Smyth approaches the microphone.
Showing a real penchant for trendiness,
she strips down to what appears to be a
plastic garbage bag to perform a pain-

THE HIGHLIGHT of this gong show,
is the appearance of Daevid Allen,
progressive rock pioneer and "inter-
planetary poet." Wearing a grossly
green jumpsuit and a huge, pointed
wizard's brim, Allen moves the band
known as N. Y. Gong into a lenthy
space-rock improvisation. After
leaving the stage for most of the num-

her, the earthly representative of the
planet gong returns to find his perfor-
ming time cut short by the bar's im-
minent closing. Dismayed, he spends
the next five of the remaining ten
minutes castigating the promoters.
Considering the casual attitude flaun-
ted by the performers all evening, this
seems particularly unfair. As Allen
grits his teeth for an appropriately
defiant rendition of his pseudo-punk
song "Opium for the People," an ec-
static member of the audience informs
me that this is the music of the future.
Personally I'll take the Sex Pistols ver-
sion of anarchy any day; they may not
know what they want, but they know
how to get it. From viewing the cosmic
muddle Tuesday night, one couldn't say
the same for Gong.
