...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?"

TONIGHT THE CHILDREN WILL INVADE
Their parents solicitous around them
Ever since pins were given with candy
Few children tap tap us after dark
They come in clumps,in crowds,in packs
They tap tap tap until we are emptied
Then we turn our light out.Even then,packs'
of pre-adolescent thin wolves hover with bags big
and masks but no costumes as such
much like Clockwork Orange droogs
We are less generous with such bloodsuckers
If they only dressed like vampires
we would at least know their process
Night is coming soon-the moon hides
Streetlights are dim in South Austin

Our barrio is preparing..
