GARY BYRD & THE GB EXPERIENCE FEAT. STEVIE WONDER: THE CROWN

One of the most phenomenal pieces of music ever made. in 1983 I bet a schoolfriend I could memorise all 10 minutes and 35 seconds of the lyrics to this. Even though I didn’t understand what it was all about at the time, I won. If you’ve never heard this before, check it out – truly mindblowing!

GEMS FROM THE ARCHIVES: LATE 80S ACID MIX


Here’s a mix I put together a while back of many of the tunes from that amazing 1986-1988 era that first got me into black/ dance music in a big way. Pure nostalgia that will doubtless evoke fond memories in anyone that was around in those days.

All off vinyl and each mix comes in at just under 45 minutes, meaning it was originally done for cassette!

GOOD VIBRATIONS PODCAST, VOL. 46: CHRIS SPIVEY, ROUND 3


** CONTAINS EXPLICIT LANGUAGE (IT’S CHRIS SPIVEY, FFS!) **

(The interview emerged with a persistent background crackle which was not audible during the time of recording. If anyone out there is able to clean up the audio to lose the buzz, therefore, but retain the voices, their assistance would be very much appreciated!)

British researcher and journalist Chris Spivey returns for his third Good Vibrations appearance. In recent months, Chris has built up a monumental following off the back of his articles demonstrating that the Woolwich/ Lee Rigby incident of May 2013 was a government-orchestrated hoax using actors, and cannot possibly have happened the way the mainstream media have reported it. Chris recaps on some of the main points, and on the effect his findings have had.

Specifically, he recounts the details of his recent 1.30am arrest and the intrusion upon his family at the hands of a group of heavy-handed police thugs who subsequently stole two of his computers. 

Chris goes on to expose the latest outrageous stunt staged along similar lines – the video allegedly showing the ‘beheading’ of the US journalist James Foley at the hands of ‘Islamic terrorists’ in Iraq. This, he maintains, is the latest in a long line of psy-ops involving actors that you would have to be in a heavy state of naivety or denial to not be able to see for what it is. 

A line was crossed when the police issued a warning to UK citizens that anyone watching or sharing the video could be arrested. This makes thinking for yourself now an official crime, and is a sign of where they want to take society unless we put a stop to it. Chris finishes by reflecting on how vast numbers of people are finally waking up to the realities that are staring them in the face, versus the controllers’ desperation to enforce their agenda, and offers some tips on what people can do to get involved in the process of preserving human freedom.

GOOD VIBRATIONS PODCAST, VOL. 45: MIKE ANGEL

** Contains explicit language**


The dark side of the music business comes under scrutiny again as British artist manager, producer, and all-round industry veteran Mike Angel guests. Mike shares some of his personal experiences with demonology and the dark occult, and touches on the part it has always played in the entertainment business. 

He goes on to disagree with the findings of many current researchers, however, (myself included), including the idea that artists such as Jay-Z place occult symbols into videos and live shows under instruction from their Satanic paymasters, and the suggestion that many A-list artists have been subjected to mind control techniques. In Mike’s estimation, the corporate industry machine is motivated by pure greed, and much of what gets interpreted as occult symbolism is cynically placed there to generate controversy, attention, and ultimately profit. He also argues that much of the erratic and bizarre behaviour of A-list artists may not be the result of mind control abuse, but is simply the inevitable result of a lifetime lived in the public spotlight, and all the pressures and restrictions on personal freedom that come with it.

This is not to say that occult practices aren’t present in the industry however, he suggests – including blood sacrifices – and to write these off as pure ‘conspiracy theory’ is to be naive. We speculate on how many artists who discover the true nature of what they’ve got involved with when signing a pact with the industry, wish they could go back to a life of obscurity and freedom. They never can, because once you sign up, you sign up for life.

Mike addresses the incredible fascination that Alesteir Crowley and organisations such as the OTO have held for so many artists through the ages, including the late Peaches Geldof, and we finish by discussing the influence of another notorious occultist, Kenneth Anger, on the careers of Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones.

Other specific artists discussed include Jay-Z, Britney Spears, Nicki Minaj, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and Jimmy Page.
