...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.

THOM THE WORLD POET: The Daily Poem


Rob Ayling writes: 

"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)


ONE HUMAN BEING/ADD GUITAR/ORIGINAL SONGS
you have seen Donovan/Kris Kristofferson/Leonard Cohen/Paul Simon /Bob Dylan
wondered how Joan Baez/Judy Collins/could hold your attention
with just a voice/a guitar/songs and a smile
Joe Rossi joined Jeremy at Full English Cafe last night
Last Saturday enjoyed Peggy Wright.Simple as harmonies of truth/heart and mind
stars blazed their own kind of light..I have enjoyed Robbie Greig and James Clinton
wondered why folk need a band-all it takes is the spark of one human being
to sing with the sky ,moon and land.Something about song -
words that rhyme/reassure and confirm-we are human when we hear
and when we beam-it changes everything/simplistic?Yes-but you understand!
Today @Hot Mamas/later on@Kick Butt
Monday night at Metal and Lace-the marriage of words and music will take place
Alchemy will weave a trace of melody.All that we love is a song
Every night,upon another open stage-Charles Darwin is not proved wrong
Evolution rolls on!
