...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.

HACKETT BOX SET REVEALED


NEWS / MARTIN KIELTY / 29 MAY 2015

Steven Wilson and Mark Powell involved in former Genesis man's 14-disc Premonitions collection, due in October

Steven Wilson and Mark Powell have worked on a 14-disc box set of Steve Hackett’s work – and it’s set for an October release.

Entitled Premonitions, it focuses on the ex-Genesis guitarist’s mid 70s and early 80s output. 

Wilson says: “Premonitions will cover his time with Charisma Records between 1975-83, including the first four albums in newly created 5.1 surround sound versions.

“I was only able to remix two of these into discrete surround since the multitrack tapes for the other two could not be located. So instead I created surround sound upmixes, which nevertheless came out sounding very immersive and worthwhile.

“All the remixing was supervised and approved by Steve.”

The collection has been put together by Powell and further details will be revealed in due course.
