This is the Volkswagen commercial I'm most proud of. We shot in the Bodega Bay area of Northern California and our directors were the amazing Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris. (years before their "Little Miss Sunshine" fame.) The soundtrack was by Nick Drake. It was recently named one of the 10 best car commercials in the past 25 years by the OneClub.

Best of Gong (from 1996)

Also, and related, Daevid Allen - Banana Moon.

Those first three Gong albums are my favorites. I don't know if you'll like any of it, but you might enjoy Camembert - it''s spikier than prog tended to be, and it managed to be both angry and funny at the same time, which is always a good way to deal with anger.
