Brian Barritt was born in Coventry in 1934. Over the years he has been a sailor, soldier, krautrocker, hippy and punk – an adventurer with 50 years experience in psychedelics and expanded consciousness. He hitched to India in the mid 60′s and accompanied Timothy Leary during his exile from America in Algeria and Switzerland in the early 70′s. He took the producer Youth under his wing in the late 70′s, during the early days of Killing Joke, and was later taken under Youth’s wing in the early days of Acid House. His psychedelic autobiography, The Road of Excess, was published in 1998.
He currently lives in Battersea, South London, with a squirrel.
