With Flying Teapot, Gong and Daevid Allen, started a Trilogy, under the name Radio Gnome Trilogy, based on a vision Allen had had in 1966, where he saw the Future right in front of him. References to characters and episodes where already present in all their previous Albums, but it was only here that the story would be fully explored. Mista T Being, an Egyptologist, is gets his hands on a Magick Ear Ring (antique teapot street vendor and tea label collector) sold by Fred the Fish. The Ear Ring can pick up a Pirate Radio Station from Planet Gong. Together (Being and Fish), they roam off to the hymnalayas in Tibet, where they meet a Guru who gets drunk on Australian Alcohol. While this is going on, Zero the Hero, has a vision and starts worshiping Cock Pot Pixie, one of numerous Pixies that travel the Planet Earth with Flying Teapots. They are Pot Head Pixies. When he gives a cat his Fish-and-Chips the cat (in reality Good Witch Yoni) offers him back a Potion. The Story ends here and is continued in their follow-up Angel's Egg.
Best Tracks - "Radio Gnome Invisible", "Flying Teapot", "The Pot Head Pixies", "Zero The Hero And The Witch's Spell" and "Witch's Song/I Am Your Pussy". An insane Album, binding compositions and Fantastic Instrumental work, Guitars and the Saxophones especially. The story is as clear as it gets, the next Albums will really complicate it a lot, even more numbers and more references to Drugs and Buddhist Ideals than this one, but no one can deny how funny and interesting it is on itself, not counting with the extremely good Musical qualities.
