  • expost: "Unfriendly Relations," Berkeley Tribe, v. 5 n.19 (issue #99) (June 11-18, 1971), p. 10: narrates a naked brother onstage before the New Riders started, getting hassled by "rent-a-pig" and someone else before they got him dressed. He appeared again as the Riders were playing, and "rent-a-pig" got help from a full-blown "uniformed, helmeted porkchop", and they busted him right in front of the stage as folks were obliviously dancing, and the band played on. In classic Berkeley vs. SF fashion, the author excoriates "the individuals [who] decided it was easier to think of their momentary titillations than our common oppression".
