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.

NEW MUSIC FROM STEPHEN STILLS (including cover of Iggy)

This is something that you really have to listen to...

Stephen Stills fans can now get a preview of Can’t Get Enough, the upcoming debut album by his blues-rock supergroup The Rides, which also features Kenny Wayne Shepherd and founding Electric Flag keyboardist Barry Goldberg.  The band’s rendition of the Iggy Pop and the Stooges classic “Search and Destroy” is now streaming in its entirety at SLG Music’s SoundCloud page.
“This was a great accident waiting to happen, a great choice that I resisted at first,” Stills says of the track.  “I wasn’t familiar with it, then once I played it, it was the coolest thing I ever did.  I put a Keith Richards spin on it and it sounds like a really good punk band is playing it.”
It was the album’s producer, ex-Talking Heads keyboardist Jerry Harrison, who suggested the group record the tune, which  was sung by Shepherd.
Another tune from Can’t Get Enough, “Only Teardrops Fall,” also is streaming online.  The song, a soulful mid-tempo tune sung by Stills, is one of four originals included on the album.
Shepherd describes the track as “a real sleeper, super hooky,” adding that “Stephen and I both play guitar on this and have fun trading sections.”
