Gong - Magick Brother CD/LP
Having been part of the fabled Canterbury scene, along with luminaries such as Robert Wyatt and Pip Pyle, the irrepressible Australian guitarist-vocalist-songwriter Daevid Allen formed Gong with Welsh vocalist Gilli Smyth in Paris at the end of the '60s, as France was in state of ferment.
"Magick Brother" introduced Gong as one of the great oddities of the psychedelic and space rock age. The nucleus of Allen, Smyth and Malherbe was able to create a musical vocabulary very much of its own all the while searching for essential metaphysical truths.
"The band made strong political statements that comes through loud and clear on this re-mastered version of Gong's debut album..." Kevin Le Gendre, 2022
