BLACK LEATHER LUCIFER presents revelatory texts on the occult, mind-altering, homo-erotic, synaesthetic and pop-culture tropes to be found within such classic underground films as Anger's Fireworks, Inauguration Of The Pleasure Dome, Scorpio Rising, Kustom Kar Kommandos, Invocation Of My Demon Brother, and Lucifer Rising. It includes a complete filmography, and is illustrated with over 50 illuminating photographic images, including 16 in stunning full colour.
