...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)

RADIOFOLK
SOME PEOPLE ARE TRANSISTORS
part of a circuit that makes transmission of sound possible
some are cases/that encompass all the parts
a few are amplifiers-taking tiny sounds/making them larger
so more folk can hear properly/good examples
of a community with many parts/many aspects.
You see-some of us have antique aspects-
we are valve radio/crystal radio sets
We are low wattage community radio collectives
We are volunteers holding ourselves together
and by so doing/broadcasting the best we can offer
to consenting sentients with ears wide open
This is what we do.This is where we are.
We make the good larger
Call us human amplifiers!
