In one of the most fascinating music-related chats so far, Mark Devlin talks to Matt Sergiou, who runs the blog site Conspiro Media, consisting of many heavily-researched articles on the Hidden Hand in entertainment media. We go back to the early days of the pop charts to discuss the influence of Elvis Presley and The Beatles. Matt goes into great detail regarding the possible mind control of John Lennon, his unconventional relationships with Yoko Ono and Mai Pang, and the strange business of the ‘Paul is dead’ conspiracy theory.
We also address many of the prominent record labels of those early days having links to military and government research activity. Matt examines the role of Dr. Timothy Leary, the ‘father of LSD’ and other social engineers, in moulding the minds of young people. He concludes with the subject of ‘backmasking’, or the placing of backwards subliminal messages into recordings.
