Casa de discuri: Charly
Formed in 1969 by Daevid Allen, one of the founder members of Soft
Machine, Gong established itself as one of the most unique, innovative
and experimental rock groups of the Seventies.
Absurd, anarchic and powerfully psychedelic, ›Camembert Electrique‹ is
the first proper Gong album. Originally released in France on BYG Actuel
(a Charly label) in 1971, then licensed to a young Richard Branson for
his fledgling Virgin label in
the UK in 1974, this iconic and influential album is still devastatingly
fresh-sounding in the 21st century. Weirdness, wisdom, outré rock of
the ›highest‹ order - as you'd expect from the founding-father of
acid-rock Daevid Allen.
About this release – LP
»Camembert Electrique« is released worldwide by Charly Records as a
strictly limited edition audiophile LP. For the first time ever, the
album has been remastered from the recently discovered original BYG
master tape and pressed on
180-gram heavyweight vinyl. The LP is packaged in a lavish replica of
the original gatefold sleeve, complete with all inserts.
To the delight of Gong fans everywhere, the album’s original track
listing, correct song titles and timings have been fully estored
(they’ve been wrong since 1974….!).
Samples taken from ›Camembert Electrique‹ have been included on Gong’s
brand new album ›I See You‹ recently released to critical acclaim. Gong
are also performing a career-spanning live show which includes material
from ›Camembert Electrique‹.
