Gonzo Magazine #203
This week, we discover the extraordinary art and music of Martin Springett of The Gardening Club, John investigates Cary Grace, we find that Scott Walker can still ...gasp... write tunes, Alan writes about Banksy and other street art, and we are not very impressed by the latest slice of Harry Potter marketing. And there is lots more besides.
Good ‘ere innit?
And there are radio shows from Strange Fruit, Mack Maloney, and Friday Night Progressive. 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!!!
