WEIDORJE picture
French Zeuhl fusion supergroup of the late 1970's. Weidorje took their name from a track on Magma (6) - Üdü Ẁüdü which involved Bernard Paganotti and Patrick Gauthier. The rest of the band involved some of the busiest session talent on the Paris scene at the time. Weidorje were indeed very Magma styled, yet they also blended in elements of systemic music, and brass (an element long ago dropped in early Magma) giving them a distinctive sound of their own. Although Weidorje existed for a few years they only completed the one album. Sessions for a second album exist, but were never completed. A few live recordings also exist, of which two tracks feature as bonus on the CD reissue of their album. Virtually everyone involved in Weidorje went on to other projects and/or released solo albums shortly after Weidorje's demise.

Zeuhl is one of those genres that just makes me feel happy and fuzzy inside. This sole album by WEIJDORE accomplishes just that. This band was in fact started by Bernard Paganotti and Patrick Gauthier from MAGMA after wanting to continue down the path of the excellent ÜDÜ ẀÜDÜ album sound and I have to say they did an outstanding job in capturing it and even surpassing it.

I absolutely love this album as much as anything MAGMA has done. “Elohim's Voyage” is absolutely fantastic as it sets a scary atmosphere that takes you into the space of the alien realm and then ratchets its way up the musical ladder until the full zeuhl frenzy takes flight. “Vilna" follows suit and continues the repetitive rhythms with lots of interesting influences added. The first two tracks are the longest but it's the third shorter track “Booldemug” that just blows me away. It's just so....wonderful!

The bonus tracks on the CD are quite excellent live tracks that aren't just a repeat of the original albums three long tracks. It's funny because the music is absolutely spectacular and you'll hear at times a single person clapping as if they are playing to a room full of a handful of people at the most. The woes of playing complex prog in the late 70s when everyone was at a Dead Kennedys concert!
