...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
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.

MICHAEL DES BARRES AT SXSW


Michael spent last week at the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas, where he played a set at the Molotov on March 13th.
The band this time included Scrote on guitar, Ken Stringfellow on keyboard, Matt Harris on bass and Branden Harper on drums.
He was also joined on stage by special guest Stevie Salas, who was a member of Michael’s band Vince Lightning and The Spectaculars back in the mid-90s.
Here are some reviews:
austinchronicle.com“Veteran rocker / actor Michael Des Barres provided an appropriate climax with a set of cocky, crunchy rock & roll that celebrated decadence past and the future with a wink and a power chord.”
popdose.com“Rolling in to “Carnaby Street”, his rock manifesto and title track for his latest album, the Marquis blew our hair back with a short but intense (and loud!) set.”
meanwhile blog“Simply put, Michael Des Barres is a motherf***ing rock star. And, this is why he was the highlight of SXSW 2013 Day Two.”
For a full recap of the week’s events, check out Kitty’s report on mdbimmedia.com.
