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 Boomtown Rats - US Review

The Boomtown Rats
Live Germany '78 DVD/CD

Review by G. W. Hill

I had completely forgotten how raw and pure punk the Boomtown Rats were at first. This scorching hot concert really makes that fact clear. The sound mix isn’t perfect for sure. The main problems being Bob Geldof’s vocals and the piano both overshadowed by the rest of the group. This concert is a fun reminder of the fact that the Rats were a young, hungry band in 1978. I like the booklet that comes with this DVD. I really love the fact that an audio CD of the show is also included. If you want to remember what the Boomtown Rats were like in the beginning, get this. You won’t be disappointed. It’s a great blast from the past.


Live in Germany '78
DVD/CD - £14.99
