Jonny on the Spot...?

If you are waiting for an order, an e-mail about an order, or any other form of response or communication (except via Radio Gnome Invisible of course) - deep apologies. Due to his on-going committments as Gong Tour Manager, Jonny has struggled to provide the usual consistent quick mail-order service...

You win a few, you lose a few - things will be back to abnormal almost before you know it. Too soon, too soon...

GIGS and Events - UP and Coming
Other gigs online - Didier Malherbe and the Hadouk Trio in France, Tim Blake with Hawkwind in the UK... whatever we know, whenever we know it.
