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.

Listen to Stream of New Michael Des Barres Live Album

Michael Des Barres 2
If it happened on the Sunset Strip, he was probably present.
 By Blurt Staff
 Glam rock icon and L.A. scene fixture Michael Des Barres (Silverhead, Detective, Power Station, etc.) has just released a live album recently recorded at the Viper Room in Hollywood. Hot ‘n Sticky is the title and we are advised that it is “just as the title describes, delivering the songs from his recent solo albumCarnaby Street and other personal favorites the way this music is meant to be enjoyed. It’s down-n-dirty, straight-up rock ‘n roll.”
 Well, all right then! Spoken like a true Sunset Strip denizen. Check out some tunes:
Explains Des Barres, “I had no plans to record a live album that night. I record everything so I have something to dance to, but this happened to be one of those hot and sticky nights when the music plays itself, and we became like a primal, blusey, electric machine. Of course it helps that we’ve played every club, dive bar and juke joint that would have us. That’s where rock ‘n roll lives — no video screens, no lasers, dancers or lip synching, just raw incantations from the Olympian heights of rock ‘n roll heaven.”
