...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.

Trevor Horn interview: ‘Computers haven’t killed the recording studio yet’

In one of music’s most ironic twists, Trevor Horn reached No 1 with “Video Killed the Radio Star” only to become a victim of technological advance himself, as computers threatened to kill off his way of life. “It was a frightening feeling,” says the veteran producer who in his large, round spectacles was the face of The Buggles and pioneered electro-pop 35 years ago. By the mid-Nineties he, too, was feeling outdated. “I grew up using analogue tape and I thought: ‘Where’s my record? It’s in the computer? Where… ?’”

But as Britain’s traditional recording industry ebbs away, Horn is heading in the opposite direction with a major expansion of the famous Sarm Studios, where Bob Marley & The Wailers made Exodus, Queen created “We Are The Champions” and Band Aid recorded “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” 30 years ago, as well as the recent follow-up.
