Final Recordings from Gong & Soft Machine Co-Founder Daevid Allen

Featuring all new compositions, Elevenses finds Allen mixing styles from throughout his career including blues, Irish folk, ambient and post-punk.
"Our band started back in 2002. Daevid & Michael had contributed guitar & bass parts to a few tracks on the Spirits Burning "Reflections In A Radio Shower" album, which is Don's band. Listening late one night, Michael had a flash..."Don, these tracks with you, me, & Daevid have a special quality, a real chemistry. Let's make an album with just the three of us and a drummer."
"Don provided new raw material, & Daevid & Michael helped to shape & reshape the music into something different. Daevid called the trio Weird. Trey soon joined on drums, Daevid renamed it Weird Biscuit Teatime, and the completed tracks became the album "DJDDAY." Since then...we recorded in two studios in the Bay Area, recorded remotely from our corners of the world, & brought in Paul when Trey was unavailable.
"By 2015, we had a fully mixed album. Extreme highs & lows followed...Daevid reviewed the material & gave a majestic approval & hugs. Soon after, Daevid announced to the world that he was leaving us, & then left sooner than we expected. On our way to fully completing this album, we returned to our Weird roots & our quartet sensibilities. Once again, we are renamed." - Daevid Allen Weird Quartet.
