    If you're the kind of person who thinks that if a creature is mythical, that means you can't throw a benefit concert for it, or the kind of person who asks, "What exactly is an Electric Tepee? Did they just electrify the whole Tepee? Is it a Tepee with electricity? Is it a Tepee made out of Electricity? This album title makes no sense." that might preclude you from being a Hawkwind fan.

    I pretty sure there isn't an actual Manowar song titled that that isn't a b-side, but they do have a large number of songs that conceptually revolve around Thor, The God of Thunders, dick. Which is presumably electrified. 75% of their songs are about Thor riding across the sky in his chariot with his electrified dong looking down on trve brothers of metal making sure they are doing push ups and counting carbs.

    No, that was Gong. Hawkwind was for the people who read Heavy Metal magazine as a news publication.

    You're going to have to specify which version of Gong you are referring to. Wikipedia's helpful "graphical display of how many versions of Gong there are" is the crowning jewel of their site.

    I check that once every year just to see if I can suddenly interpret it correctly. The best part is someone made this and thought "This will help people understand the history of Gong". The arrows coming out of nowhere and pointing off into nowhere imply this isn't a standalone chart, there are actually more. I love how some people get arrows going to nowhere when they left, like, "They may have formed another version of Gong, we aren't sure yet".



    My favorite part is the "Moerlen" arrow that is going backwards from all the other arrows, implying at least one person has traveled backwards in time to join an incarnation of Gong. The 1972 lineup of Gong isn't constrained by things like the typical flow of space time. I also have no clue why the 1968 version of Gong and the 1972 version get two different boxes, but I'm sure it makes sense to Gong fans.

    At least Amon Duul only has two versions. Even if no one knows how to tell the difference.

    Which, of course, is not humanly possible.

    One of my favorite rock stories is Daevid Allen quitting Gong right before their 1975 Glastonbury set by claiming that an "invisible force" was preventing him from going onstage.
