The revised release date for the new Gong studio album, ‘I See You’ is now Monday 10th November.

Everything is now in the hands of the record label – daevid’s artwork, all the credits, lyrics, notes and writings, plus a host of photographs both live shots and from a photoshoot in Brazil, and of course the LP and CD audio masters. Snapper’s artwork team have all the elements to design an appealing and edifying package, one that will illuminate and enhance some great Gong music – I’m sure they’ll do just that.

All the details and ticket links

Dave Sturt, Ian East, Fabio Golfetti, Kavus Torabi and a mystery guest drummer, with the full blessings of our Absent Alien Aussie Allens – Orlando and daevid, are hosting two very special events with invited guests to launch the new Gong album, ‘I See You’. Visual illumination from the one and only Jasper Johns in full-on Flute Salad Lightshow mode at both events.

Just when all was a deep glooming gig-wise as the planned Gong dates UK and European dates spluttered, flickered and went out one by one like light-bulbs blowing on an overloaded Christmas Tree circuit – there is a light that won’t go out – and it’s called Gong and now have two unique events to look forward to in November.

Come and fan the flames, a grand musical adventure awaits, this could be quite someting – and not a big white pixie suit in sight, unless you plan on dressing up. In fact we could all go as Bert Camembert – I’m Bert Camemberticus, No I’m Bert Camemberticus, No I’m…etc… in homage to daevid, who by the time of the gigs should be well down recouperation road after his radiation therapy.
