...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 #283

Gonzo Weekly #283
THE BACK TO THE VINYL FUTURIST ISSUE
 
In the week where it has been announced that the recorded music industry in the UK has had its best year since Britpop, John looks at Record Store Day 2018 from the point of view of a Gonzo reader, Alan does some extraordinary things in Lithuania, Doug looks at an unfairly overlooked Genesis album, and Jon mutters on about Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine, and global reapolitik.
 
#Hail Eris!
 
And there are radio shows from Strange Fruit, AND Mack Maloney, AND Friday Night Progressive is on hiatus this week, there are columns from all sorts of folk including Neil Nixon, Kev Rowlands AND the irrepressible Corinna, although Roy Weard, C J Stone, and Mr Biffo are sadly 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.
