Even this golden age slowly drew to a close, and the hippie scene be- gan to succumb to the cancerous growths of hard drugs and manipula- tion by the world’s political leaders. Today, Idris’ son Adem is the owner of the Pudding Shop. He has changed it into a self-service restaurant with a neon sign over the door that oﬀers fairly good, albeit relatively pricey, Turkish fare and lightning-fast service. The only reminder of the good old days are the numerous newspaper clippings and yellow- ing photographs that grace the walls, and of course the name familiar to everybody. Everything else belongs to a bygone era. Today, probably nobody knows who the author of one of the Pudding Shop bulletin board’s most well-known posts – an open letter from Megan to Mal- colm in which she asked for his forgiveness and apologised for “the business down in Greece” – really was. And today, does it even matter what happened down in Greece or who this Megan was? Of course it doesn’t. What matters is that every now and then we remember those times when love, music and youth merged to become a force, the likes of which the world hasn’t seen since, a force that today can only be known by one short, nostalgic name: The Sixties!
