New York Gong / Daevid Allen - About Time About Time
Pop Used - LP CRL 5021 Charly
1980 Original With Custom Inner Sleeve. “Gong Gone Punk. About Time Documents Daevid Allen's 1979 New York Trip To Partake Of The Then-Happenin' CBGB's Scene. The New Sound Is An Odd Hybrid Of Psychedelia ("Preface"), New Wave ("I Am A Freud") And Punk ("Much Too Old"), With A Lyrical Sentiment Reminiscent Of Early-'70s Gong ("Jungle Window"). The LP Opens With An Effects-Laden Recording Of Allen Reciting His "Trippy" Poetry. Some Of The Compositions, Like "I Am A Freud," Bleed Quirky Rhythms And Melodies Resembling The Work Of The League Of Gentlemen And Talking Heads. "Materialism" And "Strong Woman" Feature Allen's Glissando Guitar, Which Seems A Forerunner To The Sound Fripp And Belew Employed On Their Early-'80s King Crimson Projects. "Materialism," Penned By Laswell, Is A Standout With Its Dominating Bass Driving Home The Groove. Another Highlight Is "Jungle Window," The Most Gong-Like Piece In The Set, Featuring Gary Windo's Jagged Sax And Laswell's Popping Bass. About Time Is A Solid Album Which Pleasantly Expands Allen's Repertoire.” David Ross Smith, All Music Guide.... more details
