...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.

KEV REVIEWS RAZ

The Raz Band have been around for more than 35 years, based around Michael ‘Raz’ Rescigno on guitar and vocals, Jeff ‘Hutch’ Hutchinson on drums and vocals, Jim Manzo on bass and vocals, and Joey Molland on guitar vocals and production. Yes, that Joey Molland, from Badfinger among others.

This is, as one might have figured out already, their ninth studio album and for those who wonder where the name comes from then they perform “Call Me Raz” which tells the story (basically no-one could pronounce Rescigno’s surname). It feels very much like a late Seventies album, the sort of music which came out of the pub rock scene in the UK combining with the punk ethic from the States. Apparently they have worked with Marky Ramone and that makes total sense to me from a musical perspective although the songs are somewhat slower.
