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.

Hawkwind's Dave Brock at Sidmouth Folk Week

Graham writes....

I've never been much of a fan of Sidmouth Folk Week (Formerly Sidmouth Folk Festival) but when I heard that Dave Brock and Huw Lloyd-Langton were playing there, I was quite keen on going to check it out.

On the day of the event I went out to my car - and found it wouldn't start!

Unable to drive there, and not having enough time to get there by public transport, I abandoned my plans and just hoped that footage would appear on Youtube.

Well, happily it has. "Hurry on Sundown" is here -

and what I think is the whole set (or most of it) - including "Hurry on Sundown" - is here:

The seagulls will remind some Hawkwind fans of "The Demented Man" from the "Warrior" album! I think the set is pretty good, although I still prefer my Hawkwind to be amplified. Preferably over-amplified, even.
