In 1971, poet and counter-culture activist DASHIELL HEDAYAT teamed up with GONG to bring their artistic visions to reality. Psychedelic guitars, hypnotic bass lines and freaked-out sounds made this record a must-have for the «Continental Circus» and «Camembert Electrique» fans. One of the most essential french rock albums ever dug out!
