Gonzo Weekly #293
THE LITTLE PEOPLE OF THE STONES ISSUE
In this remarkably eclectic issue, which is one of my favourites for a while, Alan discusses the events surrounding this summer’s Solstice Celebrations at Stonehenge, Doug presents the first of two looks at the delectable Annabella Lwin and Bow wow wow, Jon looks at where this magazine stands vis-a-vis the music press as a whole, we celebrate a partial victory for the tree protestors over Sheffield City Council, John goes to Yorkshire for the Shangri-La of speakers, Jeremy critiques the new book on the Flamin’ Groovies, together with fantastic pix from George Alexander’s collection, and Graham brings us up to date with Hawkwind news.
And there are radio shows from Strange Fruit, AND Mack Maloney, BUT Friday Night Progressive is on hiatus this week, there are columns from all sorts of folk including Kev Rowlands AND the irrepressible Corinna, although Neil Nixon, and Roy Weard, and C J Stone, and Mr Biffo are having a well-deserved week off. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and red kangaroos who've lost their shoes (OK, nothing to do with the largest extant macropods who are in a quandry with regards their footwear, 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!!!
