...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.

THOM THE WORLD POET: The Daily Poem


Rob Ayling writes: 

"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!!" (The wondrous poetpic is by Jack McCabe, who I hope forgives me for scribbling all over it with Photoshop)

FOR THE ALCOHOL COMMERCIAL
they were looking for oddball characters-
white rap artists,amiable eccentrics
Austin creatures to be auditioned
for visage,sound and style
He got a call back but they did not
i saw the rap artist selected
with a mock-jazz band /hip-hopping
freestyle among the black and white
shades,shapes,images.Glad
that some rap made it in.Sad that some label
sold itself on mock-jazz stylings.
Once,my hippie friends were paid
to imitate themselves at Glastonbury
when no one would believe
that actual hippies existed
Image and from are divorced
They have come to a settlement
whenever money is involved
art must imitate.
