...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?"

ART HAS LEFT THE BUILDING
Shaken off her price tags and claimed her populist heritage
Art is no longer his story/nor caged inside a museum display
Art is no longer archaeology.Dig It!Art LIVES!
On every street -as icons,graffiti ,tags-images come alive
On every wall-a mural.Every cage-a garden ,growing
With color and splash and panache,new and young and uniting
World changes the way you see worlds changing
Be the unframed sky of sound art/crunch of cloud made rain
Sun spilling on canvases of sand and cave
Everywhere is art!Every one an artist!
Your Mistress piece awaits!
