Zabu — My Coffin's Ready
(Musea FGBG 4088.AR, 1993/1972, CD)
by Peter Thelen, Published 1994-02-01
Lucien Zabuski, aka Zabu, was the original vocalist for Magma, prior to the enlistment of Klaus Blasquiz. This is his first post-Magma solo album, which showcases his unique gravelly voice in a blues setting. The album is quite good, but it should be noted this is a blues-rock album, nothing particularly progressive here, and nothing that connects it with the Magma sound, despite the fact that it features Magma alumni Christian Vander, Francis Moze, Jeff Seffer and Teddy Lasry on a few tracks. Note that Zabu also contributes one live track to the Puissance 13+2 compilation (reviewed elsewhere in this issue of Exposé).
