4 stars This record is the soundtrack of a film by Jerome Lapperousaz, "Continental Circus". This beautiful film about GP motor bike races in Europe is centered around biker Jack Findlay. It shows races of course, dramatic accidents, funny incidents, but above all life on the road for these passionate and very courageous men ! It stresses the opposition between lucky "factory" pilots and independent bikers who have a hard time finding money to be present in GP races. Gong's music is absolutely perfect for the film and wonderfully plays its role. Listening to it without having the images in mind can be frustrating. Strangely, Daevid Allen's voice sounds rather like Robert Wyatt's ... Thirty years later, hearing Gong's work still strongly evokes the film images, which IMHO shows it was rather good for its purpose !
