Backstage behind the "Espirits Libre" Broadcast

On November 17, 2007, a popular French talk show, "Espirits Libre (Free Spirits)", had Magma on as their musical guests. At the very end of the show, Magma played (an edited) 5 minute version of KA. The YouTube video of this broadcast is shown below.

Following this broadcast, there seemed to be a storm of indignation from many of the die-hard Magma fans. Many claimed that Magma was "cheated", "mocked", etc.

Now, take a peek behind the scene. The English translation from an article in Musik Zeuhl is here. (Of course, there are three sides to every story, so take the commentary from Musik Zeuhl with a grain of salt. But, if someone put a camera on MY vibraphone, I would be pissed in a major way.)
