Through the years 1965 to 1967 we follow the author experiencing and living in Europe’s underground. He takes us from the bottom of the insane ward of infamous Wormwood-prison in London to the heights of meeting Allen Ginsberg – one of his great idols – before the seminal event of `65– “The Wholly Communion” at Albert Hall.
He moved across Europe, lived several months in the red-light district of Antwerp, and had his first acid experience in Ibiza and Formentera. When he realized that his girlfriend was pregnant all lightness disappeared from their ecstatic wild life and the existence of an outcast lost all it’s glamour. To make things worse: the army was also after him! From a desperate and failed attempt to be straight and a father he escaped to Guernsey, an island in the English Channel, where he mended his broken body and soul.
– And just in time… for the London of 1967, where he founded the ”Commune One West Hempstead”, took a lot of soul-searching acid trips, designed psychedelic posters and met many outstanding characters, who meanwhile either have died or became very famous.
Brummbaers trip began when he was thrown out of his home, because he invited some social misfits to celebrate Christmas on Earth with him. The book ends four years later with a huge “Christmas on Earth” party in the Olympia-Convention Halls in London, with everybody attending, from Jimi Hendrix to Eric Burdon, the Who, Pink Floyd, and an audience of many thousands.
