What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

British Jazz Legend Graham Collier Dies.

James Graham Collier (21 February 1937 – 10 September 2011)
Gonzo MD Rob Ayling was saddened to hear that the British jazz composer Graham Collier has passed away. Rob released some of Graham's albums in the ninties as part of the jazzprint label.
Rob said
"It is a very sad day today having heard of the passing of Graham Collier. I was lucky to be able to release some of Graham's outstanding work as part of Jazzprint which was as the name implies the label specialising in Jazz which was distributed by Voiceprint. He was a lovely guy and one of the true greats of British Jazz and his loss is immense. My condolences and thoughts are with his family and friends at this time"
