...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.

Mick Abrahams US review




Mick Abrahams' Revived! could have multiple meanings as Mick is revived after major health issues or he might be saying that many of the songs on his 17-track CD are re-energized covers. Either way, Abrahams (the original guitarist in Jethro Tull and the driving force behind Blodwyn Pig) serves up an invigorated mix of diverse musical styles all spiked with hot guitar licks often infused with the blues. The album opens and closes with an original in two versions. "Summer Day" sizzles with smoking riffs and rhythms. Mick and his band put a creative spin on "On The Road Again and have fun with "Boney Moronie". There are also a number of instrumentals on Revived!including the delicate and delightful "Dragonfly" featuring two dancing guitars. Mick Abrahams is back with a nod to the past yet very much in the present with this flavorful album.
