Banana Moon is the debut solo album by Australian itarist and Gong leader Daevid Allen, released in July 1971 on the French BYG Actuel label. The album is sometimes referred to as Bananamoon and it was also reissued as a Gong album.

This wacky, whimsical musical cartoon emerged several years after Daevid Allen left the legendary Soft Machine, and soon after he'd launched his classic hippie prog rock band Gong. It was initially released on the French label Byg in 1971, and re-released in England on the Virgin subsidiary Caroline in '75.

DAEVID ALLEN - BANANA MOON (Decal CDLIK 63) CD 39m Though this psychedelic album is from the late-60's it is relatively new on CD, in fact it was released in 1990. BANANA MOON shows Daevid Allen's sense of humour later to be found in Gong. Such titles as Fred the Fish and Stoned Innocent Frankenstein are examples of his humour, but as well as humour there is some excellent music

Only for completionists (0%). Daevid Allen's, great Australian beatnik and Soft Machine and Gong musician's debut solo album is a strange thing. Strange not in a sense of Canterbury sound, whenever you're waiting for that.

If Banana Moon’s communal openness implies that the album is something of an opportune grab bag, pulling together whatever (and whoever) was nearest to hand, it also goes some way towards explaining the good humour evident throughout  .

This is Allen's first solo album which he recorded years after leaving the legendary Soft Machine and soon after forming the anarchic, experimental and drug-inspired ensemble Gong. The album's highlights include the moody 'Memories' with Robert Wyatt on vocals, one of the finest tracks to come out of the so-called 'Canterbury Sound', and the rocking opener 'Time Of Your Life' is a showcase for Allen's guitar pyrotechnics.
