Another great photo from Les Genies du Rock

Akoustikus just sent this photo. I have never seen Klaus wearing a white robe before.

Any more info about this photo? JCA?

Another photo from Les Genies du Rock

Another photo from Akoustikus from the book "Les Genies du Rock". This one looks like the early 70's, as we see Moze on bass.

Magma - November 25, 1972 - Festival Sigma 8, Bordeaux

This is from our friend, JC. He got them from the Michel Graillier page on Facebook.

According to Ork Alarm,

1972-11-25 Bordeaux (33) Palais des Sports (Sigma 8 Festival with Storchhaus choir - onstage at midnight)
and the lineup was Christian & Stella Vander, Klaus Blasquiz, René "Stündehr" Garber, Jean-Pierre Lembert, Jean-Luc Manderlier, Gérard Bikialo, Marc Fosset. However, it looks like Graillier in the photos, not Manderlier, and according to Ork Alarm, Graillier joined Magma in early 1973.

(Update - According to JCA,Bikialo and Fosset were not at this gig)

Magma - Conservatory of Paris - January 19, 2011

On January 19, 2011, Magma participated in a "concert/masterclass" with musicians from the Conservatory of Paris. The concert consisted of only one piece, Emehntehtt-Re, and from what I have heard, the ensemble really burned up the piece!

It was also reported that the concert was being professionally filmed, and hopefully, Seventh will decide to release the video.  (Thanks to Tim for the correction)

We thank our good friend, Tim H, from the blog A Cup of Tim, for these great photos.There is additional commentary in the latest edition of Ascension magazine.
