...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.

CABINET OF CURIOSITIES: Chris Squire stage clothes (Part One)

As regular readers will know, each week we post some item of rock music memorabilia which is vaguely on-topic to a band on Gonzo Multimedia, and leave pictures of it online for all the most fetishistic collectors to salivate over. I don't think that we have ever come close to this, however. These are excerpts from the online catalogue of a Music Memorabilia Auction in Stockport, Summer 2013.
