...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 Magazine #231

Gonzo Magazine #231
THE BALTIC BOOGIE ISSUE
 
And so, in this especially poignant issue, we say goodbye to Allan Holdsworth, explore the wilder side of Balkan street art with Alan, muse about Auld Man's Baccie, discover why The Grateful Dead did NOT sponsor the Lithuanian Basketball Team, we go to Dreadzone with John, and read books about The Beatles, The Bay City Rollers, and Brian Jones.
 
Groovy huh?
 
It’s all free!
 
And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney, Friday Night Progressive, and Strange Fruit. 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!!!
