Here's a wee message from Jonny Green at GAS (Gong Appreciation Society):
"We have been immersed in this project for months and now the intensive home stretch work schedule lies before us like a shining path to a late September release date. It has been and is intense, but at the same time the deepest of fun - inner/outer dimensional time travel made real - or something like that!
The Limited Edition Box will be packed with all manner of sounds, images and items to astound and delight. I suggest putting a couple of cappuccino's worth, or a pint of beer's worth of cash into a piggy bank each week - you don't want to miss this. I'd love to be there for the opening of every box."

‘Searching For The Spark’ is released on 21st October 2016.
