...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?



NO BREXIT FOR BANKSY
ART FOR THE PEOPLE BY THE PEOPLE
finds Dismal Land a refugee/Paparazzi revelation
Now ANON (Banksy)has  art of circles and stars
to link Little England to the mainland(and France)
This issue is unresolved,and the People's Will
may re-verse previous disconnection and alienation.
Physically,the Chunnel,Ferries and flights
connect England with Europe locked tight.
Histories of wars,invasions,Dunkirk and intermarriage
means the language of art is love,link and connection.
A for alienation ,B for Brexit (now replaced by B for Banksy)
and you can see France from Dover.Just a short trip
back to the future...

Banksy claims responsibility for new Brexit mural in England
The mysterious street art master Banksy has stepped forward (in his own shadowy way) as the artist behind the massive European Union flag mural that appeared in Dover, England over the weekend. 

Not long after it appeared, many suspected the familiar stencil craft was the work of Banksy. And true to the artist's often understated political commentary via art, the mural shows a worker chipping away at one of the 12 stars on the flag. 
The small touch is likely a reference to not only Brexit, but the unfolding election in France, in which Marine Le Pen ran as a candidate intent on following the UK's lead in breaking away from the EU.
