British Rock band Galahad was formed in Dorset England during the mid eighties. As it is a progressive rock band you might be forgiven for thinking they were named after the knight made famous in Arthurian legend. The truth is far more simple than that and a million miles away from legend, Arthurian or otherwise. The fact is that guitarist Roy Keyworth named the band after seeing of all things an invoice for fruit and vegetables with the name “Galahad Produce” at the top of the page.

Having finalised a name, the band played their first concert in late August 1985. Over the years they have released a number of well received albums and gigged extensively. Galahad’s most recent album entitled ‘Empires Never Last’, released in 2007, was named Album Of The Year by the members of the “Classic Rock Society”, and features guest performances from Karl Groom (Threshold), and Clive Nolan (Arena and Pendragon).

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.
