RIP Jacques Guiton

I just learned the sad news that Jacques Guiton, long time Magma afficionado and creator of the Magma Fan website, quietly and suddenly passed away last June.

Jacques was the one who recorded and shared the famous 1973 concert from Pont de Ce. This was our first exposure to the initial versions of Kohntarkosz and KA, and was one of the very first concerts that Jannick Top played with Magma. You can hear Jacques voice briefly at the start of track 3 on the recording. (I still can't understand what they are saying.)

RIP Jacques, and many thanks for your work on behalf of the Zeuhl community.
