Gong came into being almost by accident in the late sixties when Daevid Allen was refused entry back into Britain following European dates with Soft Machine. Deciding to stay in Paris, Allen began working alongside Gilli Smyth and various musicians in what would eventually be known as Gong. The first recognized recordings from the band were Magick Brother, Mystic Sister in 1970, followed by albums such as 'Camembert Electrique', 'Flying Teapot', 'Angels Egg', and 'You'. These last three albums followed the fortunes of 'Zero The Hero' and told the tale of pothead pixies in what became the 'Radio Gnome Invisible' Trilogy. Shortly after the release of 'You' in 1974, Daevid Allen and Gilli Smyth left the band and Steve Hillage became the de facto leader, although he left in 1975 for a solo career. The band did continue in a more jazz oriented direction, which was far removed from the original musical output of the band. The material on the DVD features two distinct periods of the bands history with the earliest footage coming from an in the studio performance filmed in 1971 for French television. This is a rare outing and a rare line up of the band featuring Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth, Didier Malherbe, Christian Tritsch and Laurie Allen. The DVD also includes further footage from 1972 and 1973. In fact there is good news for fans of the "Angels Egg" period, as there is more than twenty minutes of footage featured on this DVD. None of this rare footage has ever been made available commercially before now, making this release a real treat for fans of Gong
