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.

Original Kinks drummer Mick Avory returns to Twickenham Eel Pie Club

Your Local Guardian: Kast-off Kinks (Pic- Jennifer Noble)Kast-off Kinks (Pic- Jennifer Noble)
Original Kinks drummer Mick Avory is no stranger to the Eel Pie Club - and he cannot wait to perform there again next month.
Now playing as part of the Kast-off Kinks, Avory, the only original Kink in the group, plays alongside former band members Jim Rodford and Ian Gibbons.
The only non-Kink is Dave Clarke, who previously performed as part of the Noel Redding Band.
And for Avory, who lives in Kew, playing in Twickenham is something of a homecoming - he even performed on Eel Pie Island with the West Molesey Scouts in 1957.
He says: “We have played the venue three or four times over the years and always enjoy our nights there.
“They get a good crowd down the Eel Pie Club, plenty of regulars who are up for a good time.
“I’m from West Molesey originally and have spent a lot of time in north London over the years but I have always been a river boy at heart.”
