"Music is the cup that holds the wine of silence. Sound is that cup, but empty. Noise is that cup, but broken.”

Robert Fripp


La vieille grille

Probably one of the earlier performance of Gong in 1968 at the club "La vieille grille" in Paris (France).
Gong was formed in 1967 by Daevid Allen, who, after he was founding Soft Machine in 1966, was denied to entry again to the United Kingdom because of a visa complication. 

with Daevid Allen: guitar and vocals
Gilli Smyth & Ziska Baum: vocals
Loren Standlee: flute

& the unknow pretty woman in the audience could be the french singer Marie Laforêt?
