You are crazy AgiWacko

I cannot for the life of me choose between any of these. Gong and Magma are among my absolute favourite progressive acts - and Parliament/Funkadelic were one of my early musical loves. 
No vote.

I expected apples and oranges, but got pears too.  No telling what will happen in the poll section here.

Seems weird for Gong to be on this poll.

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

I have loved all of them, but Magma. 

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

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

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

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!
