News: Daevid Allen's Final Album, Elevenses, Is Now Available

The Final Recordings from Gong & Soft Machine Co-Founder Daevid Allen!

Purple Pyramid Records released on February 12 the final album from Gong man, Daevid Allen. Daevid Allen Weird Quartet is a recording project bringing together Daevid Allen, founder of The Soft Machine and Gong, with Don Falcone of Spirits Burning, Michael Clare of Daevid Allen's University of Errors, and drummers Trey Sabatelli (The Tubes) and Paul Sears (The Muffins). Elevenses (2016) is the second album by this band, following 2005's DJDDAY, which was released under the band name “Weird Biscuit Teatime”. Daevid Allen Weird Quartet Elevenses (2016) is the last band album that Daevid worked on before his death, in March of 2015.

Christopher David Allen (13 January 1938 – 13 March 2015), better known as Daevid Allen, sometimes credited as Divided Alien, was an Australian and had a brilliant career as a poet, musician, artist, and one-time cab driver that spanned over fifty years. Daevid was constantly pushing boundaries and was always the center of activity. He continually inspired those around him to be creative and to achieve their best.

Daevid Allen Weird Quartet Elevenses (2016) album is a mixture of styles of music found throughout his career, plus a few surprises: a blues song in 7/4, a catchy Irish-tinged folk song, ambient and explosive instrumentals, a post-punk rave-up with Daevid's final message on a record.
