...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?
Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

JACKIE LEE REVIEW
JACKIE LEE/White Horses: Essentially retried since 1973, Lee is an Irish singer that pretty much was Petula Clark’s chief rival during Clark’s best 60s period. Just because Lee’s career was more Britcentric and often shone in the background certainly doesn’t make her chopped liver by comparison. What we have here is her biggest album paired up with other solo and group work that sounds just as swinging and mod as anything Tony Hatch frothed up. Of course, there’s the previously unreleased track from an album that was never released and seems to have disappeared. Anyone down with some mod recidivism will get this sweet confection right out of the box. Well done.
