...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.

IN WHICH JON NICKS SOME ARTY PICTURES OF LIZ FROM THE AUBURN FACEBOOK PAGE


I have been a journalist for many years now, and I have even written for the late unlamented News of the World a couple of times and so I have the great traditions of British journalism to uphold.

I have always done my best to uphold them; I have made my excuses and left on more occasions than you could shake a stick at. I have recycled other people's news (albeit usually adding a few bad jokes of my own), and even on these hallowed pages I have been known to post a link to another news story, add a bad pun and call it news.

But until now, there are depths to which I have not sunk. I can truthfully say that neither I, nor anyone else at the Gonzo Daily have ever hacked into anyone's mobile phone account (at least partially because I wouldn't have a clue where to begin doing it - I can't even work my own mobile phone, let alone anyone else's), but today we have hit a new low; we have stolen these two delightfully arty new press pictures from Liz Lenten's Facebook Page.

Why have I sunk to such a low? Well, it is partly because I always try to have an Auburn/Liz Lenten story on a sunday so that I can write bad poetry about it, but also because I think that this guy, who I believe is called Phil Reeve, is an extraordinary photographer. Check out his website and you will see what I mean. I like the way that his stylised pictures are both retro and contemporary at the same time; a bit like Auburn's music. They hark back towards a mythical past that may or may not have actually existed and drag it kicking and screaming into the 21st Century.

I hope that makes sense. It does to me.
