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.

Prog-Rock Icons Yes Announce Australian Tour

Prog-Rock Icons Yes Announce Australian Tour

World-renowned prog-rock luminaries Yes have revealed that they are heading Down Under this November for a four-city jaunt of the land that will see the Grammy-winning legends perform two of their classic albums back-to-back.

The touring line-up is centred on founding bassist Chris Squire and long-time guitarist Steve Howe, who joined the band in 1970, two years after Squire and co-originator Jon Anderson had conceived the band. Drummer Alan White is the next longest-serving of the current line-up, having stepped behind the kit for the group back in 1972, with keyboardist Geoff Downes having been a mainstay since 1980.

The newest member of the line-up, lead vocalist Jon Davison, joined in 2012, replacing Anderson's original fill-in, Benoît Gerard Guy David.

You’ll want to get in a good kip or something before the shows, as they will take in the British trailblazers’ watershed 1971 LP Fragile as well as 1972’s follow-upClose To The Edge – not to mention an encore all stuffed full of the band’s biggest hits from the rest of their long and storied career, as well as new material from the band’s forthcoming Heaven And Earth LP, which is due for release next month.
