...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)

ty cobb's mother kills his father -- 7/08/14
VILLAGE IS AS VILLAGE DOES
Every village gossips as a form of love
It keeps Myth Tygers in control
of events they otherwise would not know
how to deal with-casualties of war,domestic abuse
Theories and whispers control us-mysteries surround us
There is no way to know-was it sex?violence?
What monster resurrects when laws are retrospective?
Blind justice acquits us rarely-we speak before we know
and every village wants it so/old as shadows and the Light
the play of visiting death and too brief life
This is what we do when we are small


We tell stories to understand it all...
