Paris-born Teddy Lasry was a member of the experimental French progressive rock band Magma, with whom he developed the genre of Zeuhl (= celestial music) and the artistic language of Kobaïan for the lyrics. With Magma, Lasry recorded the highly successful albums “Magma”, “2” (originally “1001° Centigrades”) and “Mekanïk Destruktïw Kommandöh”. “Mekanïk Destruktïw Kommandöh” was the commercial breakthrough for Magma, the band had a contract with Vertigo, Giorgio Gomelsky, the Rolling Stones’ first manager, produced the album with Virgin co-founder Simon Heyworth (Gong, Mike Oldfield and others) and the world was open to the musicians. But Teddy Lasry left Magma before they went back into the studio for “Köhntarkösz” in 1974. The multi-instrumentalist (flute, various other wind instruments, keyboards, percussion) pursued a solo career, signed a recording contract with RCA in Paris and released the highly acclaimed album “e=mc²” in 1976. Along with bassist Jannick Top (also of Magma) and drummer Andre Ceccarelli, Lasry played all the instruments on the atmospheric electronic album in the tradition of Mike Oldfield. After more than 47 years, this French masterpiece of electronic music is finally be re-released on CD.
