Contributors include daevid allen and Thom the World Poet. A celebratory, roller-coaster ride through the many parts of alternative Australia.

If you want to get the feel of, and understand the alternative scene in Oz, then here is a great place to start. [NB: As this is quite a weighty book the postage may be more than the shopping cart shows, especially to overseas.]


Camembert Electrique

8 page card booklet, 30x14cm. Black on white reproduction of original white on blue inserts in the first BYG LP. Classic daevid allen artwork and typography.


Book of Chloroforms

daevid allen

Poetry of the Sleeping Life

40 page booklet of daevid's totally absorbing text-rich line drawings. Completed by daevid in 1966, not printed until found in the GAS archives in the late '80s. The first cover illustrated above is typical of what lies within. A little classic that rewards repeated readings and viewings. Fragments of future daevid and Gong lyrics and proto-pixies emerge from the mix of unique swirling alien line drawings. [cover colour may vary]

Free Mother Romania

Free Mother Romania

40 pages. Open Diaries of daevid's Transylvanian Adventures, July 1990.

When daevid decided spontaneously to travel to Romania in July 1990, all he knew about the country was from media coverage of the December '89 revolution - which fascinated him - and that there were many, many orphans needing help. He arrived in Bucharest with knowing no-one and with nowhere to stay, but found a warm, generous and stimulating people, eager to communicate on all levels - despite the invisible hand of fear and social repression still hovering over their shoulder. daevid's view of life in Romania has the unique and personal quality of a poet, political observer, traveller, humanist and friend. You'll love it. [cover colour may vary]

If Words Were Birds

daevid allen


28‑pages. Reprint of daevid's first volume of poetry, originally published in 1964. 21 choice early bits, including the first appearance of 'Captain Shaw and Mr Gilbert'. daevid initially gave copies to all his friends to illustrate, à la Sun Ra - the band illustrating their own LP sleeves. The copy we have used for this re-print has a drawing on the cover by Gilli's then young daughter Tasmin. [cover colour may vary]

deep background…

daevid's companion volume to Gong's album of the same name, first published in 1992. 56 page A5 illustrated lyric booklet. Enhance your Shapeshifter album with this specially written volume, or read on its own. [cover colour may vary]

The story of Zero the Hero continues… Forbidden the use of money, he enters a limbo-like state linked to constant travelling around the world, leaving it briefly at various destinations for further strange initiatory adventures.

Written and illustrated by daevid. Full of detail, an unmissable aid to the fuller and deeper understanding of Gong's 'Shapeshifter' album (not to mention the Alien brain).

As the Shapeshifter album is Radio Gnome Invisible Part 4, this book is a vital and highly entertaining key to understanding the link between the 'You' and 'Zero To Infinitea' albums.

Wot Happened to Walter

Wot Happened to Walter

14‑pages. 'Wot Happened to Walter When He Got into Scuttles with a Doggerel - A Bananabook for Helen & Walter, The Traveling Allens.' Reproduction cartoon booklet drawn by daevid in Deya in 1969 in preparation for a visit from his parents. [cover colour may vary]

daevid was slightly apprehensive about seeing his parents for the first time since he left Australia almost 10 years before. This funny fantasy cartoon on how the meeting might possibly turn out was his response. Needless to say many things had changed since he left Oz a fresh-faced, basically un-chemically experienced beatnik in 1959, added to which they were also meeting Gilli for the first time.
