Friday Night Progressive #158
Date Published: 23rd August 2014

I first came across Friday Night Progressive totally by accident, but I soon found myself beguiled by the style and taste of presenter M Destiny who presents a weekly two-hour show showcasing all sorts of progressive music that you are unlikely to hear anywhere else.  This is surely a man after my own heart.  I also very much approve of the way that it is the hub of a whole community of artists, musicians, and collaborators.  I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do.  Welcome aboard, chaps.

Hello, I am M Destiny host of Friday Night Progressive. You will find it to be an incredible independent internet broadcast show. But it’s more than that. We tend to boast that the musicians played on FNP are above the status quo. This includes the multi-instrumentalist and the educated musician. We tend to shy away from computer generated creations and rely on talent using musical instruments and steer this talent for purposes of shear inspirational indulgence. It is only in the FNP chat room where you will find the most talented musicians packed at one time into such an honored space.

Sub Reality Sandwich #17
Date Published: 23rd August 2014

Gonzo Web Radio is chuffed to bits to present a remarkable new radio show put together by none other than the lovely Jaki Windmill and the irrepressible Tim Rundall. An anarchic mixture of music, politics, current affairs and all sorts of other things really wrapped in a surreal miasma of post-psychedelic credibility. Sounds good?  You bit sweet pondos it does.

Tim approached me some weeks ago.  Apparently before he died Mick Farren told him about Gonzo Web Radio and some of the plans Rob and I had tentatively began to put together.  Would we like to broadcast some of the stuff he had recorded with Mick?

I’ve heard some silly questions in my time, but this takes the biscuit.  Of course we would. Mick Farren was one of my greatest heroes, and the fact that he took an interest in this magazine and helped me steer it into the direction in which it is currently sailing, meant that dear Tim’s question was completely superfluous. 

So I waited to see what would happen.  Soon after that I got approached by Jaki.  Apparently she has been co-hosting a radio show broadcast from a conceptual submarine together with Tim for some time.  Would we like a whole slew of brand new shows for Gonzo Web Radio?  Of course we would. 

Last week, because everything got turned upside down by the Weird Weekend there was a minor cock up and we got the notifications of last week’s show wrong. Please forgive us oh mighty submarine dwellers.

This week we are back to whatever passes for normality in the Gonzo Weekly  offices (even though it is the editor’s birthday and he is depressingly sober). However, this week the submarine is in Ibiza and the crew are less than impressed. Cue disco biscuit jokes.

Maisie the cow actually enjoys the ‘repetitive beats’. Tim remembers meeting William Burroughs, Jaki remembers Nico, they play a tribute to Robin Williams and they argue whether Mexico is a long way from Ibiza or not. They also talk about Mexican UFOs and other things.

Listening to this radio show is one of my favourite moments of the week. Long may they run.

GONZO WEEKLY #91: Jon meets Stu from Galahad
Date Published: 15th August 2014

WARNING FOR USERS OF GOOGLE CHROME ONLY: AT THE MOMENT THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE GONZO MEDIA PLAYER. PLEASE CLICK ON ONE OF THE OTHER LINKS, AND USE THE LINK IN THE DIALOGUE BOX TO LISTEN TO THIS SHOW

Galahad are an English Progressive rock band formed in 1985. They have released 8 studio albums, 4 live albums and 3 rarities collections. Over the last 25 years they have played with the likes of Pendragon, IQ and Twelfth Night. Galahad have performed their own shows and at festivals in Europe and North America, and have sold tens of thousands of albums despite never having had a major record deal. All releases are on their own 'Avalon Records' imprint other than some re-issues which are released in association with Polish label 'Oskar Productions'. In 2012 and after 27 years of existence Galahad released their first ever LP 'Battle Scars' in conjunction with Ritual Echo Records, on high quality 180 gram vinyl, in a gatefold sleeve, as a limited edition pressing of 300 which is already fast becoming a collectors item.

Stuart Nicholson talked about Galahad's early days:

"...the band was formed just after the so called second wave of ‘Prog’ bands such as Marillion, Pallas, IQ, Twelfth Night, Pendragon etc. of Prog bands came to the fore in the early Eighties. They all started around 1978 – 1981 and we started in 1985 after the bubble had effectively burst, but didn’t really get going seriously until 1990 onwards. To be honest we really did play just for fun in the early days and weren’t really that concerned about record deals etc. It was only after playing with some of the bigger bands when we thought. Actually, we are just as good as these guys so why not give it a go..."

Galahad have been through the wars recently; their longstanding bass player, Neil Pepper, died in 2011, being replaced recently by Tim Ashton, who played bass for the band between 1989 and 1992.  Against the background of such personal turmoil, they have released two of a series of three EPs which are coming out this year and are writing new material for an album which will probably not come out until 2016.

Next year is the thirtieth anniversary of the band, and they are planning some extra special surprises for us all.

It seems to be a good time, therefore, to telephone main man Stuart Nicholson and have a chat about the band’s past, present and future…….

CANTERBURY SANS FRONTIÈRES: Episode Eighteen
Date Published: 15th August 2014

WARNING FOR USERS OF GOOGLE CHROME ONLY: AT THE MOMENT THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE GONZO MEDIA PLAYER. PLEASE CLICK ON ONE OF THE OTHER LINKS, AND USE THE LINK IN THE DIALOGUE BOX TO LISTEN TO THIS SHOW

We at Gonzo Web Radio are very proud to bring you Canterbury Sans Frontières - a podcast dedicated to the music of the 'Canterbury Scene' and more. Creator Matthew Watkins writes: 

As with Canterbury Soundwaves, a new three-hour episode will be released with each full moon.I decided to wind down Canterbury Soundwaves so that I didn't end up (i) repeating myself, (ii) scraping the bottom of the Canterbury barrel, or (iii) becoming increasingly tangential. This new podcast broadens the musical remit, so it'll be about one-third 'Canterbury sound', together with progressive/psychedelic/experimental music from the Canterbury of today, the remainder being a mix of music from various times and places which I feel to be in a similar spirit of creative adventurousness. I'll be doing a lot less talking, and the programme will be less expository – so no interviews, barely-listenable bootlegs, etc.

I also plan to include guest one-hour mixes from various musicians from the current music scene in Canterbury (Episode 2 features a mix from Neil Sullivan from Lapis Lazuli).

And for those of you who wonder what Matthew was referring to when he writes about Canterbury Soundwaves we have brought you all the back catalogue of that as well. Those wacky guys at Gonzo, eh?

EPISODE EIGHTEEN: Featuring Egg, Caravan, Kevin Ayers (solo, duetting with Lady June and playing bass with Soft Machine), a couple of short Hatfield pieces, a couple of Eno collaborations, an Italian Terry Riley soundalike, some millenial Afrobeat, live psy-trance from System 7 in Kyoto 2011, new music from Canterbury 2014 in the form of Kairo, Lapis Lazuli and Syd Arthur, plus a second hour-long mix of Stereolab and related projects from guest contributor LTJ Bunkum [sic].

GONZO WEEKLY #90: Jon meets Steve Bolton
Date Published: 9th August 2014

WARNING FOR USERS OF GOOGLE CHROME ONLY: AT THE MOMENT THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE GONZO MEDIA PLAYER. PLEASE CLICK ON ONE OF THE OTHER LINKS, AND USE THE LINK IN THE DIALOGUE BOX TO LISTEN TO THIS SHOW

I first met Steve Bolton in 1990 or 1991.  My first wife and I had finished a tour with Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel during which we had become particularly friendly with the soundman Roy Weard.  A few days before the end of the tour he asked us whether we fancied going to a gig in London.

At the time we were publishing a magazine called ISMO which was very much a precursor for Gonzo Weekly, except for the fact that it had nothing to do with Gonzo and it wasn’t weekly.

 However, it had much the same mix of music, humour, anarchism and general malcontendedness as this current organ (oo-er missus) and only goes to show that either I was a rather prescient man in my late-20s, or that I am totally socially retarded now I am in my mid-50s.  It so happened that we were going to be in London doing something completely different on the days that Roy mentioned, so we agreed.

It was only then that Roy explained that the lead singer and guitarist of this band called 6Foot3 was a bloke called Steve Bolton, who had been Pete Townshend chosen amanuensis during the tour in the late 1980s when – due to his ever-increasing tinnitus – The Who geezer was unable to play electric guitar on stage.  He spent the tour standing in a weird acoustic beehive affair strumming away at an acoustic guitar whilst doing an extremely funky thing on lead was none other than Roy’s mate Steve.

We went along to a venue in Greenwich and I can truthfully say that I don’t think I’ve ever been in such a loud concert. 

My ears have since gone the way of Pete Townshend’s, and whilst I think it would probably be most unfair to try to blame this circumstance upon the first time I saw 6Foot3, they were truly the loudest and most brutal noise that I have ever heard on stage since.

Brutal, yes.  But elegantly brutal as well. I think that one of my favourite memories of them was their exceptionally stylish, guitar-led version of Jacques Brel song Jackie, as sung most famously by Scott Walker. Here I will make another admission.  Whilst I had vaguely listened to Scott Walker before this, I was so impressed by 6Foot3’s rendition that I went to listen to Walker’s version again and so discovered the man who to this day the man who is my favourite male singer.

Totally by chance I met Roy Weard again last year at one of the last concerts that Mick Farren played with The Deviants, and we soon picked up where we had left off 20 years before.  It also happens, that a year ago, I met one of my favourite authors – C J Stone – and published a book of his through Gonzo Publishing.  Stone is also a friend of Steve Bolton’s, and through the agency of one or another of these good fellows, Steve contacted me on Facebook. 

We have been chitter-chattering for some months mostly because again after an unfeasible length of time he has reformed 6Foot3, and I have mentioned the fact on a number of occasions in these pages.

The obvious thing to do next was to interview him, and I really had no idea why it took me so long to realise this. 

However, on Wednesday afternoon this week I gave him a ring and we had a fascinating conversation about 6Foot3 and just a few of the other things that he has done in a remarkable career.  Would you believe that we didn’t actually have time in our conversation which was interrupted by my various recalcitrant hounds, to even mention The Who, but that will keep for next time.

Sounds good?  You bit sweet pondos it does.

Tim approached me some weeks ago.  Apparently before he died Mick Farren told him about Gonzo Web Radio and some of the plans Rob and I had tentatively began to put together.

Would we like a whole slew of brand new shows for Gonzo Web Radio?  Of course we would. 

This week  the submarine is in dry dock on the coast of Madagascar and we even have a playlist:

GONZO WEEKLY #89: Judy Dyble
Date Published: 2nd August 2014

Judy Dyble is really one of those legendary performers who very nearly achieved Syd Barrett status.  As her self-written biography sheet reads:

Born in 1949 when rationing was still part of daily life and Britain was recovering from the greyness and worry of the war years, Judy was the third of four children whose early years were spent in a prefabricated bungalow surrounded by gardens in North London.

Moving into a maisonette in Wood Green when Judy was 10, she and her sisters and brother were edging into the teenage years in the heady mix of rock and roll teddy boys, beatniks and jazz, the stories of folk and the pure joy of pop. All three girls had started piano lessons but only Judy continued, to the fury of her sisters when the piano lesson coincided with the start of Ready! Steady! Go! (or was it Popeye?) and the TV was turned off so Judy could learn another bit of music. Her teacher was very into dance music, so the music ranged from quicksteps to foxtrots and that kind of stuff.  Judy asked for, and was given, the sheet music for Let There Be Love and was miffed that it didn’t include instructions on how to play like George Shearing.

However, onward to the years of youth clubs, then folk, blues, jazz and soul clubs, often all housed in the back rooms of the same pub but on different nights, and the first of the bands at the age of 16 -Judy and the Folkmen - who practised a lot and performed very little, but whose debut (and only) gig at the Hornsey Conservative Club’s Candlelight Soiree was a triumphant success, until you saw the newspaper photo of some rather terrified Soiree-ers being serenaded while they ate their supper.

But with a newly acquired autoharp in hand (easier to carry than a piano) Judy formed a loose connection with other musicians in the Muswell Hill area, and became the longhaired girl singer when an acoustic set was required with the musicians who later became Fairport Convention.

She appeared on the first Fairport Convention album, did a bit of recording with the band who were later to become King Crimson, made one album as half of a duo called Trader Horne (named after a character my friend Richard Freeman wrote about in one of his books) and then disappeared for the next thirty years.

She would have been considered one of British progressive music’s great lost talents had she not emerged from the shadows in the early years of this century with a string of exquisite records. 

The last two of the studio albums have been released through Gonzo Multimedia, which is where I came in.  I have interviewed Judy many times over the last couple of years, and even went to a psychedelically bucolic festival in Kent where I filmed one of her very few live performances.

She must have enjoyed it because, although that was only the second or third show they had done in many years, she has since done quite a few more and even released a live album.

I always like an excuse to talk to her, so last week I phoned her up and we had a very pleasant chat….

GONZO WEEKLY #89: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Date Published: 2nd August 2014

Lou Stein is a London based Theatre Director/Writer who founded the Gate Theatre, Notting Hill and has worked with such actors as Dame Helen Mirren, Clive Owen, Sir Patrick Stewart, Chris Eccleston, Sir John Mills, and Helena Bonham-Carter in London theatres including the West End, The Royal Court, and for the BBC.

I was a fan of the writings of Dr Hunter S Thompson a long time before I started working for Gonzo Multimedia.  Although I do not deserve it, several commentators when reviewing my books in the late 1990s, and the early years of the decade that irritates me when people call it ‘The Naughties’ described me a Forteana’s answer to the good doctor.

This is all very flattering, but completely untrue.  Okay there were superficial similarities; especially then, but far less now, I drank considerably more than I should, and indulged in the abuse of various other substances.  I also wrote some of my best known non-fiction books in a slightly racy first person style, but the bare fact remains – Hunter Stockton Thompson (1937 – 2005) was a genius, and one of the greatest men of letters that American literature has ever produced.  I am a journalistic hack who has been lucky enough to make a few quid over the years by writing about things I have done.

Thompson’s best known work is undoubtedly Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, written in 1971 and published a year later.

“The basic synopsis revolves around journalist Raoul Duke (Hunter S. Thompson) and his attorney, Dr. Gonzo (Oscar Zeta Acosta), as they arrive in 1970s Las Vegas to report on the Mint 400 motorcycle race. However, they soon abandon their work and begin experimenting with a variety of recreational drugs, such as LSD, ether, cocaine, alcohol, mescaline, and cannabis. This leads to a series of bizarre hallucinogenic trips, during which they destroy hotel rooms, wreck cars, and have visions of anthropomorphic desert animals, all the while ruminating on the decline of culture in a city of insanity.”

The book is a masterpiece which has never quite received the acclaim that many people feel that it should, mainly because of its subject matter.  It was made into a film in 1998, which – although entertaining enough – was ultimately unsuccessful and did not manage to bring Thompson’s sparkling and often magickal prose to life.

Back in 1984, theatrical director Lou Stein wrote a version for the stage, which – surprisingly – met with Thompson’s full approval.  Nine years after Thompson took his own life, the play has been revived and is part of the Edinburgh Festival.  The day after the final run-through, I caught up with Lou for a chat about the project …

I had a long chat this week with Joey Molland

Gonzo Web Radio is chuffed to bits to present a remarkable new radio show put together by none other than the lovely Jaki Windmill and the irrepressible Tim Rundall. An anarchic mixture of music, politics, current affairs and all sorts of other things really wrapped in a surreal miasma of post-psychedelic credibility.

Sounds good?  You bit sweet pondos it does.

Tim approached me some weeks ago.  Apparently before he died Mick Farren told him about Gonzo Web Radio and some of the plans Rob and I had tentatively began to put together. 

Would we like to broadcast some of the stuff he had recorded with Mick?

I’ve heard some silly questions in my time, but this takes the biscuit.  Of course we would. Mick Farren was one of my greatest heroes, and the fact that he took an interest in this magazine and helped me steer it into the direction in which it is currently sailing, meant that dear Tim’s question was completely superfluous. 

So I waited to see what would happen.  Soon after that I got approached by Jaki.  Apparently she has been co-hosting a radio show broadcast from a conceptual submarine together with Tim for some time.

Would we like a whole slew of brand new shows for Gonzo Web Radio?  Of course we would.  This edition features even more peculiarities from the communication deck of the titular submarine, and a peculiar discussion about what sort of sandwiches would be prepared by their bovine crewmate. It may be just me, but it seems even more peculiar this week, but then again we are living in very peculiar times.

 What is not to like?

The revolution may not be televised, but it’s certainly coming over on the virtual airwaves.  Listen to it live on Gonzo Web Radio.

I had a long chat this week with Joey Molland

I first came across Friday Night Progressive totally by accident, but I soon found myself beguiled by the style and taste of presenter M Destiny who presents a weekly two-hour show showcasing all sorts of progressive music that you are unlikely to hear anywhere else.  This is surely a man after my own heart.  I also very much approve of the way that it is the hub of a whole community of artists, musicians, and collaborators.  I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do.  Welcome aboard, chaps.

Hello, I am M Destiny host of Friday Night Progressive. You will find it to be an incredible independent internet broadcast show. But it’s more than that. We tend to boast that the musicians played on FNP are above the status quo. This includes the multi-instrumentalist and the educated musician. We tend to shy away from computer generated creations and rely on talent using musical instruments and steer this talent for purposes of shear inspirational indulgence. It is only in the FNP chat room where you will find the most talented musicians packed at one time into such an honored space.
