Sixty Minutes with Daevid Allen.
DAEVID ALLEN is a Canterbury Scene, Progressive Rock artist from Australia.
He was co-founder of the psychedelic rock groups Soft Machine (in the UK, 1966) and Gong (in France, 1967).
As for the Daevid Allen title here, this was the first time I've ever heard it and it's up-to-par I have to say. Didn't know exactly what to make of the off-the-wall ballad "Gaia", but I loved the Gong-like "Peaceful Warrior" as well as the fourteen-minute title cut "Australia Aquaria" and the Avant Garde "She" . On the first song, he just drones on for 5 minutes. The 14 minute Australia is an interesting love song to Australia, but it too has some bad vocal parts. There is some good music on this disc. On some discs, I rip just the musical parts I like and then get rid of it. I haven't done this with an Allen disc before (except for Mother Gong Live in New York).
Daevid Allen Weird Quartet is a recording project bringing together Daevid Allen, founder of The Soft Machine and Gong, with Don Falcone of Spirits Burning, Michael Clare of Daevid Allen's University of Errors, and drummers Trey Sabatelli (The Tubes) and Paul Sears (The Muffins). ELEVENSES is the second album by this band, following 2005's DJDDAY, which was released under the band name Weird Biscuit Teatime. Daevid Allen Weird Quartet ELEVENSES is the last band album that Daevid worked on before his death, in March of 2015. Daevid Allen Weird Quartet ELEVENSES album is a mixture of styles of music found throughout his career, plus a few surprises: a blues song in 7/4, a catchy Irish-tinged folk song, ambient and explosive instrumentals, a post-punk rave-up with Daevid's final message on a record.
