...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.

GONZO WEEKLY #220

Gonzo Magazine #220
THE "THERE'S A (PINK) FAIRY AT THE BOTTOM OF MY GARDEN" ISSUE
 
The first of a two part exclusive interview with the legendary Larry Wallis by Jeremy, Doug says Goodbye to the irreplaceable John Wetton, Richard goes to see Live Dead ‘69, John remembers Gary Duncan, and Jon looks at another Beatles book, and reveals a secret from his murky past, and there is more, lots more...
 
It’s all free!
 
And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney, and Friday Night Progressive, (Strange Fruit is missing in action this week), and part two of Jeremy Smith's new project The Seven Deadly Sins. We also have columns from all sorts of folk including Roy Weard, Mr Biffo, Neil Nixon and the irrepressible Corinna. 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!!!
