...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?

NEED 2 GATHER
SO WE DO
But the Food Van has been sold
and the house smells like fire
and the last van left has power
so we tap into it for a PA
and stories arise of truth and power
Guitars and songs and improvisations
For every foundation of our love
is only ever what we need of each other
AWAY WITH LAMINATES&COUNTED TICKETS!
Bring on the challenges of open air meetings!
Where rain and air and sun and wind combine
to spin a spiral magic of attraction
as we listen and compound our lives together
with a wisdom every Bard must learn-
We are more together than apart

This only shared and spinning life shall be our art!
