Il concerto che si tenne al Real Music Club di Brighton (Regno Unito) lo scorso 8 febbraio doveva servire nelle intenzioni degli organizzatori a raccogliere fondi per il proseguimento delle cure ospedaliere di Daevid Allen, ma alla notizia che il Nostro aveva infine deciso di affrontare in piedi la fase terminale del suo male esso si trasformò in festoso appuntamento in suo onore, per celebrarne lo spirito, la musica e la poesia. Oggi è un documento audio dal titolo Drones for Daevid Gig - The RMC Brighton February 8 2015promosso in formato fisico e digitale tramite Bandcamp; i proventi delle vendite andranno tutti al Daevid Allen Foundation Trust. Ci sono You Can't Kill Me e We Did It Again, Non God Will Not Go On e Blame the Rich e molto altro, con la Glissando Guitar Orchestra, l'Invisible Opera Company of Tibet, Shankara Andy Bole, Monty Oxymoron, Mark Robson orfano dell'illustre 'Fratello Magico' e l'apparizione quasi a sorpresa di Arthur Brown, con una dedica poetica ad Allen divenuta subito celebre sul web.

The Drones4daevid gig was organised by the Real Music Club as a benefit gig for Daevid Allen, to help with his medical recuperation costs after he had been treated for cancer. Very sadly, a week before the gig, Daevid announced that the cancer had returned, and that he was going to decline further evasive treatment, and bow out with dignity. The gig became a celebration of Daevid's life and works, and a big big thank you to Daevid with fans and performers travelling far and wide to be at this gig. The Real Music Club would like to thank all the performers, artists, the venue and especially the audience who made this gig such a loving celebration. All the performances were played with such passion and warmth for Daevid. All proceeds from sales of this CD will go to the Daevid Allen Foundation Trust.
