...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.

STEVE HILLAGE Live in England REVIEW

http://progsheet1.hypermart.net/cdah.html



Steve Hillage - Live In England 1979 (Gonzo Multimedia)

What a neat package this is! You get a CD with a free bonus DVD of the gig. In this case, the Steve Hillage gig is a Rock Goes To College performance at the University of Kent on February 28, 1979. Joining Hillage for this show were Miquette Giraudy on synths; Dave Stewart (not that Dave Stewart nor the other Dave Stewart!) on guitar; John McKenzie on bass; Andy Anderson on drums.


It's a 6 song set: Salmon Song, Unzipping The Zype, Hurdy Gurdy Man, 1988 Activator, Unidentified (Flying Being), It's All Too Much. The band were whip tight on this, with the rhythm section of McKenzie and Anderson especially explosive. Hillage was in good voice and on fire on guitar. You'll treasure his solos!

The CD includes 2 bonus tracks:Hurdy Gurdy Glissando and Electrick Gypsies - both from 1977. The DVD adds videos from The Old Grey Whistle Test for Radio and Light In The Sky. In addition the DVD includes a fascinating interview with Hillage and Giraudy circa 2007. You already know that you need this!
