Great work! Just about to watch it – 10 minutes through, but already exciting!November 28, 2019 at 22:08 #36783
What a TREAT! This is indeed just what Iâ€™ve been waiting for; getting the guys to speak! Great insights & great production, 6/6, thanks! I know this is the premiere tonight, but anyway, please: More! We need more oral history regarding MP, this is important stuff youâ€™re doing. Thanks for the hard work Bernie and Sam, all the best! â¤ï¸November 28, 2019 at 22:23 #36784ThorEgilParticipant
Sure did Bernie – and the result exceeds any and all expectationsNovember 28, 2019 at 22:57 #36785
hey thanks everyone…really moved by all the reactions. That makes it all worthwile. I had all of you in mind while making it x BernieNovember 28, 2019 at 23:14 #36786
I hope each and everyone of us has a cherished copy of Rainbow's Rising album. Because if that record hadn't happened, something else might not have happened ever.November 28, 2019 at 23:18 #36787
might be fun if everyone picks a quote they really like and explain what they like about it…just an idea..;might be nice to bundle it and present it to the band x bernieNovember 29, 2019 at 00:12 #36788
oh i will. there are so many. Snah's ending quote haha, but also many others… sometimes I feel like Bent is my mind-twin. From Kiss to Purple, then skipping the 80ties except The Cure for the same reasons and landing back in the then present with HÃ¼sker DÃ¼ and Dinosaur Jr.
Tomas' observations and comments are very interesting, as in how, as the newbie, to get inside the inner workings of the group. He's like a gateway for us outsiders, touching upon stuff Bent and Hans never would mention because to them it's become so natural and common like breathing and therefore not mentioned.
and that "Gutan I Skogen" snippet, oh wow… is there a proper recording of a whole version like this somewhere? Or is it sadly a lost (or rather missed) possibility for a Golden Vortex classic? Sounds fantastic! And great choice to end the film.November 29, 2019 at 00:27 #36789
@Supernaut : the phenomenal Gutan I Skogen jam is from a Manmower version…it has always been my favourite MP live moment http://www.motorpsychodelicclips.com/reflektor/manmower-incl-gutan-i-skogen-themeNovember 29, 2019 at 00:36 #36790
Thanks so much for your work Bernie (and Sam) – I feel almost like after a good mp concert, not being able to find words … you extracted the core of motorpsycho with such great images and music and settings. Most intimate, wow. So many highlights. Also a great climax, wonderful choice of songs – Fools Gold = brilliantly placed and moving to tears in combo with that unexpected "Gutan I Skogen" peeling out of Manmower (2:0 for Belgium ) There's so much in this. So much of our own lives as well while following the timeline. Damn we're getting old!November 29, 2019 at 00:47 #36791
@Tomcat : thanks man…choosing music for this film was incredibly hard. It was very tempting to just put in my personal favourites but I had to choose the ones that served the story (improv, jazz rock,…) AND they had to be of decent enough quality. its not a classic greatest hits selection. Im glad you like it x bernieNovember 29, 2019 at 00:48 #36792
ah if only there was a motorpsycho videoclips site with a search function… erm… oh….. 8O i guess i was too far in the zone after watching the film.November 29, 2019 at 01:04 #36793
Great idea with the quotes
Spontaneously I got the most "news'n'views" from what Tomas said, I especially like how you cut his King Crimson quoteNovember 29, 2019 at 07:37 #36794otherdemonParticipant
That was great stuff. Thanks a lot Bernie for making this documentary happen.
Invaluable insight into the minds of the musical geniuses that is MP!
And I agree about the Manmower/Gutan i Skogen segment ending the doc. One of
the highlights of recent MP live years! I remember saying in the Begynnelser thread
that I thought that track worked well on its own without the visual accompaniment
of the theater play. Maybe they read the forum, and took notice of that comment :lol:
But it was quite blasphemous of Tomas to refer to Led Zeppelin as SHIT. :twisted:November 29, 2019 at 08:06 #36795Punj LizardParticipant
@Tomcat – Yes! The King Crimson cut was brilliant. So well edited. And as a quote, this has to be one of my favourites, especially because, as @otherdemon says, it is so blasephmous to describe Led Zeppelin as lousy, crap. :lol: :lol:
Tomas: "My dad introduced me to Deep Purple, Jimi Hendrix … and then he made one mistake: he went to put on Red by King Crimson … and then after that, Led Zeppelin. That was a bad move. Led Zep was complete bullshit to me because Bill Bruford, King Crimson, [as an] 8-year-old drummer at home you're going bananas. And then you hear Led Zeppelin. This is lousy, crap – that's what I thought at that point, because nothing was as cool as King Crimson. So what you should do is Deep Purple, Sabbath, Zeppelin … then Crimson."

That was fast – just wanted to turn that right as well
Honestly: After KC RED any drummer sounds lame, even Bonzo. That is what his otherwise obviously very passionate and wise dad did wrong = the order of introducing those two bands I love those little details.
