A complete set of Fraser Clark's self-published magazine in which he advocated a new hybrid form of hippy, or 'zippy', defined as "60s Hippy + Technoperson", someone who combined "a psychedelic attitude to Life" while embracing New Age consciousness and technology, specifically electronic dance music such as acid house and techno. His opening editorial stated that its aim was to "pull together all the political and mystic strands which have emerged or established themselves in our Culture since the 60s…", and that (in an analogue anticipation of the internet) "100 quarterly volumes are planned, to build, by the year 2000, into the greatest databank of wisdom in human history. Bible included."

Clark later co-founded the underground club Megatripolis, which promoted trance music, provided a focal point for the Zippy movement, and helped popularise cyberculture. He also appeared in the 'Here Come the Zippies!' issue of Wired magazine (May 1994).

#13/14) Double 'Evolution' issue. Clark subtitled his magazine Evolution in an attempt to instil the acid house scene with the hippy ethos, and this issue shows the strongest influence yet of the Scooby Doobies design team, who had recently begun working for Epi and infused it with the psychedelic art of rave culture. Includes interviews with Michael Eavis and Sunrise/Back to the Future acid house promoter, Tony Colston-Hayter. The latter evaded imprisonment in 1989 for organising Britain's biggest ever illegal Acid Party by claiming that he issued membership cards for Sunrise and that it was a private party; in 2014 he was jailed for hacking several banks in London.

Issue #3 slightly rubbed and worn, o/w all issues Very Good plus to Fine. Both black and blue cover colour variants of first issue included.

A rare complete run of a magazine that offered a gathering place and voice for those who rejected Thatcherism, espoused hippy values and openly embraced the full panoply of New Age culture, from paganism, rave, acid house and the Free Festival Movement to Chaos Theory, entheogenic drugs and new technology.
