4 stars Gongzilla is a spin off of Gong. We're talking the Pierre Moerlin version rather than the Daevid Allen version. While I like both versions of Gong, Pierre's is still my preferred as it was my introduction to Gong.

What you get is music in the style of Pierre Moerlen's Gong with a harder edge to it. The core of the band is three musicians who played in that lineup before Daevid took back the reins of Gong: Bon Lozaga, Hansford Rowe, and Benoit Moerlen (Pierre's brother). Pierre is no longer with us, unfortunately, but Gongzilla is working on a new studio album. I'm guessing the guitarist here who sounds an awful lot like Allan Holdsworth is David Fiuzynski, but maybe it's Bon or both. (Holdsworth and David Torn have also guested on Gongzilla studio albums.) I really envy the folks who saw this show in Quebec City back in 1998. Hope they'll come around to my area sometime soon. Judging from this CD these guys are not to be missed live, if you get the opportunity.
