...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.

A gothic witch from Lancashire will star in a major Museum of Science and Industry exhibition on the work of Leonardo da Vinci after prevailing in a three-month search for the Manchester Mona Lisa.

The museum's Da Vinci – The Genius show launched a competition in Aprilto find a Mancunian answer to the largest current European exhibition on the legendary artist, which features revealing insights into his 15th century processes.

Chorlton imposter Carol Hodge beat a 20-strong shortlist of men, women, dogs and photoshop curiosities to triumph in the online poll, posing against a smouldering backdrop with her faced caked in thick white make-up and black eyeliner, topped with a spiralling black hat.

"I want to say thank you to all the people who took the time to vote for me," she said.
