Gong

Rejoice I'm Dead


Post Daevid Allen Gong have entered yet another new phase on their four-decades plus journey with 'Rejoice! I'm Dead!, their brand new studio album. This is the follow up to 2014's 'I See You' the last album Daevid Allen was to record with Gong. Some say it couldn't, or shouldn't, be done. How could Gong exist without Daevid Allen? A few minutes into listening to their brand new album aspersions will be cast aside. New members and old coalesce. This is undeniably Gong. 'Rejoice! I'm Dead!' is classified as the band's 28th album and the Gong legacy is the strongest it has been since 1974. Every member was key in the development of each new song - Kavus Torabi (vocals/guitar) formerly of The Cardiacs who joined Gong in 2014 in time for the last album unaware of the direction his new gig as a guitar player would take, Fabio Golfetti (guitar/vocals), Dave Sturt (bass/vocals), Ian East (sax/flute) and Cheb Nettles (Drum) take on the mantle of steering the Teapot further into outer space and the inner ear. The voice of Daevid Allen features on 2 songs ? "Model Village" and "Beatrix" and the album also features guests - Steve Hillage adding a guitar line on "Rejoice!" and Didier Malherbe's duduk can be heard on "Model Village" and "Through Restless Seas I Come".
