From the Madfish press release:
Daevid Allen & merry pranksters are back with not only a new album but a potent and colourful line-up that includes Cardiacs guitarist Kavus Torabi, 21st Century asteroid guitar man Fabio Golfetti, virtuoso hornsman Ian East'wind' on saxoflutes, plus sinuous bassist and sonic manipulator Dave Sturt trading sparks with the flamedog Orlando Allen's fiery drumming.
Tour dates, which run from July through December, are listed at the link below. They'll be hitting Israel, Russia, France, Germany, the Czech Republic, Finland, Ireland, the Netherlands, and the UK — though not necessarily in that order. So gas up your flying teapot with whatever fuels it and head out to the show!
