3 stars Gong here made a live album with some very twisted cosmic & spacy sounds and effects plus some punk riffs and beat. The sound is awful, although the compositions are pretty complex and progressive: one could believe the record has been recorded live in a "Woodstock" event for the punk community. Well, if it can be classified as punk, then it is progressive punk with cosmic & spacy elements. The record contains no saxes, no percussions, no flute. The sexual voice of Gilli Smith, the cosmic VCS3-like arrangements and the electric guitar of Steve Hillage will remind you that it is still Gong who are concerned here. Obviously, the best passages are the most mellow and floating ones. The overall music still sounds like Ozric Tentacles and Steve Hillage's solo career, but it is less similar to the previous Gong, given that many regular musicians are absent here. The music is definitely very good, but the poor sound leads to a 0.5 star removal.

Rating: 3.5 stars

3 stars 3.5 stars really!!!

I was never sure where this album ever stood in the Gong history, but I always perceived it as the first step of Daevid Allen to reclaim his Planet Gong property, since this album was released in 77 within weeks or months of the Live Etc (but recorded in 73) and the album Expresso II would be the last one named that way before Moerlen's gang would use Pierre Moerlen's Gong. So most likely, Daevid achieved his goal and probably partly due to this album. Outside his beloved Gilly, there is no-one else from the Gong history, and this album is the link between Here And Now and the Planet. But if the album does not really touch Gong mythology, it sure as hell relates, refers, cites, quotes and breathes, eat & sleeps to it as much as it can. As the title indicates, the album is live and recorded on one night and the artwork suggest stealing the album instead of paying more than their announced price. Truth must be told that Daevid was robbed many times of his rights by unscrupulous labels and managers.

There is a big difference, though between this album and the GonG galaxy. Here, this album could almost be classified as punk, if it was not for the sheer virtuoso qualities of Sharpstring and Keith Da Missile and Co. Indeed, the group is over exuberant and their energy not always "englishly contained" and the punk sometimes seeps through the pores of the songs. But unmistakably Gilly's intros bring us back to the RGI, even plunging a bit into You for a minute or two. To this Gonghead, the flipside is certainly more interesting with two full-blown psyched-out but tight jams. Drummer Kifkif (so-so in French) and Keith (bassist) indeed make an incredible bed so the rest of the group can sail on view and float at will. The almost binary rhythms can indeed bring you to Hawkwind's better moments as well.

But obviously the "Anarchy" deal is not to let ugly Pistols pull the blanket to them, and Daevid and the GanG (I just had to do that one ;o)) pull it ridiculously easily to their advantage. Sure, this album is a bit of "bastard son" of the GonG oeuvre, but it has no problem making recognized its parenthood either.

4 stars Don be fooled by the name: it is not Anarchy in UK for sure. It's not a Moerlen's Gong as well. It's Planet Gong : Daevid Allen transitional project between Canterbury Gong sound and his prog-punk era.

The music is dready and heavy space-psychedelic. No percussions, no saxes - no jazzy elements came here from Canterbury/jazz fusion Gong. But overload is coming from synthesizers, Gilli Smyth perfectly recogniseable voice and Daevid singing. Steve Hillage supply some guitars as well. But all this acid construction is build on freshly coming punk basement.

No way real punk ( punks hated synthesizers,long compositions, dreamy spacy sound,etc), but for sure uses some fashionable rhythms and sounds.

One of most psychedelic Allen album at all, what is a bit strange,speaking about date of release. Strange, but partially interesting album.

Should be interesting for Daevid Allen fans,early Gong fans, dready space rock lovers and Gong collectors. For Allen real prog punk better listen New York Gong.Between three and four, but because of my love to all Gong world,let it be 4.

4 stars Not to be missed if you like any of the incarnations of Gong featuring Daevid Allen.

Not only does LIVE FLOATING ANARCHY contain loads of wild and bubbly space-rock, most notably the majestic fifteen-minute "Allez Ali Baba Black Sheep" which still carries me away every time I hear it (and which must have been a major influence on Ozric Tentacles); it also contains Daevid's triumphant attempt to outsnarl Johnny Rotten on a thoroughly enjoyable Sex Pistols parody called "Opium for the People". (Just why did you think the album was called "Live Floating ANARCHY"? It seems Allen was more than prepared to show those young upstarts who the true anarchists were!)

I can't imagine that anyone who likes BANANAMOON, CAMEMBERT ELECTRIQUE or even YOU would fail to appreciate this album. Just don't expect subtle soloing as provided by the likes of Pierre Moerlen or Didier Malherbe. What you get here is wild and spontaneous, but still rich, thanks to (among other things) esctatic drumming, oodles of whizzing synths and yes: that dratted space whisper!

N.B. Contrary to what certain reviewers have stated, Steve Hillage did not take part in this concert, as far as I'm aware. But professor Sharpstrings, whoever he is (I always suspected him of being Daevid Allen himself, but I must be wrong), does an excellent job at reminding you of the master.

PROG REVIEWER
3 stars If Gong is a mix of Canterbury and space at all as is mentioned in the band description then on this live album the space prevails very obviously. And second style isn't Canterbury here but more the punk style the band played at this particular moment in their career, a bit like a mix of Hawkwind or Ozric Tentacles combined with some Sex Pistols I would say.

Maybe it doesn't have to be a big deal actually because what it really is at this moment in time is pretty interesting prog anyway: challenging and versatile it is for sure. Mainly the two longer, epical tracks really appeal to me. New Age Transformation and Allez Ali Baba ... are best digested with a nice joint between your lips. Ok, just kidding here but this is spacy stuff in just about the weirdest way you can think of. It's quite funny actually to listen to these two songs but what's most important is that it's very entertaining music, at least far from dull anyway.

The shorter songs at the beginning and in between the two epics of this live release are more in the mentioned punk style making the whole thing pretty diverse and all in all an enjoyable listening experience. It just goes a little bit too far for me to call it an excellent addition for any prog rock collection but it's not really far from it to be honest, so close to a 3,5 star rating I would say. In the end I will round down because the vocals are a bit over the top where bizarness is concerned so it has some flaws but if you get intrigued reading this review I can certainly recommend to check it out.

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Gilli Smyth and Daevid Allen teamed up with the band who would become Here and Now to put out this album, which matches up some old Allen pieces from the likes of Camembert Electrique and Bananamoon with new pieces making their first appearance here. Here and Now play in a psychedelic style which would put them in good stead on the festival circuit which in a few years would spawn the likes of Ozric Tentacles, and indeed the overall impression is a lot like "Allen and Smyth meet the Ozrics". G-avin Da Blitz' keyboard skills are easily on a par with Tim Blake's, whilst the mysterious "Professor Sharpstrings" has a guitar style that is more aggressive and direct than Steve Hillage, but no less psychedelic - it's rather reminiscent of Hendrix in fact.

The new energy and directness brought to the table by Here and Now adds a new dimension to the usual Gong tomfoolery, and whilst it is expressed best (as usual for Gong) in the extended ten minute plus compositions, the shorter pieces also benefit from this added hippy- punk vibrancy. A short-lived subfaction of the Gong family, but arguably an important one, Planet Gong would prove to be Daevid Allen's jumping off point to incorporate the sounds of the New Wave into his music, which arguably came to a culmination in the startlingly different New York Gong album.
