Gonzo Weekly #277
THE CAN BLUE MEN SING THE WHITES? ISSUE
We visit the Northeast of England to meet Davey and Nick from Auld Man's Baccie, Alan finds DakhaBrakha, an insane ensemble from The Ukraine, Doug starts to explore Split Enz and the Finn brothers, Neil looks at New Zealand psychedelia, and Mr Biffo pitches a new TV show.
And there are radio shows from Strange Fruit, AND Mack Maloney, AND Friday Night Progressive, there are columns from all sorts of folk including Neil Nixon, Kev Rowlands, Roy Weard, C J Stone, and Mr Biffo AND the irrepressible Corinna. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and southern dibblers who have gone for a snooze (OK, nothing to do with small marsupials who have probably got hangovers and have decided to have a little rest, 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!!!
