Borkowski and the Press

The publicity and press generated by Archaos and Mark Borkowski played a huge role in Archaos's success. The purple pins will reveal the press stoires which take two forms - firstly stories generated by a good yarn, a great tale, a strange story, a bit of salacious gossip, a secret confidence, an odd anecdote or an outlandish rumour secondly more traditional stories of sex and chainsaws and reviews...........
