Gonzo Weekly #331/2

Gonzo Weekly #331/2
We mark the passing of Scott Walker, an extraordinary talent, the likes of whom we shall never see again, Alan goes to the London College of Communication, Elephant and Castle art exhibition, Graham reveals part two of his look at Hawkwind's demicentennial, Jeremy goes to see Bob Mould, Jon muses on gender and reviews a book about London by Barry Miles, Kev looks at the recent tragic events in New Zealand, and there is lots more...
Hail Eris!
And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney and Friday Night Progressive AND Strange Fruit. AND there is a column from Kev Rowland, and one from Tony Klinger and one from C J Stone, and Neil Nixon, Roy Weard, Mr Biffo, 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.

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.
