GONGTeesside based Psych promoters, Lost in the Woods, after a 3yr email exchange, have finally landed the sonic psych behemoth of GONG and are bringing them to the Georgian Theatre, Stockton on Tees for a special spring gathering! Supports to be confirmed, but will be complimented by the Lost in the Woods DJ collective.

Having previously promoted Silver Apples, The Telescopes, Warm Digits, Here and Now, TVAM and many local, national and international bands on the Psych scene over the past 8yrs, as well as curating the Annual Lost in the Woods Gathering Festival every July, but this one is the BIGGY!

GONG in any of their guises have never played Teesside before, so both a coup for LITW and the the area.

GONG:

The ever metamorphosing entity that is GONG launches, as ever, into unknown territory, with a new tour for 2021, destined to be talked about, discussed, and argued over, up and down the land.

From its beginnings in a French commune in 1967, through the Virgin Records years, mismanagement, court cases, break-ups and rejoinings, deaths and rebirths – there has always been a continuous thread of beautiful, dangerous and extraordinary music.

The current holders of the flame have come together over the last eight years; sinuous bass player Dave Sturt joined just as the album 2032 was shown to the world; Ian East (Sax, Flute) was the next to blow in through the portal; Fabio Golfetti brought his guitars from Brazil (after working with Daevid Allen for many years); Kavus Torabi (lead vox and guitars) appeared to Daevid in a vision; Cheb Nettles (drums) just sort of turned up.

In 2015, Daevid Allen passed away. His influence and legacy were honoured on the band’s subsequent album, Rejoice! I’m Dead! (2016). Over the past year GONG has performed with Steve Hillage Band (himself a former member of the 1970s GONG line-up) and released the critically acclaimed album The Universe Also Collapses (2019).

Gong’s musically diverse world includes shades of psychedelia, space rock, jazz, avant-garde, krautrock and surreal soundscapes.

“Postponing our November (2020) tour was the mother of all drags,” confesses Kavus Torabi. “We promised the transformation of utilitarian rooms across the country into shimmering psychedelic temples, bursting with radiance one and all, only to find ourselves all blindsided by an unprecedented metamorphosis.

Gong had no time for the old normal, so now in 2021, let us unleash THE NEW ABNORMAL!

There's a revolution coming and, by the gods, it's going to need a soundtrack. Let us congregate, sing praises to the moon and love, love, love.”
