...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 HOWE'S HOMEBREW #5

STEVE HOWE - Homebrew 5
At the first glance, collections of short demos and sketches – as well as personal landscape photos – aren’t something able to engage not-so-hardcore aficionados. But that’s not the case in the case of Steve Howe, a master guitarist, mostly known for his exquisite work with YES and riffing with ASIA, but also cherished for his dueling with another Steve H, Hackett, in GTR. It’s these bands’ pieces, in their raw – and quite often much more compelling – form that, since 1996, has formed the base of Howe’s “Homebrew” series that is continued now with its fifth installment.
While the initial disc concerned ABWH and GTR, its follow-up connected Steve’s ’70s solo work with YES’“Union” and “Keys To Ascension,” “Homebrew 3″ got all modern with “The Ladder” and “Magnification” stuff as well as the veteran’s ’90s albums, and the fourth part concentrated on even later material, “Homebrew 5″ takes it all up date with tunes which ended up on YES’ “Fly From Here,” ASIA’s “XXX” and “Omega” and Steve’s own “Spectrum.”
