Yes! YES! YESSS!!!
Of course, as they've mentioned, Gong without Daevid Allen (aka Divided Alien) is a lot different, but from that Soundcloud track that they provided, the overall feel and vibe of the Radio Gnome era is still there.
Daevid was a great, kind human being, I'm sure. I've read a lot about him and I'm pretty positive on that one. He would not have anything against others using the label "Gong" to continue what he has started. He was always about progress. He would be proud, once again, I'm sure. He is missed, but we will all eventually see him on planet Gong.
Thanks for the article, Jean! Wink

well, two tracks are with Daevid Allen, hence the tile "Rejoice, I'm Dead"

Yeah, that's nice, but it's a fraction considering it's on two LPs. Anyway, thanks so much for the article once again!

Cool.

I'll listen.

Very kool. Its good that they continue to make music instead of stopping because someone has died.

Good to hear.
I'm glad they are continuing on especially since their last album was fantastic.
