...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?

I EVEN MET HAPPY PUNKS
THEY HUGGED AND CUDDLED AND RAGED
Their children invaded the stage-and played
with such an uninhibited way/smiles stayed
Conversation outside the coffee shop
while bands roared energetically inside
One or three came up to me,and accepted poetry
And they stayed !And read their works@open mic
And were salacious and respectful@the very same time
And even their child climbed on stage with Black Betty
and she filled her microphone in the very same way her mother did
And all were loved and lovable,hugged and huggable
Laughing,joking,drinking,smoking.Even making a mosh pit for poets
How wonderful-to be filled with wonder-and adapt to changed circumstance
When the walls of change move in closer-all you have to do-is dance!
