    SS- what else did they play beyond De Futura?
    I'm not lazy. I just work so fast I'm always done.

    ^ Among other things a shortened-down "Theusz", some of (I believe?) "Felicité", some "M.D.K." and a rather smoking "Kobaïa" rendition as encore.

    They played

    De Futura

    Theuz, minus the long ending
    Wurdah Itah, everything I think
    MDK, minus the first 2 tracks "Hortz Fur Dëhn Štekëhn Ẁešt" & "Ïma Sürï Dondaï"

    So technically its more or less the trilogy 'Theusz Hamtaahk', 1st,2nd, 3td movement.

    That's an estiamte of relevance.
    Sorry we didn't meet at the Cosmopolite - but like you, when experiencing Magma in concert there isnt' much room for talking.

    Priceless. And no time or room for meeting up at the magmatic, that's for sure. They played for 90 mins. but it felt like, well, half an hour.

    I had one - 1 - bottle of San Miguel during the whole ordeal. Just stood there, tapping my shoe and humming along. When it was all over, I trudged through November chills back to St. Hanshaugen and slept like a demon baby.

    That was probably the perfect state of mind in which to see a Magma show. I can't imagine being awake that long, but that's an appropriately epic, mood-setting prologue to weighty music.

    In Stockholm I believe they played Hortz Fur Dehn Stekehn West. I was also certain that I heard some Theusz Hamtaahk, but because the ending was missing I thought that my brain was so devastated by Wurdah Itah that I had just completely lost it.

    More or less it was the same set. But in the end it really didn't matter. Having Vander playig the drums some 5 meters away from me and at almost the same height level was an epiphany for me.

    as much as I've listened to these folks I still get the pieces of all their different epics mixed up all the time. I think being a fan of Magma scrambles your brain somewhat.

    Sweet!

    I would love to hear WI live. The Blum Tendiwa section is gorgeous!

    When I first saw Magma in Chicago in 1999, they did a 12-minute excerpt of Theusz. Just 12 minutes- but the most intense section with the unison guitar and bass. James, Manu and Bubu there. Just before Himiko jointed. I have never heard De Futura live either.
    I'm not lazy. I just work so fast I'm always done.

    great setlist. although it feels weird to truncate that from MDK (or anything really...)

    Back in 2010 they had a blazing Kobaia to finish the set. Still the best guitar solo I've heard.
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    Never let good music get in the way of making a profit.

    Man, this is a great story. Thanks for posting it. It sounds like a wonderful, borderline surreal type of night. So glad you enjoyed it. If I cared about rating threads, I'd rate this one higher because of your post. Hamatai!!

    I’ve been to that place where sleep deprivation can render experiences abnormally intense, as if the sensorium has been pulled out of its protective shell. The thought of seeing Magma in that state is almost frightening! But it sounds like it was, in the end, perfect.
