"Strongly identified as part of the underground press, it was the subject of two celebrated obscenity trials, one in Australia in 1964 and the other in the UK
in 1971. On both occasions the magazine's editors were acquitted on appeal after initially being found guilty and sentenced to harsh jail terms."

Edited by Richard Neville - in association with Jim Anderson and (later) Felix Davis - contributors included Germaine Greer; designer, Martin Sharp; filmmaker, Phillipe Mora; photographer, Robert Whitaker; and one Richard Branson, now chairman of Virgin Media.
