...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 #199

Gonzo Magazine #199
 
In this magnificently groovy issue Doug goes to see the latest incarnation of Yes and is very impressed, Alan, Jon and Tim bid farewell to the Marmite-like Richard Neville, and John waxes lyrical about Linda Imperial. And Alan goes to a folkie pub and visits Graham Keen’s exhibition 1966 and All That, and interviews the man himself. Jon, on the other hand, finishes Miss Peregrine's peculiar trilogy.
 
Good ‘ere innit?
 
And there are radio shows from Strange Fruit, Mack Maloney, and Friday Night Progressive takes a week off. We also have columns from all sorts of folk including Roy Weard, Mr Biffo, Neil Nixon and the irrepressible Corinna. 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!!!
