1980 radio Q and A session recorded by Jeff Wootton. Recorded in a discarded bean tin beside a busy airport runway, on a hot summer day in a city famed for having its river repeatedly catch fire, daevid goes on about gamelan, history, drugs, ritual, comparative religion, mysticism, cult super-stardom, Charlie Records, what he is and isn't doing, with and to whom, where and why.

artwork Gong
Flying Teapot Spotters Scroll
Convolutingly drawn by daevid allen in 1973 - who else could do it? Full of pixies, teapots and characters from the Planet Gong, and a space to come clean with your name - Yes I have seen a Flying Teapot! Help! Did you colour yours in? Could you colour yours in? Did you wish you hadn't half way through? Never mind - you can have loads of goes now.
Back in the day a wee line inside the gate-fold of the Flying Teapot LP offered this prime slice of forgetabilia 'free' if you wrote nicely to Virgin Records. Ah but what is free? Someone paid for all those eagerly awaited copies and the postage to send them out. And as we all realise now, where the record companies hold the purse strings and 'organise' the accounts those 'sombodies' always are of a musical bent.
