...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
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.

THE RAZ BAND UK REVIEW

raz
THE RAZ BAND
#9
Gonzo Multimedia
For the last thirty-five years, The RAZ Band has been recording and performing their own brand of original songs. Recent years have seen them bunging out a best of and a 2015 album, “Madison Park”.
This new release, produced by band member and former Badfinger Joey Molland, features eleven new songs and if you get your finger out, the first 1000 copies include a limited edition live EP, recorded in Los Angeles on December 8, 2018.
So have they made their jazz odyssey or are they sticking to a beefy seventies power pop kick. The latter, you’ll be glad to know. The current lineup of Michael ‘Raz’ Rescigno on guitar & vocals, Jeff ‘Hutch’ Hutchinson on drums & vocals, Jim Manzo on bass & vocals, and
Joey Molland on guitar vocals & production know there way around a melody and there are plenty of them on offer here. Oddly, for me, I prefer it when things kick back a little so ‘Curveball’ and ‘In The Meantime’ were the winners for me.
Over on the live disc it sees the band reaching back into days of yore on four songs as well as giving three of the new boys an early work out. An enjoyable throwback.
