Gonzo Weekly #353/4

Gonzo Weekly #353/4
In this peculiarly psychedelic issue we meet the lovely Melanie S Jane, Alan goes to see Andrew Weatherall and Luke Vibert , Doug critiques Simple Minds, Kev meets the Bob Lazar Story, Graham brings us news of the new Hawkwind album, Jon watches the Beatles-based fantasyfisck Yesterday, and describes the new book by Green Rupert Read. And there is oodles more...
Groovy eh?
Hail Eris!
And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney and Friday Night Progressive AND Strange Fruit, there are columns from Kev Rowland and Mr Biffo, C J Stone, and Roy Weard, but Neil Nixon and the irrepressible Corinna are on hiatus. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and antichinuses who have lost their shoes (OK, nothing to do with tiny marsupials who are searching for their footwear, 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.
