      Hey all. I just put together a stat of which Songs I saw them play in concert, how often, and so on.

      I know there are the crazy folks here who saw them several hundred times ^^. Is there maybe somone araound who saw already every Song of them played live? What are the Songs you saw most and which are the Songs you want them to play real badly?

      My stats:

          @Punj wow… you have been busy :) remember when you joined here. Feels like yesterday :D To Kenneth i talk kind of always when i visit Spidergawd Concerts. Great guy! At my first Spidergawd Concert i had also the pleasure talking to Bent when they had a Pizza right in front of the 50 People Venue after the Concert. What a day!


            @dongonz It seems we have seen each other some times :-)

            Concerts visited: 15 (2008-2022)


            Beatpol, Dresden x5; Conne Island, Leipzig x4; Festsaal Kreuzberg, Berlin x2; Faust, Hannover 1x; Schlachthof, Bremen 1x; Schlachthof, Wiesbaden 1x; Gloria, Köln 1x

            Song anticipated most: All is loneliness


            2008 Beatpol, Dresden – my very first one, I had no idea who they are, I just read an ad in the city news and thought "Motorpsycho" sounds like "Motörhead" might be not too bad. They needed about 15 Minutes to catch me :-)

            2012 Conne Island, Leipzig – The Death Defying Unicorn my second one. Unbelievably loud, unbelievably good and "Burn" as an encore. From that point on, they had me forever.


            Concerts visited: 31 (i think); 2000-2019


            Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Spain

            Different songs played: Many

            Song played most often: You Lied? Hogwash? Serpentine? Upstairs Downstairs?

            Song anticipated most: K9; this piece has retained all its magic since the first time I witnessed it live.

            Specials; in chronological order:

            Jam > K9 part 1> K9 jam > Upstairs Downstairs opener for my first show

            K9 at Trondheim fall 2006; the one time I was left not only speechless, but unable to speak.

            Glow > jam > Hogwash at Eindhoven 2008; the jam in that segue was out of this world

            All is Loneliness closer at Rotterdam, 2008 with a dead silent audience holding their collective breaths until Bent's vocals had been reduced to an acapella whisper to close the song

            Enjoying the show sitting on a bar stool with my feet on stage and Bent's bass towering almost directly above me in a small basement at Barcelona, 2011


            Concerts 12 since 2008

            3 Herzberg, 3 Schlachthof Bremen, 3 Markthalle Hamburg, Gruenspan Hamburg, Faust Hannover, Krach am Bach Festival

              Song anticipated most: Radiance Freq (the first ever song I have heard live and it caught me immediately), Un Chien D'Espace, Flick Of The Wrist (please play it again)

              Specials: too many to mention:

              like meeting Anders and Oystein in Norway 2000 on concerts, being for the first time in Rockefeller Oslo or in Conne Island Leipzig or Beatpol Dresden – Faust in Hannover and Forum Bielefeld and Folken Stavanger are impressive venues, too

              (almost forgotten) but great venues:

              Leer Zollhaus (is there still going on anything?)

              Berlin Kesselhaus

              Oldenburg Kulturetage (please play there again)


                Concerts visited: 18 (1996-2022).

                Longest gap between shows: 7 years (2002-10-29 to 2009-10-29) :(

                Locations: Six different cities in Sweden (incl five different venues in Stockholm), Oslo (twice), Utrecht, Copenhagen (thrice) and Berlin.

                Most "obscure": Strömsborg in Vänersborg, Sweden, 1997-11-02 (opening for Fireside), and Herrgår'n in Linköping, Sweden, 1998-03-26.

                Most songs at a show: 18 (Pumpehuset in Copenhagen, Denmark, 2014-06-11).

                Least songs at a show: 6 (Raj Harder indoors festival in Köping, Sweden, 1997-11-01).

                Different songs experienced: 126.

                Song experienced most often: "STG" (9 times), and luckily it's a great one :-)

                Song anticipated most: "The wheel", which I still haven't experienced live :|


                -A couple of "Un chien d'espace" performances before the jams became ridiculously extended :lol: I know a lot of people love it more the longer it gets. One of my favorite songs but I don't think it benefits from exceeding 18 minutes – those improvisations don't match the mood of the lyrics or the feel of the basic song, according to me.

                -"Painting the night unreal" – a huge favorite of mine – once (Debaser Slussen, Stockholm, 2002-10-29).

                -Two nights in a row this year (Malmö and Copenhagen) with only one (1) overlapping song. Total worship!


                  Cool! Love these kinds of lists…

                  Song played most often: Ship of Fools & The Cuckoo (7)

                  Song anticipated most: (as in 'not seen live yet'?) The Golden Core, W.B.A.T. and Gullible's Travails


                  – Seeing them in the high north of Norway (Tromso) and interviewing them just before the show (interview was agreed on the day before, while I requested it 3 or 4 weeks earlier, hadn't heard anything from them or the management in-between, so the preparation was quite stressy)

                  – The entire Botanique (Brussels) concert in 2017 (Un chien d'espace! The wheel! A pacific sonata! Here be monsters! Ship of fools! Vortex surfer! And a couple more…)

                  – Feedtime – Utrecht 2017

                  – Not having any memory of the Krach am Bach show in 2017 (was I there?)

                  – Seeing my girlfriend being in a total trance and state of 'disbelief' at the Nijmegen show in 2018 (her first MP gig)

                  – Driving 1000 km for the (free!) 2 Days Prog + 1 festival where they played in 2017

                  – A crowd of around 40 people in Arlon this week, the smallest audience I've ever experienced at a MP show


                    @ nicoot: Thanks for the personal report. Is the interview from 2013 released, e. g. for a report? Is it available? Motorpsycho don't do many interviews.


                      @Juergen I can't seem to find it online anymore, but I just found it in my own mailbox (the advantages of sending stuff to yourself, just in case…). So that was almost 9 years ago, I'd discovered MP a few months earlier and I had (next to) no experience with interviews or journalism (and almost no time to prepare), so bear with me… ;-) Also not in my mother tongue…

                      It was an interview for the student magazine of Universitetet i Tromso, called Utropia. I think the Word version I have is about 95% of what eventually appeared in the magazine.

                      I also wrote a 'review' of their 2013 Driv gig, but can't seem to find it anywhere, not online, not in my mailbox…

                      Where can I send the interview to?


                        Great thread! Love reading the specials. But how do you guys count the individual songs seen? Is there a tool or clever way to do it other than manually? Is this something I can do with the help of the database?


                          I actually gathered the concerts from and entered the songs in a table and counted them together. Took as long as "Little Lucid Moments" :-)


                            Concerts visited: 78 between 1996-2022

                            Locations: many in Germany, Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxemburg, Norway, most notorious city hometown Berlin (17x), most notorious venues Conne Island Leipzig (5x) and Schlachthof Bremen (5x)

                            Different songs played: many

                            Song played most often: most likely Hogwash (23), Superstooge (21), The Other Fool (19), STG (18), but that is just a superficial count based on my own textfile with setlist from my shows

                            Song anticipated most: K9, always


                            > Berlin 1996: My first one. Only went there because the preview in the city mag sounded interesting.


                            > Dresden 1999: The first one I traveled to. My first K9 encore, close to 45 min. Point of no return.

                            > Hamburg 2000: The first one where I knew the entire catalogue, every song and the first one I taped.

                            > Leipzig / Berlin 2000: Getting hooked on travelling to see MP, making friends…

                            > Bielefeld 2001: Listening to the soundcheck where they kinda did The Who's "Live at Leeds"

                            > Oslo 2003: Tussler tour of Oslo, 4 shows in 4 days in 4 venues

                            > Rostock 2006: Intimate show with super setlist. Met my soon-to-be girl-friend, a fellow traveling MP fan, on the trip to this show from the previous one in Copenhagen. We are still together today :-)

                            > Berlin 2008: The first MP show after a while, my first one with Kenneth, an explosion of energy!

                            > Leipzig 2010: The one with the 21 minute "Arne H" on Roadworks IV

                            > Bielefeld 2015: I remember the band as extraordinarily telepathic and dialed in. A rare trio show!

                            > München / Dresden 2022: The biggest difference between two consecutive shows I have yet witnessed.


                              Besuchte Konzerte : Ca. 12

                              2003 durfte ich MP zum ersten mal live erleben und es hat mich einfach nur weggeblasen…
