about

"Crazy daze at Lighting Wizard Studios. I would arrive there in Hornsey after a Pretty Things gig and start experimenting with sounds and songs. Julian and I would roll up some temple balls to smoke and then play. The studio was decked out in Afgan rugs on the floor/walls & was exceedingly comfortable. When I left The Pretty Things I moved into the flat upstairs with my girlfriend Silver and Steve Took, until eventually moving to Notting Hill Gate." –John "Twink" Alder, 2017
