...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)

Fw: All That Is Limitless by Hannah Gamble
@5.01,the phone rang once
(eye thought it was alarm
"It only rang once"
i slip back into seasleep
waves away,dream creamy smiles
all is right for a micro-while
and i can put aside all murdered forests
eaten animals,slaughtered wilderness
hard rock squares dumped in rivers
political lies and spying governments
sit in simple ,pale and wan
slip back into bright romance with dreamlife
that sustains all green and growing
Outside,buds and blossoms post-rain
Full wheelbarrows of borrowed wet
i will pour these into voluntears
who come when not called
who fill my wet cheers when governments are dismissed
simply because they were simple enough
to wish goodness upon people-
arts,and peace,prosperity-banished like indigenous
to be invisible both blessing and a curse
if you cannot see us,we may survive

if you cannot  love us-how can we stay alive?
