Whatever attention the ULA got was due to our initial rebel/outlaw image. An image which was somewhat undercut when we finally got a website that unintentionally presented the "literary revolution" as quirky and goofy. We were better off as a mystery, offstage, seldom seen.
Part of being an outlaw is not compromising with anybody. In the 60's the Hells Angels beat up San Fran hippie anti-war protestors-- which made the protestors even more want to hang around with them. Why? Street cred.
The only thing the ULA had going for it was its street cred. Any attempt to accommodate the system weakened that credibility. You don't adjust to the other guy. You stay secure in your position and let them adjust to you.
The toughest, wildest, craziest, most balls-to-the-wall writers group ever seen. That's what the ULA needed to be.
