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.

Peter Noone and Herman’s Hermits return to B.R.

Photo provided by peternoone.com -- Peter Noone, of Herman's Hermits, is shown in an undated photo from the 1960s.In this 50th anniversary year of the British Invasion — that musical and cultural revolution whose more obvious touchstones include the Beatles’ “Ed Sullivan Show” debut on Feb. 9, 1964 — Peter Noone, lead singer of second-wave British Invasion band Herman’s Hermits, hopes his likewise enormously popular group doesn’t get lost in the mix.
Herman’s Hermits, a quintet from Manchester, England, starring the 16-year-old Noone, launched their lengthy stretch of hits in the summer of 1964 with a bouncing Carole King-Gerry Goffin song, “I’m Into Something Good.”
Follow-ups included remakes of 1950s American hits “(What a) Wonderful World” and “Silhouettes,” the British music hall-inspired “Mrs. Brown You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter” and the beautifully romantic modern pop of “There’s a Kind of Hush.”
