First published in 1982 as part of the Crass record album Christ: The Album, Penny Rimbaud's The Last of the Hippies is a fiery anarchist polemic centered on the story of his friend, Phil Russell aka Wally Hope, who was murdered by the State while incarcerated in a mental institution. Wally Hope was a visionary and a freethinker, whose life had a profound influence on many in the culture of the UK Underground and beyond. He was an important figure in what may loosely be described as the organization of the Windsor Free Festival from 1972 to 1974, and provided the impetus for the embryonic Stonehenge Free Festival. Wally was arrested and incarcerated in a mental institution after having been found in possession of a small amount of LSD. He was later released, and subsequently died. The official verdict was that Russell committed suicide, although Rimbaud uncovered strong evidence that he was murdered. The Last of the Hippies fast became the seminal text of what was then known as anarcho-punk and which later blossomed into the antiglobalization movement. This revised edition comes complete with a new introduction in which Rimbaud questions some of the premises that he laid down in the original.
