Playlist Creator & Web Marketer. The son of a church organist father and pianist mother, South African born Brian Currin grew up surrounded by music. In his pre-teen years he realised that he had no real talent for playing music and he couldn't sing, so he immersed himself in the world of music by listening, exploring and researching. Which he still does today. He spent many years in corporate sales and marketing until his involvement in the re-discovery of Rodriguez, opened up a whole new world for him. He is very involved in promoting South African music, and is the co-owner of a number of music-related websites including which he founded in 1999.

  1. Hi Brian,

    So I’m not the only one driving around South Africa playing the sounds of the Radio Gnome Invisible? I was into Gong in a big way in the early 90’s and have recently dug out the cd’s again and after a cup of tea or 2 they sound just as weird again.

    Would you like some tea?

  2. I would agree with you on a few of your choices. But Daevid Allen never stops shocking me on how much that guy has released.
    As just tonight i have been playing the Albums
    Seven Drones
    Sacred geometry 2
    And just those two on their own have shocked me how great and wide this man can spread his wings into so many different styles , I would be very hard pushed myself to pick jjust 10 bits of Daevids Music.
    As the last time i counted up my Daevid Allen Solo and with Gong. Magik Brothers, , University of Errors , Kramer. And gawd knows what other bands hes been in. Not counting the Bootlegs of Gong. The last count was over 100. individual albums and cds.
    Top 10s are always very difficult with a every expanding and changing band like GONG. But i like the ones you have picked out
