Yeah that is very possible. I wouldn't be too crazy about repetitive riff rock either. Their debut is worth checking out at least. Really trippy jamming, sorta Kraut-like. I am pretty sick of chugga chugga hard rock stuff like that myself.
Yeah Magik Brother is really interesting. Very unique psych pop/rock, very quirky. I love it.. but yeah all those other Gong albums are amazing too. I definitely would like to hear more Daevid Allen, regardless if it sounds like Gong or not.
Thanks for those recs.. I'll have to do some reading/listening on those. Canterbury is another genre that I really should check more out of too besides just Soft Machine and Caravan, since Gong seems to fit in that Canterbury label.
