The drummer-percussionist from Strasbourg (France) Pierre MOERLEN could, during an especially prolific career filled with prestigious collaborations, impose his very particular percussive style, and create a reference in the style of Progressive jazz-rock. And this is in this musical style that Pierre MOERLEN'S GONG take us: proudly assuming his part of the great inheritance left by Daevid ALLEN and company, his interpretation is less focused on the psychedelic or space-rock. "Full Circle - Live 1988" is nevertheless and excellent witness of a German tour: a truly indispensable album !

The album "Live" can be regarded as a 'best of' with tracks from the albums Downwind, Gazeuse and Espresso II (1978), amongst others. Bassist Hansford Rowe snorts and frets with all his might, guitarist Bon Lozaga has clearly found his proper place in the band, brother Benoit Moerlen mistreats the vibraphone as if Sunday will never come, new boy Francois Causse hits everything he can get his hands on, while chief Pierre keeps pushing the music with his excellent drumming. When Mike Oldfield and Didier Malherbe join the party in opener Downwind in order to play extended soli, the fun reaches new heights.

After "Breakthrough" (1986), Pierre Moerlen's Gong mostly returned to the jazz-rock fusion sound that made them so enjoyable in the late '70s and early '80s on "Second Wind". Benoit Moerlen, who had departed after "Downwind" (1979), is back for this album, with stalwarts Pierre Moerlen and bassist Hansford Rowe forming the stable core of the band. Ake Zeiden, who had joined for "Breakthrough" adds some fine guitar work to this album and talented keyboardist Frank Fischer is a welcome addition.

Pierre Moerlen's band released very few albums in the '80s. Breakthrough, recorded in 1986, is a disappointing, bland project that bears little resemblance to any previous incarnation of Gong. Aside from bassist Hansford Rowe, who struggles to be heard on this recording, the group is comprised of entirely new personnel, including Dag Westling, who is credited for acoustic guitar, although such an instrument fails to surface in the mix.
