...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 #281

Gonzo Weekly #281
THE LET THERE BE DRUMS ISSUE
 
Doug goes to see Carl Palmer with the ELP Legacy, and is happy to say that the percussional wunderkind of half a century ago still has what it takes, Alan and Phil give an encyclopaedic overview of ladies who have sung the blues, Graham brings us up to date with Hawkwind, and Jon brings us up to date with a follow up on last week's article about Steve Andrews.
 
#Hail Eris!
 
And there are radio shows from Strange Fruit, AND Mack Maloney, BUT Friday Night Progressive is on hiatus this week, there are columns from all sorts of folk including Neil Nixon, Kev Rowlands, C J Stone, and Mr Biffo AND the irrepressible Corinna, although Roy Weard is sady absent this week. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and southern dibblers who have stood around in twos (OK, nothing to do with small marsupials who have paired up under last weekend's blue moon, but I got carried away with things that rhymed with OOOOS) than you can shake a stick at.
