I Drilled A Hole In My Head To Stay High Forever (Talk)

Legendary psychedelic experimenter Joey Mellen will be making a rare appearance at MOTH CLUB to discuss his experiences with psychedelics, the 60’s UK psychedelic counter-culture, higher consciousness and tell the story of “how I came to drill a hole in my head to get permanently high.”

Joey Mellen's memoir "Bore Hole" has achieved a legendary status that reaches far beyond the 500 long-vanished copies he printed in 1970. It has been hailed as the blueprint for the next step in human evolution, denounced as a tragic example of the dangers of drug experimentation, and retold endlessly as an irresistible anecdote of high craziness. It has become the ne plus ultra of consciousness expansion, the extreme high water mark of the psychedelic sixties.

Joey will be signing the deluxe re-print will be on sale on the night. 

Loose Bones Radio will be collaborating with DEEPER INTO MOVIES for a 1hr audio-visual psych fest before the talk.
