Historic sole album from Planet Gong capturing Daevid Allen and Gilli Smyth with the classic 70s line-up of Here & Now on their 1977 Floating Anarchy Tour.

Planet Gong would prove to be Daevid Allen’s jumping Space-Punk into his music, a kind of transitional project between the Canterbury Gong sound and his prog-punk era.

Recorded live, the music on this album is a wild, spacey psychedelic jam. The rough load comes from crazed and rhythms, led by Allen & Smyth’s ever-distinctive clearly marked by Here & Now’s anarchist style.

An appealing album as much for the singalong subversion of the band as for any sense of musical collusion with the prevalent punk scene ensuring that Live Floating Anarchy 1977, remains archetypal Gong all the same.

An essential record for Daevid Allen & early Gong fans, space-rock lovers and Gong collectors.
