Motorpsycho / Hedge Hog
Into The Sun

45 Split per due grandi gruppi norvegesi. Per una volta gli allievi battono i maestri. Che bisogno avevano i Motorpsycho di incidere un (appena) passabile cover dei Grand Funk Railroad? Forse per farci capire che stanno per intraprendere una carriera a la Monster Magnet? Ricordo che lo spartiacque tra i vecchi Monster Magnet ('noise') e i nuovi ('riciclaggio '70') fu proprio una cover dei Grand Funk. Speriamo bene...

Quanto agli Hedge Hog, effettivamente si mostrano superiori. Il brano personale, rozzo e potente. In netta crescita rispetto al passato. Da non perdere.

Motorpsycho / Hedge Hog
Into The Sun

Split single by two great Norwegian bands. This time the disciples beat the masters. Why did Motorpsycho feel compelled to record a (hardly) passable cover of Grand Funk Railroad? Maybe they are trying to tell us that they're beginning a Monster Magnet-style career? I remember that the watershed between the old Monster Magnet ('noise') and the new one ('70's recycling') was a Grand Funk cover. Let's hope for the best...

Regarding Hedge Hog, they prove themselves superior indeed. The song is personal, rough and powerful. A definite growth in comparison to the past. Not to be missed.
