...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.

Yes’ patched-together homecoming project Union never lived up to its promise



If Yes’ Union — featuring every major contributor to the prog band’s legacy, save for Peter Banks and Trevor Horn — seemed a bit too good to be true, that’s because it was. Released on April 30, 1991, Union was less multi-generational homecoming than Frankenstein monster, an album pieced together from separate projects.
It arrived during a period of transition. Yes’ then-current membership (Tony Kaye, Chris Squire, Trevor Rabin, Alan White and newer collaborators like Billy Sherwood) were struggling to begin again following 1987’s Big Generator and Jon Anderson’s departure. Though they’d worked together on consecutive albums going back to 1983’s smash 90125, Anderson had yet to connect with Rabin.
