Products by Gong can be found in the following genres:
Gong came into being almost by accident in the late sixties when Daevid Allen was refused entry back into Britain following European dates with Soft Machine. Deciding to stay in Paris, Daevid began working alongside Gilli Smyth and various musicians on what would eventually be recognised as Gong.
The first acknowledged recordings from the band were ‘Magick Brother - Mystic Sister’ in 1970 then came the albums ‘Camembert Electrique’, ‘Flying Teapot’, ‘Angels Egg’ and ‘You’. The latter three followed the fortunes of Zero The Hero and told the tale of the Pothead Pixies and became the Radio Gnome Invisible Trilogy.
Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth and Steve Hillage have all recorded as solo artists and Gilli subsequently formed the offshoot Mother Gong. Occasionally the three have reunited as was seen by the release of the live Gong album recorded in 1977. A subsequent reunion at the Gong UnCon in 2006 became a full time proposition with the release of a new studio album in 2009
Various permutations of Gong have worked together over the years under various names including Mother Gong, Expresso Gong, Gongmaison and Planet Gong . These included an amazing array of musical talent moving through the ranks of the band over the last forty years.
