Gonzo Multimedia Merrell Fankhauser : The Best Of -2cd- (US,1962-2011)****+**°
I always missed all the occasions of being able to check out better, all the Merrell Fankhauser reisues, although I know he made there a kind of legendary status in the psychedelic milieu, with his albums of Mu, or Faparadolky, or some of his solo albums with his exotic looks, as if he is abducted by alienating force taking him just a few beams out of the spectrum of earth and with his colourful Hawaii looks. I still remember those days when his albums were re-released, just like the Eben Abez releases, they only gave me the slight idea that they both must be the kind of outsider hippies before they even existed, and then remained one step away from them.
...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.
