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.

Sky Architect Return With A Billion Years Of Solitude

Sky Architect
Sky Architect will release their third album, A Billion Years Of Solitude, on Monday – and they hope it will prove that prog can be exciting as well as beautiful. View their video for lead trackTides below.
The Dutch outfit’s follow-up to 2011′s A Dying Man’s Hymn is inspired by vintage science fiction and explores themes of space travel, wormholes, supernovae and more.
They describe the work as “heavier, more daring and inventive” and add that they’ve “challenged themselves more than ever before”. The result, they say, is “a stunning outburst of creativity featuring surprising changes, crazy rhythmic devices, polyphonic arrangements and complex song structures”.
The young five-piece, all qualified architects, are inspired by bands including the Flower Kings, Pain Of Salvation, Opeth, Pink Floyd, Genesis and King Crimson. And they suggest fans of Gentle Giant and Rage Against The Machine might find it rewarding to give them a spin.
A Billion Years Of Solitude is released on November 4 via Galileo Records.
