      Marius Lien is currently working on a book om The Death Defying Unicorn. The book will be published in the series “Norske Albumklassikere” (Classic Albums from Norway) on Falck Forlag – at least it will be published if they can fund it.

      One two – you know what to do: https://www.bidra.no/prosjekt/bok-motorpsychostorl%C3%B8kkentddu-marius-lien/aa05b9c4-7988-4e07-b9c9-0986e7b0a64d

        Cool! But quite important to me and possibly other non-Norwegians: will this book be in English or Norwegian?

          Norwegian only, I presume.

            Hopefully the book will be better than the album…

                I asked the publisher Falck forlag about a possible English version/translation. Sounded like it might very well be a possibility further down the line, but one thing at the time. I guess they have to fund & write the Norwegian original first…!

                  Good that you’ve done that! I’d love to read a book about the Unicorn, but only in english.

                    @suntripper: No, I am not kidding, as I really don’t like the Unicorn album much. Still a book would be interesting, at least that is my hope

                        @mefisto: haha, fair enough. Let’s agree to disagree then.

                          Christer Falck says on facebook that the aim is to also print an English version of the book so be prepared to pay up.

                          And Motorpsycho say on Instagram that they can’t wait to find out what they were on about.

                          …and Snah told me – after the Hedvig Mollestad Trio gig a few weeks ago – that they were all very exited about being able to do some of the Unicorn stuff again with Ståle Storløkken at Orange Factory. I wouldn’t be very surprised if they do it again some day. (Ståle is a very rare and sought after resource).

                            @mefisto: That’s a shame. I’m sure you given it every chance. I think it’s one of the best things they’ve done and the notes that came with Supersonic Scientists seemed to indicate they thought it was as close as they’d got to their essence.


                            @ThorEgil
                            : That’s good news about the English version. I’ll be having a copy in that case!

                            First a Blissard book, now a Unicorn book. I only need a LLM book to have my three favourite albums covered!

                                @deusvic: I’m looking at the ‘Rock Family Tree’ type folded insert from the CD which details different incarnations/periods. Motorpsycho #11 made TDDU and, among other things, it says,

                                It is a serious work that is seriously demanding to listen to, but the reward is staggering if one likes anything Motorpsychodelic…..No detour, it is probably the strongest distillation of the Motorpsycho spirit recorded so far.

                                  TDDU is the only album I‘ve immediately loved as a whole after listening to the first two songs. Strange but true.
