INCLUDING FOR THE FIRST TIME, WURDAH ITAH PRIMA MATERIA, THE ORIGINAL DEMO USED FOR TRISTAN & ISEULT'S FILM SOUNDTRACK.
"Winter 1971. Between two series of concerts, we are pacing in circles like caged animals. Georgio GOMELSKY senses the tension in the air and decides to book the little Chappell studio for us for a few days in order to release our pent-up energy. On 3 January 1972, Klaus Blasquiz, Jean-Pierre Lembert, René « Stundëhr » Garber and I enter the studio. Despite the many imperfections of this recording, it remains an essential document to understand the origin of Wurdah Ïtah and to feel our frenzy at the time." C. VANDER
1974 - 2nd movement from the THEUSZ HAMTAAHK TRILOGY
WURDAH ITAH was recorded in April 1974, just one month before the sessions which produced KOHNTARKOSZ. It forms the second movement of THEUSZ HAMTAAHK, an epic work in three movements of which MEKANIK DESTRUKTIW KOMMANDOH, recorded a year earlier by MAGMA, forms the final part. Performed by the core players in MAGMA at that time - Christian VANDER (piano, drums, vocals), Jannick TOP (bass), Klaus BLASQUIZ (vocals, percussion) and Stella VANDER (vocals) - WURDAH ITAH is music stripped down to its bare essence. Although a total contrast to the splendour and orchestral power of M.D.K., it nevertheless has just as great rhythmic power and surprising vocal lyricism, unquestionably marked by the claws of MAGMA.
Recorded and mixed April 4th, 5th& 8th 1974 at STUDIO DE MILAN (Paris) by Jean-Pierre BAMEULLE
