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.
All you get is this pear

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 despise modern music. Words cannot express how much it gets on my nerves – the false, pretentious, smug assertiveness of it.

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>

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.

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

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!
