The Gonzo Daily - Monday
What a strange day! Torridge District Council's computers screwed up, and
knocked the first digit off the notification of all payments this week which
threw me into a tizz for a bit. BT have managed to delete my account with them,
and the oven has packed up. But apart from all that it is buisness as usual ...
um, that probably IS business as usual.

whilst the legendary Roy Weard continues his regular column, C J Stone does his,
A J Smitrovich continues thumbing through his Dad's LPs, and Mr Biffo has more
of his regular slices of insanity from the world of Digitiser 2000, and there is
a radio show from Strange Fruit, one from Friday Night Progressive and another
from Mack Moloney, and as there was a full moon this week we also have a show
from Canterbury Sans Frontières. There is also a collection of more news,
reviews, views, interviews and pademelons wanting a snooze (OK, nothing to do
with small marsupials who stayed up too late last night, 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!!!

SPECIAL NOTICE: If you, too, want to unleash the power of your inner rock
journalist, and want to join a rapidly growing band of likewise minded weirdos
please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org The more the merrier really.
* 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:
* 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 56 who - together with an infantile orange cat named after a song
by Frank Zappa, and a small kitten totally coincidentally named after one of the
Manson Family, purely because she squeaks, 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 young lady called Jessica. 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, and the adventurous kitten?
