Gong - You (1974)

Hace ya una o dos semanas se fue del mundo Daevid Allen, el lider de esta gran banda de rock psicodélico y progresivo llamada Gong. Con 77 años a cuestas y un cáncer terminal, Allen escribió una carta para todos sus seguidores seis meses antes de su partida.

Hello you Kookaburras,

OK so I have had my PET-CAT scans (which is essentially a full body viewing gallery for cancer specialists, ) and so it is now confirmed that the invading cancer has returned to successfully establish dominant residency in my neck.

The original surgery took much of it out, but the cancer has now recreated itself with renewed vigour while also spreading to my lung.

The cancer is now so well established that I have now been given approximately six months to live.

So My view has Changed:

I am not interested in endless surgical operations and in fact it has come as a relief to know that the end is in sight.

I am a great believer in "The Will of the Way Things Are" and I also believe that the time has come to stop resisting and denying and to surrender to the way it is.

I can only hope that during this journey, I have somehow contributed to the happiness in the lives of a few other fellow humans.

I believe I have done my best to heal, dear friends and that you have been enormously helpful in supporting me through this time.

So Thank you SO much for being there with me, for the Ocean of Love and Now, importantly, Thank you for starting the process of letting go of me, of mourning then transforming and celebrating this death coming up – this is how you can contribute, this would be a great gift from those emotionally and spiritually involved with me.

I love you and will be with you always 

- Daevid xxx -

You es un excelente disco de la banda. Es la tercera parte de lo que se llama la Radio Gnome Trilogy, que vendría a ser una temática hilarante que se explotó en los discos anteriores, con pasajes bastante graciosos. Los dos discos anteriores de esta mitología son Angel's Egg, y Flying Teapot.

Sin embargo, el disco consta con largos pasajes instrumentales, y no se lo escucha tanto a Allen gritando cosas incoherentes. Se le da mucha bola a los teclados, creando una atmósfera medio space rock con gritos tribales que quedan muy bien en temas como Master Builder.

Master Builder

De todas formas, Allen se hace de espacio para meter sus bizarreadas en el medio de los temas como en APHP Advice o Perfect Mistery
