...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.

Album Review: Yes's Progeny - Seven Shows from Seventy-two

So-called progressive rock certainly embraced enough excesses, pretentions and soulless excursions to explain why it helped to give birth to punk and new wave. Unlike some of their musical contemporaries, however, Yes were the real deal—a tightly knit outfit with something to say and the talent to say it. And they were never better equipped to deliver the goods than in late 1972, when they toured North America to promote their fifth studio LP, the classic Close to the Edge. That tour resulted in 1973’s compelling Yessongs, a bestselling live album.
