YER EDITOR SEZ:
Today, and the next few days in fact, are likely to be somewhat non-standard. Corinna is unwell and currently undergoing various tests at North Devon District Hospital. I don't know - at this time (2:30) - whether she will be staying in or not. I don't believe there is any cause for alarm, and I shall not be getting properly worried until we have a firm diagnosis which contradicts that supposition. But please remember us all next time you commune with whatever deities you believe in.
Much gratitude and love to the entire Phillipson family for what they have done for us. And also to Graham who cut short his sojourn with family in order to come back and help here.It is at times like this when one realises how precious one's friends are.

AND THE LATEST ISSUE OF THE GONZO MAGAZINE:
Gonzo Weekly #295-6
THE BANISHING THE SUMMERTIME BLUES BUMPER ISSUE
In this remarkably eclectic issue, Kev interviews the legendary Robert Berry about 3, his relationship with Keith Emerson and more. Alan goes to Holmesfest, Richard goes to the New Forest Folk Festival, and John goes to The Moon. Doug investigates Depeche Mode, Jon asks why YouTube is so cruel, and wonders whether Joan Aiken was the mother of Steampunk, and questions whether anyone will get his Dornford Yates joke... YOU CANNOT GET MUCH MORE ECLECTIC THAN THAT!
And there are radio shows from Strange Fruit, Mack Maloney, AND Friday Night Progressive, AND there are columns from all sorts of folk including Kev Rowlands, the irrepressible Corinna, Neil Nixon, Roy Weard, C J Stone, and Mr Biffo. 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!!!

SPECIAL NOTICE: If you, too, want to unleash the power of your inner rock journalist, and want to join a rapidly growing band of likewise minded weirdos please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org The more the merrier really.
* The Gonzo Daily is a two way process. If you have any news or want to write for us, please contact me at email@example.com. If you are an artist and want to showcase your work, or even just say hello please write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please copy, paste and spread the word about this magazine as widely as possible. We need people to read us in order to grow, and as soon as it is viable we shall be invading more traditional magaziney areas. Join in the fun, spread the word, and maybe if we all chant loud enough we CAN stop it raining. See you tomorrow...
* The Gonzo Daily is - as the name implies - a daily online magazine (mostly) about artists connected to the Gonzo Multimedia group of companies. But it also has other stuff as and when the editor feels like it. The same team also do a weekly newsletter called - imaginatively - The Gonzo Weekly. Find out about it at this link: www.gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.co.uk
* We should probably mention here, that some of our posts are links to things we have found on the internet that we think are of interest. We are not responsible for spelling or factual errors in other people's websites. Honest guv!
* Jon Downes, the Editor of all these ventures (and several others) is an old hippy of 58 who - together with a Jack Russell called Archie, an infantile orange cat named after a song by Frank Zappa, and two half grown kittens, one totally coincidentally named after one of the Manson Family, purely because she squeaks, puts it all together from a converted potato shed in a tumbledown cottage deep in rural Devon which he shares with various fish. He is ably assisted by his lovely wife Corinna, his bulldog/boxer Prudence, his elderly mother-in-law, and a motley collection of social malcontents. Plus.. did we mention Archie and the Cats?
