The Gonzo Daily - Monday
And so another week begins. I know perfectly well
that the week begins on Sunday, but that has never really made emotional sense
to me, so in my mind the week begins on Monday with Sunday being a peculiar time that exists outside the normal matrix of space-time when I sleep, read, or
do something completely self-indulgent. Today I am playing The Pink Fairies as I
wait for Tammy my student to arrive. Graham did a fantastic job building a new
cage for Martha the baby pigeon, and she looks much happier...
Crass, Steve Ignorant, Iona, Dave Bainbridge, Daniel Lanois, Cure, John
Parr, Peter Banks, Empire, Jon Anderson, Yes, Hawkwind, and Daevid Allen and
....New Seekers fans had better look out! The latest issue of Gonzo Weekly
(#106) is available to read at www.gonzoweekly.com
, and to download at http://www.gonzoweekly.com/pdf/
It has Steve Ignorant on the cover, and features an interview with him by
Yours truly. We also meet and chat with Dave Bainbridge of Iona about his new
album, and legendary record producer David Mackay about his new charity single.
Doug Harr goes to see Daniel Lanois (with exclusive piccies) and Mark Murdock
runs into Terry Bozzio. And we send Don Falcone to a desert island. Xtul are
back in the deep woods, and there are also new shows from the multi-talented
Neil Nixon at Strange Fruit and from M Destiny at Friday Night Progressive, and
the titular submarine dwellers are back with another episode of Sub Reality
Sandwich. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews
and animals coming in two by twos (OK, nothing to do with Noah's Ark, 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!!!

* The Gonzo Daily is a two way process. If you have any news or want to
write for us, please contact me at email@example.com
. If you are an artist and
want to showcase your work, or even just say hello please write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Please copy, paste and
spread the word about this magazine as widely as possible. We need people to
read us in order to grow, and as soon as it is viable we shall be invading more
traditional magaziney areas. Join in the fun, spread the word, and maybe if we
all chant loud enough we CAN stop it raining. See you tomorrow...
* The Gonzo Daily is - as the name implies - a daily online magazine
(mostly) about artists connected to the Gonzo Multimedia group of companies. But
it also has other stuff as and when the editor feels like it. The same team also
do a weekly newsletter called - imaginatively - The Gonzo Weekly. Find out about
it at this link: www.gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/…/all-gonzo-news-wots-fit
* We should probably mention here, that some of our posts are links to
things we have found on the internet that we think are of interest. We are not
responsible for spelling or factual errors in other people's websites. Honest
* Jon Downes, the Editor of all these ventures (and several others) is an
old hippy of 55 who - together with an infantile orange cat named after a song
by Frank Zappa puts it all together from a converted potato shed in a tumbledown
cottage deep in rural Devon which he shares with various fish, and sometimes a
small Indian frog. He is ably assisted by his lovely wife Corinna, his
bulldog/boxer Prudence, his elderly mother-in-law, and a motley collection of
social malcontents. Plus.. did we mention the infantile orange cat?
