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 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)


At this age,you gather your sheep and ask each for a story
A wolf interjects /disagrees with your version.Each eagle eyes a lamb,waiting for winter
In your Spring step,green and tripping,you gamboled.Now your weather eye is peeled
for time is a storm between shelters.Experience a leaking ship.You row faster than hurricanes
Words slip /Titanics/sink.Will you art before life leaves?Edit or tell full truth?
Shame and Indecision argue loudly.One wants birdcalls,the other roadkill.Between,you vacillate
Does grammar matter to the dead?Will your family already know?Who dares censor you now?
Grandchildren follow in their own baby blankets.Blink like koalas.Innocent?or just diplomatic?
Every body knows.There are no secrets.Before and after death=stories.Tell them now!
Memoirs are made for Revelations.Bible of your Being.Truth Will Out!oops!should i have said that?
