The Gonzo Daily - Sunday
Last night although Martin Eve came over
again I am not hungover
does this mean I am growing up?
or just have no
money to go to the shop?
Because although we are doing fine
afford to buy red wine
in the quantities I used to until recently
why I'm slightly healthier, see?
But the big question is when my finances
will I just stick in this comfortable groove
or will this happen?
(I think it might)
will we go back to drinking on a saturday
Barbara Dickson, Pink Fairies, Genesis, Steve
Hackett, Robert Wyatt, Stargrace, Jon Anderson, Yes, Hawkwind, and Daevid Allen
fans had better look out!
The latest issue of Gonzo Weekly (#114) is
available to read at www.gonzoweekly.com, and to download at http://www.gonzoweekly.com/pdf/. It
has Barbara Dickson on the front cover and inside there is an interview by me in
which she talks about her new album and her work with Troy Donockley, Doug goes
back to 1976 and the Genesis 'Seconds Out' Tour, I critique the extraordinary
new Robert Wyatt biography, and also burble on about Bob Dylan, we send the
lovely Stargrace to a desert island, tell you about new Pink Fairies recordings,
marvel at the intrepidness of Steve Hackett, and Xtul are on the road to
Norwich, and there are shows from the multi-talented Neil Nixon at Strange Fruit
and from M Destiny at Friday Night Progressive, and the titular submarine
dwellers are still lost at sea. There is also a collection of more news,
reviews, views, interviews and southern dibblers wearing new shoes (OK, nothing
to do with small marsupials in search of snazzy footwear, 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!!!

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?
