...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 Thom'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?"


ROAD KILL

TRAFFIC LIGHTS.CAR ACCIDENT
Seems one of these metal came to earth with some earth creature
Living talk.Joke.Laugh.Discuss exactly what happened
See eye/on the side-brown bulk kangaroo.
Heaving/breathing/bloodied/dying
I hold her paw and look into her huge eye
Look deep into her dark and see all the night sky.
One star/fell.

KOOKABURRA
On the way to Down to Earth
Something smashed into my windshield
I stop and retrieve a shocked and shattered morning jackass
Her beak was bleeding and her eyes were dull.I wrapped her in a blanket and drove on.
I set up tent and fed her grass and insects.When i awoke
This bird had flown.

BLACK SNAKE
Hitchhiking.Northern Territory
Dropped off in the Middle of Nowhere
Look eye on the roadway.Curled black snake
Perhaps seeking comfort and warmth.

I walk on...
