...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
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.

That Beefheart Magic is back in business

The Magic Band play live at Eric’s in Liverpool on May 30


Captain Beefheart's wildly influential and seminal outfit The Magic Band - comprising original members Denny Walley, Mark Boston, John French - return to Eric’s in Liverpool on Friday, May 30.
The group's members span all the different periods of The Magic Band's history.
Sharing the vision of celebrating the music of the late Don Van Vliet, aka Captain Beefheart, the original members share the stage with guitarist Eric Klerks and drummer Andrew Niven to re-visit the classic Beefheart tunes with renewed fervour.
ATP founder Barry Hogan was the first to bring the vision to reality in 2003 with two appearances in the UK.
