Planet Gong - Opium for the people 7 inch uk 1978

remember seeing this live in glasgow on a flying carpet sometime in the late 80s very early 90s. they did about a two hour set of noises and various prancing that was all well and good. they then went off for about ten minutes. then flew straight back on doing this wae mad old daevid allen flying straight into the crowd. every cånt going mental, him fleein aboot and me just standing staring. was excellent at the time and is still a standard for my 'marching around the house and teaching my kids' singing. if this aint punk, then i wasnt there and blah blah blah. cover of some proto punk french band that i cant for the life of me remember the name of and cant be arsed looking up. so help. they were connected, gong and the french band, somehow. daevid was in them before gong or some shite. to be honest, my memory of gong is in the same shelf as the residents. up stairs, 4 doors down and in the scary bit. Booooooo..!!
