Gonzo Weekly #290
THE OVERNITE SENSATION ISSUE
We continue to trawl the counterculture with this particularly groovy issue, in which Jon talks to Frank Zappa’s younger sister about her book, her brother and other things, Jeremy goes to see Wreckless Eric, Doug goes to see Echo and the Bunnymen, Alan goes to see Woody Pines, Graham riffs on Hawkwind, Jon writes about Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets, and there is loadsa other stuff as well ….
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, and Roy Weard, and C J Stone, and Mr Biffo and Kev Rowlands AND the irrepressible Corinna . There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and Queensland tigers who are having a little peruse (OK, nothing to do with a hypothetical dasyurid which may or may not be related to thalacoleo who are briefly scanning through the pages of a new book by their favourite author, but I got carried away with things that rhymed with OOOOS) than you can shake a stick at.
