Gonzo Weekly #319/20

Gonzo Weekly #319/20
Alan goes to Hebden Bridge to see Brix Smith and other heroes of modern psych, Jon muses about Extinction Rebellion, and reviews a book about 1950s Hong King, Graham presents the second part of his look at Hawkwind in 2018, Richard M goes to see Big Country, and Alan and Phil visit Arcadia..
And - as always - there's lots of other stuff as well.
#Hail Eris!
And there are radio shows from Strange Fruit, Mack Maloney, Friday Night Progressive, AND Canterbury Sans Frontieres AND there are columns from Kev Rowland, and C J Stone, and Mr Biffo BUT Neil Nixon, and Roy Weard and the irrepressible Corinna are 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.
