...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?"

WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
Sunshine.Simplicity.Semi-rural /suburban.
Working class.(Once there was one..
Naive as cliche.Eyes,ears witnessing
Unfolding of hard growth ,fast changes.
Communist Bookstore bombed.
Police in brown /changing to blue.
Same as dredged /muddy Brisbane River
From penny ferry to catamarans.
From real beaches to City Beach.
From tropical fruits to gay bars.
Of course-optimism!Learning via libraries.
Chermside and District Youth Club.
Our Lady of the Angels,Wavell Heights.
From new Swiss slick trams to diesel buses.
From Gregory Terrace to University of Queensland
From Brisbane Town to a Capitol City.

That is where i am from.You are where eye am heading to
