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 Tom'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?"


On the day Britain is deciding whether to be in or out of the European Union, it seems a cat is making similar decisions...


i have  a cat
(who owns a cat?
she is a rescued cat
(she is her own cat!
and that is that -BUT
she likes to go out
then come back in
and then go out again
just like that /she an IN door/OUT door cat
if i make a cat door-other cats claw their way in
she lets in possums.she lets in raccoons
she does not know just what to do
she figures they need rescue too
so she is easy on admissions
we get emptied food bowls-and we KNOW it is not our kitten
that cat is a jazz cat-she licks and purrs and scratches and claws
she sometimes comes back the worse for so she sleeps-up high or on the floor
in boxes ,on newspapers,bed-anywhere we rest our head
you see our jazz cat is alive and well

and she still has nine tales to tell

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.
