I went to a Whirl-Y-Gig some time in '98 I think, where I saw Gong without even being remotely aware of their existence, tripping. When they played their spacey stuff I was instantly converted. There was some goa/psytrance before them, which was really good, but I can't remember much - it's been a while. The UK is amazing at organising such events. Even non-music festies like the Strawberry Fair, which I went to twice in a row, are fantastic.
I miss those days. And London.
ah Gong. Yes. One of my favourites and in 2000 they were really cooking with Zero to Infinity album. At that time they had a GREAT live band and they concentrated more on the spacey funk / jazz side of their style.
Late nineties were a really good time for music in the UK. Trance music was just developing and a lot of those were from the psychedelic scene. Eat Static, Ozrics and Banco de Gaia even got in the charts for a short period.
