Graham has arrived safely in America, and yesterday Charlotte and I did some successful and rather enjoyable filming. Chatting to Graham via Facebook Messenger, apparently Boston is "muggy" and he will be flying out out to Phoenix in about six hours. Apart from this there is a serious dearth of news to share with you all.
Changing the subject completely, is there anyone reading this who has any experience in coding apps? Even more importantly, if you do, would you be prepared to lend your expertise to us for a few hours? Email me please at email@example.com.
Forgive me for always banging on about our webTV show, but it matters a lot to me, and I would be grateful for as many people as possible to see it, and spread the tidings of it far and wide:

And by the way chaps and chappesses, a trip to the Jon Downes megastore seems to be in order: if you want to make me a happy fellow, you can:

DAVE BROCK INTERVIEW
Gonzo Weekly #284
THE NO LOVE LIKE STRANGE LOVE ISSUE
In the week where things get stranger than strange, Doug interviews the mighty Strangelove, we interview Biff Vernon about a series of maritime art projects in Lincolnshire, John gives us a debriefing about Record Store Day 2018, Alan remembers the Necessaries, and Jon muses on Morrissey and remembers Anarchopunk LPs.
And there are radio shows from Strange Fruit's Neil Nixon doing something rather naughty, AND Mack Maloney, AND Friday Night Progressive, there are columns from all sorts of folk including Neil Nixon, Kev Rowlands AND the irrepressible Corinna, and Roy Weard, and C J Stone, tho' Mr Biffo are sadly absent this week. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and long nosed potoroos who have stood around waiting for other potoroos (OK, nothing to do with small marsupials who have decided to stage a reading of the Samuel Beckett classic, 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!!!
