MAGMA
THE FORMATIONS
(recently updated September 2003) Andy Garibaldi / Paul Mummery (e&oe) With Addition from Denis Desassis

Magma # 1 - July 1969 Christian Vander - Drums (previously with Chinese) Laurent Thibault - Bass (previously with Zorgones) Francis Moze - Keyboards (previously with Zorgones) Lucien Zabuski aka "Zabu" - Vocals (previously with Zorgones) Jean Jaques Ferry - Guitar (previously with Chinese) Jean Goger - ? Strictly speaking this was most definitely pre-Magma! They played a short tour billed as the CARNABY STREET SWINGERS, during which time they developed the use of their onomatopoeic language, and most importantly they performed 'Kobaa' for the first time. From an historical point of view, this can therefore be considered the true starting point, since Christian's work prior to this lineup was either Jazz or R'n'B.

Magma # 2 - August '69 to September '69 Christian Vander - Drums Laurent Thibault - Bass Francis Moze - Keyboards Rene Garber - Bass Clarinet Eddy Rabin - Keyboards Claude Engel - Guitar (previously with Omega Plus) Lucien Zabuski aka "Zabu" (went solo) Still pre-Magma as such, the expanded line-up was known as Uniwera Zekt Magma Composedra Arguezdra. Some sources claim that Uniwera Zekt was conceived by Garber. During constant rehearsals and an early studio recording they met Klaus Blasquiz. Material recorded around this time still exists in Vander's archives awaiting "documentation" on the AKT label.

Magma # 3 - October '69 to January '70 Christian Vander - Drums Laurent Thibault (left to produce) Francis Moze - Bass Rene Garber - Bass Clarinet Franois (Faten) Cahen - Keyboards (previously with Mal Waldron)

Magma # 16 - October '76 to December '76 Christian Vander - Drums, Vocals Klaus Blasquiz - Vocals Didier Lockwood - Violin (Last concerts with Magma) Michel Graillier - Keyboards Gabriel Federow - Guitar Janik Top - Bass 'd Wd' issued as an LP by VanderTop in October 1976. Vander and Top played one gig as UTOPIC SPORADIC ORCHESTRA with other musicians (including Didier Lockwood and Stella Vander). Magma toured, then fell apart when Top and Federow eventually left. But Christian reformed Magma on 15-12-76.

Magma #17 - December '76 to Spring '77 Christian Vander - Drums, Vocals, Keyboards Klaus Blasquiz - Vocals Benot Widemann - Keyboards Clement Bailly - Drums (2nd Drummer, previously with Tryptique) Guy Delacroix - Bass (ex STIVELL) Jaen De Antoni - Guitar (ex STIVELL and PATRICK MORAZ groups) Florence Bertaux - vocals (Left) Christian had played with Clement Bailly several years earlier, having spotted him when his group supported Magma at the Gait Lynque in May 1970. This line-up rehearsed for a month before touring, they were supposed to tour Britain too but the promoter cancelled the gigs. The addition of a second drummer was praised as it gave Vander more room for vocals and piano.

Magma #18 - Spring '77 to July '77 Christian Vander - Drums, Vocals, Keyboards Klaus Blasquiz - Vocals Benot Widemann - Keyboards Clement Bailly - Drums Guy Delacroix - Bass Jean De Antoni - Guitar E. Bois (Liza Deluxe) - Vocals Stella Vander - Vocals More attention was given to stage presentation, and the music too became more rock orientated, as shown by a Vander composition 'Morrison in the Storm' which was dedicated to Jim Morrison. Around this time 'Inedits' was released. The group split and Magma was not heard from again until April 1978.

Magma #19 - Late '77 to May '78 Christian Vander - Drums, Vocals, Keyboards

Klaus Blasquiz - Vocals Benot Widemann - Keyboards Stella Vander - Vocals Rene Garber - Bass Clarinet Guy Delacroix - Bass Lisa Deluxe - Vocals Unknown to many, Vander had reformed Magma and spent several months at the end of 1977 recording a new album. This was announced in April 1978 and 'Attahk' was released in May. A tour of France scheduled for June failed to materialise, but two isolated concerts were played in May 1978.

LP - Magma "Attahk" (September to November 1977) Christian Vander - Vocals, Drums, Percussion, Piano, Rhodes, Chamberlin Rene Garber - Bass Clarinet, Vocals (?) Guy Delacroix - Earth Bass Guy Delacroix - Air Bass Klaus Blasquiz - Vocals, Percussion Benot Widemann - Grand Piano, Rhodes, Mini-Moog, Oberheim Stella Vander - Vocals Liza Deluxe - Vocals Tony Russo - Trumpet Jacques Bolognesi - Trombone Track List: 1.

Liriik Necronomicus Kahnt (Christian Vander) 4:59 5. Maahnt (Wizard's Fight vs.The Devil) (Christian Vander) 5:29 6. Dondai (To An Eternal Love) (Christian Vander) 7:59 7. Nono (Christian Vander) 6:17 For the recording sessions, Guy Delacroix was both Ourgon and Gorgo, but Jean-Luc Chevalier became Gorgo by the time touring began. Also note that (for the first time) Christian Vander is the lead vocalist and Klaus Blasquiz is a backing vocalist.

Magma #20 - August '78 to September '78 Christian Vander - Drums, Vocals, Keyboards Stella Vander - Vocals Rene Garber - Bass Clarinet Michael Herve - Bass (ex ZOO) Lisa Deluxe - Vocals In August 1978 there was a story that this line-up had made a record to be called 'Dhrstn-Stndhr' which they planned to release on the Freebird label in September. In fact it was never released and it

was meant to be a solo album by Ren Garber, not a Magma album (see Ork! Update - Ed.). Klaus started trying to organise a series of reunion concerts, an idea that eventually led to the 'Retrospektw' albums.

Magma #21 - October '78 to June '79 Christian Vander - Drums, Vocals, Keyboards Stella Vander - Vocals Klaus Blasquiz - Vocals (Left) Rene Garber - Bass Clarinet Michael Herve - Bass Andre Herve - Keyboards Jean-Luc Chevalier - Bass (previously with Zig Zag) Lisa Deluxe - Vocals Maria Popkiewicz - Vocals (previously with Zoo) Extensive touring in France with a new, magnificent stage show, old and new material, three pieces in particular were 'Why this Man?' a homage to Coltrane, 'Attahk' which was later recorded as 'Retrovision' and 'Otis'. Klaus was getting disenchanted with the lack of proper organisation and management, some accounts relate that he effectively left the band in June '79 and the planned tour of Scandinavia was cancelled. Magma had almost a year without any concerts. Vander played several concerts with his jazz group ALIEN QUINTET.

Magma #22 - March '80 to January '81 Christian Vander - Drums, Vocals, Keyboards Stella Vander - Vocals Klaus Blasquiz - Vocals (Left) Guy Khalifa - Vocals Dominique Bertram - Bass (previously with Alien) Jean-Luc Chevalier - Guitar Benot Widemann - Keyboards (previously with Alien) Lisa Deluxe - Vocals Maria Popkiewicz - Vocal Magma looked set to re-sign for the Phonogram label in March, and due to his disenchantment Klaus almost did not take part in the three concerts in Paris in June. These shows each lasted six hours and featured reformations of the line-ups from '71, '75 and '80. All the musicians took part in the grand finale of 'MDK'. The Philips record deal never occurred and the 'Retrospektw' LP's were eventually released on RCA with some of Klaus' vocals overdubbed by Guy Khalifa.

LP - Magma "Retrospektw I - II" and "Retrospektw III" (9,10,11-06-80) Klaus Blasquiz - Vocals (1,2) Stella Vander - Vocals (1,2) Liza Deluxe - Vocals (1,2) Claire Laborde - Vocals (2) Maria Popkiewicz - Vocals (2) Didier Lockwood - Violin

In May and June news was revealed that an LP and an EP were due to be recorded by the above line-up but with Bertram and Widemann replacing Eliard and Fouquey, and without percussionists Laizeau and Kokelacre. As ever these plans came to nothing.

In February, news came of a new Magma LP due for release soon, recorded by Christian, Stella, Liza Deluxe, Khalifa, Eliard, Chevalier (Gorgo), Fouquey and Gauthier. This project was to include 'Another Day' (which was a much shorter piece based on Coltrane's 'Love Supreme' in those days), 'Le Chant du Sorcier', 'Otis', 'Do the Music', 'Funky Devil' and 'Makiavelk Strme'. No exact release date was given and none came. Then in July / August we were told that the new group were in the studio doing the new LP, to include 'Otis (Kobaan version)', 'Le Chant du Sorcier', 'Do the Music', 'I Must Return (English version)' and others. There was also to be an E.P. of 'Otis (French version)' and 'Funky Devil'. Guess what? Yep, nothing happened. On July 23rd,

Boom! On the 6th, 7th and 8th of October 1983, Christian Vander revealed his new main group to the world. For a year, primarily a live outfit playing Magma tracks and new pieces while sounding and feeling like the classic group of the old days, then in September '84 it was announced that Magma had signed to Exil Records in Germany and were to release an LP in October. Although the name Magma was to be used, the line-up would essentially be the OFFERING band. After Offering's debut at the Thtre du Forum des Halles in Paris, they went on to do a further twelve consecutive dates at the same venue in May.
