...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.

Keith Levene, PiL, The Clash, PFM, Ryley Walker and Danny Thompson, Goosebumps, Summer's End, Mr Biffo, Roy Weard, Dogwatch, That Legendary Wooden Lion, Hawkwind, and Yes fans had better look out!
 
The legendary Keith Levene is on the front cover, together with an interview with him inside.
Doug writes about PFM, John gets enthusiastic about Ryley Walker and Danny Thompson, while Jon gets all intense about the media fascination with the 1950s, and reviews a book about the Summer's End festival. Biffo goes to The Brits and Rosie goes to see Goosebumps. There are radio shows from Strange Fruit, Friday Night Progressive, Canterbury Sans Frontieres and Mack Maloney, the latest installment of the saga of Xtul, and columns from all sorts of folk including Roy Weard, A J Smitrovich, Mr Biffo and the irrepressable Corinna. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and pademelons ouyside zoos(OK, nothing to do with small marsupials who have escaped from captivity, but I got carried away with things that rhymed with OOOOS) than you can shake a stick at. And the best part is IT's ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!
