Editorial Reviews

Daevid Allen has been a highly respected figure in the progressive music circle for over 40 years. On 'Divided Alien' Allen used the then embryonic sampling and video technology resulting in this discordant, experimental set of layered tape-looping and Allen's sung/spoken poetry and unique guitar solos.This reissue includes the four hard to find bonus tracks 'Bananareggae', 'Are You Ready', 'Oo, La La' & 'Side Windo', all of which were recorded in Jamaica in 1978. Comes packaged in an attractive digipak reproducing the original album's artwork, credits and sleeve notes, in addition to a new authoritative commentary on the recordings. Snapper. 2005.

Format: Audio CD
This album has little likeness to Gong, Daevid Allen's 1970s Cantuberry progressive band.

Playbax 1980 is seventeendissonant soundscapes, short pieces featuring digital drums and keyboards, and shining, strange guitar webs. Allen sings over these angular backdrops, mostly through vocal processors, Completely otherworldly.

This has nothing to do with 1970s progressive rock and everything to do with the outer limits of new wave experimentation. I like it that way. While Yes and ELP were doing retrotunes, the underground progressive artists of the 1970s, like Allenm stayed under.

When you have never played an arena, there is no limit to where else you can go.
