Gonzo Magazine #199
In this magnificently groovy issue Doug goes to see the latest incarnation of Yes and is very impressed, Alan, Jon and Tim bid farewell to the Marmite-like Richard Neville, and John waxes lyrical about Linda Imperial. And Alan goes to a folkie pub and visits Graham Keen’s exhibition 1966 and All That, and interviews the man himself. Jon, on the other hand, finishes Miss Peregrine's peculiar trilogy.
Good ‘ere innit?
And there are radio shows from Strange Fruit, Mack Maloney, and Friday Night Progressive takes a week off. We also have columns from all sorts of folk including Roy Weard, Mr Biffo, Neil Nixon and the irrepressible Corinna. There is also a thrilling and slightly disturbing episode of Xtul. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and pademelons outside zoos(OK, nothing to do with small marsupials who have escaped from captivity, 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!!!
