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.

JON DOWNES: Evelyn's Song

Some months ago Steve Andrews released his song about plastic pollution, and I vaguely thought that I should do likewise. But it wasn't until I read the UN declaration that we only have a maximum of 12 years to avoid eco-catastrophe that I actually did something. I have been increasingly impressed by the young women across the world who are spearheading climate change protests, and I realised with a jolt that in 12 years time my four year old granddaughter Evelyn will be the same age as Bella Lack, Jamie Margolin, Greta Thunberg and so many others are now. I pray that Evelyn will also grow into a brave, intelligent and principled young woman like one of them.

But looking at her Mother and Grandmother I do not think I have much to worry about. This song and video are free for people to use as they will, however, I would be grateful if you let me know...
