Artist Portrait


Jazz and Rock

Another branch in the Gong family tree, Gongzilla was a reassembly of several of the members of Pierre Moerlen's Gong and played a similar jazz-rock fusion. Formed in 1994 by guitarist Ben Lozaga and bassist Hansford Rowe, the group was completed with guitarist Allan Holdsworth, percussionist Bobby Thomas Jr., and vibraphonist Beniot Moerlen. They released "Suffer" in 1995, which found the band exploring some more hard rock stylings than Piere Moerlen's Gong. "Thrive" followed in 1996 which added drummer Gary Husband and guitarist David Torn to the mix.
