...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 HACKETT ISSUES WOLFLIGHT TEASER


Steve Hackett has issued a teaser video for his upcoming album Wolflight.
It’s due to launch on March 30 and will be the former Genesis man’s first original solo work since 2011’s Beyond The Shrouded Horizon. And he insists Wolflight is the pinnacle of his career so far.
He says: “I feel it’s the best thing I’ve done and I’ve been making albums now for a very long time. There’s tons of energy and I feel, unlike the other albums, it doesn’t wander off the plot too much.”
He’s joined on the record by guest musicians and longtime collaborators, including keyboardist Roger King, drummers Gary O’Toole and Hugo Dagenhardt, saxophonist Rob Townsend, bassist Nick Beggs and singer Amanda Lehmann. Also joining Hackett on the project is Yes bassist Chris Squire, who plays on the track Love Song To A Vampire.
Along with a standard CD, Wolflight will also launch on double vinyl and as a digital download. In addition, a special edition CD and Blu-ray mediabook will be released featuring interviews and two hours of bonus material.
Hackett will head out on the road across the UK in October for 19 dates. He’ll showcase music from throughout his career and play tracks from his debut solo album, Voyage Of The Acolyte, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.
