      Together with The Other Anders I am going to Trondheim this week to attend the MP gig! We’ll stay from Thursday to Sunday. Ever since becoming a MP fan in the Nineties I had nurtured the dream of making a pilgrimage to the band’s home-turf. I realize the best time for this kind of endeavour would have been the 30-years-anniversary celebrations with the dedicated Rockheim exhibition, the “Demon box”-shows and whatnot. But that was then and I am going now in the year 2023, 27 years into my journey as MP fan and that is fine. Better late than never. That said, I been to Norway once before, 20 years ago, in 2003, to see four Tussler gigs in Oslo. That was great and I still cherish those memories. But Trondheim is of course something else!

      So my question concerns MP-related sites/places to see: What sites should I visit to get a taste of the MP-history, even if those might by only distant echoes from the past?

      I am interested in places like venues, studios, student houses, rehearsal rooms, iconic sites, as well as sites where famous pictures were taken, music videos were shot, cover pictures were staged, band members lived, worked, studied or rehearsed, demo cassettes were dubbed, instore shows were played, legendary gigs took place or similiar things.

      Is the bunker “Dora” still around and can I look at it from the outside?
      What is left of Svartlamon and how can I grasp a tiny essence of it?
      Does the Rockheim exhibition feature MP-releated items?
      Does Samfundet still exist?

      They should really have a walking tour “MP’s Trondheim”, but I guess they don’t ;-)

      I am grateful for any input locals might have.

      Really looking forward to this trip and the gig :-)

      Of course we’ll also do the regular sights, but those are well covered.

      Thanks!!!

        Uffa, Samfundet (Knaus and Storsalen) still exist and is worth a visit. The famous bike ride around Svartlamon is more or less identical to this day.

        Is Brygga studio present?

          Go to EC Dahls Bryggeri & Pub and grab a few S.T.Gs :)

            Everything is still there, including Brygga studio.
            Bushman’s Revenge are playing at Bar Moskus (aka The Best Scene in Town) on Friday and absolutely mandatory.

              I was in Trondheim this summer, from the Netherlands – exited to be close to the MP history. Dora is massive and still around, how could it not be :) and Svartlamon just across the road. Not exactly a pilgrimage, but it felt warm at heart

                I’m almost surprised nobody came up with that idea before. Trondheim is on my wishlist too. One of these years…

                  Re: a walking tour, a Wearing Yr Smell loop for definite.

                      I know of a couple of houses where Snah and Geb used to live (not at Svartlamon), if that’s of interest?

                      I wouldn’t mind meeting up and showing you those, they’re in walking distance from the central part of town. Would be nice to meet you anyway, I’m sure you remember we used to email and trade cds and such quite a bit back in the day :)

                      Like others have said, you won’t be able to miss Svartlamon and Dora. Verkstedhallen is located at Svartlamon as well.

                      At Svartlamon there’s of course also Gregus gate 10, the house where Motorpsycho Management has always had their office. I assume they still do?

                      There’s also Cafe 3B. It’s probably years since I was there last, and it’s changed quite a bit from how it was in the 90s, but of interest is the fact that the very first Tussler gig was played there, if I’m not mistaken. It was a very nice place back in the day, I used to attend a weekly music quiz there, and for a while Bent attended it too.

                          Thanks everyone for your input!

                          Rolf, it would be wonderful to catch up :-) Could you drop me a mail at [removed] so we can figure out how to hook up?

                          See you!
