...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?


NOW THAT YOU ARE GONE
I GIVE PRAISE TO THOSE DAYS
When we had time and energy to burn
so we lit candles @both ends-ferocious
Now is empty hole in bucket time travel
We have a Bank of Memories to withdraw interest on
And they are specific to our unique selves
Others do not even know of which we speak
That is how i get through hollow point days/empty moon nights
with only the bank of flowers that you built,petal by petal..
The lines of ghost memoirs build in mountains and in caves
When we recite the passage of familiars
Others look@us with question marks
Always ,we start again-Blank page.Empty Stage
The Play re-written for a newer film.
Your part given to Anonymous.
This is how we will get through this.
Shred All Documents..
