Home Artists - L to Z Artists - M Magma


French prog rock band Magma were assembled by seismic drummer Christian Vander to relate his operatic saga concerning the future disintegration of Earth and the subsequent efforts of a few citizens to begin a new society on the distant planet Kobaia – all related in Vander’s self-composed language of Kobaian.

The band came on like some jazz-funk Wagner wired on yellowed sci-fi paperbacks and crystal meth.

Magma have been lauded by none other than John Lydon (Sex PistolsPiL) and were apparently the favourite band of 80s snooker wiz, Steve Davis.
