Sometimes, a band's creative energy is such that they can go on to create further albums of a similar or even better calibre than the first. Gong is one of these bands, though in this case their first album remains, in my opinion, their best. Not the most accomplished musically certainly. Not the most developed, in particular in terms of the pot head pixie universe. Not the best produced. Not the most critically acclaimed.

An absolutely strange UFO with very weird music well worthy of GonG but it is right now just Gong. In August 1969, they returned to Paris and recorded their debut album Magick Brother with Gong, which was released under the BYG Actuel label. At the time, the group did not have a bass player, so it was up to Allen to play the instrument

Leaning a little toward the pop end of the spectrum, Magick Brother is a fairly light album, devoid of the blatant psychedelic/hippie qualities which shine through so brilliantly on the later Camembert Electrique. Smyth's "space whispering" makes its debut on the opening track, though the album is not as spacy as it is ethereal. Gong Song" is a highlight, with lyrics describing a pothead pixie who came down from the planet Gong to sing his green song – the roots of the Gong myth. Gong, Magick Brother.

Indeed, Magick Brother is the sort of album bands create when they just don't have any concrete musical ideas. All is forgiven however, because Allen thankfully went on to create more memorable lic rock classics soon after Gong's debut record. Looking at it from a songwriting aspect, Magick Brother didn't really have anything to do with the perpetual brainchild of Daevid Allen: Rather, it was more like the brainchild of Allen's (then) soulmate, Gilli Smyth, who actually wrote all songs.
