Gonzo Magazine #239

Gonzo Magazine #239
Kev eulogises about New Zealand’s Miss Peach and the Travelling Bones, who are one of the best bands I have heard all year, John writes about the new sounds of the Summer of Love’s 50th Anniversary, Alan remembers the Isle of Wight Festivals at the cusp of the 60s and 70s, and Richard attends the Deke Leonard memorial concert, while Jon burbles about The Beatles.
And listen up Kiddies: It’s all free!
And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney, Strange Fruit, Canterbury Sans Frontieres 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 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!!!

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.
