...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 Weekly #254

Gonzo Weekly #254
THE ONLY IN IT FOR THE FUNNY ISSUE
In this week’s
astounding issue we meet the legendary Mr Biffo and talk about cabbages and kings, Alan and Sam debate the ethics of free
festivals, John goes to see Suzanne Vega and Jon finally gets Johnny Thunders. Graham writes about Hawkwind, and Jon remembers a 30 year friendship that was all down to Frank Zappa. And there is oodles more my little cupcakes.
Wooooot!
And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney, Strange Fruit, and Friday Night Progressive. We also have columns from all sorts of folk including Roy Weard, C J Stone, Mr Biffo, Neil Nixon and the irrepressible Corinna. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and common planigales who have cooked some stews (OK, nothing to do with small marsupials who have been culinarily creative, 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!!!
