...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!!" 

TO BE ALIVE IS EVERYTHING!


"GREEN!HOW MUCH I WANT YOU GREEN!"
His voice still singing FREEDOM!,wrapped in pages
She has borrowed and responded to.DUENDE?
She must go deeper into TRISTE,LACRIMAE/
those mixed emotions defiant yet sensitive to response
For every song of love is a plea for freedom
Every uniform limits love/makes OTHER of another mirror skin
Allows execution academic ,military,emotional
so we feel disconnected from that DUENDE that impels response.
Burst heart out of red pages,green hopes in Spanish bullets
that punctuate and punish Freedom's Flag of Song
when to wear one's trust in truth meets censorship ,and you
lay your only body on every line...Duende..

Garcia Lorca by reciting his last poem, just before his execution during the Spanish Civil War in August 1936, by a firing squad fascist.
What is man without freedom
Oh! Mariana tell me
Tell me how can I love you
If I am not free, tell me
How do you ofreceré my heart
If it is not to mine
