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.

HAWKWIND Spring Tour

For a Hawkwind fan, it's always a special moment when the lights go down, and some drones and Dave Brock's synth twitters start proceeding from the darkened stage area.

Now, Hawkwind have confirmed a series of dates in May and June - which presumably will include material from their new album, due out at the end of April.

The ten-date mini-tour covers England (5), Wales (1), Scotland (1), and Ireland (2):

Donnington 26 May (Off The Tracks festival)
Stamford Corn Exchange Theatre, 27 May
Cork - The Pavilion, 28 May
Dublin Button Factory, 29 May
Middlesbro Town Hall, 30 May
Carlisle Sound, 31 May
Buckley Tivoli, 1 June
Edinburgh Queens Hall, 2 June
Holmfirth Picturedrome, 3 June
Southampton - The Brook, 4 June.

Hawkwind fans in the Irish Republic have started getting excited, as it's the first time the Hawks have been over there since 2004.

For ticket sales information, go to the TOUR DATES section of the Hawkwind website.

Anyone really wanting to attend one of these gigs would be well advised to get a ticket in advance, as they're not very big venues, and it's only a small tour anyway. For instance, Southampton Brook is almost always sold out on the night, when Hawkwind are there.

Aditionally, there are two festival dates in August:

Friday 17th Aug - Clumber Park, Near Worksop - Classic Rock Concert.
Fri 24th Aug - Rhythm Festival, Biggleswade.
