Gonzo on Monday/Tuesday

Date Published: 06-01-2020

The Gonzo Daily: Monday

As something mildly related to the fact that Gonzo has put out a Steve Marriot album, I am currently working my way through the less trodden parts of his back catalogue, which means that today I am listening to the 1977 reunion album by the Small Faces, and it is considerably better than posterity has allowed us to believe, although the drumming is highly minimal and weird. Marriot still sang like a funky angel. Apologies to people who are still waiting for an OTT. Hopefully this will be recrifiedthis week, and there will also be a couple of unused vids for the Patreon crew.

Thank you to all of you who have sent kind words and prayers to us following Mother's death. They are very much appreciated. Please forgive us for keeping a low profile at the moment.


You guys have been doing massive amounts of praying for Corinna. I believe that the outpouring of good vibes transmitted electronically, being a little like a Tibetan prayer flag. Find out more:…

And by the way chaps and chappesses, a trip to the Jon Downes megastore may seem to be in order:…/a-notion-of-shopkeepers…
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:

I think it is really rather good, but then again I would say that wouldn't I?

And in this first issue of the new decade we say goodbye to Mother, and to Paul Whitrow. Alan hikes the Pennine Way, Doug eulogises Terry Hall, and Jon remembers a night with Dr Strangely Strange, Mad Iccy looks at the ups and downs of 2020, while Graham looks at the last 12 months of activity on Planet Hawkwind.

There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and antichinuses who have lost their shoes (OK, nothing to do with tiny marsupials who are searching for their footwear, but I got carried away with things that rhymed with OOOOS) than you can shake a stick at.

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 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 If you are an artist and want to showcase your work, or even just say hello please write to me at 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:

* 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 60 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 his lovely wife Corinna and a motley collection of social malcontents. Plus.. did we mention Archie and the Cats?
