Occult Stalinist Bob Parks, figurehead of the secretive cult presently sweeping the London docklands area brings along two ‘guests’ to the studio: Stephen Micalef, poet and early contributor to the punk fanzine Sniffin’ Glue, and Pablo Behrens, film director/producer of Adrift in Soho. Parks continues to exert his influence with extended mystical monologues. It would seem that Behrens plans to film Bob in Cambodia with reference to mass psychosis and Bob’s dead mother playing the part of Kurtz (Heart of Darkness).
