A little present to myself after escaping jury duty yesterday.
Stopped into @milkcratecafe for coffee and walked out with a Magma album instead. (I'll be back there on Saturday the 23rd to DJ brunch from 11-2, and of course I'll spin a track from this album.) "Attahk" from 1978, their "funkiest" album, yet just as strange and wonderful as everything else that Magma does. But what makes this particular album really special is the H.R. Giger cover. I'm still shocked that he only did this one album with them. Magma's music & Giger's aesthetic seemed like a perfect match, especially seeing as how they would've been paired up in Jodorowsky's Dune had it gotten made, but alas it was not to be.
