I had to shut that Magma song off after 2 minutes. Life is just too short. Oldfield's song is quite quirky and never boring.

An odd match really and I am a fan of both.  Not sure of the motive here.

Punkadiddle is such cutesy shameless fun I have to vote for it.  That, and it's by my man Mike Oldfield.

Didn't Vander claim that Oldfield ripped off Tubular Bells from an unreleased part of MDK?

As almost all I ever heard from Magma is for some strange reason I cannot catch rather unlistenable for me (I don't understand the hype around Magma here...), Mike is thus easy winner.  Although Punkadiddle isn't any special song IMHO.

I'm actually not familiar with either song here, but I'm a much bigger Magma fan than I am of Oldfield. Will check out soon.

Yes he did although clearly TB had a multitude of influences. No one else could have written and recorded this piece of music the way it was done so I'm tempted to say that Vander was bitter at not being able to make something this amazing. Having the germ of an idea is one thing but doing a full blown modern intrumental masterpiece is another..

However there was something else that influenced Oldfield even more than Magma and I confess I have forgotten what it was and am too lazy to research it properly.Smile

Personally, I prefer MDK to Tubular Bells, but it does seem odd to me that he would claim Oldfield ripped him off. Tubular Bells doesn't sound particularly Vander-ish. Anyway, I don't necessarily agree with Vander, I just find the supposed connection between the two to be rather intriguing.

Supposedly Oldfield was present at a Magma recording session in 1972 (when he was Kevin Ayers' bassist). I can't remember the exact piece Mike was accused of stealing.
