Gonzo Weekly #345/6

Gonzo Weekly #345/6

You will have to check people name spelling as still can't read it very well, but I think it is okay .. In this particularly eclectic issue, Alan sees Jah Wobble, Daniel Gaudi, Mark Stewart & RDF (Radical Dance Faction) and interviews their singer Chris Bowuber, the only person who has been in every line up of the band.  Doug gives us a potted history of Goth, including Siouxie and the Banshees and the Cocteau Twins, Steve visits the Jarawa people of the Andaman Islands, Jon waxes lyrical about the lovely Melanie S Jane, reviews the new book by J.T. Wilson, and bitches on about the state of the nation, whilst we go to Glasto to critique Hawkwind and Stormzy.  And finally we go behind the scenes of Rick Wakeman’s new box set.

Groovy eh?

Hail Eris!

And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney and Friday Night Progressive AND Strange Fruit there is a columns from Kev Rowland, but Mr Biffo, C J Stone, and Roy Weard, Neil Nixon and the irrepressible Corinna are on hiatus.  There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and antichinuses who have lost their shoes (OK, nothing to do with tiny marsupials who are searching for their footwear, 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.
