avant-garde Free jazz EXPERIMENTAL prog and psychedelic rock from the 60s and 70s
Magick Brother - Daevid Allen / Gilli Smyth: Gong - 1969, BYG 529.305
Musicians - Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth, Didier Malherbe, Rachid Houri
Daevid is at the origin of one of the most fantastic French groups: Gong. On this album, his partner Gilli Smyth, singing and space whisper (spatial effects distorting her voice), sign all the titles, but listening reveals a strong influence coming from Daevid Allen's compositions.
Didier Malherbe is there as an accompanist but his influence will not stop growing in the sound of the group.
BYG tradition: two jazzmen, Narada Burton Greene and Barre Philips, will pass in the studios to join the group.
