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.

The former lead guitarist with '70s band Genesis is at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall on October 19 as part of his Acolyte to Wolflight with Genesis revisited tour.
It features solo material from early albums including Voyage of the Acolyte which celebrates its 40th Anniversary this year, Spectral Mornings and new studio album Wolflight.
There will also be something for Genesis fans, with hits that have not been played by Steve for a while.
Looking forward to the show, Steve told the Globe today: "It's been a year or two since I last played the Philharmonic, but I'm looking forward to going back.
"It's a massive tour and choosing the songs was a tall order.
"I'm looking forward tremendously to creating a show celebrating both early material and my latest album Wolflight, using magical surround sound."
Spectral Mornings
DVD - £5.99
