Gong I See You vinyl Daevid Allen
2019 double 140g vinyl edition of the 2014 studio release from the enduring legend that is Gong.
 
'I See You is the equal of anything since 1974’s You.’ - Classic Rock
 
The last album released prior to the passing of founder Daevid Allen.
 
---------
 
The enduring legend that is Gong – multi-National, multi-dimensional Psychedelic combo – entered yet another new phase on its four-decades-plus journey with I See You, originally released on Madfish in November 2014 and now reissued on sister label Kscope. I See You was the last album they released before vocalist/lyricist Daevid Allen sadly passed away, and on this album he radiated incandescent creativity, the original anarchic vibe that was born out of the counter-culture revolution in the Paris Commune in 1968.
 
His co-conspirators on I See You comprised Orlando Allen on drums, new guitarist and current frontman 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 weaved his own lysergic patterns on guitar. This collective created an impressive, multi-layered and irrepressible sound that created its own world and then populated it with a series of dazzling musical gems, melodically-rich, lyrically engaging and musically refreshed.
