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 reviewed


Review: Tales From The Mothership - Roswell UFO Festival (Jefferson Starship)

Tales From The Mothership - Roswell UFO Festival (Jefferson Starship)
(2010, Bear/2012, Gonzo Multimedia)
There is an annual event that takes place in New Mexico called Roswell UFO Festival. So far nothing new. Is important to note that in 2009 one of these names were the true living legends who are the Jefferson Starship. And the band that took its stake to record a live album. Also nothing new here. Interestingly follows. When traditional line-up joined former members and some guests, like the Grateful Dead keyboardist Tom Constanten vocalist Cathy Richardson or (the same who played the role of Janis Joplin in the Broadway play Love, Janis) presented a concert for mixed music and science fiction not to clash with the environment lived in the city for those days. The entire concert was recorded and beyond the emblematic themes like White Rabbit, Somebody To Love, Volunteers and Wooden Ships, even the time of Jefferson Airplane, was created a special set with issues related to science fiction some of whom played for the first time. Now, to the delight of fans of the band is available in a box with 4 cd's that depict the passage of Jefferson Starship at that festival. Two of the cd's have the concert in its entirety, each with their set. The box is then enriched with two cd's that result from recordings of rehearsals and soundcheck before the show. A true delight for fans with a feeling bootleg rockumentario sharp and a real must.
