Though the album cover bills this one to Gong, I'm with the people who refer to this particular lineup as "Acid Mothers Gong" - so-called because of the inclusion of Acid Mothers Temple members Kawabata Makoto on guitar and Cotton Casino on synths and vocals. Given that there are three guitarists on board, ACID MOTHERHOOD is by far the noisiest and heaviest album within the entire extended GONG family's lofty canon.
2032 is the twelfth studio album by Gong, released on September 21, 2009. While later Gong albums in the 1970s onwards did refer to elements of the Gong mythology, they were not seen as succeeding the Radio Gnome Trilogy in the same way as 2032.
Acid Motherhood may be a Gong album by name only, because of the collaboration of effectively three different groups. The fact that Acid Mothers Temple decided to invite themselves along for the ride says it all really, proving just how important and influential a musical figure Daevid Allen has been in the psychedelic rock underground

Acid Motherhood' is a Gong album in every respect. Acid Motherhood' is full of fire and weirdness, but contains a couple of mellower, wistful numbers that show Allen's wiser lyrical side - 'Olde Fooles Game' in particular seems to be about continuing his 1960s musical ideology for forty years, in spite of the huge changes that have taken place in that time. Over all, this is an album that does the Gong name its full justice in the 21st Century. The only way I can see old Gong fans disliking this is that it's TOO progressive.
Ever since its 25th anniversary tour in 1994, Gong had been sounding like a caricature of itself. Sure, the energy was there, the entertainment too, but the group was relying heavily on its past repertoire and, even in the new songs, still sounded like they were plowing the same fields as in the late '60s. Meanwhile, leader Daevid Allen obviously preferred to pool his creative energies into his . group, University of Errors, whose albums kept growing stronger and more personal. And then came this bombshell, Acid Motherhood.
