...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.

Original Mike Taylor's handmade scores.

Written on paper on September 25th, 1964 by Mike Taylor for his friend Trevor Watts with the proposal to rehearsal, these are the scores of "Rama", an unrealised composition never played on live concerts or recorded sessions. 

Mike hand drew the staves and everything in neat pen and ink on a thickish tissue type of paper.  The binder was also self made with a stiff orange and clips to keep it all together...

Apart the fact that it is a precious object, it would be a wonderful thing if someone would decide to play/record this unrealised music.
