...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!!" 

AFRAID OF RAIN
They demurred
Withdrew from dark clouds 
and threatening weather forecasts
We plugged in and sang under clouds
Rain dropped tears on pages and moved on'
We sang because our very lives depend upon
whether we can find space to sing to/with/for each other
as we uncover  from consumer /a Light that defeats all weather
That creative spark that laughs at temperatures
and takes raindrops as kisses.That becomes winged
when darkness envelopes all into bundled brilliance
She sang.He declaimed.More improvised and collaborated
Thus it was that each and every and all/were choir of crickets
and harbingers of hope.We knew clouds would move along

They,too,love the sounds of songs..
