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.

Sax Legend Gary Windo (w/Soft Machine, Pink Floyd Members) Gets Reissued

Gary Windo
Robert Wyatt and Nick Mason…
 Gonzo Multimedia is releasing three rare albums by sax legend Gary Windo, one of which features Robert Wyatt and Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason. The albums are 1976’s Steam Radio Tapes (w/Wyatt and Mason), 1979’s Dogface) and 1987’s Deep Water.
 The backstory:
 Windo was involved in the Seventies with many icons of the British jazz and rock genres, including the Canterbury scene. Born in Brighton in 1941, in March 1970, he took part in Graham Bond’s all-star Sun Festival, with Jack Bruce, Mitch Mitchell, and Brian Auger. In the same year, he joined Keith Tippett’s 50-piece orchestra, Centipede, and Chris McGregor’s Brotherhood of Breath. In 1971, he and Robert Wyatt formed Symbiosis, a prog-rock jamming band featuring Mongezi Feza, Nick Evans and Roy Babbington.
