Granny takes a trip
Song for a bro
> Hogwash > Spin x 3 > Hogwash
Mountain (it was massive)
On a plate (was a request song)
Happy birthday Reine
May Blitz – For Mad Men Only (Reine sang it)
What an evening ! A superb setlist.
And what a strange location. It felt like the local school gym (but with a bar).Somewhere in the middle of nowhere in a small village.
It seemed that there were a lot locals attending the show. There werenâ€™t a lot of people. I guess 100 – 150 max.
Fun fact: the girls from Hedvig Mollestad Trio were standing in front of us. They are doing a show tomorrow in the Sojo in Leuven, Belgium.October 5, 2019 at 00:29 #36149supernautParticipantQuote:New song (Reine sang it)
you can't just put that here with no further explanations!?!
how was it? you sure it's a new song or maybe a cover of sorts?October 5, 2019 at 01:39 #36150
The song with Reine on vocals was a cover. I didn't get the name of the band, however.
I thought Bent said they were British-Canadian. (The writing on the setlist is quite sloppy, but i think it says "4 mad men"). Anyway, bernie was there, so he probably taped it.
Hey Jane was on the setlist right after No Evil, but they didn't play it, they skipped the first encore ('jig is up') as well. Fools Gold is not written on the setlist.
The band was on stage from about ten past eight until eleven o'clock sharp.
I thought both Hogwash and Mountain were awesome.October 5, 2019 at 01:54 #36151TomcatParticipant

Wow. Belgium strikes again.October 5, 2019 at 07:38 #36154
May Blitz – For Mad Men Only!
Wow, brilliant cover song!
It's a pity this will probably be only a birthday "una tantum"!October 5, 2019 at 13:06 #36155
I put up a piece of May Blitz as a video snippet on Instagram. You find me there as @thowelsch
As always Belgium kept the promises. I love to follow the band here and no matter how strange a place seems it will always be special. Huge venue, which you never expect by looking at it from the outside and only few people. I was able to congratulate Reine before the show. Also learned a lot by talking to Bernie, who taped the concert. Thanks for letting me know more about the sound specifications on MP shows.
Highlights were the noisy, jazzy and finally smooth jam in Manmower and the extended version of Song for a Bro. You guys would have loved that! The one hour lasting flow starting with Psychotzar going into Hogwash, leading into a very dark version of Spin (very special) back into Hogwash and without a stop into incredible Mountain was the best I heard for a long time!
I love this bandOctober 5, 2019 at 18:36 #36156supernautParticipant
haha May Blitz, awesome.October 5, 2019 at 20:23 #36157JEROParticipant
Thanks for the link to May Blitz, a discovery for me, one of those bands of the proto hardrock era MP seems to love so much, and getting to know so much interesting (vintage) rockbands is one of the great extra's you get by getting deeply into MP! Rock history class by professor's Bent & Snah (since 1989) ! This Belgium gig seems to have been special indeed, looking forward to some Bernie clips! What is it that makes their gigs in Belgium so special? The locations, the crowds, the weather?

Bent broke a string on his bass(!) five minutes into No Evil. Therefore they skipped it ðŸ˜October 6, 2019 at 11:25 #36159ffbernieParticipant

So Morten didn't manage to replace the string while he played this time?October 6, 2019 at 13:04 #36161October 6, 2019 at 18:33 #36162Rats NestParticipantQuote:So Morten didn't manage to replace the string while he played this time?
Nope. Bent didnâ€™t change bass during No Evil.
