    i'm so intrigued with how this will sound. new drummer and in a few months they already have a double album's worth? there sure must've been a lot of chemistry.

    Rune announces a ltd Gold edition in 300 copies.

    The cover is the painting "Babels tårn" (Tower of Babel) by the painter Håkon Gullvåg. Yes - I recognised the painter, but had to look up the name of the work (it's obvious but I had to make sure). And nobody put this on the cover without a deeper meaning behind it.

    He also painted this one together with Håkon Bleken. That might also mean something to psychonauts.

    Crazy!

    How did they managed to get permission to use Gullvåg's artwork?
    He is one of the greatest and most interesting painters of his generation.

    If The Tower is worth this treatment is going to be massive!

    ooooh Alain Johannes? That would've been interesting. But anyway "Musically this is in parts the hardest album Motorpsycho has perpetrated in a while, and the material runs the gamut from short and sweet to lengthy and mean" aaah can't wait! Sadly I'm on a 2 week holiday right around the release date. I guess the next live shows will be highly energetic and out there!

    I'm very excited about this news!!

    "How did they managed to get permission to use Gullvåg's artwork?"

    I'm just guessing, but it's not unlikely that they've known him personally since the Fight-for-Svartlamon-days, since Gullvåg was involved in that. If so I guess it's not too difficult to get permission?

    It's also interesting to note that the catalogue number on Rune is no longer "RCDxxx", but "MPCD101" - did they get their own "sub-label" (or something) on Rune?

    @mybestfriend83 - That was me quoting a tweet from Stickfrau, and it was about the music from Begynnelser. Regarding this one - I have no clue. But I'm pretty sure it won't happen before the proper release.

    @fco: I think 5 of them has been played live so far:
    The Tower, Intrepid Explorer, In Every Dream Home, The Cuckoo
    and Ship Of Fools.

    I'm guessing they played a few more at that open rehearsal in Trondheim
    back in March, but no audio evidence to support that claim...

    I wonder about the connection between "In Every Dream Home" and Roxy Music's "In Every Dream Home A Heartache". There must be some.

    Ha but another obvious question: What's A.S.F.E.? And why do they always tease us with riddles?

    I like the space and ocean references in the titles, some of their best songs went there.

    The first song at Verkstedhallen was called B.T.F.B.L. - not to be found on the album.
    Maybe on one of the four "missing" vinyl sides, the suspected tour EPs?

    @ThorEgil: Actually, B.T.F.B.L is the same as In Every Dream Home
    Just compared the recordings from Trondheim and Tromsø, and they match.

    I'm pretty sure it is an ode to Christopher Smith, the former Assistant Secretary for Fossil Energy (US Department of Energy).

    Why are you so sure Traktorbass?

    The Rune version includes cd. Excellent.

    Because who doesn't love and revere Cristopher Smith, the former Assistant Secretary for Fossil Energy (US Department of Energy)?

    Krist: Where did you see that? To me it seems to be one or the other.
