too including Kaki King & Dave Stewart. Since then I have given solo performances at many big festivals in India & Abroad which includes

      The NAMM Show, Los Angeles, California
      Zihuatanejo International Guitar Festival, Mexico
      Bacardi NH7 Weekender, Pune
      TEDxGateway, Mumbai
      Thomso, IIT Roorkee
      Pearl BITS Pilani, Hyderabad
      Stage 42
      Sonder Rus, Mysore
      Festember, NIT Trichy
      Lakme Fashion Week
      and many more…

      Lately, I have been focusing more on my original music and now I am independently releasing my Debut Album titled ‘Mix Mood’ on 15th May 2018. It contains 16 Original tracks (8 instrumental & 8 with lyrics) which depict my journey so far as a solo artist. The songs range from slow to medium to a fast pace of various subjects/matters which are arranged with solo guitar, electronic production with guitars & full band, and they pretty much fit all the moods, hence the title. I have attached a private link to one of the songs from the Album called ‘Stabilize’ for your viewing. I will be releasing this video along with the album on 15th May.

      I request you to please have a listen and if you feel that this music has some kind of potential or impact then please do let me know in what ways we can get associated in pushing it further.

      I would highly appreciate any kind of support or assistance from your end.

      Here is the private link to ‘Stabilize’ video: https://youtu.be/ygFRGnP0ifo

      (This is the solo percussive fingerstyle guitar version of the song but the album features the Full band Studio Version with Electronic Drums, Acoustic Guitar & Violin. This video also features a snippet of the studio version in the end.)

      I can even provide you the full Album for review if you are interested.

      I look forward to your positive consideration.

      Thank you

    86. I used to work as a delivery driver for International Times in the early 70’s?
      Dropping off papers at all the news agents around the East End of London.
      We also used to deliver the first editions of Time Out
      One week they had been let down on a round & asked me to do it, it was around Amsterdam!!
      We also had some very rude cartoon news papers which the customs at Dover were very interested in.
      The customs stripped my air filter etc on the way back looking for drugs but didn’t find any.
      I also went to the Anti University of London in Brick Lane, Shoreditch E1,
      where I met Yoko Ono & some other writers.
      Yoko ran a course on previous lives from her & Johns home in Regents Park.
      I went there for a cup of tea there once & had a bit of trouble driving home as my skull lifted off as I drove round Piccadilly.
      unaware that I had been dosed with mescaline or something….

    101. Hello Team IT,

      My name is Justin from Reelgood. I’m writing you this email as I recently stumbled across this resource page https://internationaltimes.it/free-movies-online/ and noticed that it have mentioned several film-related resources.

      In case you’re unfamiliar with us, Reelgood is a 100% free streaming guide that offers a wide range of movies and TV shows. We also gives users a personalized view where they can see all of the shows available to them from different streaming services in one place.

      If it’s not too much of a bother, could you please consider including Reelgood (https://reelgood.com/movies/source/free) on this list of resources? We think it would make a great addition to the list and would be a helpful resource for your audience. 😇

      Let me know what you think. Hope you find us useful!

      Take care,

      Justin Rabago
