      So how is Ingvald doing? I just saw them with Olaf this year and I’m really curious about how Ingvald fits in with the band. Sounds like he is their drummer for the forseeable future.

        So, anyone up for the task of collecting all their singles in a (set)list here?

        Must say a singleshow is a wild idea, but if that’s what it takes to get them to completely shake up their setlist, I’m not complaining.

          This thread slid a little too fast into the old “everything was better before” vs. artists need to change faux argument, it started out as sharing thoughts about the state of the (live) band right now, that is much more interesting, imo.

            Sorry to be a downer here, but the analysis is, as have been mentioned, all been done in love and enthusiasm for the band. Where else to discuss such matters than on a fanforum? (and it is, of course more interesting to focus on the few negatives than marvel at the positives.. at least after witnessing 50+ gigs from our boys. And their high standard has been set by themselves, soo..)

            I was at the Tromsø gig and had the exact impression as Shakti. I don`t feel like Olafs style is a great fit for the band and he was on deep water an more than one occasion. (Gullible was hard to watch/hear..).

            It reminded me of seeing them with Jacco after Geb left. Servicable, but instead of following along into space, both he and Olaf mainly focused on keeping the beat through the sonic excursions.

            It might have worked better if they had done what I thought they would: Yay!-ify the WHOLE set, and play shorter more accustic stuff from the new album and old songs in a mellower wrapping, but instead they tried to go back to how things were before Thomas left. And that didn’t work with Olaf, imo.

            To end on a positive note: We live in interesting times, and seeing the band reinvent itself in real time is fascinating.

                They must be the most reliably productive band in the world. It's starting to get silly (but I'm not complaining!)

                  Ah, thanks. I corrected it.

                      You sound like you’re sure about the Pratchett connection, @kjellepelle? Very cool, if that is the case. I’m a huge Pratchett fan myself, and it’s no surprise if Bent is a fan. They seem to share a kind of «outside looking in»-mentality towards society/the world, both with lots of passion, morality and humor.

                      That’s it, I’m wearing my «Unseen University» shirt to the Berlin gig next week!

                        They are playing Driv in Tromsø, the second day of may.

                          Aaahh.. It was on the original LP release. 20 years as a fan, and I never knew that.. (Untrue fan-alert!)

                              Hvorfor ikke bare ikke ordlegge seg så kronglete når man ikke klarer å stokke sine egne ikke'er, ikke sant?

                              Or maybe they just don't have any faith in our old boys..

                                OK, so lets see if I understand this whole fundingbusiness correct:

                                If I don't back this thing within the next four days, I won't be able to get my hands on the books/cd's/bluray any other way (except 2. hand) afterwards?

                                  I hope the Oslo-gig is as The Four Musketeers, not just the Three. Anybody know?
