Dr. Timothy Leary ‎– "The Final Taboo" (Trance Port Tapes ‎– trance 7) 1984



Ha Ha Haaaa, drugs eh?

Breaking the Final Taboo,I can think of a few more final taboo's that still cannot be broken,is a lecture given by Timothy Leary at a club in Huntington Beach, California, in June, 1980.The speech is a great compilation of his ideas and his personal story. He touches upon his usual topics of authorities, evolution, turning-on, and migration. While he does,as usual, talk about drugs quite a bit, he doesn't go into too much detail about LSD or a typical LSD experience(Yawn). He does however talk a bit about a new drug (at the time), ecstasy, or as he calls it "XTC",or as I call it the destroyer of modern music and counter culture.Timothy Leary,however, is as witty and eloquent  as ever in this recording. He rolls-off the puns as well as any professional stand-up comedian,and has a very willing and 'loyal contingent of dopers' rolling around in the aisles.He missed his real vocation I reckon.

Brilliant, got it Jonny, thanks! ps Jandek has just gone 5 up as he's just released another one, the prolific mad bastard

I'll get back to Jandek at the end of the year, so there may well be another 5 or 6 albums released by then. I suspect that even after he's dead there will be continued releases on Corwood......if he's not dead already?
