GONG ANNOUNCE SEPTEMBER UK DATES

gong

After the success of their 2009 40th Anniversary UK tour and the critically acclaimed new studio album '2032', GONG, the legendary progressive/psychedelic rockers will return to the UK in September 2010 for three special concerts in Glasgow, Manchester and London.

Support for these dates will come from very special guests Nik Turner's Space Ritual.

Tickets for GONG's September UK tour are on sale now and are available from 0871 230 0333 / www.artistticket.com. Dates include: Glasgow 02 ABC (Thursday Sept 9 - £18.50), Manchester Academy (Friday Sept 10 - £18.50) and London HMV Forum (Saturday Sept 11 - £20).

The forthcoming UK concerts will once again reunite core GONG members, including original founding member Daevid Allen (Guitar, Lead Vocal), Steve Hillage (Lead Guitar), Gilli Smyth (Space Whisper, Poetry), Miquette Giraudy (Synthesizer), Chris Taylor (Drums), Dave Sturt (Bass) and Ian East (Sax, Flute).

Described as exhilarating, compelling and other worldly, GONG's 2009 '2032' album represented the first time Hillage has recorded with original Gong founder, Daevid Allen, since 1974's 'You' album.

'2032' continues Gong's famous 'Radio Gnome' album trilogy which includes the psychedelic progressive rock albums 'Flying Teapot' (1973), 'Angel's Egg' (1973), and 'You' (1974). '2032' is the year that the Planet Gong makes full contact with the Planet Earth - a major new chapter in the continually evolving Gong mythology.

NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

aerosmith

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.

As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.
