A group for fans of the 'space/psych' band, Gong, to discuss Gong and Gong related things.


Gong is a progressive/psychedelic rock band formed by Australian musician Daevid Allen. Their music has also been described as space rock. Other notable band members include Allan Holdsworth, Tim Blake, Didier Malherbe, Pip Pyle, Gilli Smyth, Steve Hillage, Mike Howlett and Pierre Moerlen. Others who have, albeit briefly, played in Gong are Bill Bruford, Brian Davison and Chris Cutler. The various incarnations of Gong, its spin-offs and related bands are collectively dubbed the "Gong Global Family".

They were formed in 1967, after Allen - then a member of Soft Machine - was denied entry to the United Kingdom due to a visa complication. Allen remained in France where he and a London-born Sorbonne professor, Gilli Smyth, established the first incarnation of Gong.

    Пока вращается вечное колесо, мы продолжим нести вокруг твоё послание любви… Спи спокойно, вибрация Гонга всегда будет звучать, расти и усиливаться. Ты оставил прекрасное наследие, оно будет сиять в наших детях и их детях. Сейчас - самое счастливое время твоей жизни, будь благословен!

    hi all, started listening in the 70s and have a tune in my head since then, it goes like this. it starts in a street with traffic on the roads and then a man whistles a tune, a road drill can be heard from the workman, then the tune is slowly overlaid until it becomes a full track has anybody got any ideas, a friend said it was a gong track but i have not come across it

    I find the idea that Gong fans listen to more Pink Floyd rather challenging. I feel similarly about Van der Graaf being listed as a similar artist. Also a great band but similar? How? Love is how you make it I guess. Good, got that off my chest!-)
