Hello friend,

As a valued former subscriber to Word Magazine I thought you'd want to know that "Magic" Alex Gold and I are rejuvenating the now legendary Word In Your Ear shows with a gig at the Lexington on Tuesday, December 4th.
The headliners on the night will be Skinny Lister, the band whose act stopped the show when they appeared down the bill from the Blockheads at our evening in June. 
If you were there you'll know that they have an act like no other. It's notable not just for Dan Heptinstall's ability to put a pop spin on the sea shanty, not merely for the rousing, foot-stomping attack of their five-man line-up, nor for the frisky dance steps of Lorna Thomas, but for an all-encompassing determination to entertain that's all too rare. On the night they'll be playing material from their Sunday Best album Forge and Flagon, some new songs and a few seasonal surprises. 
In our determination to put together a show which offers variety and value for money we'll soon be announcing further turns, both musical and spoken word. I'll be MC-ing and spinning the platters that matter in my amazing 1971 Annus Mirabilis disco.
Please come along. If you book now you can get a ticket for £12, which is three pounds less than you'll have to pay when we make them available to the wider public. If you came in the past you'll know what special evenings they could be. If you come to this one you'll be helping to keep some of the spirit of Word alive and having a great evening with friends into the bargain. Which is what it is.

You can purchase tickets for the show here: Please do come and join us.
Yours sincerely
David Hepworth

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.
