http://www.gonzomultimedia.co.uk/about.html Louis has done a remarkable job on the new CFZ website, and everybody who has seen it agrees with me. I am childishly excited about the prospect of being able to share it with you all. Apart from that, the new episode of On the Track premieres tomorrow and you’ll be able to watch it here: https://youtu.be/PLxCftKDURg Have I got anything else to tell you? Probably but I can’t think of it. https://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2021/06/david-essex-official-documentary-in.html David Essex Official Documentary in Production https://gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.com/2021/06/john-lennon-at-mike-douglas-show-1972.html John Lennon at Mike Douglas show 1972 full
COMING THIS WEEKEND
GONZO TRACK OF THE DAY: Gong - Flying Teapot
THOM THE WORLD POET: The Daily Poem The latest episode of On the Track went up on Saturday and features the gang returning to the Forest of Dean and the latest nonsense about the Loch Ness monster being a cetacean stiffy, is currently the second fastest set of viewing figures that we’ve ever done. So we must be doing something right. It features: - Mike Davis in the studio - The singing dog of North Devon - The team return to the Forest of Dean - Hunting for big cats in the Forest - Could this be a big cat den? - Carl recaps the FoD project - Dr. Charles Paxton at the WW - Whale Penises - an explanation for some long-necked sea serpents? - Schlong necked sea monsers - Could this be an explanation for the Loch Ness monster? - Topography of Inverness examined So, if you want to attend a visual entertainment consisting of hard science and a smattering of weird shit, interspersed with us dicking about in an increasingly surreal manner, check the latest episode out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHQLWeUM-rM&t=640s And here we have another shameless plug: My book ‘Wild Colonial Boy’ is the story of my early life in Hong Kong, and how I first became interested in Natural History, and more specifically cryptozoology, and there are several very little known cryptozoological mysteries discussed therein. It is very much like a darker analog of Gerald Durrell’s memoirs of his childhood in Greece, and I would’ve called it “My Family and other Sociopaths” if it wasn’t for the fact that I didn’t want to be sued either by Durrell’s estate, or my family. You can find out more and buy it signed from the link below: https://forteanzoology.blogspot.com/2021/01/jon-s-book-about-hong-kong.html C’mon, make a curmudgeonly old bugger happy. And by the way chaps and chappesses, a trip to the Jon Downes megastore may seem to be in order: https://gonzotesting.blogspot.com/2018/07/a-notion-of-shopkeepers.html Meanwhile I continue to pretend that I am a popstar, because now I have sold eleven whole copies of my new album Coldharbour. If I continue at this rate I will get a silver disc sometime at the beginning of the next millenium. Coldharbour, by the way, can be found here: https://jondownes1.bandcamp.com/releases I think it is really rather good, but then again I would say that wouldn't I? AND THE LATEST ISSUE OF THE GONZO MAGAZINE: Gonzo Weekly #443/4 THE CHICKEN SUIT ISSUE www.gonzoweekly.com This magazine continues to go off on strange tangents that I never expect, but I am very happy to see it do so. What is in this week? Ooooh lots of things. Such as Discordianism, New World Ordure, Del Bartle founder of The Sid Presley Experience, Wounded Buffalo Beats, Anarchy in Hebden Bridge and oodles more... And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney and Friday Night Progressive, AND Merrell Fankhauser, and the Real Music Club, AND Strange Fruit, and Mr Biffo, there is a column from Kev Rowland, and C.J Stone, but Mr Biffo, Tony Klinger and Neil Nixon, are on hiatus. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and dibblers who have got the blues (OK, nothing to do with tiny marsupials who are listening to the new Bob Dylan album, 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!!! ..And the last few issues are: Issue 443-4 (Rubber chicken) https://www.flipsnack.com/9FE5CEE9E8C/gonzo-443-4.html Issue 441-2 (Rick Wakeman) https://www.flipsnack.com/9FE5CEE9E8C/gonzo-441-2.html Issue 441-2 (Rick Wakeman) https://www.flipsnack.com/9FE5CEE9E8C/gonzo-441-2.html Issue 441-2 (Rick Wakeman) https://www.flipsnack.com/9FE5CEE9E8C/gonzo-441-2.html Issue 441-2 (Rick Wakeman) https://www.flipsnack.com/9FE5CEE9E8C/gonzo-441-2.html Issue 439-40 (Prince Phillip) https://www.flipsnack.com/9FE5CEE9E8C/gonzo-439-40.html Issue 437-8 (Yes) https://www.flipsnack.com/9FE5CEE9E8C/gonzo-437-8.html Issue 435-36 (Hawkwind) https://www.flipsnack.com/9FE5CEE9E8C/gonzo-435-6.html Issue 433-34 (Freda Payne) https://www.flipsnack.com/9FE5CEE9E8C/gonzo-433-4.html Issue 431-32 (Kosheen) https://www.flipsnack.com/9FE5CEE9E8C/gonzo-431-2.html Issue 429-30 (Ocean Aid) https://www.flipsnack.com/9FE5CEE9E8C/gonzo-429-30.html Issue 427-8 (2021 ia Bosch) https://www.flipsnack.com/9FE5CEE9E8C/gonzo-427-8.html Issue 425-6 (Paul McCartney) https://www.flipsnack.com/9FE5CEE9E8C/gonzo-425-6.html Issue 423-4 (KLF) https://www.flipsnack.com/9FE5CEE9E8C/gonzo-423-4.html Issue 421-22 (Christmas) https://www.flipsnack.com/9FE5CEE9E8C/gonzo-421-2-pb.html Issue 419-20 (John Lennon) https://www.flipsnack.com/9FE5CEE9E8C/gonzo-419-20-pb.html Issue 417-8 (gIG) https://www.flipsnack.com/9FE5CEE9E8C/gonzo-417-8.html Issue 415-16 (Phideaux) https://www.flipsnack.com/9FE5CEE9E8C/gonzo-415-16.html Issue 413-14 (Rick Wakeman) https://www.flipsnack.com/9FE5CEE9E8C/gonzo-413-14.html Issue 411-12 (Extinction Rebellion) https://www.flipsnack.com/9FE5CEE9E8C/gonzo-4011-12.html Issue 409-10 (Covid) All issues from #70 can be downloaded at www.gonzoweekly.com if you prefer.

You can download the magazine in pdf form HERE: http://www.gonzoweekly.com/pdf/ 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 email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are an artist and want to showcase your work, or even just say hello please write to me at email@example.com. 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 a recently widowed old hippy of 61 who - together with a Jack Russell called Archie, an infantile orange cat named after a song by Frank Zappa, three other cats, 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 a motley collection of social malcontents. Plus.. did we mention Archie and the Cats?
