Gonzo Weekly #287

Gonzo Weekly #287
In this progressively poignant issue, Tim Rundall remembers his old friend Boss Goodman, Jon remembers Gerald Durrell, and reads Nelson DeMille, Doug goes to see Steven Wilson, Graham is in the desert talking about Hawkwind and Alan waxes lyrical upon The Hanging Stars.
#Hail Eris!
And there are radio shows from Strange Fruit, AND Mack Maloney, AND Friday Night Progressive, the columns from all sorts of folk including Neil Nixon, and Roy Weard, and C J Stone, and Mr Biffo are on hiatus this week although Kev Rowlands AND the irrepressible Corinna are present and correct. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and tiger quolls who have nothing to lose (OK, nothing to do with small marsupials who have got all fatalistic, 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.
