Gonzo Weekly #287
THE TARNATION ISSUE
I first heard the music of our cover songstrel fifteen years ago, whilst driving through Nevada's Valley of Fire National Park more than slightly chemically and herbally altered. I have been in love with her music ever since so it's about time for our regular championing of the sublime Paula Frazer and Tarnation whose new album is utterly awesome. John goes to see Nigel Kennedy, Alan raves about the Mathis Haug Band, Jon rambles on about Ken and Daisy Campbell and the Pagan Love Cult, while Roy goes on tour with Sniff n' the Tears
And there are radio shows from Strange Fruit, AND Mack Maloney, AND Friday Night Progressive, there are columns from all sorts of folk including Neil Nixon, and Roy Weard, and C J Stone, and Mr Biffo and Kev Rowlands AND the irrepressible Corinna . There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and tiger quolls who are havinga little snooze (OK, nothing to do with small dasyurids who are a little sleepy, 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!!!
