...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
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.

LINK: Fascinating Auburn article...

Read the whole article here

Auburn’s ‘Indian Summer’ consists of ten atmospheric tracks; with Lenten’s compelling vocal leading the listener through a myriad of heartfelt experiences. Lyrics, although tinged with melancholy, are peppered with the seeds of optimism, unashamedly inviting you into the mind and soul of the writer….Marvellous stuff.

Interestingly, each individual track has a dedication contained within the sleeve notes, and also this very interesting quotation:

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!”

Liz Lenten didn’t write that, but one does get the impression that she sure as hell believes in it!

Auburn is:

Max Gilkes – Guitars & piano

Jevon Beaumont – Bass

Pat Garvey – Percussion

Rob Lewis – Cello

The band is also taking the album on tour – and here are the details!
