Does anybody know how the swedish band Tribute got in touch with Pierre Moerlen? Two of the guys in the band (Gideon and Christer) went down to Mike Oldfields soundcheck at Roskilde in Denmark and and asked Pierre if he wanted to join their band. Pierre thought they were nuts and gave them a false phonenumber. They then found his adress in Paris and sent him some demos. Pierre liked what he heard and then joined the band. Isn´t the story fantastic?
You can listen to Pierre playing with Tribute here :http://focusmedia.soderkoping.se/Part II mp3.mp3
Two members of the band Tribute is now playing Irish folkmusic and can be found at: Quilty

Hello Suarn!

First of all, welcome on board (never best said!;) and thanks for the info. It's curious to know that sometimes an unknown but interesting project can be attractive to such talented musicians.

One little advice: use iB Code buttons to make the links linkable...

-- Tribute featuring Pierre Moerlen (mp3)

-- Quilty Music

Coul you please tell me what Tribute albums did Pierre Moerlen played in? I'm searching on eMule, but there are so many Tribute bands ;)

See you,

-- Wayfarer

You can find all the - IMHO fantastic - Tribute albums listed here. Pierre played on all of them except for the fourth and last one, Terra Incognita.

DOH! too late, so just a little correction:

Tribute has indeed released 4 Albums, of which just two feature Pierre Moerlen (and some may be out of print):

New Views (1984) (nope, no Pierre here, but still a great album)

Breaking Barriers (1986) with Pierre

Live! (1986) with Pierre, and a kickass drum solo!

Terra Incognita (1990)

Other side of the collaboration is
Pierre Moerlen's Gong : Breakthrough
where most musicians besides Pierre are from Tribute

With the title tracks of 'New Views' and 'Terra Incognita' both in the 20-25 min range and highly recommended to all TB/HR/OD fans.

Thank you for correction, I really believed that New Views featured Pierre, but indeed not. I agree that it's still a great album. :)

Hi there!

I've been trying to find those recordings on eMule, but the only one available is Breaking Barriers, but it doesn't have any complete source...

Any chance to get any of those recordings on mp3?
