[News] Gong “Live At The Gong Family Unconventional Gathering” 15th anniversary DVD and CD

The Gong Family Unconvention at the Melkweg Club in Amsterdam in November 2006 was a unique 3-day event in which all the surviving original members of this legendary band came together and, after performing their own individual sets, performed once again as Gong. This climactic and joyful 2hr 16min Gong live set was beautifully captured for this DVD video and for the first time CD audio recording! This was the last time that Gong played with the full “classic” line-up (minus just Pierre Moerlen on drums, who died the year before).

The line-up for this unique and special performance:

Daevid Allen / Guitar, Voice
Gilli Smyth / Voice, Space Whisper
Steve Hillage / Guitar
Didier Malherbe / Flute, Soprano Sax, Duduk
Theo Travis / Tenor Sax
Tim Blake / Synthesiser, Voice
Miquette Giraudy / Synthesiser
Mike Howlett / Bass
Chris Taylor / Drums
