Gonzo Weekly #377/8

Gonzo Weekly #377/8
In this phantasmorogorically phuturistic issue we look at the new book by John Higgs in which he provides a gleam of hope that perhaps the future isn't going to be quite as horrible as everyone is expecting. Alan muses on some new music to which he was introduced over the recent festive season, and also goes to see 'Infinity Forms of Yellow Remember'. Doug waxes lyrical on Tears for Fears, we have Focus live a few years ago, the latest from The Gardening Club, Graham described the funeral of Martin Griffin, ex-Hawkwind, and Jon talks about self aware telephone systems.
And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney and Friday Night Progressive AND Canterbury sans Fronieres AND Merrell Fankhauser, but no sign of Strange Fruit this week, there is a column from Kev Rowland, and one from Mr Biffo, and one from C J Stone, although Neil Nixon and Roy Weard, 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.
