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.

Auburn review

The workhorse behind the British formation 'Auburn' is singer and song writer Liz Lenten from Lincolnshire that the group already in 1999. However, it was not until 2003 when ' Auburn ' for the first time with the album "Dreams" a debut album on the market. But soon this was followed by a complete silence around the tape, because Liz Lenten went focus on reproduction and concentrated on getting children and the development of a family.

In 2012 was the time has come to do something back in the music and that renewed interest eventually led to the launch of a second album "Indian Summer" with folk and Americana-songs in which the influences from the blues and country music were never far away. In 2014 followed than a third plate of ' Auburn ' under the title "Nashville" to the place of recording and now there is already a fourth cd by Liz Vernon and her band on the market.

Title of these twelve songs plate is "Mixed Feelings", something not at all present with us after listening to this cd, because it is a pretty fun album with some notable songs that already after a first listen linger in the memory.

The American top musicians in the recording studio in Nashville, Tennessee have assisted his bassist Mark Fain, drum star Lynn Williams, Justin Moses on fiddle, banjo and dobro, Barry Walsh on piano and organ and cd-producer Thomm Jutz on guitar. He is the man who signed for the role as producer of her previous cd "Nashville". Liz Lenten is the lead vocalist and the often handsome harmony vocals are submitted by JT Brown.

The album title track that allows the cd starts is a blues ballad. The emotions that Liz Lenten has processed in songs like "Love Lost Its Way", "New Years Day", "Friends" or countryballad "Out There" seem very sincere and straight from the heart. The songs are about aspects in life which emotions always what higher can flare up: love, friendship, deception and loss of loved ones.

A gift over which this musician certainly has is that they the listener by the substance of her singing style and her clever lyrics know rush in the story of the songs. Other songs from "Mixed Feelings" that appeal to us are "Lovers Lullaby", "More Than Everything", "Quiete Life" and the folksy valve "Feel The Sun".

Liz Lenten has been a very good decision taken by itself from England to move to Nashville for the recording of this record, because nowhere else in the world can you hear the music in these songs as appropriate by topinstrumentalisten to.


Liz Lenten formed AUBURN in the summer of 1999. Their first gig was at the jam-packed launch party of Scarlet Records held at the salubrious and smoky Madame JoJo’s in Soho to
