...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, yer Gonzo Grande Fromage, 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 within 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?"

VOICE IS THE CHOICE OF OUR PEOPLE
AND IT IS RAISED TO SING
To remember ,with respect,those past and present
ways for us to assimilate commingled joy and pain
Solo,one folk agent can carry whole cultures
More-a choir of notes cashed in and golden
Birdsong at dawn.Lullabye evenings.
Chanting,ululating,crying in a sound wave
that rides us through emotions too wild
to otherwise explain in brick words
the difference between words,walls  and wings.

Touching video of the song Plyve Kacha on a Ukrainian TV show. A participant signs the song, accompanied by a Ukrainian national instrument bandura. Plyve Kacha is a symbolic song which is played in honor of those who died during the Revolution of Dignity and now those who die for their Fatherland in the war.
