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.

Almost Xmas, the year is almost over and it’s been one hell of a roller coaster ride. Having said all this, I can’t think of a better way to finish the year off than with the Future Publishing Fanpack release of Journey to the Centre of the Earth and a wonderful tour of South America.
Starting with the two weeks in Chile, Argentina and Brazil, it was probably one of the hardest two weeks I’ve ever done on the road, but undoubtedly one of the most rewarding.
We did three different shows over the two week period and here is a brief resume of what happened.
We flew from Heathrow on Saturday the 17th and landed in Sao Paulo on Sunday 18th in the morning. We were late arriving, due to a delay at Heathrow, (no surprise there), which meant we missed our connection to Porto Alegre, but due to wonderful organisation from our agent down there, we were all transferred to another flight without a hitch.

From the airport in Porto Alegre we drove to the hotel and checked in and a few hours later after showering, (yes we do shower), we all went off to a theatre in Novo Hamburgo, about an hour and a half’s drive away to check that all the equipment had arrived, and thankfully it had, and all in one piece too.
