Genesis: A Hit LP in the Making

Steve Turner, Beat Instrumental, December 1972

He's seriously thinking of making a public statement saying that it was for deep personal religious feelings that he committed the act and then maybe people would become more understanding. Meanwhile customs officials regard him with a degree of suspicion and Hare Krishna devotees pat him on the back and tell him he's already half way to becoming a disciple.
