Gusse"The sound: Quite OK, but as always (at least in Rockefeller), Bents bass rumble swallows a lot of Snah details. In my opinion, I'd liked to have Snah slightly louder or to hear them in a different venue, like Sentrum Scene."
I wasn't there yesterday, but bass rumble and resonanaces is always a usually at Rockefeller. And more so With Motorpsycho (due to Bents volume and presence) than most bands. Less of a problem at Sentrum Scene. And they could easily sell out a 1600 capacity venue as well. The seated gallery would bring another couple of hundred people who've stopped going to MP shows.April 4, 2016 at 09:19 #29142supernautParticipant
thanks a lot for those videos! Feedtime is still so amazing.
(though I try to restrain from watching the whole Here Be Monsters due to spoiler reasons before I see it live :geek: )April 4, 2016 at 11:58 #29143Quote:Seems a very strange thing to limit the 12" at only 100 copies to a show that was sold out with 1300 audience, when the show is (almost) the only place to get a hold of it. They ask people to not pay silly money on ebay, but dont follow up to make it aviable at least to everyone attending the concert. I am a little bit pissed off, to be honest.
If everybody who attended the show at Rockefeller bought a copy the HBM2 release it would be sold out already. That wouldn't be fair, since it was only the second show of the tour. What about the fans at the other shows then?
A lot of the people in the merch table line at Rockefeller only bought t-shirts while HBM2 was still available. And quite a few people who go to MP shows do not buy records at all or they don't buy vinyl (even if there's a cd included). So everybody weren't there to get HBM2.
I was lucky enough to get a copy of HBM2 (plus cap, cup and buttons) after standing in line for half an hour. The band went on stage one minute after I left the merch table.April 4, 2016 at 15:52 #29144
There's a copy of HBM2 for sale on Discogs for EUR 500! F#%@ing hell! And of course it's a new seller… Good luck!April 4, 2016 at 16:40 #29145pfnueselParticipant

Not surprised at all. But these limited edition thingies seem to become huge investment opportunities
nowadays. And Norwegians still have way too much money for their own good :lol:
Regarding the sound: I actually feel the opposite. I always get better sound @ Rockefeller than Sentrum Scene. The seated area @ SS is of course nice (for us guys getting older), but downstairs I rarely get good sound…
I stood at the top a bit to the right. And the sound was great (the only thing I didn't hear too well was Bent's mellotron). But I heard every single Snah note! And I can confirm he was indeed on fire :twisted:April 4, 2016 at 21:37 #29148jtrParticipant
Aaout those limited and deluxe editions – thats something that annoyed me about Motorpsycho for a long time now. I love their music and I personally just wanna *hear* it. I dont think thats too much to ask – it doesnt have to come in fancy packaging (besides, apart from liner notes, nothing about their artwork was ever exciting to me anyway, I never liked Kims style), I dont care whether its vinyl, CD or download (Im no audiophile, I cant hear a difference – grats to all who can).
Songs dont get more special if a lot of potential listeners are shut out from hearing them. If you limit parts of your output from a greater audience, you gain absolutely nothing. You just lose people potentially enjoying your music.
All those editions cause is – like many pointed out – overpriced reselling and pissed off listeners, admirers and fans.April 4, 2016 at 23:13 #29149stereosofaParticipantApril 5, 2016 at 07:13 #29150
Yes, of course. I will post some photos later today.
Although I am a collector and like limited/special/deluxe/art editions a lot, I still agree that it's cool to make the music available to as many fans as possible. So I wouldn't feel cheated in any way if MP decides to make more copies of HBM2. Standard CD releases of HBM2 and The Motorpnakotic Fragments would be nice. And perhaps it's time to do a CD release of Child Of The Future? I'm sure they would sell quite well. Download/streaming versions would also be ok.April 5, 2016 at 10:17 #29151
