...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)

SOMEWHERE IS 
ALWAYS SOMEWHERE ELSE
Swinging London 60s/Beat Generation 50s
"The Greatest Generation"War years.Depression Grandfathers.
These were the only Parties in town.Coke for water.Beer for brains.
Believe in the Flag.Trust in Stocks and Bonds.Now comes China
taking away the tablecloth.Our war is all wars-never-ending.
No defined purpose /intention-just keep feeding those flames
Stoke race hate/aliens/"others"/refugees/migrants
Make then OTHER to us.Keep us afraid.
We can then buy a gun(and use it).Self-defense?We have no self!
Gun only has one purpose,son!USE IT(or lose it! Follow Your Fore-Fathers
They were OBEDIENT UNTO DEATH.And THAT is our job,son
The Industry of Arms -and The Man.
