...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.

GONZO WEEKLY #175

Gonzo Magazine #175
 
Once again we were taken over by events as Garry Shandling died yesterday. Garry Shandling, Larry Sanders Show, Larry Carlton, Soft Machine, rock movie, John Etheridge, Paul McCartney, Mr Biffo, Roy Weard, Dogwatch, That Legendary Wooden Lion, Hawkwind, and Yes fans had better look out!
 
We say goodbye to the insanely funny Garry Shandling, creator of the Larry Sanders Show. Doug writes about rock movies, while we review a book about Paul McCartney. John goes all jazzy with Larry Carlton and the Soft Machine Experience, Biffo looks at a lavatory themed restaurant. We send Dani from Marbin to a desert island. There are radio shows from Strange Fruit, Canterbury sans Frontieres, and Mack Maloney, the latest installment of the saga of Xtul, and columns from all sorts of folk including Roy Weard, Neil Nixon and the irrepressible Corinna. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and pademelons outside 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!!!
