Music Consumption: Daevid Allen
08/16/2000 Daevid Allen: live

With the University of Errors. Having listened to Gong as a teenager, it was interesting to finally see him live. Really good, tight band. One can only hope to be in such physical shape at 62. Silly, goofy, occasionally confrontational and disturbing, and it was nice to see the glissando guitar in action. This might be the first time I've ever been impressed by a sound check, too--his vocal improvisations while testing the mic were a small window of inventiveness and play into what's usually a tedious process.
