...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?"

KUBLA KHAN & LAUDANUM
WILLIAM BURROUGHS&HEROIN
Cut-ups and alien visitations
Ghosts,Vultures,Vampires and Phastasms
Marijuana  seeds ,cannabis flowers,opium
Accelerants for literary imaginations abound
Stimulation in the half-zone of half-lives
where radioactive Fukushima fish become sushi Light
and we glow with that knowledge that our time is speed
and each influence we imbibe is something we need
and the whole world is consumed like forests.We feed
upon what we eat.Take a pill and swallow this.
Medicated Nations sedate with greed

While Truth,like civilian casualties,bleeds..
