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.

‘three into wonderfull’ digitally re-mastered by Jon Hiseman, presents a cross section of the Westbrook Trio’s recordings over three decades. The selection includes original songs by Kate and Mike Westbrook, settings of European poetry, and jazz standards. There are highlights from two early albums, A Little Westbrook Music and Love For Sale, tracks previously unavailable on CD. There are tracks from the more recent Good Friday 1663 and from L’Ascenseur/The Lift, as well as new recording.
At the heart of the album is previously un–released material from the mid 90’s, which includes some of the Trio’s finest performances on record, notably a remarkable 16 minute version of their classic Traurig aber falsch (Sad but untrue).
