CD Review: New Releases From Indie-Artists James Young, Ray Vaughn And Grit

British musician and author James Young is getting his "Songs They Never Play On The Radio" album reissued through Gonzo Multimedia. Fans will remember Young as a member of the band, Faction along with Nico from the Velvet Underground. After Nico's death in 1988, James Young wrote a book about their adventures together and one year later released the album. It features Young performing mostly solo as companion piece to the book and includes excerpts of Nico talking as Young uses her voice within many of the songs. Highlights of the album included the spoken poem of "Down By The Wannsee," the dark folk-rock delivery of "Burn Away" and live versions of the piano ballads "Dog" and "My Funny Valentine." To find out more about the new reissue of James Young's "Songs They Never Play On The Radio," please

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.
