For me, this was the song where Bent's heavy-as-fuck bass-sound really worked to its advantage imho. Together with Snah's autumn 2002 midjam riff, it became a really trance-inducing number. But I can understand that feeling didn't come quite across on the Youtube-clip…
And besides, these are the kind of re-interpretations MP have become famous for, no? Taking an innocent piano-ballad and stretching it out to a 15 minute drone-monster, that's like classic MP there.
Anyway, good luck to you guys/girls seeing them in Bergen/Stord later this weekMarch 9, 2011 at 14:27 #19299Quote:I for one wouldn't mind a torrent with all the videos from this show – perhaps joined together into a home-made, multi-camera production.
That would be nice. We'll see what other footage pops up, but I'm at least hoping for a better sound source.Quote:It must have been one long moment of baffled-excitement for the beginning of "Close your Eyes", when you were not aware what they're doing there – don't we love it so much when they're doing this?!
Exactly! At first I thought that maybe it was a rework of "Upstairs-Downstairs".Quote:I must admit "Close your eyes" didn't really blow me away. Pretty doomy, yes, but not a towering psychedelic highlight — at least not on YouTube (cannot be compared to live anway).
It certainly doesn't pack the same punch on video. The sound just doesn't do it justice. Thought of bringing a Zoom as well, but figured it would be too much hassle. And why, oh why doesn't NRK record concerts at Rockefeller anymore?March 9, 2011 at 14:29 #19300March 9, 2011 at 15:36 #19301otherdemonParticipant
Yeah, I also thought that he said it was called "On A Plate". And according to your video, that's the title…
According to Dampsaba, the boys played a song called On A Plate 4 times in 1991. So it would be hilarious if they resurrected that old song (even though nobody has heard/or remembers the original)March 9, 2011 at 17:50 #19302
Right, when playing in TÃƒÂ¸nsberg Bent said before they played Leslie's Vest that , this is a song we started on in 91 and rediscovered and finished in 2001.
He also mentioned that it had another title and that could very well be "On A Plate".March 9, 2011 at 18:40 #19303TAFParticipant
Excellent video again! But… I'm a bit confused. Surely this song (On a Plate) is the same as the "Du du du du" thing from the London gig and NOT Leslie's Vest?
And the other title for Leslie's Vest, could it possibly be Neanderthal?March 9, 2011 at 20:31 #19304Quote:Right, when playing in TÃƒÂ¸nsberg Bent said before they played Leslie's Vest that , this is a song we started on in 91 and rediscovered and finished in 2001.

Really interesting info there, but that's also just about the only thing that makes sense in this puzzle. Because…Quote:Surely this song (On a Plate) is the same as the "Du du du du" thing from the London gig and NOT Leslie's Vest?
Well… Yes, but we're going from Bent's setlist here, which clearly states "Leslie's Vest" as the second song. Maybe they're trying to confuse us on purpose?March 9, 2011 at 20:39 #19305Un.Chien.d.EspaceParticipant
just compare the london bootleg with this one…i would but i can't right nowMarch 9, 2011 at 21:42 #19306HyenaParticipant
They clearly changed Du du du du to Leslie's Vest, and Leslie's Vest to Neanderthal for some reason. Maybe just for the hell of it…March 10, 2011 at 02:49 #19307RuneParticipant
Fantastic version of Close Your Eyes!! Thank you very much for filming and sharing.
Love it!March 10, 2011 at 08:26 #19308boomer former helmParticipant

Any chance you can post your version of "Neanderthal" too, Devotional? Liked that song a lot!March 11, 2011 at 15:25 #19311TAFParticipant
Yeah, Neanderthal would be a treat!March 11, 2011 at 19:26 #19312TomcatParticipant
Devotional, did you already try to grab audios of your camera? Just had one of your clips through my TV and pretty much liked the good sound: astounding quality!
