4 stars Some tapes from 1985 have been discovered under Gilli Smyth's house. According to the Gong Appreciation Society, these tapes consisted of 'pure' drone which was largely layers of glissando guitar played on (and being glissando around) the chosen note. The B side was a more melodic affair with guest musicians invited to base a composition or improvisation on the drone. The concept of the B sides of those tapes has been the guide used by Microcosmique as he uses both old and new drone recordings by Daevid as the foundation on which to build these compositions. He has also called on the talents of among others Gilli Smyth and Harry Williamson, both of whom contributed to the original 7 Drone series of tapes. The result is very good, in the mind of the two recent Allen Microcosmic albums (Sacred geometry I and II), but maybe more eclectic. It's still cosmic psychedelic ambient with Gilli Smyth on vocals. It's really reminiscent of Gong's glorious years. Warmly recommended to all Pot-head-Pixies looking for a real Gong follower. The sound quality of this CD issue is good.
