    Just back from Burgerweeshuis which is a small but very nice venue. Also, it's in the town centre of Deventer, sorrounded by shops, houses & flats which seemed rather strange to me. But apparently the place is really well isolated so you don't hear much outside.

    They started with another song before Cornucopia:

    Who gave you love (no idea if it's a cover or maybe one first heavy metal fruit...?)

    The setlist I got from the PA-guy is a little bit different from what they actually played. It reads as follows:

    Who gave you love
    -see above-
    LLM
    The Alchemyst (part of the "Suite:..." in Thomas' setlist? Can't remember...)
    -------------
    No evil (not played)
    Mr. Victim (not played)
    YMB
    MM
    -------------
    VS

    All in all, a mind-blowing show! I guess the best I've seen this tour. The only thing that pissed me off was the incredibly chatty audience, at least in the back.
    The guys were absolutely on fire, though, and didn't even seem to be bothered by the talking. Wishing well and BTS were absolutely fantastic, and so were the encores. Bit of a shame they omitted Mr.Victim, would have loved to hear that one. But YMB and Manmower were bloody awesome! The guys had so much fun playing the blues, it was a pleasure just to watch them. VS was a killer, too! I'd thought I'd heard that one often enough (so I was really happy they played TGC earlier this tour), but man! That was one hell of a way to finish this concert! The second bang was the most massive and energetic outburst I've ever witnessed! It's still in my ears...

    Can't wait for their return next spring now. And they're gonna play Schlachthof/HB again, so get your tickets!

    Just got back from Deventer. What an amazing gig! The sound from the beginning was great, bearing in mind that I was right in front of the stage and could hear the sound directly from the source.

    They started the show (before Cornucopia) with a song I had not heard before, maybe a new song, maybe a cover (anybody?) The three from COTF blasted past. The versions of Wishing Well and Manmower were shattering, great jam in LLM. They changed the setlist a lot; they were supposed to play Mr. Victim and No Evil, amongst others. And Diana wasn't planned at all, before ending with a massive VS.

    The mood in the venue was great, amongst the fans and the band; smiles all around. Some fans brought a huge, professionally made banner with "Motorpsycho thanks for 20 years" written on it, which Bent gleefully took with him after the end.

    In all those years of seeing them I have grown a bit weary of saying "Best gig ever", but this one is easily in my top three. Thank you Motorpsycho, thank you thank you thank you!

    Greetings,

    Thomas

    First of all, the concert was great, yes!
    I did remember the first song from Dusseldorf last year ....
    Groove song with a nice guitar riff and cowbell.

    Thomas, that's why I keep going every time I have the chance - every gig feels like it has to be the best ever!

    Two more days for me now, and I thoroughly expect it to be better than Bielefeld, which was one of the best EVER!

    This should be correct. Maybe they quoted from Alchemyst (though I didn't recogise it) but they didn't play the whole song. I think they stretched LLM a lot, which left them pressed for time. In Young Man Blues Kenneth started the second break too soon, Bent shook his head at him, but it was too late and they modified the song accordingly. Snah accidentaly kicked over his wah and Bent nearly lost his footing whilst playing the Roland PK-5 with two feet at the same time. The whole crew - and even Kenneth for two songs - wearing the new "Bent is loud" T-shirts. Great, funny moments.

    I love this band. Does it show?

    Greets,

    Indeed great gig! Wishing Well, first time seeing 'em playing it live. Vocals... well wished them to have been better, but hey, Bent's frustration of that one came out through In The Family and Back to Source. Back on track from that, the rest of the show was a mammoth crushing every ice-plate.
    Any recording made during this show?

    PS: I want that 'BentIsLoud' shirt.

    Coolest and best gig of Motorpsycho I've seen in years!

    For me it was one of those shows that may look good on paper but in reality didn't quite work--lots of energy, definitely, but missing a certain motormagic that makes the difference between a good show and a great show.

    The show started out so promising, really a punchy, thundering 'let's rawk!' vibe. But it's interesting, what Ricky pointed out as an 'incredible' sequence (Kill some day/Wishing well/In the family/Back to source) derailed things for me.

    The vox on KSD, WW and B2S were so bad! Not quirky Bent style bad, or signature/ charming bad, but just plain bad. In the Family, normally not exactly a standout song, was suddenly the star of this foursome; it sounded amazing, perhaps mainly by comparison?

    While sometimes the tension and electricity is beautifully sustained throughout a gig, including during mellower songs (such as Brussels on this tour), in Deventer the duo of Up/Down & Bedroom Eyes brought things down to a confusing drag. The crowd was *way* too spirited to downshift accordingly. I was three-four rows away from the stage, between Snah & Kenneth, and the people around me were going mad, which wasn't distracting during the loud and rocking songs, but during the quieter passages--forget about it. They took that opportunity to holler into each other's faces, triumphantly stack their empty cups and raise them in the air, push off to the bar, reappear sloshing drinks everywhere, etc. Regaining momentum with Ocean seemed like a good plan, but it didn't really work--loud parts muddy (huge problem during B2S) and vox once again very strained.

    LLM was superfast and messy, in a good way, and it would have been brilliant to stick to the original setlist & come back with No Evil and Mr Victim because YMBlues was chaotic, and Manmower--YMB was a choice I could understand given the crowd's spastic energy, but Manmower? No. The way it builds and swirls and fades out makes it feel weird as an encore after a rawk show, especially when paired with something like YMBlues.

    Vortex sounded...dated. Very average rendition. Maybe it needs a bigger, aerier, venue, preferably with a big high ceiling, so it can really soar and flow; the hot & sweaty low-ceilined little Burgerweeshuis seemed to compress it. At least that's how it felt to me. Plus, the highlights were absolutely the newer Kenneth-era material, and thus there was something kind of playbacky about it--we all know how it was a favorite send-off song years ago. That was then, this is now!

    I would have loved to have had Diana as the final song last night. That was yet another fantastic, roaring rendition. Oh well, it was still a great time in Deventer, lovely town, brilliant b&b, yummy Cuban dinner, and of course the fabulous Burgerweeshuis, with its friendly staff, free coatcheck, and cool architecture.

    Plus, it was really sweet when the fans unveiled their banner celebrating the 20th anniversary of a band that may not always successfully pull off their experiments and ambitions but at least they have them

    til next time,

    For me In the Family is one of the finest songs they haver ever done, upstairs/downstairs on the other hand is one boring piece of music.

    Just a short note: Love the town of Deventer, like the club a lot, audience was a bit rough but the sound middlish in front of the mixer pretty good. The set was like a "wishlist come true" for me after stepping off the tour in Bielefeld already; got more than expected and I literally fell apart during Vortex: due to serious grief me and a friend (both of us from Hannover) experienced complete katharsis. helll!! a personal thingh...

    though the setlists and soloing seemed more "fluent" in the earlier shows, I felt from the beginning that they were bringing up some very fine chosen set last night, first cover-tune and then the heartpiece of COTF - "this is motorpsycho and we're already taking the tour to a new direction". Man, the final of YMB, Kenneth playing Keith - greeeeeeeeeaaaat! technically some mistakes but it didn't matter since this was kind of "homeplay" - great idea from the (german) guys to create that banner: are you here?!

    Would have loved to get the "Bent is Loud"-shirt, but after the show it was gone (apperently there were only 15 made for the crew + only *1* for sale - stoopid me that I didn't check that before!)

    Now back to work... and mp-live on the road in 2010.

    Wish you guys (Anders) a nice smoothe final in Copenhagen tonight

    I thought it was a fantastic gig. Last time I saw them was last year in Tivoli, Utrecht, and the sound in that venue sucks so much that it spoiled the gig for me. This was the first time I could actually hear how much of a virtuoso Kapstad is. This was probably the tightest show I've ever seen of them, they were all in absolute top form. It couldn't go wrong to begin with, one of my favourite bands playing just around the corner from where I live, having a 20 year oeuvre to select my favourite songs from, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    I even met Bent in my local supermarket before the gig started, that was pretty bizarre.

    I made a lot of pics, put them online here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/13760265@N07/

    @ Joeri,
    Thanks for the pics!
    Me and my mates are standing prominently at the front of the stage watching our Norwegian friends ripping it up.
    One of the best gigs I saw them play!
    I'll be there when they return in the spring of next year.

    Yes. Listened to parts of it. Not great. Then again, I think I am slightly saturated.
    Will hand it over for some tinkering at some point, then it'll be uploaded as well, I guess. If it passes the quality control.

    sounds a nice set list to me...strange entry but what an ending, Vortex is always the perfect ending for a cool gig.

    Google translate ftw! "The abundant freakiness on drums and guitar or starts to lose its magic.
    You can also exaggerate something natural.
    But that simply belongs to the inappropriate attitude of rock Motor Psycho."

    This was the first time I saw Motorpsycho since 2007. I use to be big fan but these days I guess I’m just remotely interested in the band. Got the last album and liked it alright for its riff-heavy stonerrock sound but didn’t think there were any memorable songs. The older mp albums I still play these days are Timothy’s, Blissard & Angels and Daemons, so it was good to hear some of those songs.

    I thought it was a nice show but definitely not one of those magic nights.
    It had a decent start with some of the newer material. KSD was not bad but Bent should learn to recognize the limitations of his own voice by now and sing this one register lower (like on the record).
    ITF came in a decent rendition and was great to hear; I always loved this track.
    The vocals on Wishing well -an otherwise pretty song- were indeed lacking (severely). Bent must have thought the same because he threw a little tantrum right after ending the song.

    But the band got over it and ended the first set with a good version of the LLM suite, which demonstrated Kenneth’s amazing talents on the drums best. He is an ‘intelligent’ rock drummer with a great feel for dynamics, much like Mitch Mitchell.
    As the show progressed, the crowd was getting more and more rowdy and as long as the band fed them those crazee rawking tunes, the roof went off. When they didn’t though (like during the first parts of Manmower and Vortex), the screams and cheering were still going on. But this didn't bother me in the way it would have ten years ago, it was actually kind of amusing, I thought.

    During the whole show I tried different spots and never really found a place where the sound balance was satisfying. The drums were buried beneath the guitar and bass which took a lot of the drive away. And the sometimes less than average vocals were totally dry most the time and tended to stuck out like a sore thumb. Some over-the-top creativity on the soundman’s part with reverb, delays & phasing effects could have made a huge difference.

    All in all a fun night. Good enough to make me wanna see them again next time in May.

    @elNibi: Right. Cut the video before Bent opens his mouth. Video becomes much better then.
    He was off, so leave it out. Just sayin' man.
