11 ottobre 2012

Prende il via oggi un lungo giro di concerti che vedrà impegnato fino a tutto novembre Daevid Allen con una nuova formazione dei Gong: con lui Gilli Smyth, il figlio Orlando Allen (batteria), Fabio Golfetti (chitarre), Dave Sturt (basso elettrico), Ian East (sassofoni e flauto). Date principali in Francia e Regno Unito, con qualche puntata anche in Olanda, Germania e Giappone. Video in http://users.swing.be/daevidallen/promov.html

Accomplished drummer/producer Orlando is of course Gilli and daevid's younger son. They have for years been keen to include him as member of Gong and see now as THE time. Fabio Golfetti, leading light of the Invisible Opera Company of Tibet (Brazil), is a very polished guitarist in smooth Gilmouresque prog mode and of course a glissando guitar practitioner of long standing. And many of you will have experienced the entertaining, expert musicianship of Ian East and Dave Sturt on respectively, wind instruments and bass, on the 2009-10 Gong tours and know that those chairs within the band are in more than capable hand...
