Juts bought on ebay - and not cheaply - the renowned, notorious school kids' issue of Oz from May 1970. A bunch of school kids were brought in to help edit this monthly alternative paper. And the issue that resulted was prosecuted for obscenity. The Old Bailey trial lasted for almost two months. The three defendants - the editors of Oz, Felix Dennis, Jim Anderson and Richard Neville - were found guilty and imprisoned - where they were famously shorn of their emblematic long hair. The conviction was overturned on appeal.
The nudity on the cover of the issue was part and parcel of the alternative scene of the time. Jimi Hendrix's 'Electric Ladyland' album, with an assembly of naked women on the sleeve, had appeared eighteen months earlier. This was also the era of the distinctly priapic cartoonist Robert Crumb. I am not going to post the Rupert the Bear cartoon which featured so prominently at the trial - it's infantile and not at all respectful of women. But here's another taste of the schoolkids' wizardry.
