This week: WEIDORJE - SELF-TITLED (1978)
Another brilliant (but short-lived) Magma splinter cell, showing several defining traits of their fathering group but also creating a very distinct sound of their own (see also: Zao). The main core of Weidorje parted ways with Christian Vander in the mid-70's, keeping his Zeuhl vocal patterns and aesthetic intact but adding their own spacey flourishes, such as a heavier emphasis on creepy synth and atonal psuedo-melodies.
This eponymous offering was their only release, and contains only five songs. But luckily, three of 'em are up over 12 minutes, and the other two are well over seven.
THAT'S A LOT OF PROG!!!
