Gonzo Latest News: Gonzo on Wednesday

Date Published: 20th September 2017


The Gonzo Daily: Wednesday
 
Last night, due to me misreading what it said on Netflix, me and Graham and Mother sat down to watch the new Star Trek series. As it doesn't come out until next week we watched the middle one of the recent trilogy of movies, and - although Graham was scathing - Mother and I enjoyed it immensely and were far more impressed by it that I had supposed that I would be. Graham also managed to find our missing video camera which we have been looking for over the past six months. So things are slowly sorting themselves out.
 
And finally, Jimmy Page has sanctioned the release of the Yardbirds live at Anderson Theatre; something he has been blocking for nearly half a century. It is truly excellent news, because the bootleg has been one of my faves for yonks.
 
Forgive me for banging on about our webTV show, but it matters a lot to me, and I would be grateful for an many people as possible to see it, and spread the tidings of it far and wide:
 
 
The video quality is not quite as good as the original, but as it is intended for a very small screen I don't suppose it matters. The original versions remain up, for those of you watching on a computer. All future episodes will have entirely original music, so I don't expect there to be any more problems.
 
But now, here is the news:
 
THE GONZO TRACK OF THE DAY: THE BALLAD OF SIR CLIV...
HERMAN'S HERMITS IN THE NEWS
LEONARD COHEN IN THE NEWS
GEOFF DOWNES (NO RELATION) INTERVIEW
THOM THE WORLD POET: The Daily Poem
 
Gonzo Weekly #252
THE STRANGEFOLK ISSUE
 
In which Kev Rowland returns to dear old Blighty, goes to Cropredy, meets Richard Thompson, watches Fairport Convention and friends, pays a visit to Stu Nicholson in hospital, and more. Jeremy examines The Flaming Groovies new album, Alan reads Sammy Stein, and Jon grieves for an old friend...
 
And is there more? You can bet your pondohs there is. And it is all free/buckshee/gratis
 
Wooooot!
 
And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney, Strange Fruit, and Friday Night Progressive. We also have columns from all sorts of folk including Roy Weard, C J Stone, Mr Biffo, Neil Nixon and the irrepressible Corinna. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and common planigales who have cooked some stews (OK, nothing to do with small marsupials who have been sulinarily creative, 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!!!

SPECIAL NOTICE: If you, too, want to unleash the power of your inner rock journalist, and want to join a rapidly growing band of likewise minded weirdos please email me at jon@eclipse.co.uk The more the merrier really.
 
* The Gonzo Daily is a two way process. If you have any news or want to write for us, please contact me at jon@eclipse.co.uk. If you are an artist and want to showcase your work, or even just say hello please write to me at gonzo@cfz.org.uk. Please copy, paste and spread the word about this magazine as widely as possible. We need people to read us in order to grow, and as soon as it is viable we shall be invading more traditional magaziney areas. Join in the fun, spread the word, and maybe if we all chant loud enough we CAN stop it raining. See you tomorrow...
 
* The Gonzo Daily is - as the name implies - a daily online magazine (mostly) about artists connected to the Gonzo Multimedia group of companies. But it also has other stuff as and when the editor feels like it. The same team also do a weekly newsletter called - imaginatively - The Gonzo Weekly. Find out about it at this link: www.gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.co.uk
 
* We should probably mention here, that some of our posts are links to things we have found on the internet that we think are of interest. We are not responsible for spelling or factual errors in other people's websites. Honest guv!
 

 

* Jon Downes, the Editor of all these ventures (and several others) is an old hippy of 58 who - together with a Jack Russell called Archie, an infantile orange cat named after a song by Frank Zappa, and two half grown kittens, one totally coincidentally named after one of the Manson Family, purely because she squeaks, puts it all together from a converted potato shed in a tumbledown cottage deep in rural Devon which he shares with various fish. He is ably assisted by his lovely wife Corinna, his bulldog/boxer Prudence, his elderly mother-in-law, and a motley collection of social malcontents. Plus.. did we mention Archie and the Cats?
