      Did anybody attend this? Yesterday in Skien, Snah and Bent talked about music and life, and apparently brought along their accoustic guitars.

          I told my friend that I had published his thoughts here, and he is now unstoppable:

          He has changed his mind – he thinks the song with the jam was Whip That Ghost (which makes sense), Both Ryan and Fiske had great (and very different) solos.

          His hearing isn’t too good, he’s deaf in one ear. Still, the sound seemed to loud, a view that was shared with others he talked to post-show. He couldn’t make out the lyrics at all.

            A friend from the area says that it was not a full house, probably three quarters full. It was a hall with seats, so, with the exception of a woman in front of him who danced while seated in her seat :wacko: , nobody danced. He saw many strangers, and guesses that many in the audience had come from afar, including other countries.

            The band was in good mood, even if they only played one encore. My friend is not a diehard Psychonaut, and does not know all the song titles, but says that one of the Yay!-songs had a longish jam/improvisational part.

            About Oluf, he says that he noticed his stiff upper arms. He felt that Oluf did what he should, but adds (with a smiley) that his favourite drummer is Ralph Molina.

              A fine concert, with several glorious moments, but still: I’m not gonna go all “Tomas forever, Ringo never!”, but there was something missing last night. Looking at the setlist, they played nothing from the Kapstad era and only two songs from the Järmyr years. It may be a coincidence, but I felt that they picked songs that were more suited to the drummer at hand. No long songs, no long and far out jams, and hardly any song that didn’t follow a 4/4-beat.

              Still, plenty of highlights. The accoustic set was very fine; I especially enjoyed “Mad Sun”. Also, before the final accoustic song, somebody shouted “She Used To Be A Twin”. Bent looked almost surprised, and answered “Good call! We’ve forgotten that one. Maybe next time”. Hopefully it will re-surface.

              Also, it is always nice to hear old favourites from the 90s. The two encores from Demon Box brings back memories for an oldtimer like myself.

              They opened with “Cold and Bored”. I had thin hopes that they would make this the first Motorpsycho-concert where the opening and closing songs rhymed. Unfortunately, no “Golden Gore” appeared.

                It seems as if Motorpsycho played an accoustic set in Trondheim yesterday, at the Eat The Rich-festival. Just Snah and Bent. Several short films on Instagram (and possibly elsewhere). Anybody there?

                    Bergens Tidende gives the show 4/6. The review opens with the statement “There’s no point trying to understand this show”.

                      Yeah, a nice show, but it’s not the same without a drummer. The dancer was fun. They ended with Sister Ray; the only song with vocals.

                            Norwegian only, I presume.

                              Setlists.fm also lists The Waning between The Cuckoo and Rock Bottom.

                                @paolinogrande: “What a band!” – I used the exact same phrase when texting a friend after the concert. One of the most enjoyable MP-shows I’ve been to in a couple of years. The sound was good, the mood was good, and their choice of songs was excellent. I tend to enjoy it when they offer something from the early 90s, and to get both Mountain and PLan#1 was a treat.

                                I was standing by the mixing board, behind someone who listed all the songs played on his phone. Was this you, GBD, seeing that you posted the setlist so soon after the show finished?

                                There is a slightly longer review on my blog, in case anybody feels like practicing their Norwegian: https://kulturguffen.blogspot.com/2022/10/motorpsycho-union-scene-drammen-14102022.html

                                  That’s OK – ticket gone.
