...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.

Steve Hillage: Rainbow 77 UK review

http://www.totalmusicmagazine.com/albumreviews.htm

Steve Hillage
Live at the Rainbow (Gonzo)
Steve HillageRecorded later in the same year that gave us Live Heraldand hot on the heels of his two most successful albums –L and Motivation Radio – this set cherry picks the best from his three solo albums and, even though this is a cut down four piece from the line-up on Live Herald, it captures Hillage in full on psychedelic rockin’ form, in fact the more basic line up seems to drive his guitar playing to even more blissed out flights of fantasy, and if his vocals still remain something of an acquired taste, the music reveals an important link between the proggy lunacy of Gong and the techno ambi-bliss of System 7.
