  1. Thank you! I have tried over many years to collect everything by Gong and Planet Gong and Steve Hillage Band. The tracks you chose are pretty much my favourites and the most spacey. Great selection. If you are new to Gong and you want more go for 'You', 'Live etc', 'Angel's Egg' and 'Gong Est Mort'. Like Hawkwind there are dozens to listen to and plenty of 'collections', 'best of's, 'previously unreleased' and bootlegs out there. Enjoy.

  2. I know what you mean Earthless. The spacier stuff has stayed with me. The weirder stuff was fine in my twenties when partaking of certain enhancing substances. I didn't care too much back then, just loved drifting away to Gong, Hawkwind (of course) and the Pink Fairies (Uncle Harry's Last Freakout in particular).

  3. i agree with everyone here,that there spacey stuff is much better than the rather strange and eclectic matl. they released ,nice selection,thanx

  4. If you're going outta space with Gong then might as well take early Here & Now along for the ride? Rivington Pike Live album and Gospel of Free Live has some extended freakout jams. Daevid Allen (Gong) hooked up with these guys to form Planet Gong (already on this site somewhere) and many live gigs had H&N on first and PG on after. Wish I had seen some of those! Checkout extended live jam, 'Ali Baba Black Sheep'.

  5. My gift to say thanks for all the newer bands you introduced me to:
    Here & Now – probably the trippiest of the UK’s jam bands in the mid 1970’s. They were known for jamming (free improvisation), which they did exclusively. They believed in the purity of creating music ‘in the moment’. During this period few ever paid to see or hear them either, as they would only play their music at free shows and free festivals (notes from Wikipedia).

  11. hey there and thank you for your info – I’ve definitely picked up something new from right here.
    I did however expertise a few technical issues using this site, since I experienced to reload the website lots of times previous to
    I could get it to load properly. I had been wondering if your
    web hosting is OK? Not that I am complaining, but sluggish loading instances times will
    sometimes affect your placement in google and can damage
    your high quality score if ads and marketing with Adwords.
    Well I am adding this RSS to my email and could

  12. Wonderful work! This is the kind of information that are meant to be shared across

    publish higher! Come on over and seek advice from my site .
    Thank you =)

  13. What does the writer gain? What did Paul gain or the Corinthian church gain by putting out the man who had an incestuous relationship? What did the church where Timothy was an elder gain by bringing a charge against an elder in the presence of 2 or 3 witnesses? TPM doesnt follow these principles because they think they are above the word or God(same reason they trashed the qualification list for being an elder mentioned in the epistle to Timothy and Titus) . The only thing they know is to cover up and exhibit elitism. This site I’m sure is opening hundreds of eyes to the truth of the gospel. This site has scripture as the authority to point out false teachings, you on the other hand have “feelings” and “emotions” to stand on to say what this site is doing is wrong. 0

  14. I’m not an electronic guy at all (I’m an electrician, my wires are BIG and SIMPLE). However I was able to follow the tutorial fully (in fact this was the best tutorial I found). First, I’d like to say great job, it’s not easy to write something like this. I’m hoping to play games I could never afford to play on my original SNES and this gave me confidence that I’ll get there eventually.I’m about to pull the trigger on buying parts, just a couple questions.You mentioned to pay attention at the Chips used (via ucon64), but never really explain what to look at (other than battery + SRAM). Two games so far gave different results:– Game 1: Rom Type: (35) ROM +SRAM + Battery + SA-1– Game 2: Rom Type: (f3) ROM + C4Question 1 – What does the (35) and (f3) stand for?Question 2 – Where can I find information on SA-1 and C4?I definitely feel I’ll have more questions as I go but just wanted to get those cleared up before jumping in.Thank you so much and again – great tutorial!LikeLike

  15. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
