Here & Now - Been & Gone

Here & Now are an English space rock band formed in early 1974. They have close connections with the band Gong and in 1977/1978 worked with Gong's Daevid Allen and Gilli Smyth under the name Planet Gong. The lineup changes at the end of the 70s caused a slight shift in the bands approach to their songs, moving from their more improvisational style to a more structured approach. This show was a farewell performance by the band recorded at Dingwalls in Camden on the 31st January 1986.

Even if this was a farewell show they're still going strong today and you can give them a listen at their myspace page.
