Gonzo Magazine #205
We have exciting news about the new Pink Fairies album together with exclusive photographs of them in rehearsal, Jon burbles on about Alan Bennett and the movie of The Lady in the Van, Doug goes to see The Specials, and Alan meets Lenny Helsing, whilst we run a book review a century and a half late.
Good ‘ere innit?
And there are radio shows from Strange Fruit, Mack Maloney, and Friday Night Progressive, and because last week was a full moon, Canterbury Sans Frontieres. We also have columns from all sorts of folk including Roy Weard, Mr Biffo, Neil Nixon and the irrepressible Corinna. There is also a thrilling and slightly disturbing episode of Xtul. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and pademelons outside zoos(OK, nothing to do with small marsupials who have escaped from captivity, 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!!!
