...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.

ZAPPA'S LOST BROADCAST COMING TO DVD




1968 film, shot during 2nd European tour, to be released this month

A concert film recorded by Frank Zappa And The Mothers Of Invention during their second European tour is to be released on DVD for the first time.

The Lost Broadcast: The Beat Club ’68 was shot in Germany on October 6 that year, during their first visit to the country and its iconic Bremen venue.

The DVD edition includes a band rehearsal alongside the full performance, which features Ian Underwood, Bunk Gardner, Don Preston, Roy Estrada, Jimmy Carl Black, Art Tripp and Motorhead Sherwood.

Gonzo Multimedia say: “Much of this material has never been legitimately released before now. Only the last 35 minutes were ever transmitted.

“The footage shows Frank’s use of his famous hand signals to great effect, conducting and controlling the direction of the music. Enjoy music being made, in the moment, for its own sake.”
