Gong: Camembert Electrique
The Grand Fromage of absurdist rock and the anarchist oddball legacy of Daevid Allen.
As Virgin Records pointed out in 1974, there were several ways of parting with 59p. You could buy a puncture repair kit, a pound of mushrooms or, for the hernia-stricken on a budget, a second-hand truss. Better still, raved the press ad, why not try Gong’s Camembert Electrique, a full album for the same price as the latest Wombles single?
