    Barney Bubbles – Friends With Sleeves Rolled Up 

    Here shared for your viewing delight is a page taken from underground newspaper Friends, featuring a snap taken by photographic legend Phil Franks (the essential silver-salt and cellulose documenter of the happenin’ Grove Gate London underground of the late 60s and early 70s), to whom thanks are given.

    The exposed flesh of witch Nicki was being painted by myself and Barney Bubbles at the time, captured by Phil, and printed in Friends for posterity; a naked flesh canvas to play out our painterly symbolism upon. I am absent from this particular frame, and Barney is darting out-of-sight (as usual), sleeves rolled up in earnest painterly mode. Underneath the photo? Some text about Alex Sanders’ coven, and musings on the dangers of the Ritual of materialising Astaroth.

    First outed in R&M’s seminal ‘The First Barney Show Ever 2001’, now republished here. And lest I forget to mention, another similar but different (and also by Phil) pic of the scene got used by me in an erotically charged mag at around the same time.

    Want more? Did you see this earlier blog entry, where Barney is spotted on video walking through the Friends office, scalpel in hand.

    See you again soon, dear readers.

    Here’s my copy of School Kids Oz #28, currently held in custardy (sic) in some lock-up somewhere. I worked on this issue. Page order is from left to right, top to bottom. Click on a spread to view the pages larger as a slideshow. Want to supersize a spread?: Click ‘View Full Size’ (bottom right) when in slideshow mode and then click on the image again to further magnify. The only limitation is your imagination – Vwwrreee!
