I also think that something like archive.org would be great. Especially when there is a possibility to rank the recordings by e.g. the sound quality. The qulity of the older recordings varies from barely listenable to just great. The communitiy could help to figure out the outstanding ones.
My own collection (big but not complete) is about 320 GB already, so there is some storage space required.
Does anybody know how much something like that would cost and if there would be any legal issues to be considered?June 1, 2022 at 15:15 in reply to: Motorpsycho DB #36728
A few remarks:
Yes, sometimes it can be a little bit tricky to find consistent song titles (see e.g. Überpilgrim or Victims Of Rock vs. Hell pt. 7 or Nothing To Say with the Mountain Jam). We had some discussions about these when we set up the DB. But your input is of course very welcome. Überpilgrim just needs some cleaning up I guess and we could rename Victim Of Rock –> Hell pt. VII / Victim Of Rock. But there will still be some oddities.
I also think that N.O.X. should be treated as one song now that MP has always played all the parts. I guess we will change that. In the beginning this was of course not foreseeable.
Tussler: I don't know. We just have no data field "artist" and Tussler is not MP. We can add the gigs and add a remark like "MP as TITS" but I am not sure. Other opinions?
And please tell us whenever there are recordings we did not know of. These are easy to add. Somebody has done this already.
General remark: It is very nice to see that you guys are interested in and actually using the DB. That really was a lot of work (kudos especially to Blashyrkh for the initiative and the technical realisation!) and this is a real heads up! As Blashyrkh said before, any feedback is welcome and will be considered.June 1, 2022 at 08:25 in reply to: Motorpsycho DB #36719
@cloudhawker: yep. DB has been updated. Thanks!May 31, 2022 at 15:38 in reply to: Motorpsycho DB #36714
@mefisto: Whoops, must have slipped through. I have added Sandnes to the DB. Please check if it looks ok. Thank you!May 25, 2022 at 21:45 in reply to: Motorpsycho live 2022 #39358

I think we should look at these verses in connection with the lyrics of s'Numbness.
I dont't completely get what the song is about (what is this feeling, this urge?) but it seems to me that it deals with the doubts and worries that can occur within an otherwise fine and loving relationship. Bad feelings that might come (and go) from time to time.
So even if the quotes have a christian background, they could also com from your Grandma telling you that you should not worry too much about that but instead believe in the relationship and the love you feel and to not give it up too early.
Something like that. Maybe an overinterpretation?
Put that together with Snah's German mother, maybe he recalled this quote somewhere from his childhood memories?
Thank you very much suntripper, punknotyet and nicoot for your additional input. Highly appreciated!
Something slightly different (thanks to Katharina Falck from radioeins for playing music like this):
Mdou Moctar from Niger. This music runs under the label Touareg Blues and even if I am not that much into world music, this guy totally gets me. Pretty psychedelic. The guitar!!! Check out the album Afrique Victime.December 17, 2021 at 12:49 in reply to: Byscenen, TRD, 4. desember #39532
Blashyrkh, I have checked the database and the recordings I have. The Wheel has been played at Forum Enger three times, once in '94 and two times in '95. I only have the recording from '94 where the wheel fades out after about 11 minutes. No recordings from '95 available afaik.December 16, 2021 at 07:52 in reply to: Motorpsycho Tribute Series #39452
I wonder if buying the box set will also include access to the digital files, on CD or for download. I would find it frustrating if I had to pay extra for these.November 25, 2021 at 16:49 in reply to: Blitz November 24th #39419

To see how many times a song was played live check out e.g. the mpdb.space database:
MMS has been played on 23 gigs, the last time 2017 in Trondheim.March 19, 2021 at 09:57 in reply to: Kingdom of Oblivion – reviews #38592
Just to add 2 more cents: apart from the obvious fact that MP have an enormous backlog of those "products of youth" we can all enjoy over and over again, there are lots of other great bands on this planet. As supernaut and JERO have pointed out, MP have developed over the years, they have become older and improved a lot as musicians. I still love to follow them on their way, even if some of the last albums don't touch me as much as the first ones did. They are still the best live band I can imagine. If you are missing the catchiness, heaviness or energy of the old MP you will find great, talented young bands out there, maybe the next MP are already on their way. Let us go and find them.
And btw after reading those first reviews I expect Kingdom Of Oblivion to be a chtchier and more accessible album than the ones from the Gullvag trilogy. That would be fine for me.March 10, 2021 at 09:54 in reply to: Short interview with Bent for laut.de #38331
I like to look at it from a different perspective. This all is not about giving privileges to those who are vaccinated. It is about the restrictions that are imposed on those who are in danger of getting infected with the disease or spreading the disease. At the moment this includes all of us. If (and only if) it turns out that those who are vaccinated have a significantly low risk of getting infected or to put others in danger, then the restrictions cannot be justified anymore and so there is no reason to forbid these people to have a normal life including going to concerts. And that is why such a vaccination passport can make sense.
@the conscience and suntripper:
This forum is definitely not the place to discuss any offside conspiracy theories. If you are completely upset about what Bent said in this interview then go and follow artists you can agree with. For Germany I can recommend Xavier Naidoo or Michael Wendler, they are on your side. But please stop whining around here.
