...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?" 

ROME WILL ALWAYS HAVE THE COLOSSEUM
CAMBODIA HER KILLING FIELDS
CHINA HER LONG MARCH/PURGE VICTIMS
RUSSIA HER SIBERIAN EXECUTIONS
GERMANY HER AUSCHWITZ
AMERICA HER INDIGENOUS MASSACRES
FRANCE HER GUILLOTINE REVOLUTIONARIES
ENGLAND HER TOWER OF LONDON BEHEADINGS
AUSTRALIA HER ABORIGINAL SLAUGHTERS
We are followed by histories/which return
to haunt us/until we learn/the only way to live
is where every body lives.
