    I bought tickets but I'm still waiting for discount plane tickets. I'd be flying from Brazil just for the concert.

    No, this is the facepalm moment when Vander realizes what 'Slag Tanz' really means.

    It means this (at least in German)

    I would understand why it would be an issue in live settings, but in the studio?
    As much as I lone Vander's drumming, I wouldn't be sad if he did abandon it to stay up front (just as long as he's not blocking the views to the ladies up there), because AFAIAC, I've always thought CV was the band's best singer by a margin.

    here is why...

    OK, CV might want to wear short-sleeved T-shirts to hide that primate upper arm pilosity

    It won't take much arguing to convince me. I love Christian Vander's singing with Magma as well as Offering, especially as his voice has aged over the years.

    I too love CV’s singing. He still has a beautiful voice.
    He might be the best singer in Magma but let’s be reasonable...he’s the best drummer in the goddamn world.
    Still.

    I only know that the Theatre du taur recording from 1975 has the most excrutiangly amazing drumming I've ever heard - regardless of genre. The guy's not merely on fire, he completely owns the flames.





    [B-but that dude who disliked Yoshida-san (and namechecked him as a Muppet) was neither impressed with Vander! He was a huge fan of the drummers in Pork Three, Slim Dingsom and The Muscle Cox, tho', 'cause he knew 'em from before]

    A factor that needs to be considered in this kind of comparisons is how late one comes into the picture. So hats-off to the latecomer, whose road is veiled by the shadow of giants, and still creates in a totally unique way.
    I am sure that neither can do what the other does, so it's only a question of individual taste here...

    Any particular part you are thinking of? I own that and like it, but I don't remember it being any more crazily on fire than any of the 1974/75 period stuff.....

    The point from ca. 17:30 in "Köhntarkosz" and the final minutes of "Komandöh".

    But yeah, the Zühn Wöhl Unsai recording is just as intense. But the Theatre album is special to me because of the rather raw directness of the recording itself, arguably done with two mikes or perhaps four at the most. They're almost present in the room with me when I play it loud. I got to play it from the deck of a mid-size shrimpboat through a powerful set of speakers some 10 years back, and I swear that force made actual waves in a steaming summer ocean! A great time had by all except for the fleeing pollocks.

    Yes. He's killing it. No doubt. I had forgotten how over the top it is.

    I love the playing on Zühn Wöhl Unsai but hot damn Klaus is completely out of tune in that recording. Sorry for the sacrilegous statement, but he's nothing compared to Antoine Paganotti.

    Only because Elvin Jones, Max Roach, Rashied Ali and Tony Williams are all deader an entire Enterprise away team full of red shirts.

    But I'll tell ya what, Yoshida-san rocked the house when I saw him play with Samla Mammas Manna.
