5 stars Oh Man this is great music.

Have I said already that this is great music.

The first album in the radio Gnome trilogie, tells the tale of the Pot-Head Pixies who fly about in their flying teapot, radiating Radio Gnome waves into the ether, probably to enslave the listening audience to their humouresque observations, and fabulous rhythmic exploration of their musical universe.

Gong is a mixture of Canterbury style soft rock, with space progressive influences, intricate drumming, space-rock Guitars, delicate synthesisers, hypnothising bass and funny lyrics, sung in a very great fashion, alternating male and female vocals. The origin of the band is French, but they took influences from all kinds of sources, including English style rock, arabian sounds, and more.

The best songs on the album are Witch's Song, a very sexy song, with Gilli Smyth explaining she would like to scratch you, and yes she may scratch me. Also Zero The Hero is great, with a jazzy saxophone lead, another one is of course The Pot Head Pixies, but really all songs are of high quality, and really fun to listen to, a five star masterpiece for sure, as are the two follow up's.

If you haven't heard this album yet, may I please be so bold to tell you, YOU ARE MISSING OUT.

PEACE OUT
