Daevid Allen: N'Existe Pas! (Charly)***½/ Banana Moon (Charly)***½

Phil Sutcliffe, Sounds, 14 April 1979

YOUR PLANET Gong correspondent reporting again, and with better news than of late, Both of these albums have much to commend them to Daevid Allen cultists and even to people who appreciate the odder departures of British New Musick. It's to do with fashion rather than fact that outfits like Cabaret Voltaire and the Human League are considered OK modern heavy listening while Allen and friends have to be dismissed as deranged old hippies if you are to maintain your standing in the community.
