Yeah, sungravy! But what’s “alcoholist”?November 4, 2009 at 07:19 #14153
sounds very good to me! 577, superstooge, hogwash, watersound.. thanks!November 4, 2009 at 07:45 #14154otherdemonParticipantQuote:Yeah, sungravy! But what’s “alcoholist”?
My guess is that it’s The Alchemyst :lol:
And wow, if they actually played Sungravy, then that’s the first time ever. They
never played it live before according to Dampsaba.November 4, 2009 at 08:46 #14155
Very nice, until the Hogwash/U Lied combo…leave that at the Dutch border please…
(perfect jaded green, that’s me)
Have fun tonight & see you tomorrow!November 4, 2009 at 08:55 #14156boomer former helmParticipant
wow it was such a great show, and much much more intense than berlin. the “spaceship-factor” was very high. it seems to me that they try a lot of spaced out sound walls and quiet but very trippy parts. maybe it has something to do with their space-opera which they recorded earlier that year? really looking forward that, i love it, it takes me far out, even i did not smoke yesterday…
to me the hogwash and u lied part was great. perfect songs to rave the audience and let everybody sream for another encore. great.
sound: in the beginning it was hard to hear what snah does and i feared it will be again such a dull sound as berlin, but from sungravy (very very nice btw.!! thanks mp for that surprise) onwards it got better and better (and louder and louder, but i like it that way).
overall feeling was great and they are in such a spaced-out mood i can not find words to describe it.
see you in haarlem.November 4, 2009 at 10:20 #14157November 4, 2009 at 10:21 #14158fillmoreParticipant
Spacy show with much deeper jams than Berlin! Particularly the last 4 songs of the main set were a seguefest with a very inspired Snah. The jams inside “Diana” and “Cornucopia” went to unexplored places and the band totally deconstructed the songs. Lots of heavy wah-wah jamming before taking it down to the most quietest and having Kenneth play a solo. Between “KDH” and “Alchemyst” Snah played the same burning free form space he had used in Berlin to intro “Cornucopia”! Great bluesy “Superstooge” too. The setlist said “You lied” after “Superstooge” and then “Hogwash” but instead they directly went into the “Hog” which was a 13 min version complete with “Halleluwah” jam! “Sungravy” was beautiful. The people sang “Happy Birthday” again. This show had much more of an x-factor than Berlin…

Wow Great set list ! , it would have been cool to see Motorpsycho in Hamburg , and of course catch a show with the local heros Captain Obvious in Hamburg !!November 4, 2009 at 13:21 #14160BeParticipant
Good show indeed! Nice audience, apart from the prick behind be who talked on his mobile phone during Sungravy! What a f***er!
Some things bugged me though. Alex describes very well how they deconstruct the songs nowadays and I don’t know if I really like that. Yesterday Snah’s noodeling sometimes was a bit too much for me – and usually I like guitar noodeling. Taking all the drive out of Songs like Hogwash and Diana (which started really groovey and hot. Really god!) doesn’t please me. If they do it on 1 or 2 Songs ok, but yesterday it was just a bit too much for me.
Second thing: Kenneth is really an animal and I like his playing a lot on most of the songs, but for example during Kill Some Day, he plays loads and loads of fills and stuff that just doesn’t belong there. I think sometimes less is more.
(Anybody remember the old Amadeus movie by Milos Forman, where Mozart asks the Kaizer if he liked his opera and the Kaizer answers something like “Well yes, but I think there are too many notes!”)
Oh and I think Kill Devil Hills should get a rest – it’s becoming the new Go To California for me!
That’s all whining on a very high level, I knowNovember 4, 2009 at 13:31 #14161supernautParticipant
Well they must play KDH in Winterthur. Missed it in Berlin. Can’t get enough of that one. As opposed to Go To California. :mrgreen:
I had an issue with “less is more” during the Cake and Phanerothyme shows. Too much hippiejam noodling back then. Now it’s just right for me.
and yeah, some prick that guy must have been.November 4, 2009 at 15:01 #14162HolleParticipantQuote:Yesterday Snah’s noodeling sometimes was a bit too much for me
and I think not always very inspired.
the second part of the allchemyst for example, here he played very fast
and all of this spacey atmosphere went lost.
and i love guitar noodeling and jam’s a lot,
that’s one reason why I am a motorpsycho fan!Quote:Second thing: Kenneth is really an animal and I like his playing a lot on most of the songs, but for example during Kill Some Day, he plays loads and loads of fills and stuff that just doesn’t belong there. I think sometimes less is more.
2nd that, too.
yesterday and in berlin too, I started to miss geb again.Quote:That’s all whining on a very high level, I know
2nd That, off course!
I still love this guys, their music and their concerts and I’m happy to see them tonight again.
