aka Dingo Virgin, El Alien, Bert Camembert, Zero, etc... Daevid Allen is one of the most longstanding, colorful and prolific artists of the progressive era. Leaving his native Australia in the early 1960s, Allen had already experienced the beats of Paris before arriving in Canterbury, where as luck would have it, he ended up as a border at Honor Wyatt's home. In between trips to Majorca, Spain, the Soft Machine was eventually born at the very beginning of London's underground era. Allen was left in France, but only to witness the student riots of 1968.

Founded: 1938

Refused entry to the UK, former Soft Machiner Daevid Allen remained in France and started Gong. Their earliest recordings take a cue from Barrett-era Floyd, but the hypnotic Continental Circus is underrated. Always maintaining a fluid line-up, things congealed enough for the classic Radio Gnome trilogy of albums. By 1975 however, Allen and Smyth headed down to Majorca, and the silliness subsided. Eventually Pierre Moerlen took over the helm, veering off into a full-fledged fusion outfit.
