...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 #295-6

Gonzo Weekly #295-6
THE BANISHING THE SUMMERTIME BLUES BUMPER ISSUE
 
In this remarkably eclectic issue, Kev interviews the  legendary Robert Berry about 3, his  relationship with Keith Emerson and more. Alan goes to Holmesfest, Richard goes to the New Forest Folk Festival, and John goes to The Moon. Doug investigates Depeche Mode, Jon asks why YouTube is so cruel, and wonders whether Joan Aiken was the mother of Steampunk, and questions whether anyone will get his Dornford Yates joke... YOU CANNOT GET MUCH MORE ECLECTIC THAN THAT!
 
#Hail Eris!
 
And there are radio shows from Strange Fruit, Mack Maloney, AND Friday Night Progressive, AND there are columns from all sorts of folk including Kev Rowlands, the irrepressible Corinna, Neil Nixon, Roy Weard, C J Stone, and Mr Biffo. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and red kangaroos who've lost their shoes (OK, nothing to do with the largest extant macropods who are in a quandry with regards their footwear, 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!!!
