THE HELTER SKELTER IS COMING DOWN FAST ISSUE
NOTE: BECAUSE OF A PROBLEM WITH OUR ISP THE GONZO WEEKLY SITE IS UNAVAILABLE, SO USE THE ABOVE LINK
In this extraordinarily groovy issue, Alan and Phil discover that The Beatles were not as squeaky clean as they were portrayed, Jeremy goes to see Eddie and the Hot Rods and Department S, Neil explores Psychedelic Australia, Graham looks at the latest Hawkwind news, Doug continues with his history of Split Enz, and Jon once again visits Mu Mu Land alongside a bloke called Andy Gell, and sulks cos he isn't allowed to let smoke grenades off in his garden.
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!!!
