    His claims to have killed a man are complete BS. As a journalist myself I can recognize an interview subject like him a mile away. I’m not sure I have an adequate word to describe people like him, but they’re a bane to the journalist’s existence. You leave the interview pissed off at the utter lack of substance that had just been fed to you.

    True, Felix Dennis is a massive self-publicist – viz the tale of how he got a job on Oz after sending in a tape that Richard Neville then gave to the BBC. But he is value for money – as he showed in dropping his trousers for a front page photograph in the FT! (www.magforum.com/2007.htm#den) And get along to one of his poetry readings if you can – the free wine is fantastic.

    Follow the link to hear the Oz story in Rosie Boycott’s Radio 4 feature on the underground press in the UK – if you’re quick – at https://magforum.wordpress.com/2008/04/03/underground-press-on-radio-4/
