Story released in SID'S PLACE book.

This rock opera was too long to perform in one show.

Sometimes the band, LOTUS featuring Richard Del Connor "Dickie Dare," would perform the first half, UNDERGROUND, and sometimes they would include songs from the second half, IN VIOLENCE.

The two halves of this rock opera were combined to create the book, SID'S PLACE, by The Hippy Coyote.Some of the lyrics of the original rock opera are included in the book, SID'S PLACE.
