Gonzo Weekly #337/38

Gonzo Weekly #337/38
Nearly forty years after it first came out Gonzo are reissuing the only album by Zee - a duo consisting of the late Richard Wright of Pink Floyd and Dave Harris from Fashion. To mark this we have an exclusive interview with Dave. Meanwhile Alan is at London Remixed, Graham goes to Hawkwind Summer Sundae, Steve remembers the Phun City Festival organised by Mick Farren with the MC5 and all sorts of other groovy folk, Carl goes in search of Spaghetti Westerns and Jon is Chasing Eris and worrying about Greta Thunberg...
Hail Eris!
And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney and Friday Night Progressive AND Strange Fruit AND there is a column from Kev Rowland, BUT Neil Nixon, Mr Biffo, C J Stone, and Roy Weard,and the irrepressible Corinna are on hiatus.  There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and southern dibblers who are walking in twos (OK, nothing to do with tiny marsupials who are paired up, 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!!!

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.
