Daevid Allen has never been interested in meeting people’s expectations. The Australian-born Gong founder has spent nearly five decades surprising people with his creative detours. Under his guidance, Gong have released 11 previous studio albums in a style that was both peripatetic yet instantly recognisable. New album I See You comes at a time when Allen, now 76, has been suffering from serious health issues. Nevertheless, the record is blessed with his determinedly quirky drive.
