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: Jefferson Starship Set To Release Live Four-CD Set

It’s a very cool time for fans of the Jefferson Starship. Back in 2009 at the ‘Roswell UFO Parade & Festival’, the band, along with the likes of Grateful Dead keyboardist Tom Constanten, among others, performed a sci-fi concert at Pearson Auditorium in honor of the parade, also acting as the ‘Grand Martians’ for that year.

The concert was fully filmed and recorded, filled with many of the great hits such as ‘White Rabbit’ and ‘Somebody To Love,’ which was No. 80 in our countdown of the Top 100 Classic Rock Songs. The band also provided a special program of science fiction-themed compositions and records that were never before heard nor released!

And now, with many thanks from fans, Gonzo Multimedia is releasing the entire concert as a four-CD box set. Of course, the Roswell Parade was a perfect atmosphere for them. The band has been riding the science fiction wave for quite some time, ever since the their first album back in 1971, ‘Blows Against The Empire’ was nominated for the prestigious Hugo Award.
