In a program on Norwegian radio back in the mid-90s, Norwegian radio legend Harald Are Lund talked about the music that had influenced Motorpsycho. He mentioned the band Mountain, and said that the MP song "Mountain" was inspired by a song by Mountain. He played that song, and you could hear his point. The two songs were not identical, far from it, but there were some similarities.
A few years later, on an impulse in a record shop, I bought a Mountain collection, Over The Top. I managed to get through the 34 songs a couple of times, but couldn't figure out if any of these songs had influenced "Mountain". I haven't listened to it since, my main recollection is that even if the music was ok, the vocals were just horrible. Almost painful.
Wanting to get the bottom of said riddle, I e-mailed Harald Are Lund, to find out more. He replied that he remembered the program, and that there indeed was one Mountain song that had inspired "Mountain", but he couldn't recall what the song was called. So there you are – a mystery unsolved.
Maybe Alex’s reply has given you the help you need, but you’ll find what you need here:
This is not confirmed, but I recently heard a rumour that Roger Whittaker would close next year’s ÃƒËœya festival, performing his 1978 classic “The Roger Whittaker Christmas Album”.
The Monster re-entered the Norwegian charts at number 7, which must be a lot higher than in 1994.
Here’s the opening of the concert, including Bent’s very, very short version of The one that went away:
The kids in the foreground are from svartlamon kindergarten, according to an article in today’s Adressa.
At ÃƒÂ¸ya now, four hours to go.
It was reviewed in Dagbladet today (Tuesday), 6 out of 6. The review is not available on their web page, at least not yet.

So why didn’t they do a cover of Sgt. Pepper?
Bummer. I’m off to Bergen tonight, and am (maybe) flying to Trondheim tomorrow morning. I guess it gives me a dilemma if the ban is lifted – should I stay or should I go?
One song missing: Didn’t they play four songs during their first encores?
they did not play Bedroom Eyes.
Both Taifun and Sinful were amongst the highlights last night, as was the opening first minutes of Year Zero.
Another highlight appeared during the quiet part of TGC, when Bent’s bass is the only instrument. Several in the crowd were shouting – maybe requests, maybe something else, and Kenneth slowly put his finger to his lips, telling the audience to shut up, in a very polite and almost un-noticable way. Others in the crowd urged the shouters to shut up, which they eventually did.
