TEENSET Vol. 5, #3 (Chicago: March 1969).

Contains "Zappa's Freaks: A Bizarre Business" by Dave Swaney (5pp.), featuring a full-page colour photograph of Frank Zappa + b/w photos of The GTOs, Wildman Fischer, the Mothers and Alice Cooper.

This issue is also notable for the inclusion of an Operation Mindfuck article on the Illuminati, with images depicting members of The Beatles, Jackie Kennedy, Richard Nixon and others as puppets manipulated by "The Most Sinister, Evil, Subversive Conspiracy in the World". Credited to 'Sandra Glass', the story was actually written by Robert Shea and cites its main source as "a black-bearded anarchist named Simon" ('Simon Moon' was one of Robert Anton Wilson's pen names and later appeared as a character in the Illuminatus! Trilogy). Operation Mindfuck was first developed by Kerry Thornley, Greg Hill, Shea and Wilson in 1968 to parody the then-fashionable JFK conspiracy theories of Jim Garrison, who believed that Thornley was involved.

Also: Watts militants; country rock, with colour photographs of Nudie and his clothes; witchcraft; the New Morality (the front cover "is a parody of the 'Two Virgins' album cover"); rock writers (Jerry Hopkins, Tom Nolan, Robert Christgau et al); an interview with Jackie Lomax; reviews of 'Bullitt' and 'The Killing of Sister George'; more.

The last issue under the title of Teenset (its name on the front cover is followed by a question mark, symbolising the magazine's attempt to renew itself). From the following issue on it was titled Aum.

Very Good.
