Gonzo Latest News: Gonzo on Friday/Saturday

Date Published: 15th December 2017


The Gonzo Daily: Friday/Saturday
 
And so, what is euphemistically known as 'The Festive Season' is trundling inexorably towards us like a bad tempered water buffalo on quetiapine. The Christmas double issue of Gonzo Weekly comes out tonight, following which the next issue of the magazine will be another double issue on the 6th of January, after which we return to some semblance of normality. However, the week after, I am scheduled to be doing two days filming with – of all people – one of Britain’s leading computer game manufacturers, so I am not promising that we will return completely to normal, even by then. Although it is not a time of the year of which I am fond, I do like to take the opportunity to spend some time with my loved ones (as well my friends Mr Smirnoff and Mr J. Daniels and Mr Tesco Brandy-Flavoured-Gutrot), and so neither the Gonzo Weekly office or the CFZ office will be fully functioning for the remainder of the year, but I will be in most days for an hour or two and can be contacted should anything urgent arise.
 
Episode 86 of OTT will be out next week, and I have every expectation that the next issue of A&M will be out before the end of the year.
 
Forgive me for always banging on about our webTV show, but it matters a lot to me, and I would be grateful for as many people as possible to see it, and spread the tidings of it far and wide:

We also have columns from all sorts of folk including Neil Nixon, Roy Weard, C J Stone, Mr Biffo and the irrepressible Corinna. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and southern dibblers who have blown a fuse (OK, nothing to do with small marsupials who are not good at household electrics, 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?
