DAEVID ALLEN'S ROUNDHOUSE GONG LECTURE 1977
THE MYSTERIES OF THE PLANET GONG
DAEVID ALLEN AT THE ROUNDHOUSE LONDON 1977

In autumn of 1977 Daevid held two entertaining lectures in London on the history and mystery of the Planet Gong. Both events, one at the I.C.A. the other at the Roundhouse, were sold out. This tape is a recording of the R ouyndhouse lecture.
London's alternative community gathered, crowded together, sitting in the aisles, on each other's laps, eagerly awaiting illumination on the mythology of Gong Trilogy from the man who created it. The lecture was illustrated with slides and tapes and snatches of familiar Gong music appeared throughout. It was an open friendly occasion with questions from the audience helping Daevid expand the talk into the realms of the esoteric nature of life as he saw it.
As with all mythologies there are many layers of meaning. What you  perceive revealed in them at any particular time depends on where you are in your own life journey. The lecture is a still relevant overview and aid to understanding the hidden story and purpose of the mysteries of the Planet Gong.
I hope you enjoy it.
