VIDEO: SPEAKER PANEL FROM THE GLASTONBURY SYMPOSIUM 2016

The video of the Saturday speaker panel from this Summer’s Glastonbury Symposium has finally emerged! I found myself making a few contributions, regarding the suspicious death of Prince, sound frequencies, cosmic numerology, and then, at 39.12, it’s the F word - Flat!  I fought a bit of a lone battle on this one, but here’s how it went down anyway.

AUDIO: MD GUESTS ON SOFIA SMALLSTORM'S ABOUT THE SKY PODCAST

Of the massive amount of radio interviews I've done around my book this year, this one is possibly the most interesting, as the host, Sofia Smallstorm, asked some challenging and far-reaching questions. As a result, I got deep into areas of spiritual law, metaphysics and the occult which I don't normally get to discuss. We go deep!

ANNOUNCING THE OPEN MINDS 2017 CONFERENCE, IRELAND, FEBRUARY 2017


Very excited to break the news of an awesome conference event happening in Waterford, Ireland, in February. I'm happy to be part of a lively and extremely varied all-weekend bill, featuring some great speakers on a diverse range of important subjects.

Full programme and booking information on this link - https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/open-minds-ireland-conference-2017-tickets-29202985917

The all-weekend ticket prices offer great value for such a packed bill of great information and speakers. It would really help the organisers out with the unavoidable operating costs if anyone who knows they’re able to attend could show their support by purchasing these as soon as possible.

Get there if you can!

GOOD VIBRATIONS PODCAST, VOL. 97: NINO 2 1 0 - ESTABLISHMENT LINKS IN PUNK & NEW WAVE



Following on from similar studies of alternative genres, the Punk & New Wave scene of both the US and UK, from the 1970s onwards, comes under Volume 97’s spotlight. Music fan-turned-independent researcher Nino Teauoneaux reveals endless unsettling links between what is generally thought of as a grass-roots scene powered by youthful working-class angst, and family connections through the genre’s key players into the worlds of politics, academia, aristocracy and military-intelligence.

Social movements like Communism and Cultural Marxism rub shoulders with the world of the dark occult, calling into question the authenticity of this entire scene. We examine one family in particular, the Copelands; father Miles was a career CIA officer, and his three sons each went to work in the music industry, gaining huge control over these newly-emerging genres. We also discuss the massively out-of-proportion ratio of Jews active in the punk scene, a factor always bound to be controversial, but undeniable in fact.

GOOD VIBRATIONS PODCAST, VOL. 96: MIKE WILLIAMS - WILLIAM SHEPHERD IS PAUL McCARTNEY

P1:



P2:



Radio host, writer and researcher Mike Williams, known as The Sage of Quay, features in this two-hour return to the replacement of the real James Paul McCartney back in 1966 with a double who has been impersonating him ever since. This individual is William Shepherd, (not Campbell, as frequently claimed,) a trained musician, actor and freemason also known by the nickname 'Billy Shears.'

Mike gives his observations on the book 'The Memoirs Of Billy Shears', which purports to be the confessional auto-biography of Shepherd, but embellished with enough fictional elements for it to be passed off as a 'novel'  to avoid the legal minefield that would occur were the replacement to go on the official record. Mike's comments build on those he put forward in an equally comprehensive podcast interview with Sofia Smallstorm recently, and it's recommended that listeners really wanting to understand this subject area fully, listen to that interview first in order to get the full background. It's available here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QV39RmErX14

Mike observes that the level of knowledge of The Beatles' world in the 1960s, and the breaking-down of the real meaning behind so many of their ambiguous lyrics, can only have come from someone on the inside, giving credibility to many of the book's claims. The Beatles deliberately placed hundreds of symbolic clues into their music and imagery, giving the public the opportunity to understand the nature of the switch all along.

While all doubt has now been removed that the person the world has thought of as 'Paul McCartney' for the past half a century is really William Shepherd, one highly pertinent question remains; what happened to the real Paul, and was his death on September 11th of 1966 really a tragic accident that nobody could have foreseen, or something altogether more sinister? And what further revelations might we expect upon the death of Billy Shears, now aged 79?

This interview is split into two parts for the convenience of those who like to burn the audio to CD, like myself. Be sure to check out Part 2, which can be found here: https://soundcloud.com/mark-devlin/good-vibrations-podcast-vol-96-mike-williams-re-pid-p2

THROWBACK THURSDAY: THE FIRST MOBO AWARDS, 1996

Some audio from the very first MOBO Awards held at the New Connaught Rooms in London in November 1996, where I chatted with Blak Twang and Soul II Soul's Jazzie B. For the first couple of years this event had a bit of integrity and value, but very quickly (and predictably) turned into a soulless corporate glitz-fest which lost all of its original intent, leading to scenarios like Ed Sheeran receiving three 'black music award' nominations by 2012.
