About Time is a 1979 album by Daevid Allen and Gong-offshoot New York Gong. The basic line-up of New York Gong would continue as Material.

"Much Too Old" / "I Am A Freud" was issued as a 1979 7" single (Charly, CYS 1056), and "Jungle Windo(w)" / "Much Too Old" / "Materialism" as a 1980 10" EP.

Allen also released the 1982 album Divided Alien Playbax 80 which featured tracks recorded during these sessions. A further album, Daevid Allen and the Divided Alien Clockwork Band was released in 1997 (Blueprint, BP 269) of a live performance from the Squat Theatre, New York, August 1980 which featured tape loops from the Divided Alien Playbax 80 album. The Daevid Allen 1983 Alien in New York EP (Charly Records, CYZ 10) featured two tracks which were also based on tapes loops from these sessions.
