The autumn tour is over, time to gather fresh memories before the bootlegs let us go deeper:
What songs/versions of the Crucible II tour would deserve a Roadwork release?
– Starhammer (!)
– The Tower
– Hogwash/Spin + Bonny combos
And any Fools Gold. Lux Aeterna also became a majestic closer to a show. Not sure if Whip That Ghost was nailed this tour. (I attended Cologne, Leipzig, Berlin and Hengelow).
If we add the first leg of the tour there is more to add of course, alone Leuven held at least three candidates (Lacuna Spacerise, Pacific Sonata, Fools Gold).October 21, 2019 at 15:44 #36319FlippernParticipant
Haven't attended any of the latest shows, but Fool's gold was amazing in Trondheim this spring as well. Really hope to hear that on a roadwork soon. Have we ever had Black to comm on a live record? I think that track swings live. I'd also like to hear a Year zero some time.October 21, 2019 at 15:48 #36320DeadnautpsychoheadParticipant
I could only attend Bremen in the second leg. I liked Whip That Ghost a lot, highlight was without any doubt Fools Gold. Sadly, I didn't have a Starhamster.
I was in Hamburg in spring, so I had two Ãœberpilgrims this year and that was another highlight of the whole tour for me.

Generally I liked the long long long pieces best – lots of space to explore. So the Berlin Hogspin-Halleluwash is one of my favourites, same as one of these two last German Starhmmers (Leipzig or Berlin). In comparison & hindsight I find the Cologne show rather dissappointing – although there was some good noodling at the start and a wonderful Fool's Gold at the end.
What about Whip that Brother / Song for a Ghost? Probably the Bremen one, but there were lots of other good versions on this tour.
The Crucible material doesn't develop much on a live record – it is great live material, but giving that it was probably recorded almost live in the studio there is not much difference apart from the various noise/freakout parts. Probably Psychotzar as an opener?
I would always swap that for The Cuckoo – rarely played on this tour but still awaiting a live relase. The Berlin version?
The Sonata should also find its place on the next possible RW record – so why not make it a triple one again?
And this was only the choice from the second leg of the Crucible tour…
edit: I forgot that brilliant Cologne August version – to be included!October 21, 2019 at 18:31 #36323supernautParticipant
Lux, Fool's and a really really really trippy Sonata.October 21, 2019 at 18:51 #36324fillmoreParticipant
Every "Starhammer" and "Tower" jam, just the jams.
The Leipzig or Hengelo "Mountain".October 21, 2019 at 20:14 #36325grindoveParticipant
One thing I wish for is that no songs are spread out over two sides of the vinyl. It happens twice on RW5, and it really ruins the listening pleasure for me. I'd prefer shorter versions with no interuptions.October 21, 2019 at 20:51 #36326

An accompanying CD would help solve the long track problem.October 21, 2019 at 23:11 #36328grindoveParticipantQuote:An accompanying CD would help solve the long track problem.
Sure, I know, and those of us who actually prefer to play our vinyls only have ourselves to blame – that's life. But what surprises me is that this has happened on Motorpsycho releases, although Bent etc praises and values the vinyl format.
Sadly, I've only listened through the complete RW5 twice, because it's too annoying. Still, yes, I understand: that's MY problem.October 22, 2019 at 00:09 #36329AkiParticipant
Vote for The Tower in FrankfurtOctober 22, 2019 at 08:51 #36330Krist RampageParticipant
They have been touring quite a lot with Reine Fiske over the last few years. What iâ€™d like to hear on a new RW is songs that really show the magic of this lineup. Songs as August, Triggerman, the Tower.October 22, 2019 at 09:41 #36331dongonzParticipant
I only attended the Leipzig Show.
So my Favs are:
If there were good Versions of Triggerman, SongBro, Sonata or Hogwash I'd like to have them on the Record toOctober 22, 2019 at 10:25 #36332RuneParticipantQuote:The Wheel in The Hague
