The first live performance of The Steve Hillage Band in 25 years!
The Gong Family Unconvention at the Melkweg club in Amsterdam in November 2006 was a unique 3 day event in which all the original members of the legendary psychedelic band Gong came together and performed their own individual sets. Guitar legend Steve Hillage, who was a prominent part of the classic Gong line-up of 1973-75 felt it was a great opportunity perform again some of the songs from his 1970s solo albums. Steves live set at the Gong Family Unconvention in 2006 provoked a rush of excitement and emotion at the event, and this was beautifully captured on film and recording – and is now available on this audio CD. Performing with Steve were his long-time musical partner Miquette Giraudy on synthesisers, Gong bass player Mike Howlett who played on Steve’s 'Fish Rising' album from 1975, and Gong drummer Chris Taylor. In addition the audio CD has 4 exclusive bonus tracks from Steves 1970s archive, including 3 also recorded in Amsterdam on Dec 14th 1979 just a few days before the 1970’s Steve Hillage Band stopped touring
