The first live performance of The Steve Hillage Band in 25 years!
Steve Hillage's live set at the Gong Family Unconvention in November 2006 provoked a rush of excitement and emotion at the event, and this was beautifully captured for DVD and audio CD.
Staged at the Melkweg club in Amsterdam, 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 to perform again some of the songs from his successful 1970s solo albums.
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 who started playing with the band in the 1990s. Also guesting was Basil Brooks on synthesiser, who played in Steve's band in the '70s.
