Gong is as much about a unique political and spiritual world view and philosophy as it is about a unique style of music that draws influences from psychedelia, jazz, folk and various ethnic musics. Gong began in the early 1950s in Melbourne, Australia, in the mind of the eccentric youngster, Daevid Allen. A self-described freak since childhood, he was beaten up frequently by classmates at the exclusive Australian Public School. Inspired by Beat poetry, Allen traveled the world after graduation.

During 1960, Daevid Allen emigrated to England with wife Gilli Smyth. The room he rented in London was part of a mansion owned by the Wyatt family. Daevid Allen struck up a close friendship with young Robert Wyatt, as well as Robert's school chums in Canterbury. After playing guitar with several

Miler72
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.

Gongmaison - "Gong", as in the Daevid Allen-led incarnation of the band, circa the classic Angel's Egg trilogy, and "maison" as in French for "house", as in house music. The Gongmaison project saw Allen pull together a range of musicians - including Gong stalwarts such as Didier Malherbe - for an experiment in fusing the classic Gong sound with modern-day dance music.

The connection isn't as left-field as you might think - Steve Hillage and Miquette Giraudy would launch a second career as System 7 a couple of years down the line when they realised the potential of taking their Rainbow Dome experiments and applying those ideas to dance music, and Allen's own The Wise Man In Your Heart sounds an awful lot like a prototype of the genre to me. Still, whilst the experiment is fascinating the album simply makes me yearn for another listen to You instead of continuing with the interminable Flying T. Dance Mix.

On the whole, worth a look for Gong fans and a nice experiment in dabbling in a genre otherwise ignored or sneered at by prog musicians, and of course the partial reunion here eventually led to further Allen-fronted Gong projects down the line. But I wouldn't put it in the upper tiers of the expanded Gong discography.

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!
