Formed in 1969 by Daevid Allen, one of the founder members of Soft Machine, Gong established itself as one of the most unique, innovative, and experimental rock groups of the 70s.

I have a distinct feeling that Daevid Allen is one of the few true geniuses that have been thrown up by the rock media... a Dylan Thomas of another age” Steve Turner, 1971

Absurd, anarchic, and powerfully psychedelic, Camembert Electrique is the second album by Gong. Originally released in France on BYG/Actuel in 1971, then licensed to a young Richard Branson for his fledgling Virgin label in the UK in 1974, this iconic and influential recording is still devastatingly fresh sounding in the 21st century. Weirdness, wisdom, outré rock of the ‘highest’ order - as you’d expect from the founding-father of acid-rock Daevid Allen.

“This is a classic... Camembert Electrique remains undated.” All Music Guide
