Gonzo Magazine #230
THE HEARTFUL OF SOUL ISSUE
In order to provide a perfect literary counterpoint to you guzzling chocolate eggs and waving your arms around in delight, here is an issue in which Jon meets Binky Womack (yes, folks, he is one of those Womacks), Doug writes about Kate Bush, Neil writes about the Great Beast, and Alan roams the highways and byways of Lithuania in search of musical delights. And yes, there is lots more, and it is all free...
It’s all free!
And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney, Friday Night Progressive, Strange Fruit, the sixth of Jeremy Smith's Seven Deadly Sins radio shows, and because it was a full moon this week another episode of 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 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!!!
