      @supernaut: I bet you have lots of thoughts around it that you could share :)

      @mark de klerk: Completely agree. Who is the guide (for you)?

      I would guess MP has been searching for meaning through psychedelics, and alot of people seem to find comfort and balance through the unifying experiences provided therein. Others through religion. I can’t see this in MP, what with Ãœberwagner and Walking with J for example.

      At any rate, something abviously needs to kick western culture onto the right track again.. Leave the greedy selfish hands of capitalist behind, give science and reason a chance to guide the masses instead of, well, you know. Fairy tales.

      edit: If any of you have read Star Maker by Olaf Stapledon, he talks alot about the spiritual crisis that seem to haunt technologically advancing societies. I see a parallell here. Think Bent is into sci-fi?

        @Rolf: Whats the story of the gong-intro on The Nerve Tattoo? I haven’ heart that one :)

        I definitely agree with pretentiousness not necessarily being a bad thing; great works of art have come out of pretentious minds. Someone has to have the vision and bigger perspective on music and art, and try to make something fresh and thought provoking as opposed to all the mindless crap that is lauded as mankinds greatest achievement every day in mainstream media..

        Anyway, if any of you have read Siddhartha, Bent is effectively putting himself in the role of the ferryman; enlightened, modest, complete and in balance, but with a twist of youthful energy and an urge to actually change something.

                Think I started with Phanerothyme actually, then Demon Box, BH/BC, Blissard. Last one I got bought was LLM, naturally. Can’t remember them all, as I trawled through a lot of second hand shops to get my (almost) complete catalogue over a period of a handful years.

                edit: First song I heard was Waiting for the One. A girl I knew played Demon Box for me on a long bus trip.. Then Nothing to say, Feedtime etc. I was amazed by the variation of styles on the album. Fell in love with Plan #1 instantly. Never looked back.

                I Was even more amazed by the variation in the rest of the back catalogue as I delved deeper into their discography..

                    Of course, supernaut, I agree. like I said, I chose this song because its pretty simple and straight forward, to get the ball rolling if you will :)

                      @Rolf: I agree with that, Nothing to say is definately critical of the whole establishment and mainstream society, as are alot of Sæthers lyrics.

                      I had also thought about how the lyrics are a bit pretentious, unless he meant it as sarcasm. But I think he has a lot to say, so I guess a little pretentiousness is allowed. Where would psychedelic/progressive music be without it?

                      Come on people, chime in! :)

                        @mark de klerk: After a quick wikipedia-read, he seems interesting, I will check him out.

                            I guess it will grow on me, but the colour needs to change, imho :)

                            The idea about reforming the website sounds good. More user-generated content, more frequent updates.

                            edit: Also like the possibility for avatars.
