Gong at Montserrat '73: No rock band had ever played in a Spanish Church but this was Montserrat, built on the spirit of the cathars, protectorate of political freedom and home to the black virgin. Softmachine at UFO '67: Activist and friend: John 'Hoppy' Hopkins had been arrested on trumped up charges and this performance by Daevid Allen aimed to hit back at the hypocrisies of the British establishment. Acidmothers Gong at RFH 2002: A revolutionary concert that split gong freaks in two camps; iconoclasts loved it, classicists hated it, but in the middle of the show, a bizarre marriage ceremony conjoined Cotton Casino and Billawtm. 3 films by Stefanie Petrik with Daevid Allen: 1. Conscience Strike: In defense of the terrorist. 2. Arrest Me: A satire on the war against terrorism. 3. Gaia: A love song to the deep and forgiving heart of nature.
