...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?

SWEET WATERS OF SALADO CREEK
with that sculpture of a mermaid
reminding us of Tonkawa Legends
(Like the Spanish named Salado Creek
And the Tonkawa were friendly thieves
Cattle ending up in their camps
Scots and Spanish admired them
In Civil War,they were our scouts
Salado Athens of the South
With Salado College for both sexes
Emphasis upon CULTURE,CULTURE,CULTURE!
Library and Community Center
Waters rise and waters fall
Legends of Salado call
us to update as volunteers

in this their 25th  performing year
