I'M THE GONZO BLOG DOO-DAH MAN
And so, the week trundles on. Mother-in-law and Prudence the dog have established a firm psychic connection, Graham and I are preparing for next weekend's Open Gardens weekend, and last evening the ceiling in the pink bathroom fell in. Just another day really...
Today we open Gonzo Daily, with part two of our Song by Song look at 'California Star', the smashing new album by Martin Stephenson:
Occasionally I veer away from purely Gonzo stuff, to write about music and books that interest me. Today I have a look at the new album by Dexys (not 'Midnight Runners' any more) and end up wittering about Michael Des Barres:
Graham finally presents his long-awaited review of Hawkwind at Southampton:

I have just found the most peculiar website yet to feature the irripressable (I think that's how you spell it) Michael Des Barres:

And finally, Jon Anderson has just become an ambassador for Accrington Stanley FC:
Oh wot a dream!
