...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.

THE GONZO WEEKLY #208

Gonzo Magazine #208
 
In this week’s enthralling issue we say goodbye to Leonard Cohen, Alan meets Del Gibbs, an unsung hero of the punk wars, Doug goes to see Steven Wilson, Jon enthuses over Shirley Collins, and surprisingly approves of the Harry Potter script book, there are not too many Donald Trump jokes, while Corinna inspects some famous busts.
 
Oooer Missus.
 
And there are radio shows from Strange Fruit, Mack Maloney, and Friday Night Progressive takes a break this week. We also have columns from all sorts of folk including Roy Weard, Mr Biffo, Neil Nixon and the irrepressible Corinna. The saga of Xtul gets particularly nasty, but Neil Nixon, Richard Freeman and Strange Daze take rainchecks this week. 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!!!
