I think it is amazing how they keep exploring The Tower, instead of playing the festivals safe with oldies but goodies. Most bands surely would play it safe, as they look upon the festivals as showcases. But this band? Nope. You're always welcome to join the caravan, but this is right where we are, right now. Take it or leave it!
Again, what's not to love?
2 out of 8 songs were oldies (and goodies, I'd argue) = 25% of the setlist.
These oldies took up 50/120 mins = 42% of the playing time.
And as we all know: 42 is the meaning of life. Case closed.July 23, 2018 at 10:18 #33093July 23, 2018 at 12:38 #33094SpacebanditParticipant
@ The Other Anders: 42:02 of Unchaining the space…
There might be something up on Dime later today.
This was a real spaced out show.

I totally want to hear MP with Ola's violin now!
I have to admit, I've played the Unicorn loads, and of course there are a ton of string and horn arrangements on there, but I can't really recall any solo violin features right now. But of course Ola is on there as one of the main collaborators. I should revisit. There's probably a great solo that I've missed all this time.July 23, 2018 at 17:00 #33098
@theotheranders Spot on! 100% (and btw: 5×7+7=42, it all adds up;)
@thevisitant Word! Me too. And still waiting for the great Unicorn DVD. Or why not a NRK TV-special. Theyâ€™re so lazy with their music programming these days. The Molde show? Or of course the Unicorn with capes and all. They must have filmed the opera performance. Still so much in the MP vaults. A demo basement/bunker tapes compilation? And I really hope they will play more with Ola ahead. And Kristoffer of course. Great setup.July 23, 2018 at 20:19 #33099kjessoParticipant
@ everybody: Thanks for the kind words re the blog. The blog's been going since 2009, so there are reports from all MP shows I've witnessed since then. The first of them, from Bergen, October 2009, includes a brief outline of how I've followed Motorpsycho since 1992.
@otheranders: you can claim a bonus point for your positive words about nynorsk. I may be mistaken after all these years, but I have a hunch that we met briefly in the line at Moldejazz in 2002, waiting to be admitted to the Motorpsycho show back then.July 25, 2018 at 22:03 #33100
Traktorbass: when I talked to Snah at Lyse netter he said that they would take the tower stuff as far as they couldJuly 28, 2018 at 18:40 #33101ThorEgilParticipant
Got a few more pictures from the Molde show here.July 28, 2018 at 19:52 #33102Johnny_HeartfieldParticipant
Great pictures, Thor. As usual, I'm tempted to say, but they're special. Like the first one best – and the heavy contrast Bent of No.7 stepping on his pedals right out of the saddle.
Waht do we learn here? Violin players give good motives – it doesn't matter how thick the four strings areJuly 30, 2018 at 23:11 #33103pfnueselParticipant
Thor, if you ever decide to crowdfund a Motorpsycho picture book, I will back you! There also won't be any discussion about the language of the book, so what are you waiting for!?
