Slash and David Attenborough join Brian May in pro-badger supergroup

Slash, Shara Nelson and David Attenborough have joined Brian May on a new song dedicated to badgers. Badger Swagger, out today, is part of the England-wide campaign against this summer's badger culls.
The group are calling themselves Artful Badger and Friends. Their debut single was created by music producer Rob Cass, who has previously worked with acts including Estelle, Robbie Williams and Baaba Maal. "To me all nature is beautiful," he said in a press release. "This track is my humble contribution to stopping the needless slaughter of badgers."
Cass began planning the project after joining an anti-cull demonstration earlier this year. "We decided the best way we could help was to do what we do best: make music," he said. In addition to the artists named above, Badger Swagger includes contributions by Southend rapper Sonny Green and Sam and the Womp, whose debut single topped the charts last year. "[My solo] sounds like a badger riot," Slash announced on Twitter. "Or a bunch of hooligan badgers in a pub."

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.
