Abbie Hoffman interviewed by Steve Kraus for EVO (1971)
I went to see and interview Abbie equipped with biggie cans of Miller’s and butter flavored pretzels. The great man of the new American Revolution did not exactly refuse to be interviewed otherwise, but did allow that the cans of Miller’s would be highly welcome. So there you are, your unfaithful reporter, Abbie, his nose swollen and pudgy and taped up and he can’t breathe through it, and his lady Anita, notorious authoress, seven months pregnant, they are going to call the kid America, they have an apartment which is simply beautiful which they built themselves on the roof of a factory building not far from Union Square, they call each other Babe and seem very much in love after being together four or five years, they took each into a union you can call marriage if you wish at a ceremony in Central Park, how about that?
Open City (1967)
We interviewed the new H.P. Lovecraft rock group, comprised of Dave Michaels, George Edwards, Mike Tegza, Jerry McGeorge and Tony Cavallari last Friday, during a lull in their traditional fan mag talks and tapings for the “Groovy” show. We discussed Lovecraft’s first U.S. tour, their relationships with the fuzz as long-haired musicians, their starving beginnings, their place in the “Pop” scheme and—of course—their music, currently available on their first Philips album and single, “Wayfaring Stranger.”
