It was the beginning of a new cycle for GONG. A new album, a new label, a new drummer, a new synthesiser wiz, and a new agency with the potential for a fresh management vision. This was our first gig of the 2000 naughty naughties and aside form three thoroughly distracted rehearsals, we hadn't played together for five months. To add to the pressure the gig was going out as Webcast and eventually would become a DVD and live CD. Somehow when the day came, we forgot all this and it all morphed into a huge fluorescent fancy dress party with a bunch or our old tribal pals and friends old and new in a club in Portobello Road - for years the epicentre of our London lifetimes.
