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.

Crimson ProjeKCt Postpones Ukraine Concert Due To Unrest Read More: Crimson ProjeKCt Postpones Ukraine Concert Due To Unrest


The Crimson ProjeKCt, a group containing three King Crimson alumni, has been forced to cancel its March 6 show in Kiev as a result of the turbulent political situation in Ukraine. The group hopes to reschedule for a date in July.

Tony Levin, the group’s virtuoso Chapman Stick player, broke the news on the group’s Facebook page. “We have been looking forward to the concert in Kiev in spite of the difficulties there,” he wrote. “And until today we were planning on going through with it despite advisories from the U.S. State Dept not to go. But it’s not going to be possible at this time.”

Levin, who wrote about his familial connection to Ukraine, added that he’s “sad that we weren’t able to bring the Crimson ProjeKCt music to Kiev at this pivotal time — I know first hand of the passion people have there for the music they love. My hope is, of course, that the current problems get worked out in a way that’s best for the people of Ukraine.”
