Strange Fruit #116
Date Published: 18th April 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..

Friday Night Progressive #190
Date Published: 18th April 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.

GONZO WEEKLY #126: Martin Eve interview
Date Published: 18th April 2015

4th Eden is better known as Martin Eve who lives in North Devon. The name '4th Eden' is just a re-work of Martin's name. Martin has been writing music since the early 1980's and has been compared to artists such as Mike Oldfield, Depeche Mode, Moby, Ulrich Schnauss and Ultravox. He only started re-recording compositions back in 2009. To date he has written in excess of 100 tracks (of which some are available to hear on his Soundcloud page) with many collaborations. In 2012, his first CD was released called 'Infinity' through Global Journey. Currently he is a full time 'immature' student at Petroc College in Barnstaple studying a degree in Music Technology & Production. The new EP, 'Organik Reflektion' will be released on April 17th and 'Pictures On A Soundscape' will follow later this year.

I caught up with Martin earlier in the week to chat about the complexities of the Organik Reflektion project.

Gonzo Weekly #126: Colin Watkeys interview
Date Published: 18th April 2015

About six months ago we covered a story about theatre director Colin Watkeys imagining of the opera Fall of the House of Usher by Peter Hammill and Judge Smith. Perforce it was a cut down version, but we sent along none other than Judge Smith, who wrote:

“Apparently, Peter Hammill has, on occasion, performed a suite of numbers from the opera. I have never seen this, but the Director, Colin Watkeys, and the performer, Jamie West have followed a similar concept in presenting a few individual solo songs from the opera, linked, in this case, with suitable quotations from the Poe short story.

Jamie West is a tall, bearded young man, who plays good, clean guitar and equally precise keyboard. He also sings like an angel. Dressed in skinny jeans and a pork-pie hat, he delivered truly admirable versions of four tracks from the album, a selection of songs which more or less covered  the bare bones of the story.” 

Now a more intricate version is being performed, still directed by Watkeys, and we were so impressed by what Judge had told us about the first one that we phoned him up for a chat!

GONZO WEEKLY #126: Paul May interview
Date Published: 18th April 2015

In 2011 the rock world was buzzing with proof that good and evil can in fact work together in the form of former Judas Priest vocal legend and Holy Rage heavy metal frontman Al Atkins and Christian guitarist and music artist Paul May. Together these extreme opposites combine creating a powerful new CD called ‘Serpent’s Kiss’, now available on Gonzo Multimedia. The 10-track album is the product of two of the Midlands finest architects of rock and metal coming together to create something that is unique and totally exhilarating!

There are enough doses of melody and metal madness to entice all fans of the genre, and while it is solid, honest, working-class heavy metal, it also has its roots in contemporary metal with some fine axe-work and killer choruses. The cover art for Serpent’s Kiss is also unique as it was created by world-famous fantasy artist Rodney Matthews.

Al Atkins: More noted for forming UK’s Judas Priest and fronting them for four years, and laying down the foundations that would see them eventually selling 40 million albums worldwide. He also wrote songs for them that went gold like Dreamer Deceiver, Never Satisfied, Winter, Caviar and Meths, and Priest’s all time classic Victim of Changes. Al’s unique powerful vocal style sites influences by noted rock singers Roger Daltrey, Paul Rodgers and longtime friend Robert Plant. Al has done countless radio and TV interviews worldwide and recently was filmed for BBC TV British Heritage and Banger Films Canada for the metal evolution series on VH1. He has even written a book on his musical life about growing up in Birmingham, UK, alongside Robert Plant and Black Sabbath, called Dawn of the Metal Gods. Al has released 6 solo albums to date, toured the US twice, and has worked with Brian Tatler (Diamond Head), Dave Holland (Judas Priest), Dennis Stratton (Iron Maiden) and Bernie Torme (Ozzy/Gillan). Al recently released a new self-titled album with his offshoot band Holy Rage and has now teamed up with brilliant Christian writer/guitarist Paul May and recorded an album called ‘Serpent’s Kiss’, which Al says are the best recordings to date!

Paul May: Some people learn to play guitar, Paul was born (again) to play guitar! Paul has become respected for his passionate, soulful guitar work and noted for his explosive and exciting solos. As a world-class professional guitarist and songwriter, Paul has played and recorded sessions across the globe, touring and playing throughout the UK, Europe, USA and the Eastern block. Paul appears on around 50 albums to date, featured in both the secular and Christian arenas. Paul is also a record producer and has covered the entire spectrum of musical tastes in production. Paul has played, recorded with and produced alongside the bands and members of: Al Atkins (Judas Priest), Dave Holland (Judas Priest), Roy Wood (Move, ELO, Wizard), Jon Brooks (The Charlatans), Smokin Roadie/Tempest, MC5, V-Rats, Janus, A.N.D, Dave Rowley Band, Larry Norman and many others. Along with working with Al Atkins, Paul currently plays guitar with A.N.D and Temple Dogs.

‘Working with Paul May on the Serpent’s Kiss album was a fantastic journey,’ says Al. ‘From the opening song The Shallowing to the last song Theatre of Fools, it was an honour to have been asked by the brilliant guitarist Paul May to put this project together… Without a doubt this is one of the best albums I have appeared on since my early days with Judas Priest and that says something having written and recorded several of my own works.’

‘This album was meant to be,’ explains Paul. ‘When Al agreed to do the vocals it inspired me to write specific tracks tailored for his voice. Not only did Al deliver in abundance, he did so with world class! It’s what I’d call a ‘Classic Hard Rock/Metal’ album; that covers a wealth of subject matters and life experiences. It’s all rock ‘n’ roll! And a real triumph to me in so many ways. I just feel blessed! To again, be involved with such a great vocalist and friend and end up with such a cracking album is a gift indeed – rock on!’

Four years later they have produced three studio albums and a new anthology. It is always a pleasure to talk to Paul, so this week I rang him up for a chat...

Gonzo Weekly #124
Date Published: 4th April 2015

Karnataka are a Welsh progressive rock band that was formed in 1997 by bassist/guitarist Ian Jones, vocalist Rachel Jones and keyboardist Jonathan Edwards. The band very quickly built up a strong and staunch following.  Over a period of twelve years Karnataka  has released a number of well-received albums including Karnataka, The Storm, Delicate Flame Of Desire and more recently, The Gathering Light.

Despite undergoing a number of key line up changes, the band is still led by Ian Jones.  The new line up features, vocalist Lisa Fury alongside guitarist Enrico Pinnas, keyboardist Gonzalo Carerra and drummer Ian Harris.

In May 2010, Ian Harris, Gonzalo Carrera and Lisa Fury announced on their websites that due to personal reasons they would be leaving the band. It was announced in October 2010 that Ian Harris would be replaced by former Karnataka session drummer Louie Palmer, and in October 2010 multi-instrumentalist Colin Mold was revealed as having joined the band in a new role.

In February 2011, it was announced that Hayley Griffiths was the new lead vocalist for the band replacing Lisa Fury. Hayley was previously the lead vocalist with global phenomena Riverdance and Michael Flatley's Lord Of The Dance.

The band's new lineup was completed in March 2011, when Cagri Tozluoglu was announced as the band's new keyboard player. In Sept 2011 the new line-up announced an extensive 15 date tour of the UK would take place early in 2012, subsequently named the "New Light Tour". Due to the second departure of Palmer, the band were joined by session player Matt McDonough for the tour (and continued to tour with the band until 2014). Following the completion of the 2012 tour, Mold departed the band, and was not replaced.

The band filmed and recorded their show at The Met Theatre in Bury on the New Light Tour. The show was enhanced by lights and lasers, and filmed in high definition. The live DVD was released in late 2012. The band continued to tour this show into 2013.

The band revealed in August 2013 that they were working on a new album. It was revealed on 31 May 2014 that the band had hired drummer Jimmy Pallagrosi as an official replacement for Louie Palmer. The long awaited album was released on 7th March 2015, with the first copies being available at the concert in Derby and pre-orders shipped the next week. The album contains 8 tracks, including the title track, a '20 minute epic opus'. Other tracks on the album include Forbidden Dreams, Poison Ivy and Home to Me, which were previewed on the Forbidden Dreams tour in 2012/13. The band went on a UK tour starting on 28th February, playing every track from the new album each night.

After hearing the new album last week, I was so impressed that I phoned up Ian Jones for a chat

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..

Friday Night Progressive #185
Date Published: 14th March 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.

Gonzo Weekly #121 - Jon meets Annie Haslam
Date Published: 14th March 2015

Annie Haslam is an English progressive rock vocalist, songwriter and visual artist. Annie is best known for her five-octave voice and for being the lead vocalist for the English Classical Rock band Renaissance. She was born in Bolton, Lancashire, a cotton-mill town. As a child Annie wanted to be a nurse, a ballet dancer, and later and more realistically, a fashion designer. She became a fashion student in Cornwall and ended up working for several clothing designers in London before ending up with a Saville Row tailor, where she admits that she learned much more than she had learnt being in the fashion houses!

Then came the music…

There was already music flowing through her family: her father George, who had been an amateur comedian singer (he was a tenor), and brother Michael, who was managed by Beatles manager Brian Epstein. He toured with the Beatles on their Christmas package-tour in the early '60s. But it was much later when Annie realised that she too was a singer.

She began studying under opera singer Sybil Knight in 1970 and developed her extraordinary five-octave vocal range. In 1971 she became the lead singer of Renaissance after answering an ad in Melody Maker. She auditioned for the band in Surrey and the rest is history. Renaissance produced a surprising amount of groundbreaking music in a surprisingly short period of time. It only took five years for them to go from playing small clubs to shows at the Carnegie Hall and later The Royal Albert Hall.

In 1977 she began her solo career with her album Annie in Wonderland, which was produced by Roy Wood who played most of the instruments, and who also duetted with her on one track I Never Believed in Love. The album was a new venture for Annie, Roy taking her into different realms of music from jazz to pop to classical!

Annie also performed Reaching Out with the London Symphony Orchestra on the Intergalactic Touring Band album. She has since released eight studio albums, three of which were released through her own record label, White Dove Records, the highlight of that CD collection being Still Life with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Louis Clark; a semi-classical masterpiece.

In 1989 Annie secured a record contract with Epic records and released a self-titled album produced by Larry Fast. Annie co-wrote a song called Celestine with Larry, and she also wrote a song with Peter Bliss called One Love. Justin Hayward was a guest on The Angels Cry, a song that he had written originally for Agnetha from ABBA.

 She has also collaborated with Steve Howe, Raphael Rudd, Pete Townshend, Phil Collins, Justin Hayward, Tony Visconti and the Carl Perkins family, to name but a few.

The ‘Live’ Studio Concert, recorded in Philadelphia in 1997, was Annie’s first solo DVD release.

 Annie released an EP called Night and Day, her first solo recording for some years, with Welsh rock band Magenta in 2006. The song was specially written for her by the band. Annie - who had recently become a painter - contributed the artwork for the EP, the art inspired by a story told to her by Christina from Magenta!

Then came the Art…

This came out of the blue when she first started back in 2002. But she has spread her wings artistically since, and become very prolific. Her paintings grace the walls of homes across the world including China, Russia, Japan, Germany, Holland, Switzerland, England, USA, Canada, South America and Italy. Annie had three pieces of art shown in the Florence Biennale in Florence, Italy in December 2005.

In addition to gallery showings she has four hand painted guitars in various Hard Rock Cafes and was commissioned by Martin Guitars to paint one of their Dreadnought acoustic guitars, which is now displayed in the company’s guitar museum in Nazareth, PA. They also commissioned her to paint an acoustic guitar for the NAMM Music Convention, LA in January 2007. Apart from keeping her art gallery stocked with new paintings online, Annie paints commissioned electric violins for Wood's Violins. Mark Wood, who owns the company, is lead violinist with Trans Siberian Orchestra.

Annie currently resides in Central Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA. Last time we spoke to her was just after she and long term musical partner Michael Dunsford had reformed Renaissance and crowdfunded an extraordinary new album.

But then, after we spoke, tragedy struck and Michael Dunsford died suddenly. Showing immense bravery, Annie continued with the project, so when I telephoned her up last Sunday evening, we had lots to talk about…

GONZO WEEKLY #120: Jon and Billy James talk about Frank Zappa
Date Published: 7th March 2015

In this issue we review a recent DVD featuring FZ between 1969-73; this particular era of Frank Zappa's career has always been dear to me, so I was very much looking forward to watching the DVD. Then I discovered that one of the major contributors was our old mate Billy James, PR Guru with Glass Onyon, and mainman of the ever shifting Ant-Bee project.

So I gave him a ring......
