And the UK urban revolutionaries, our reply to Weatherman and self
styled the 'Angry Brigade' was also known (when on trial in 1971-2) as
The Stoke Newington Eight, from the inner London suburb where they lived
and made their bombs. I think the defendants in the Oz Trial (1971, UK's
the  longest censorship trial, vs. the underground press) were The Oz

creation, I suppose the name here referred only to the magazine's title.
