About Time is a 1980 album by Daevid Allen and Gong offshoot New York Gong. The basic line-up of New York Gong would continue without Allen as Material. Much Too Old, I Am A Freud was issued as a 7 single in 1979 Charly, CYS 1056, and Jungle Window, Much Too Old, Materialism as a 10 EP in 1980. Allen also released the 1982 album Divided Alien Playbax 80 which featured tracks recorded during these sessions. A further album, Daevid Allen and the Divided Alien Clockwork Band was. About Time documents Daevid. About Time documents Daevid Allen's 1979 New York trip to partake of the then-happenin' CBGB's scene. The new sound is an odd hybrid of psychedelia Preface, new wave I Am a Freud and punk Much Too Old, with a lyrical sentiment reminiscent of early-'70s Gong Jungle Window. The CD opens with an effects-laden recording of Allen reciting his trippy poetry. Psychedelic Rock. New York Gong. Daevid Allen's Gong as New York Gong.

This album has nothing too much in common with classic Gong albums. In fact, it is New York Gong, something like Daevid Allen solo project. Quite interesting album, but far from Gong or usual progressive rock. For Daevid Allen fans and Gong collectors. O My Photograph - Original - New York Gong.
