...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?

The RAZ Band Feat. Badfinger Legend Joey Molland To Release New Album “#9”

For Immediate Release

The RAZ Band Feat. Badfinger Legend Joey Molland To Release New Album “#9”

Featuring Joey Molland of Badfinger!

Los Angeles - For the last thirty-five years, The RAZ Band has been recording and performing their own brand of original songs, entertaining audiences across the US and globally. 

On March 30, 2019 Gonzo Multimedia will release the much anticipated new RAZ Band studio album “#9”. Produced by Badfinger legend Joey Molland, “#9” features eleven new RAZ Band songs. The first 1000 copies include a limited edition live EP, recorded in Los Angeles on December 8, 2018. 

This past December 2018 The RAZ Band recorded their first live album performing songs from the upcoming “#9” album as well as their most recent albums “Madison Park” (2015 Roadie Crew magazine album of the year) & “The Best of RAZ 1984-2015”. The live performance will be included as a bonus disc with the release of their new studio album “#9”.

As Michael Raz Rescigno states: “I'm excited that our first live album will be released with our new studio album. Our '#9' album was a great recording experience and was recorded, mixed and mastered in ten months from the end of 2017 through Sept 2018. We're also very excited that Joey Molland sings lead vocals on two of the songs on #9, one of which, 'Breadline Love' will be the first single off of #9. This is the first RAZ Band album featuring Joey singing lead vocals.

Featuring tremendous production by band member Joey Molland, The RAZ Band is looking forward to sharing “#9” with the world.

“I Met Raz back in the late 70's. I've played with The Raz Band for about 40 years, whenever I've had the opportunity, and I've played here and there on all the The Raz Band albums. It was great this time to join them in LA for the rehearsals before going in the studio and doing the tracks. We took a short break and went back in to do the overdubs and it was during those sessions I started to get a feeling about actually mixing and producing the album. I talked with the guys and they were cool about it so off I went. I hope you like what happened.” - Joey Molland

The RAZ Band members are Michael 'Raz' Rescigno on guitar & vocals, Jeff 'Hutch' Hutchinson on drums & vocals, Jim Manzo on bass & vocals, and Joey Molland on guitar vocals & production.

In November of 2015 Gonzo Multimedia released The RAZ Band's award-winning album “Madison Park”. Madison Park won the 2015 Album of the year award by Roadie Crew magazine editor Airton Diniz. In May of 2016 Gonzo released “The Best of RAZ 1984-2015”; both albums received rave reviews around the world. 

The RAZ Band has opened for Badfinger, Missing Persons, Berlin, Marky Ramone, Bill Ward, Iron Butterfly and others. In 2019 The RAZ Band will be performing in the United States as well as abroad. Tour dates are being booked.

TIME IS A MEASURE OF COUNTED BREATHS
Waiting for the bus of Fate,or the Ship of Fools
We live@different rates.Shift gears according to age and energies.
Pace of walking life,perambulating gardens,meditating
Speed of car or plane of existence/events piled upon events.
Slow deterioration health.Cracked,corroded arteries.
Heart based life aligned with thoughtfulness.
Art is how we choose.Slow frame or fast feral.
Choice is the illusion of choice.Life a Chapter of Unwritten Memoirs.
Stringing word pearls dazzling in the sun,moon diamond star nights
We align ourselves with sidereal time.Change time zones like clothes.
To be alive is every thing.

GARDENING CLUB REVIEW

https://www.seaoftranquility.org/reviews.php?op=showcontent&id=21700


Gardening Club, The: The Riddle
Last year I reviewed the self-titled album of The Gardening Club, originally released in 1983. The project is led by Martin Springett, a very talented singer/songwriter/musician. After a long time between records The Gardening Club is back with their second album titled The Riddle. Joining Springett (vocals, acoustic guitar) are Sean Drabitt (fretless bass), Wayne Kozak (soprano saxophone), James MacPherson (drums and synth solos) and Norm MacPherson (electric and slide guitar solos, gut string guitar, mandolin, bassoon, keys).

Like the first disc, this is an excellent slice of pastoral pop prog. It’s quite quirky and at first seems fairly simple but once you dig in there is quite a lot going on and the music is actually quite quirky. The album begins with the Beatles-like “The Riddle Overture” with its electric guitar ala George Harrison. The sound is lush with lots of tasty keys and guitar, with the slide work giving off a psychedelic vibe. “Whirled Away” is an upbeat mostly acoustic tune that is super catchy, especially Springett’s superb lead vocals. “Seven Year Old Poet” is slightly darker and more moody featuring subtle changes in direction and great slide guitar. The guitar work throughout the disc, both acoustic and electric, is a definite high point. A super catchy guitar hook denotes “Blues For Richard” while “Pauline” features some gorgeous saxophone. “Leaving Home” is another catchy number with a breezy melody and Springett’s warm lead vocals.
Overall, The Riddle is an excellent choice for those into the quieter side of progressive rock and comes highly recommended. Please check out The Gardening Club and Springett’s solo albums by clicking on the link below.

PEACEFUL TACTICS AND STRATEGIES
SO TO WILDFLOWER CHURCH
To learn how best to reclaim personal power
by devising individual and group techniques
to regain autonomy within this society.
There is no "other".No enemy.No aggressor.
We all fault and fail and freak out.Easier to learn
how and why,then devise alternative actions-
whether it be meditation,or altering tone,or simply running away,
Nothing will change unless something changes
And the first person to contemplate personal change -is me.
I will not do what i accuse others of.I learn best by example.
Role modelling for future actions,demonstrations,street theater
Internally,within the stage of domestic contradictions,
is where the changes begin and compound.World can wait outside
while i seek the peace within,to deal with the wilde world inside.

BOTH RIGHT & WRONG FAIL US
THEY DO NOT CONVINCE
They are so dogmatic.So imperative
So demanding we do things THEIR way
Even when we do,someone always wants to prove you wrong
Even when there are a million paths up the mountain'
Even when the mountain becomes a tiger of waters
And birds fly out of dragon eyes,and power shifts,uncomfortably
Like those YELLOW VESTS demanding change
Like Greta of 16 ,demanding change
Like Malala,demanding education for girls
Be clear where you are and where you are heading
There is no WRONG way.All ways are valid
Every poem is true somewhere.Every song has wings
And if you seek to berate yourself,well and good
But do believe that ho one believes you are wrong
You are simply exploring the WORLD AS IT IS

And ,as soon as you do-it changes!

SCOTT WALKER HAS DIED

Scott Walker, one of the most innovative and enduring songwriters of the 20th century, has died aged 76.
The news was announced by his label, 4AD. “For half a century, the genius of the man born Noel Scott Engel has enriched the lives of thousands,” a statement read. The cause of death has not been announced.
Thom Yorke, frontman of Radiohead, was among those paying tribute, calling him “a huge influence on Radiohead and myself, showing me how I could use my voice and words.”
