I first met Larry in 1967, when he was in the dance troupe Exploding Galaxy.
They would perform free-style dance at the weekly hippie gathering, the UFO Club, in between sets by the Pink Floyd. They helped encourage everyone to ‘freak out’ their dancing style. The Exploding Galaxy were part of a commune which lived in North London and took their name from a painting by Larry of the same name. They were immortalised in the book 99 Balls Pond Road by Jill Drower, one of the communards.
