    When speaking about one of the many ‘plot points’ on one of the albums.

    “What, exactly (this statement) means is unclear.”

    Any time any one speaks to me about any musical project, the one absolute given is "it will not make big money". [tip of the hat to HK]

    "Death to false 'support the scene' prog!"

    please add 'imo' wherever you like, to avoid offending those easily offended.

    Watched it today during my lunch break (I kid: I don't work during the summer so "lunch breaks" are not a thing, but I imagine other people could potentially have been on their lunch break at about the same time, thus "lunch break"), and there was definitely a lot of that.

    The affected accents were . . . charming.

    But I didn't know how the albums were grouped or, actually, the large details of the whole story. Surely I could have looked that up in the decade or so that I've been listening to Magma, but I never did for whatever reason.

    I.e., it was just informative enough. A deeper dive would certainly be interesting, but I can't imagine there's much public appetite for such a thing.

    Ok, so I was in a Magma kick yesterday and listened to all the 70s studio albums. How come the drum production on MDK is so awful? Where are the drums and when they're there, how come they sound like cardboard boxes?

    One story I heard is that several of the individual drum tracks were erased to make room for more vocal tracks, and all that remained was the overhead mike, or something (not much more than that in any case). I think Vander complained about/regretted that decision in one interview... or was it liner notes?

    Oh, wow, that could explain it then. Thank you :-)

    Triscuits, it's clear desserts is an area of interest to you, so a fun quiz: The bis in Nabisco comes from Biscuit -- what's common between that and Marillion's Chelsea Monday?

    Hakehn Deiss, Irena Balladina, Walomendem were all performed in the recent shows, I liked the latter 2, the first track I could live without.

    No idea! Been ages since I listened to Script, so I just pulled out the LP and scanned the lyrics, but didn't spot the connection.

    Does it have to do with "tuberose?" "to be rose" and "North American Biscuit Company"? That's all I can think of.

    In the Chelsea district, NYC, there was a historic Nabisco factory, the location where they came up with the Oreo cookie. Now the building is the Chelsea Market. Was just making a loose connection for fun

    Nice!

    Is one of those tracks is the previously named Stevie Vander?
    Please don't ask questions, just use google.

    I think it is Hakehn Deiss, if you watched the Montreux show it was one of the "songs" somewhere in the middle of the show.

    Irene Baladina is the Stevie Wonder song, I think- it is a pretty song, but does not have the rhythmic impetus of other Magma songs.

    No, Irene Baladina is the nice bossa that starts with Kobaia chords.
    In setlist.fm of Montreux Hakehn Deiss appears as "stevie vander ", and it makes more sense too as Irene Baladina is indeed a ballad.

    Sadly not. The only thing I saw from that was the video (of I guess the first song) on the previous page of this thread.

    But thanks . Excitement is high.
