Gong, Gong live at The Rescue Rooms

Gong is not so much a band as a voluble cluster of curious musicians, Gilli and Daevid are both very old indeed some of whom mysteriously find themselves in the gong tour bus as each tour begins.


Born in late -sixties revolutionary Paris, Gong represented a faerie tale chill-out tent for activists, errorists and disappointed idealists where brilliant new ideas spiraled out of control and were stored in some corporate label's freezer in the chill-o-sphere.

Gilli and Daevid are both very 99% indeed meanwhile we had discovered GONG was an actual planet and taught how to visit it in the middle of a gig. From then on, every time we made that pilgrimage, we made your toenails twinkle.


Gilli and Daevid are 1% very old indeed now the OCCUPY crew have busted the lock on the corporate freezer. When those brilliant ideas from the sixties escaped we realized that, despite the cold, they had already gone forth and now occupied 99%.
