Gonzo Magazine #229
THE MERCURY GOES INTO RETROGRADE ISSUE
I feel like one of those disaffected US Postal Workers who climb the water tower in the middle of the township and take potshots at starangers with a high powered assault rifle. But unfortunately my wife won't let me have a high powered assault rifle and there is no water tower so I will be having ice cream instead. However, first I have to tell you about the new issue of this remarkable little magazine of ours: Part Two of Jeremy’s EXCLUSIVE interview with Larry Wallis, Alan has arty hijinx in Lithuania, John looks forward to Record Store Day and other stuff, Richard profiles Warren Haynes, and Jon is wary of peculiar children...
It’s all free!
And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney, Friday Night Progressive, and Strange Fruit. We also have columns from all sorts of folk including Roy Weard, Mr Biffo, Neil Nixon and the irrepressible Corinna. 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!!!
