...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.

THOM THE WORLD POET: The Daily Poem


Rob Ayling writes: 

"Thom the World poet is an old mate of mine from way back in my history. Even pre-dating Voiceprint, when I was running "Otter Songs" and Tom's poetry tapes and guest appearances with Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth and Mother Gong are well known and highly regarded. It just felt right to include a daily poem from Thom on our Gonzo blog and when I approached him to do so, he replied with in seconds!!! Thom is a great talent and just wants to spread poetry, light and positive energy across the globe. If we at Gonzo can help him do that - why not? why not indeed!!" (The wondrous poetpic is by Jack McCabe, who I hope forgives me for scribbling all over it with Photoshop)

DAEVID ALLEN AS PSYCHIC & AS PROPHET
Writer he,of stories,songs and poetry
Posited a story of a man who never came to earth
just traveled the world via plane/and never came down again
This portion was partly true.Once airlines had certificates
for unlimited travel for 30 days(DELTAPASS)
And GONG bands used them to tour between cities.
Now there are tribes exploiting Frequent Flyer Programs
who fly for free and find homes in the skies.Easy!
But this story was written decades before Internet blogs detailed such practices

And Daevid Allen was original
