More information: The enduring legend that is Gong - multi-National, multi-dimensional Psychedelic combo - enters yet another new phase on their four-decades plus journey with I See You, released in a media book format with a 28 page booklet featuring lyrics and track notes from Daevid Allen.

The current incarnation of Gong comprises vocalist / lyricist Daevid Allen, who, even at the age of seventy-five, still radiates an incandescent creativity, the original anarchic vibe that was born out of counter-culture revolution in the Paris commune in 1968. His co-conspirators on I See You comprise Orlando Allen on drums, new guitarist Kavus Torabi (formerly of The Cardiacs) and the latest guitar incumbent in a band whose ranks have included the likes of Steve Hillage and Mark Hewins, horn player Ian East 'Wind', sinuous bass propulsion provided by Dave Sturt (the sonic manipulator), and Brazilian Fabio Golfetti who weaves his own lysergic patterns on guitar. This collective create an impressive, multi-layered and irrepressible sound that creates its own world and then populates it with a series of dazzling musical gems, melodically-rich, lyrically engaging and musically refreshed.
