I'M THE GONZO BLOG DOO DAH MAN
Back on the chain gang, the Gonzo Blog thunders into life on a friday morning.
First up is part one of an exclusive interview with Judge Smith, who amongst other things was a founder member of Van Der Graaf Generator, and composer of a radical and massively entertaining series of 'song stories':http://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2012/04/exclusive-judge-smith-interview-part.html
I also have an excuse to wax lyrical about one of my favourite musical heroes; Eric Burdon. This comes complete with an exclusive slice out of the 'Lost Broadcasts' DVD which features a 1970 session filmed with multiracial band 'War'. Bloody hell its good:
We have a peek at the new Anthony Phillips album:
A look at Martin Stephenson then and now:
And a link to a massively subjective list of 100 albums that every sci-fi and fantasy buff should own:
That's it for today, but I do suggest that you all check out Jack White's first solo album 'Blunderbuss'. It really is astounding, and fulfills the promise that he has hinted at with his work with 'The White Stripes', 'The Raconteurs', 'The Dead Weather' and all the other side projects that I have forgotten! The weekend starts, umm.... here, I suppose.
