...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 #325/6

Gonzo Weekly #325/6
THE GONZO ISSUE
 
In this week's tremendously Gonzo issue of Gonzo, Alan goes back in time to investigate the Gonzoid beginnings of Gonzo as a genre, we welcome a new columnist (a famous film director, no less) but when we put him on a desert island he tells us all sorts of things that we weren't expecting, Carl and Geordie go in search of lost horror movies, Jon rants about the Pet Shop Boys and Robert Anton Wilson, and Graham brings us up to date with Hawkwind. And there is oodles more...
 
Hail Eris!
 
And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney and Friday Night Progressive BUT Strange Fruit is on hiatus due to technical issues AND there are columns from Kev Rowland, and C J Stone, BUT Neil Nixon, Roy Weard Mr Biffo, and the irrepressible Corinna are on hiatus.  There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and rock wallabies who've blown a fuse (OK, nothing to do with the relatively small macropods who are having electrical problems, 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!!!
