...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 #189

Gonzo Magazine #189
 
A globetrotting issue this time around.  Californian Doug goes to London to see (and meet) Rick Wakeman and Alice Cooper.  Bristolian John travels to California for Quicksilver Messenger Service. Scottish Alan goes to Lithuania and enthuses on Baltic reggae, Jeremy goes to London and sees Love Revisited, the legendary Erik Norlander visits a desert island, and the Editor and his Mrs travel around the country looking at crocodiles. And there are radio shows from Strange Fruit, and Mack Maloney, Canterbury Sans Frontières and Friday Night Progressive. We also have columns from all sorts of folk including Roy Weard, Mr Biffo, Neil Nixon although the irrepressible Corinna is taking a week off. There is also a thrilling and slightly disturbing episode of Xtul. 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!!!
