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.

Christmas music can lift your heart, move you to tears and be a genuinely spiritual experience. On the other hand it can make you want to throw up! We have asked a whole slew of Gonzofolk for their top five favourite Christmas songs (secular, sacred or both), and will be printing a list, and showing a video every day until after Christmas.

The trouble is that I didn't really think this through, and I both didn't start early enough and asked too many people, so despite it being Boxing Day (and tomorrow being um.... thursday) the series will continue for a few more days...

Today we hear from Stuart Nicholson from Galahad:

1.       I Believe in Father Christmas - Greg Lake – Used to do this one at Xmas gigs!
2.       A Spaceman Came Travelling – Chris De Burgh – Bit fluffy but I like it..
3.       A Fairytale of New York – The Pogues and much missed Kirsty MacColl
4.       Winter Wonderland – Various
5.       Snowbound – Genesis – Not strictly a Xmas song but full of Xmas/wintery imagery
