Gonzo Weekly #271

Gonzo Weekly #271
Gonzo Grande Fromage Rob Ayling talks frankly about his friendship with Fall leader Mark E. Smith who died this week, Alan concludes his surrealistic exposition featuring Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol, Nico and Alice Cooper amongst others, Neil explains all about Sharon Tandy, and Graham brings us up to date with Hawkwind as well as going into the studio with The Space Pharaohs Arizona’s leading Hawkwind tribute band. And meanwhile, Jon talks about the end of the world!
Hail Eris!
And there are radio shows from Strange Fruit, AND Friday Night Progressive, but Mack Maloney is absent this week due to problems beyond our control. The columns from all sorts of folk including Neil Nixon, Roy Weard, C J Stone, Mr Biffo are on hiatus this week, but we do have the irrepressible Corinna. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and southern dibblers who have gone for a snooze (OK, nothing to do with small marsupials who have probably got hangovers and have decided to have a little rest, 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.
