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.

"Thom the World poet, is an old mate of mine from way back in my history. Even pre-dating Voiceprint, when I was running "Otter Songs" and Tom's poetry tapes and guest appearances with Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth, Mother Gong are well known and highly regarded. It just felt right to include a daily poem from Thom on our Gonzo blog and when I approached him to do so, he replied with in seconds!!! Thom is a great talent and just wants to spread poetry, light and positive energy across the globe. If we at Gonzo can help him do that - why not? why not indeed!!" (The wondrous poetpic is by Jack McCabe, who I hope forgives me for scribbling all over it with Photoshop)

Moon Midnight (belongs to jazz and your bright spirit)

Here is where  your dreams find anchor,harbor,sanctuary-
your WHATMIGHTBE fantasies projected upon the screen of ruthless WHATIS
Here songs,poems,art and dance are born-in moon wombs full to overflowing
Here is where cats sit and sleep and dream of flying fish
World goes quiet as a Library(of Akashic Records
Silence slips between shadows and questions Light
You remember EVERY thing!Daily domestic doings merge,surreal
with creatures peopled from imaginings.Beginnings begin!
Release all pasts into the wind and starry skies.BEAM BRIGHT &BRILLIANT!
Here ALL IS POSSIBLE! You can fly (in your dreams-
this is where it all begins..Close your eyes-and they are opened again...
