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.

"Thom the World poet is an old mate of mine from way back in my history. Even pre-dating Voiceprint, when I was running "Otter Songs" and Tom's poetry tapes and guest appearances with Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth Mother Gong are well known and highly regarded. It just felt right to include a daily poem from Thom on our Gonzo blog and when I approached him to do so, he replied with in seconds!!! Thom is a great talent and just wants to spread poetry, light and positive energy across the globe. If we at Gonzo can help him do that - why not? why not indeed!!"

Eat The Exhibits!Locust Plagues in reverse!
Exotic!Venomous!'Tastes Like Snake!"
BECAUSE IT IS SNAKE! All creepy crawlies
find a home -chocolate covered ants,scorpion soup,
crunchy crispy crickets,jungle nymph walking stick salads
Think cockroaches&mosquitoes-reverse engineering!
Giant cave cockroaches from Panama
Black Asian forest scorpions from Malaysia
White-eyed assassin bugs from South Africa
Blue death feigning beetles
Red-spotted longhorn beetles
Gooty sapphire tarantulas-our menu is extensive
Did you begin by eating birds?or centipedes?
Only a small step to witchetty grubs,fat and delicious
Millions of insects await your taste!Beat them to the bite!
