Gong (real one, Daevid Allen Gong, not French,Russian or any other version) just released new studio album "I See You"(Snapper Records / Mad Fish SMACD1023)

Short samples are available on Planet Gong official site:


Gong Album launch Party Blimey real live happening gigs! 
[updated Fri 19 Sep]

Thursday 20th November - Manchester, Club Academy - Gong 2014 with special guests, Here & Now and Graham Clark and Mark Robson (The Magick Twins).

Friday 28th November - London, The Garage - Gong 2014 with special guest Steve Hillage, plus a trio of Mike Howlett, Steve Cassidy and Jerry Bewley, and an Andy Bole solo set.

All the details and ticket links

Dave Sturt, Ian East, Fabio Golfetti, Kavus Torabi and a mystery guest drummer, with the full blessings of our Absent Alien Aussie Allens - Orlando and daevid, are hosting two very special events with invited guests to launch the new Gong album, 'I See You'. Visual illumination from the one and only Jasper Johns in full-on Flute Salad Lightshow mode at both events.

Just when all was a deep glooming gig-wise as the planned Gong dates UK and European dates spluttered, flickered and went out one by one like light-bulbs blowing on an overloaded Christmas Tree circuit - there is a light that won't go out - and it's called Gong and now have two unique events to look forward to in November.

Come and fan the flames, a grand musical adventure awaits, this could be quite someting - and not a big white pixie suit in sight, unless you plan on dressing up. In fact we could all go as Bert Camembert - I'm Bert Camemberticus, No I'm Bert Camemberticus, No I'm...etc... in homage to daevid, who by the time of the gigs should be well down recouperation road after his radiation therapy.

New Gong album is really good if controversial one. If you liked Daevid Allen's Gong of early 70s and his music in general, and at the same time are ready to accept their original vision transformed to 2014,than I expect you will really like this release. If you hated them or if you think that real Gong is "Espresso" or "Gazeus" - this album will hardly change your minds. If you never heard who the Gong is (what most probably means you're at least twice younger than me) there's a chance you will start here and will dig deeper to their massive legacy - if you like that old-fashioned hippie-psycho jazzy rock.For myself,I was really impressed how genuine and at the same time modern David Allen sounds close to the end of his long-lasting musical career. He didn't live in memories or nostalgia, but at the same time he didn't change his mind at all - he's a 1968's Paris veteran with eyes of a child, the combination virtually impossible in second decade of second Millenium.
