presale started @ http://stickman-records.de/:
"pressing comes on 180 gr. red vinyl, housed in a PVC plastic sleeve that contains the band logo as a silk screen and with a CD included.
All orders will be shipped no later than April 15th.
We kindly ask all our Norwegian customers to continue to order the Crispin Clover releases directly from the label in Trondheim."
so no acoustic set for the first time in the context of the current tour?!
I like the new website very much. The design, structure, content, information obtained from the heart of the "psychoverse", open arms… great! A nice place for psychonauts to unite.Quote:two songs side by side on A side
here is the original template for the current tourposter

with a rating as funny as true:
"Ã¼berzeugend" (convincing/ persuasive)
"Gorgeous 180g 2LP edition includes etching, one black and one white LP as well as the CD. And a special feature…" rune promises.
so i ordered mine from rune too cause i was very very curious about the "and a special feature…" and thought: what could it be? inflatable eggplant-zeppelin?
hm, what is it this special feature? what do you think? is it the "hidden track" in the etching on side a or something completely different that i have not discovered yet?
@GDB: if you got yours frome rune, you got a cd, right? so, no further download is needed where you already got the digital audio in high-res wav-files instead of mp3 :wink:
"The Trondheim exception trio adds another masterpiece in folky Progressive Rock to its canon. If you try to objectify the class of a band based on the multitude of their output in a given period in relation to the average quality, Motorpsycho may be the best band in the world. They bring it to 17 regular studio albums plus several EPs in 25 years, without even having once lost the inspiration. This is not the case also for Behind The Sun – the boundaries between folk, progressive rock, indie rock and psychedelic are resolved at the highest level. It actually is impossible, to record such a complex and comprehensive album in just one year, as the band plays on an unearthly technical level, without ever drifting in vain bigotry. Who will be able to integrate a drum solo into a song without sounding pretentious? Well, in Kvaestor you can hear one that consists almost entirely of double bass thunder and cymbals, which completely makes sense in the structure of the song. In any case the tasteful and unobtrusive drumming of nested studied jazz musician Kanneth Kapstad makes indie-pop anthems like Cloudwalker interesting for prog-nerds too, pushes madness in bags and Hell Pt.7: Victim Of Rock in a rarely heard musical sphere. As a peace pole in the Prog Kaleidoscope there are also delicate folk islands such as Ghost or Entropy, which make Behind The Sun also to a lesson in dynamics. There are few albums where you will find favor so quickly and that still remain interesting for so long due to their endless wealth of detail. Further evidence for the opening hypothesis. Have a good flight behind the sun everyone!"
here is the visions review for behind the sun (#252, 03/2014, p.105):
the subscription edition of the current issue includes the haircuts-dvd, in a scaled-down version obviously:

+ ANOTHER UGLY TOUR 1994, alternate cut
+ MAD SUN 1996, acoustic
+ S.T.G. 2000, live at Samfundet, Trondheim
+ PLAN #1 2000, live at Samfundet, Trondheim
for the april-issue visions announces a great mp-special "eine groÃŸe History" occasion of mp's 25th anniversary, "one of the best and most productive prog-bands".Quote:hoping it's an outside producer – as much as i love this band, i'm struggling to enjoy their self-produced albums
I agree with that.
sometimes I already thought "what a pity, so much brilliance is buried in muddy sound." not even steve albini – the lord of pure sound – could tame them.
a steven wilson mix for a motorpsycho album would be the icing on the cake i.m.o.
"hey kim, could you make another ugly cover for our next album, might be an amalgam of child of the future and heavy metal fruit with some catchy hot iconography?"
let's wait for the whole artwork. so far, none was disappointing.
ok, maybe the early ones, rwIV and barracuda.
