Gong - Live. Floating Anarchy 1977 (cd ripped. format wma). 1977

        A psychedelic space trip!

Gong came together in the late '60's by the Australian guitarist David Allen. The band created a mythology of the peaceful Planet Gong populated by Radio Gnomes, Pothead Pixies, and Octave Doctors.

Rolling Stone magazine described Gong's music as combining "psychedelic English whimsy, German kosmische space jams and Gallic libertine fusion".

"A psychedelic album with a black and white cover. It is crudely hand drawn as well. It exhibits more punk flavour than flower power.
But then again, that is what Planet Gong was kind of about. They were not really the hip psychedelic flower-power band. They were very much free-form craziness.
The music here shows it.


It flows freely and weirdly. Crescendos of power chords and mysterious noodling all combine to make I a serious tour de force. The musical mayhem is accompanied by fairly strong, uncompromising anarchistic rhetoric, which at times sounds like a bit of a put on . . . but then you realise that they are quite genuine in their beliefs."
