Wot's this? Our mythical hero, Philm Freax, rumored to be an alter ego of Phil Franks, was running round in the 60's and 70's smack in the middle of a tangle of soon to be musical giants, movie stars, celebrities and hippie freaks. Some of these pics were originally shot for Rolling Stone, Friends, Frendz or other UK underground papers but much of what's here is unpublished. Philm is pulling old negatives out of boxes still and a lot of what's here is just the tip of the iceberg.
We're listing some things here that are not yet online and we aren't sure when they will be. There's likely to be a lot more eventually uncovered than what you see listed so far. Meanwhile Philm has been back at it in the summer of 1996, shooting new features on old mates Dave Brock and Nik Turner. Inquiries about publication, prints, and any re-use of these images should be directed to Phil Franks.
What's in Philm's Archives?
