siLLy puPPy
No this isn’t quite the “Radio Gnome Triology” despite the first short track being titled “Radio Gnome” but despite the lack of Steve Hillage’s spaced out echo guitar trippiness, Daevid Allen in cahoots with Gilli Smyth manages to create a healthy dose of Canterbury psychedelia on his own terms. CAMEMBERT ELECTRIQUE is the second release by Daevid Allen’s GONG and probably one of the most rockin’ of the entire GONG discography. On this release it is Daevid Allen who plays guitar and bass as well as handling the expected vocal duties. BTW although my remastered copy says the first track is “Radio Gnome” i see it listed as “Radio Gnome Prediction” on the very first vinyl release as well as other subsequent releases. How clever, hmmm?

This is an interesting transition album that feels like it has connections to the heavy psych of the 60s while branching out its tentacles into a new 70s space rock style garnished with all the zaniness and humor that the Canterbury scene was so famous for. If you listen to the old Wilde Flowers and Soft Machine demos with Daevid Allen still in the band, you can trace some of these riffs to those days, only with the addition of Gilli Smyth’s famous space whispering and the excellent addition of Didier Malherbe’s excellent sax and flute to create some really good solid musical madness on this one. This is a great example of how to combine the Canterbury whimsy with space rock, progressive heavy rock and healthy doses of anarchic psychedelia with totally original experimental elements.

This indeed was time of the birth of the space age hippie music and Daevid Allen’s decade long roster of ideas that were suppressed and underdeveloped really were allowed to bloom for the first time on CAMEMBERT ELECTRIQUE. This is really a fun album! Musically, lyrically, rhythmically etc. Just look at the zany titles of the songs: “Mister Long Shanks, O Mother, I Am Your Fantasy,” “Dynamite: I Am Your Animal,” “Fohat Digs Holes In Space!” This is just wonderful music being melodic, demented, innovative, unique, experimental, daring, sacrilegious, comical, uproarious and above all spaced out, maaaan! While most of GONG’s discography displays complex band interactions, this is the one that screams out that it’s Daevid Allen’s baby and what a cute and adorable little baby it is! Sadly Daevid passed away recently on 13 MARCH 2015. Thank you Daevid for all this excellent music and R.I.P. No doubt this music will entertain for a very long time to come :)

I have always felt this album to be seriously underrated. This was a film soundtrack to an Australian motorcycle racer Jack Findlay. So that means it would be very seriously ridiculous to expect Gong to be singing about Pot Head Pixies here and much more sensible to sing about Findlay himself. And that's what you get, you still get that classic Gong sound circa Camembert Electrique. It's still sounds like Gong as you come to know and love. You even get a variant of "Fohat Digs Holes in Space" called "What Do You Want?". This album was apparently recorded before Camembert Electrique, but apparently released after. If the fact the recognizable bass line you hear on "What Do You Want" sounds slower than "Fohat", it's probably because it's an earlier version where Christian Tritsch wasn't fully comfortable playing those bass lines at full speed as you do on "Fohats". I have often ran across albums that don't always receive favorable reviews, and I have a hard time understanding why, and this is one of them. To me, another one to have if you're into Gong!

What a huge improvement over Magick Brother! This is actually the beginning of Gong as we all know and love. Tim Blake was actually to join the group at this time, but Pip Pyle didn't like his synth noodling, so it had to wait until Pip left the group. Of course you don't have Steve Hillage here, he was in a Uriel/Egg spinoff called Khan at the time (whose Space Shanty from 1972 is an essential album of Canterbury prog). Aside from Daevid Allen and Gilli Smyth you have Didier Malherbe, Pip Pyle, and Christian Tritsch. This is a more aggressive and rocking than usual Gong, particularly the more polished followups on Virgin (the Radio Gnome trilogy). "You Can't Kill Me" sounds like classic Gong, but they really rock out. Quirkiness as you expect show throughout the album. "I've Bin Stone Before" is a rather obvious imitation of Bob Dylan (I'm thinking "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35"), but with added on Hammond organ. They get into space rock like "I Am Your Fantasy" with glissando guitar and Gilli Smyth giving her space whispers. "Fohat Digs Holes in Space" is another great piece of space rock with glissando guitar and repeating bass line. "Tropical Fish: Selene" certainly shows this band was starting to have greater ambitions. Although you might find some Pot Head Pixies on the album artwork, the mythology of Planet Gong had not yet been developed (that obviously would be found on the Radio Gnome trilogy). This album really blew me away and any fan of Gong should own this! It's also one of my favorites off BYG/Actuel (in fact, it was the last release on the Actuel subsidiary). The original LP also came with two inserts that included lyrics to all the songs and that typical quirky Daevid Allen artwork. Highly recommended stuff!

The Mystical
"You" is a Daevid Allen's Gongs' "Magnum Opus".

This album was my introduction to Gong and remains one of my favourite Gong albums. The album takes a few listenings to get used to, but once you are used to the whacky nature of the Lp you will find yourself swept away by atmospheric vocals, Steve Hillage's sweeping glissando guitar, Tim Blake's great (and well aged) synths, and Pierre Moerlen's incredible drum talent. The storyline is (as is characteristic to Daevid Allen's Gong) very whacky, and the eccentricity adds charm to the album and compliments the atmospheric textures of the music.

It is impossible to pick key tracks for this record as it works so beautifully as a cosmic story. The Lp is Part 3 of the infamous "Radio Gnome Trilogy" and is my personal favourite, in terms of the musicality, lineup and storyline.

Gong is just one of many bands that have received a cult following due to their eccentricities, but the "Radio Gnome" trilogy has fully justified their position among the top fusion/prog bands. "You" is an excellent display of talent on many levels, and deserves to be recognised as such.

This album is a masterpiece of progressive rock and jazz fusion, and is a treasured addition to my vinyl collection.

Before I bought this album I had only heard small parts of it, and to be honest I didn't understand it at all. I decided to take a chance and buy this record. After the first three tracks I wasn't completely blown away, but when the band kicked in on "Master Builder" I was hooked.

This era of Gong had very strong jazz influences, and they're displayed perfectly on the tracks "Master Builder", "A Sprinkle of Clouds", "The Isle of Everywhere", and "You Never Blow Your Trip Forever". This record is very Spacey and Psychedeilc, but it manages to pull of tight Jazz instrumentals. Steve Hillage really shows off his talent on this record, and gives us one of his greatest and spaciest performances to date.

This album is an absolute space rock classic and if you can get into it, it's very rewarding. My rating for Gong's "You" is a 5 out of 5. It's an excellent addition to any music collection.

This video contains live performances from 1990 Live on TV album. Four original members of GonG are present: Pip Pyle, Didier Malherbe, Gilli Smyth and an oddball-harlequin persona of the spiritus movens, Daevid Allen.

Performance is focused on their legendary Radio Gnome Invisible trilogy, with 3 starters from Camembert Electrique. Since I have no idea what GonG looked like on scene back in the early 1970s (that is, before I took a peek at several Youtube clips recently), I guess this DVD makes up a lot for that, the age of the performers notwithstanding.

In fact, seeing these unique art-performers in their senior age can just assure you how the music and art in general can surpass generations, years and ages if you wish. Musicianship is great, movie direction very good with several cameras shooting from different angles, while only the engagement of the dancers to invoke the mystical gnomey creatures may be seen as too over-stressed.

The finale presents perhaps too long goodbye with the extended "I Am You" jam, but when Daevid jumps down into the audience you can actually see the highly emotional and spiritual connection between the band and the people, done in an almost religious-like chanting. This is excellent video and should be seen by all those who have at least some knowledge of the Planet GonG trilogy repertoire!
