Gong – the group was founded in 1968 and, like most groups from those years, its members decided to create music that no one would be able to pigeonhole. Thus, the band is credited with the following styles: psychedelia, space rock, jazz, avant-garde, krautrock, electronic rock, experimental rock, progressive rock and surreal soundscapes. At the same time, Gong is considered one of the groups, the progenitors of punk rock.
Gong, in the intention of the founders, was supposed to be like an ever-changing entity that forever moves to unknown - subconscious - territories. The band has released several dozen studio and live albums, but the full discography also includes albums released by side projects related to the group. They were: Planet Gong, Mother Gong, Pierre Moerlen's Gong, Gongzilla, NY Gong and Gongmaison. The turbulent history of the formation is not only constant changes in musical styles, but also personnel reshuffling. Over the years of the band's existence, nearly fifty musicians from virtually every continent have passed through the group's ranks.
