Since we're talking about pears, then I would strongly recommend anybody into Gong getting a juicy one along with the fantastic Peel Sessions. To my knowledge the only release to feature Kevin Ayers on board. I just reviewed it, and had completely forgotten how good of a record it is.
And then together with a pear..... don't even get me started!

Yes we can. It's possible.
No, we can't, 'cause I don't like 'em!
 
Gong is good, but i prefer Magma. No psychedelic politician funk for me, thanks!

It's about time Prog Funk became a recognised subgenre.  There's already Jazz Rock and Funk Rock and Jazz Funk and Psychedelic Soul and so froth - time for Prog Funk, methinks.

I do like this poll.  All three pretty off the wall unique acts.

GonG get my vote of course.  But I L O V E Funkadelic .  I'm a late starter with Magma and I still have some listening to do so I'm not sure yet what I think>
Help me I'm falling!

Guess I'm too white for  Parliament/Funkadelic, Magma's moderate doses of funk suits me better. Gong's great, but not Magma-great.

My vote goes to the quirky Gong. Magma scares me sometimes. Stern Smile

I have loved all of them, but Magma. 

This is what turned me onto Magma originally, by the way.

Seems weird for Gong to be on this poll.

I choose Parliament/Funkadelic. Tear the roof off the sucka.
