Professional musicians as field testers are taken very seriously at Sommer cable because we depend on their honest opinion. Famous musicians are at an advantage because they typically hang out with an entire team of highly talented technicians who have very fast access to innovations and can voice suggestions for improvement as well as critique. This all benefits the quality of our products and we are very happy to have met these great people at gigs, through friends, and even in person. You will find that these people – if you should have the opportunity to get to know them personally – are very likable and down-to-earth, and that we are a great match. At Sommer cable we would like to say thanks to all these great musicians, photographers, bands, and managers for their uncomplicated cooperation. As a special service you can download the current tour dates or read up on the latest news about them on our website at any time.

On this page you will find a small excerpt of friends and users who are always willing to help us out with their expertise.

The ever metamorphosing entity that is GONG launches, as ever, into unknown – and unknowing – territory with a new album and tour, destined to be talked about, discussed, and argued over, up and down the land.

From its beginnings in a French commune in 1967, through the Virgin Records years, mismanagement, court cases, break-ups and rejoinings, deaths and rebirths – there has always been a continuous thread of beautiful, dangerous and extraordinary music.

The current holders of the flame have come together over the last seven years; sinuous bass player Dave Sturt joined just as the album 2032 was shown to the world; Ian ‘Eastwinds’ East was the next to blow in through the portal; Fabio Golfetti brought his guitars from Brazil (after working with Daevid for many years); Kavus Torabi appeared to Daevid in a vision; Cheb Nettles just sort of turned up.

GONG’s musically diverse world includes shades of psychedelia, space rock, jazz, avant-garde, krautrock and surreal soundscapes.

Signed-up members of the precariat, Gong have never played it safe.
