The planet was, I realise, one of the spots before my eyes…
2024 is Gong's 54th year of giggling and performing in it's many forms and dis-guises.
Often referred to as a 'cult' band -
a band which too few people love too much - in the words of that great French pataphysician and all round musicbox, Bloomdido Bad De Grasse (to whom we defer on all things),
Zeee Gong eeeet egg-zisst all waysssss!
So much more than just the most eccentric originating psychedelic band of the late sixties and early seventies, the scions, satellites, offshoots, and iterations of Gong cover a range of styles, tastes, inclinations and altitudes, but always at the heart lies the original seed vision of the luminous green planet Gong.
