GONZO WEEKLY #136: Jon meets Neil Nixon
Date Published: 27th June 2015

I have known Neil Nixon for a very long time, and it gave me great pleasure to welcome him into the Gonzo Family, first as a presenter of the Strange Fruit radio show, and then with his book 500 Albums you won’t believe until you hear them.  He thought up the idea for this book, though it was mainly a case of downloading the sort of things that have been going round in his head since he could first process a thought.

You could regard the knowledge displayed inside as an impressive achievement or a cry for help. Either way, he’s unlikely to change his behaviour now.

When not writing books he juggles a range of jobs, one of which involves managing an undergraduate course in Professional Writing. A useful sideline of this course is the involvement with a community radio station – Miskin Radio – and the chance to present their alternative show, Strange Fruit, on which much of the music and many of the artists discussed in this book have been played.

Last week I was doing my own inimitable thing that mainly involved sitting in my favourite armchair and playing with a small kitten who serendipitously shares a nickname with one of the Manson Family, when I realised that I really should have interviewed him long ago.

So I popped him an email and then gavce him a ring...

Friday Night Progressive #200
Date Published: 27th June 2015

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.

He writes: I’ve been a huge music fan ever since my parents bought me a transistor radio and I would listen to the sixties pirate music stations at nights under the covers. This love of live music has stayed with me to this day and I still love standing in a small club like the Borderline in London with some mates and watching a band with a pint in my hand. With the Strange Fruit radio show, I want to continue the trend of doing themed shows and playing the music I love..

GONZO WEEKLY #135: Jon meets M Destiny
Date Published: 20th June 2015

It wasn't long after I started running the twin cultural behemoths of The Gonzo Daily and The Gonzo Weekly that Rob Ayling, the Gonzo Grande Fromage, and a friend if mine for the past twenty seven years suggested that we make Gonzo Web Radio a proper Internet Radio Station. We could get a British Government broadcasting license, he suggested and host radio shows which appeal to the sort of people who read the magazine and buy the records and books. What a bloody good idea, I said, always easily enthused by Rob's ideas, and I went off to make it happen.

I had not been much of a radio buff since the end of the seventies, but I threw myself happily into the task of looking for shows that we would be able to syndicate. Most of the shows that I discovered were depressingly bad, but some most definitely were not. I cannot remember how or where I discovered Friday Night Progressive and its host M Destiny, but I was immediately impressed by the guy's attitude, and the way that the show has become the hub of a veritable community of artists and musicians, and I was soon sucked into the creative zeitgeist of the whole thing.

So I diffidently write to M Destiny. Would he be interested in a collaboration? Much to my pleasure and, I have to admit, surprise, he accepted, and we soon became comrades in arms. On occasion I have sat in on the radio shows as they are broadcast. I think that the mixture of performance and interactive chat room is a peculiarly 21st Century set up, but it is one which I believe works extremely well. The show has also introduced me to some excellent new music, most notably the extraordinary talents of Astronomusic from Brazil who were kind enough to do an interview for us and become our cover stars earlier in the year.

M Destiny wrote this about his show: 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.

The more I see of the whole governing concept of the Friday Night Progressive artistic model, the more I like it, and I am convinced that as the music business recovers from the recent catastrophic crash and progresses towards the middle years of the century it will be shows like FNP and magazines like this one who will work together more and more and forge strange and exciting new partnerships, and bring about great things.

When I found out that this week (although, because of the way that our syndication works, we shall not be featuring the show on Gonzo Web Radio until next week) FNP and M Destiny are celebrating their fourth anniversary, it seemed blindingly obvious that we should feature them as our cover feature this issue, and so I picked up my telephone and gave M Destiny a ring.....

CANTERBURY SANS FRONTIÈRES: Episode Twenty Two
Date Published: 13th June 2015

CANTERBURY SANS

FRONTIÈRES:

Episode Twenty Two

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?

This episode we dig deeper into the recently released Hugh Hopper archives, as well as his brother Brian's "Canterburied Sounds" collection of home tape recordings, including a phenomenal 1972 Caravan instrumental demo. Also, the newly surfaced, earliest existing recordings of Gong from 1968 and something very punchy from their 2014's "I See You" album, an insane piece of prepared piano from Lindsay Cooper's private tape archive, Robert Wyatt singing a poignant John Lennon song as well as singing backing vocals for his biographer's band, Richard Sinclair singing lyrics written by novelist/fan Jonathan Coe, some "Bitches Brew" inspired Donald Byrd from 1970, a gem from the 80's King Crimson lineup, a Japanese acid-folk masterpiece from 1975, Japanese Canterbury-heads Happy Family from last year, and some loveliness from early 80s feminist collective Jam Today. From the Canterbury of today, there's a full live set from Lapis Lazuli, recorded here last December."

GONZO WEEKLY #134: John Shuttleworth interview
Date Published: 13th June 2015

Over the years I have had the signal honour of interviewing many famous men and women, but the pinnacle of my career came this week when I interviewed the living legend, that is John Shuttleworth.

I received the following curriculum vitae from a shadowy figure in a dark raincoat who scared the living daylights out of me when he accosted me in Tesco and insiasted that I include it in this week’s magazine.

Who he was, or why and how he tracked me down to the fresh pasta counter I have no idea:

Name: John Shuttleworth

Address: Oo I can't tell you that. Alright then - Walkley, Sheffield.

Occupation: Well, I used to be a security guard for a sweet factory in the Rotherham area, and before that I worked for Comet. Now I'm a versatile singer/songwriter. (I also do a bit of drama, and I'm available for instore promotions, theme nights, sheltered accommodation etc.) 

Parts Played:

Wishee Washee in Aladdin at Dinnington Alhambra; Ethiopian Slave in South Yorkshire Amateur Operatic Society's production of Aida; a Waiter in Just Good Friends - unfortunately you only see the edge of my tray as Paul Nicholas's head is in the way (his hair is very thick and lustrous, you see); Talent Contestant in BBC TV's The Paradise Club. (Hey, I've done quite a bit really haven't I?)

 

Special Skills:

Swimming underwater - though I haven't attempted it for a while. (There's always too many kiddies in the shallow end). Carpentry, Pingpong.

 

Ambition:

To become successful in the sphere of popular music.

 

Agent:

Impresario Ken Worthington TV's Clarinet Man.

 

Favourite Colour: Fawn.

For some reason that I truly don’t understand he also insisted that I talk to some bloke called Graham Fellows.

I vaguely remember meeting him before, just after I split up with my first wife and he told me that he empathised with me. “I know what its like to be jilted, Jon,”  he said.

However, I have no idea why Mr Shuttleworth, or should I refer to him as ‘Maestro’ because somehow it seems more appropriate, wanted me to interview this Fellows fellow, but when a star of Shuttleworth’s magnitude asks you to do something, one does not demur for a moment.

Interviewing this masterful songwriter was one of the great moments of my life,  equal only, probably, to the day that I managed to breed my SouthAmerican Aequidens for the first time.

GONZO WEEKLY #133: Jon meets Liz Lenten
Date Published: 6th June 2015

Liz Lenten formed AUBURN in the summer of 1999. Their first gig was at the jam-packed launch party of Scarlet Records held at the salubrious and smoky Madame JoJo's in Soho to a completely packed and enthusiastic house. 

Their first EP, Sweet Sebastian, received extensive airplay and sold out of its limited pressing within 2 weeks. They then teamed up with producer Tim Pettit, (Travis, Sun House and Carlene Carter) and recorded For Life, which also got great radio support and the band toured the UK and played many live radio sessions. 

The debut Album DREAMS was released in 2003 and AUBURN toured with SOPHIE ELLIS BEXTOR in the UK and EUROPE, playing to 40,000 people. In 2005 CRY reached no 5 in the indie video charts after which they took a break and Liz concentrated on parenthood! 

Since then Liz has continued to work as a vocal coach, artist manager, record label, songwriter and choral director. She was 'SING UP' (governments' national singing campaign) lead facilitator/vocal advisor for Lincolnshire; has conducted the London Mozart Players Orchestra with the South Holland Choirs; written for and directed a 1000 voice kids choir for 'Sing 66' and manages several artists including award-winning folk artist ELIZA CARTHY and New Yorker GALIA ARAD.

I am very fond of Liz, and never need much of an excuse to talk to her, and so, when I heard that all sorts of things had been happening on Planet Liz I phoned her up...

Friday Night Progressive #196
Date Published: 30th May 2015

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.

Strange Fruit #120
Date Published: 16th May 2015

Strange Fruit is a unique two-hour radio show exploring the world of underground, strange and generally neglected music. All shows are themed and all shows set out to give the most hardened of sound-hounds some new delight to sample. The show is also unique in providing homework for undergraduate students on North West Kent College’s Foundation Degree in Professional Writing (who dig up many of the odd facts featured in the links between tracks). The show is broadcast on Miskin Radio every Sunday from 10-00-midnight. Every other week the show is now presented by Jeremy Smith and as the two promotional pictures that he sent consisted as one of him covered in mud and the other of him covered in guinea pigs he is obviously mad as a bagful of cheese, which means he will fit in here just fine!

He writes: I’ve been a huge music fan ever since my parents bought me a transistor radio and I would listen to the sixties pirate music stations at nights under the covers.   This love of live music has stayed with me to this day and I still love standing in a small club like the Borderline in London with some mates and watching a band with a pint in my hand. With the Strange Fruit radio show, I want to continue the trend of doing themed shows and playing the music I love..
