We love Gongs! So of course we love the band GONG!
The band known as GONG was a Franco-British prog rock band. Started by Australian musician, Daevid Allen, in 1967, the band's focus was to create psychedelic music. He chose musicians well-versed in both music and psychedelics and the rest is history, fantasy, and even mystery!
Their debut album, Magick Brother, was firmly rooted in the psychedelic genre of the time. The sound of the band began to change throughout their next albums, ranging from psychedelic pop to avant garde progressive rock . Their well-known third, fourth, and fifth albums were released as a trilogy: The Radio Gnome Invisible, featuring the adventures of Zero the Hero, the Good Witch Yoni and the Pot Head Pixies from the Planet Gong (green pixies with propellers on their heads who fly around in teapots, of course!).
In 1976 Daevid Allen left the band, and it went in different directions, but he returned in 1991 to lead GONG and created four more albums.
