          ZomZom82 “…together they just form a sort of grey mass of behemoths which in comparison to the earlier monsters sounds cramped, overwritten, an yes … a bit wanky.”

          To me this is pretty accurate description of 85-90% of MPs output the last 20+ years. After the second round of Tussler-gigs in 2003(?) it went downhill and with only the occasional glimpse of brilliance. The Tower sounded fresh when it was released. I’ved liked some of the gigs and records, but it’s har to pinpoint highlights. From a broad perspective, most of the last 20 years have sounded the same. Very little variation in quality, mood and energy. Grey sameness indeed. Not all bad, but very few songs or albums or tours stand out for me.

            Yes, too late. I've already traded my tickets for Tuesday.

              Go to California was on the list, but was crossed out in favour of The tower. Hate GOT (the start of the downfall), but at that point it would have been a nice break from all The Tower songs.

                The venue ran out of beer!

                Besides that a great gig. The setlist a little too heavy on the heavy Tower stuff, but with some really nice songs from the golden era.

                Good sound too. Less bass, more vocals (really high in the mix)and a lot of Snah and Lars.

                      That August 2003 Tussler gig at Rockefeller is one of the best MP gigs I've seen. 3 1/2 hours long if I remeber correctly. Loads of covers, good times and great gusts. The band was expanded too. Martin Hagfors, anyone else remember who else?

                      Perfect Roadwork release.

                      Was the SoWhat-gig the same year?

                        New tour date:

                        26.September Kolbotn, Kolben Kulturhus.

                        SMALL VENUE. Looked like 130 -140 seats from the seating chart. Tickets went on sale on Tuesday I think. Still tickets left this morning. 15 minute train ride from Oslo.

                          Answered 30-34, but I'm not quite sure. Think I counted around ten years ago and it was around 30. Thinking about it know I might have just passed 35.

                          First one was in April 99.

                            Yeah, Thomas had an annoying rattling in his snare drum.

                              Regarding the 20min intermission after Un Chien: I loved it, but I degree that Manmower suffered from it. They need tonplay anlonger song AS 1st song after the break. Starting with Inteepid Explorer and them Manmover would have breen better.

                              And regarding the show being an all out attack fest: I partially agree (The Tower songs are HEAVY) and after Geb every MP show I've seen have been like that – at least the Rockefeller + varous Østlandet-gigs. I didn't see any of the Blissard-gigs with Reine Fisk which probably was a big mistake.

                              (I keep forgetting that TM-show at Øya which made me cry and the great Demon Box thing at Høvikodden).

                              Don't think I'll bother with another Rockefeller show unless they do a Trust Us redux tour or something.

                              I sat dead center on the 4th row and didn't hear any of that Bent-at-Rockefeller-bassrumble that drownes all nuances.

                                Loved heaRING Manmover and Upstairs/Downstaira fleshed out. Missed another guitarist, especially on Lacuna where Snah played his solo (poorly?) over the quiet parts. Best thing about this show was the seated venue. Very very quiet audience (Saturday night??) and a room + PA which lends itself to lower volumes. The low volume dynamics and details of the sound was miles and miles better than anything I've heard at an MP-show before. They need to come back and explore/take advantage of this again! And for the umptenth time I was boken away by the tightness and TRØKK from the three guys on stage (and the stummende is new!!)

                                  Context: seen 35 MP gigs. Not so many in the past 10 years. I like parts of LLM, HBM and The Tower is still good two weeks in. Except the Opera shows and Tussler gigs, it's the best I've seen in 15 years. ( regarding HBM: Just Bent on keys +Maybe Thomas?)

                                  Liked the setlist. Would of course have liked more oldies, but I knew what to Expert. Loved the kamming middel of Un Chien – completely New to me. Great Heartattack Mac which made me want to hear Black to Comm. A shame they disn't play ASFE which is growing from a decent single to a great song.
