doubt there's a thread on them. anyone who listens to them will have their mind blown in half. i only have the radio gnome trilogy and gazeuse! but they are all freakin amazing. anyone else listen to them?

A Sprinkling of Clouds is completely and utterly out of this world.

gong are great, not much of a fan of later jazz fusion-y gong, but i love early gong. I saw Daevid Allen live last year, the had just turned 70 at the time, but had more energy than a teenager.

yeah I definitely like the jazzier stuff less, but still like it a hell of a lot.

so i just read that steve hillage and other old members are gonna do some shows in england in november. i wish i lived there. that'd be amazing.

so does anyone know of steve hillage? he's done some awesome solo stuff...don't actually own any of it (because I can't find it) but I think i'm gonna get Fish Rising and Green from amazon soon.

"You" wouldn't be a bad place to start. probably their best one

what about "Shamal"? i recently saw this for like 10 bucks in a local record store, what kind of music does it fall under....rock/fusion?

I'm not sure...i haven't heard that one. it's got steve hillage though so I'd assume it's kick ass haha
