Gonzo Weekly #307/08

Gonzo Weekly #307/08
And so we reach another year and the members of the editorial team go all Bag Productions on you. Alan started the "War is Over" ball rolling and Jon runs with it. Richard looks at Extinction Rebellion, and Carl wonders what moral lessons we can learn from The Walking Dead, Jon writes about The Residents, and Graham looks back on the last year on Spaceship Hawkwind.
And - as always - there's lots of other stuff as well.
#Hail Eris!
And there are radio shows from Strange Fruit, Mack Maloney, AND Friday Night Progressive, AND there are columns from Kev Rowland, and C J Stone, and Mr Biffo and Neil Nixon, and Roy Weard although the irrepressible Corinna is on hiatus.  There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and rock wallabies who've blown a fuse (OK, nothing to do with the relatively small macropods who are having electrical problems, 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.
