After 40 years, a DVD - a band I like very much

Post by jonetsu »

Greetings,

I'd like to drop a word about a band that I like lots, that was created more than 40 years ago, in 1969 and about which a film will be made this year.

The band is Magma. Here is the trailer of the movie. The tone is set dramatically high although IMHO it is fitting considering their work. This is not an everyday band. Far from it.

And here is a quite uplifting 2015 rendition of "Zombies" in Utrecht:

And since things often comes in pair, there will also be a DVD this year of their first concerts in China, of which the trailer is:

It took them almost a month of discussion with Chinese authorities to make them understand that the language they use in music is of their own conception.

Cheers.

Thanks for the link!

I saw them at Zappanale Festival last year. Don't know them from the old days (I was born too late...), but still they were one of the most impressive bands I heard yet.
Definitely will check out this film!
