voiceover from cd rom:
here I am in Piccadilly Circus. Its 1966 and Im wearing
my electronic time travelling costume which I made especially to go
to the 1960s. I first made this costume so I could come here... cos
I reckoned itd be a really good place to rehearse the songs for
my band, late at night when everybody went home.
I started coming here because I needed to sell my whole series of feature
vibrators in order to pay for my psychoanalysis and I reckoned that
the 60s in London was probably the best place to sell them, but unfortunately
none of the shops would take them and I had better luck in the 1980s.
was also really great to come here after my gruelling psychoanalytic
sessions, and go to some of the pubs, like in Soho, like the French
House and the Colony Rooms and Id always meet some really interesting
I started seeing Lacan I used to wear it to Paris quite a bit, in the
60s, and that was really fun too. Then one time there was a photo of
both of us in a french newspaper article. He refused to continue seeing
me eventually because I took him off to the film set of Mary Poppins...and...I
guess it was his first time travelling trip...and... it was a bit hard
for him to deal with...and especially when he got bitten by the dog.
have to visit quite a few film sets of the past for my research work
at the Institute and we spent some time investigating the making of
the James Bond films. I was sent to From Russia with Love,
because of my interest in Eastern Europe.
a way I find my visits to the 1960s quite similar to my trips to the
Russian Revolution because, like, in those times theres this amazing
feeling of euphoria and hope for the future, but I guess that may just
be, er, my nostalgic perspective...and in fact it was really crazy,
one time I made a mistake and I wore my 60s costume to the Russian Revolution...I
almost got myself locked up, but I managed to run off and escape and
press my button just in time and get back to the Institute."
