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.

Gonzo's First Book The Trials Of Oz. Published on 40th anniversary of Trial

Gonzo Multimedia have published their first book. It is entitled The Trials of Oz and is written by the noted writer and film director Tony Palmer. Tony attended the trial and made notes during the proceedings of the celebrated trial on Obscenity.
The book which is a detailed account of the trial and what led up to the trial includes contributions from the defendants Richard Neville,Felix Dennis,Jim Anderson and other vetrans of the Oz Obscenity Trial.

The book is published on the fortieth anniversary of  the trial where the editors of Oz magazine were on trial for crimes under the then obscenity law.

It is a fascinating book and one that will attract a large audience who not only remember the trial  but those who have subsequently heard about it in the intervening forty years.
Tony Palmer is a distinguished film director and author with many award winning films to his credit including the TV series and accompanying Book "All You Neded Is Love"
