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.

Brit Floyd and tribute bands

Jon doesn't like tribute bands but I sometimes do.I've seen Hoaxwind twice, and they do a pretty fair job of things. Oddly, Hawkwind also run their own trib, Technicians of Spaceship Hawkwind, in which several current members of Hawkwind have taken part, including Dave Brock, which I suppose raises the question of whether they're actually a trib or not.

There's no doubt that Brit Floyd are a tribute band, though.

The exuberant style of the guy on keyboards reminds me of Jean Michel Jarre! Anyway, perhaps it's nice for youngsters to get a taste of a Floyd-type occasion...

Incidently, the ABITW performed above is the instrumental.
