...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.

Sir Henry US review

http://blog.musoscribe.com/index.php/2016/11/30/hundred-word-reviews-for-nov-dec-2016-part-8-of-10/



Michael Livesley – Vivian Stanshall’s Sir Henry at Rawlinson End
Style: Oddball British spoken-word comedy
Incomparable wit and bon vivant Vivian Stanshall was part of the infamous Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band; if you know them at all, it’s probably from their scene in the Beatles‘ Magical Mystery Tour film. Stanshall made a series of radio programs in the 1970s for John Peel‘s (BBC) Radio One. To American ears – even ones weaned on Britishisms – this stuff is a bit hard to follow. It’s as dense as kindred spirits Firesign Theatre, but without the psychedelic element. I suspect it’s very literate, but I can’t be certain (I went to business school). Weird yet wonderful.
