Magma to play three-night London residency


Magma have confirmed they’ll play a three-night residency in London in September.

They’ll set up at the city’s Cafe Oto on September 25, 26 and 27.

Cafe owners say: “We’re thrilled to welcome the seminal French band Magma to Oto for three very special nights.

“It would be futile at this point in time to sing the praises of Magma – it has become a legend. In forming Magma, Christian Vander initiated one of the richest creative efforts of the last 30 years.”

Tickets for the shows are available direct from the cafe’s website.

Meanwhile, a documentary entitled To Life, Death And Beyond charting the band’s history is in the works, with director Laurent Goldstein looking to raise $20,000 to tell the story. It currently has 15 days to run and has reached just over the $8000 mark.
