Future PolyEster Books head honcho Gonzo Macmillan was holidaying in San
Francisco when a teenager. After a chance meeting in a supermarket with a
roadie who worked for Frank Zappa he was invited to a 'happening' at Frank
Zappa's house high in the Hollywood hills and met many leading musicians,
film stars and assorted freaks and innovators including Brian Wilson, Dennis
Hopper and Charles Manson.
One event at that notorious party that forever changed Gonzo's view of
reality was participating in a peyote shamanistic sex ritual with Mia
Farrrow, Anita Pallenberg and the High priest of the Church of Satan Anton
Soon after this event Gonzo moved into Anton Lavey's headquarters the Black
House where he received personal instruction in the satanic arts from the
black pope himself and ordained as a high priest.
In the ensuing years the mystery PolyEster man was always in the right place
at the wrong time.
Scoring walk on parts on all the best films, playing the redneck who shot
Peter Fonda at the end of Easy Rider, the official dealer back stage at
Woodstock who sold the legendary brown acid, a former member of the
notorious cult group the Bran Flakes, and the man who found the marijuana
for Paul Mcartney who got busted going through Japanese customs.
It's been a long strange trip for Gonzo who after many years of partying and
fucking about decided to settle down and open the world's most fucked up
book shop: PolyEster Books in Brunswick Street in Fitzroy where taboos are
broken and censorship laws are held in the contempt that they so richly
PolyEster Books present an array of Books, magazines and videos not found in
the your mainstream Mcdonalds book shop, including drug information, a full
range of Satanic literature, Erotic instructional aids, Sexy t-shirts,
conspiracy theories and political rants of every persuasion.
Too much to do too little time.
