Gonzo Magazine #204
In this week's exciting edition, Doug goes behind the scenes of Rick Wakeman and Tony Ashton's legendary TV show Gastank. We have a sneak preview of the long awaited new Pink Fairies album, and also reveal news about the new Al Atkins record. Jon and Corinna go to see Focus, Davey goes to see Robin Trower, we have amazing graphicky bits from Martin Springett of The Gardening Club, Jon muses upon Budgie, and Alan goes to the Berwick Film Festival...
Good ‘ere innit?
And there are radio shows from Strange Fruit, Mack Maloney, and Friday Night Progressive. We also have columns from all sorts of folk including Roy Weard, Mr Biffo, Neil Nixon and the irrepressible Corinna. There is also a thrilling and slightly disturbing episode of Xtul. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and pademelons outside zoos(OK, nothing to do with small marsupials who have escaped from captivity, 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!!!
