...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)

HALLOWE'EN POEM
NIGHT CLOUD HORSES BROOD
Thunder stomps his hooves
Lightning slashes the face of sky
Underneath is how and why 
we are still Children of Nature
No controls on wind or storm
Bitter chill or humid warm
We have no powers @all!
Lost orphans of Nature
Build our Towers tall and watch
as in time they are demolished
We are what we create and soon
we will be baying@an empty moon
Dead may not rise except in memory
We hold mirrors up to sun and stars to see
Creatures of Light and Dark will always be
Resurrected by Halloween
