Web Radio

Sub Reality Sandwich #23

Gonzo Web Radio is chuffed to bits to present a remarkable 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 week the titular submarine dwellers are in the frozen north way into the Arctic Circle, they listen to whale song with the inevitable Whales/Wales jokes,  Tim plays a demo of The Cramps singing ‘don’t eat anything off the sidewalk’,  There is Mongolian throat singing, and the submariners bemoan the rapidly melting icecaps. They play the strangest version of ’A Hard Day’s Night’ that I have ever heard, and Maisie the Cow has 23 dribbles coming from her mouth, but then again the number 23 seems very important this issue.

 There is even a stupid Russell Hunter joke. It doesn’t get much better than this.
