Monday morning at Blog Central, and its all go. This afternoon at some point I will be interviewing Martin Stephenson, and tomorrow I am interviewing Dan Wooding, author of the newly reissued Rick Wakeman biography.
In the meantime we have some great stuff for you. We have great news from Troy Donockley:http://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2012/05/prog-log-troy-donockleys-messages-has.html
If you are in California, Mimi Page is up and about today:http://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2012/05/mimi-page-record-surplus-santa-monica.html
Following on from my review of the smashing Frank Zappa record label DVD I reviewed yesterday, I was looking for a vintage clip of Wild Man Fischer when I found this:http://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2012/05/this-i-was-not-expecting.html
By the way, if you missed the original review read it here:http://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2012/05/from-straight-to-bizarre-bloody-amazing.html
As I always find inappropriate behaviour on Children's TV funny, here is a completely off-topic news story that made me laugh:http://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2012/05/robert-calvert-new-cd.html
A new CD from the mighty Robert Calvert:http://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2012/05/robert-calvert-new-cd.html
By the way, we did a book of his poetry earlier in the year, and you can buy it here:http://www.amazon.co.uk/Centigrade-232-Robert-Calvert/dp/1908728078/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1336387691&sr=8-1
(As it was the first book we did for Gonzo, I am plugging it shamelessly and unmercifully, so there!)
Auburn, fronted by the lovely Liz Lenten have been on tour over the Bank Holiday weekend. I truly think they are something very special, and will - I hope - be talking to Liz about the tour later in the week. In the meantime, courtesy of Le Grande Fromage himself, here are some photos from the first night:http://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2012/05/first-pics-from-auburn-tour.html
Although I am a devotee of sophisticated, complex music like 'Yes' or other progrock greats, some of the best music ever made has only three chords and bucketfulls of attitude. Here, Michael Des Barres does 'Wild Thing', and I do my best to cajole him into doing 'Louie Louie':http://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2012/05/michael-des-barres-does-wild-thing.html
And finally, last, but certainly not least, a student film project featuring the music of Mimi Page:http://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2012/05/student-film-project-featuring-music-of.html
And did I tell you we have reached 10,000+ hits?http://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2012/05/in-which-we-voluntarily-blow-our-own.html
See you tomorrow...
