I want an official live version of Fool's Gold… Live that song turns from a nice little acoustic ditty into an absolute Monster on par with Vortex Surfer!October 22, 2019 at 17:00 #36334boomer former helmParticipant
For me it would be Dreamhome from Leipzig and Starhammer from Den HaagOctober 22, 2019 at 20:13 #36335
Well, I guess everyone's choices depend on the concerts they attended, and although I think it's fun to speculate; no next roadworks album has been announced yet and by now we know the boys are gonna do what they wanna do, so who knows what we'll get, which is another reason why I love MP: the surprises (The Light Fantastic sure was one)!
As far as I am concerned standing here like you all at the wishing well; I'd say just publish the integral Den Haag gig as a dvd-haircuts II kinda thing, or vinyls (3 to 5) with dvd and cd kinda package like they did with the Konsert For Folk Flest !
It deserves that kind of solid documentation in my opinion.October 22, 2019 at 20:25 #36336ffbernieParticipant
its coming JERO…its coming… :lol:October 22, 2019 at 20:49 #36337
Hahaha, @Bernie, I wasn't being impatient, you take all the time you need to do it right! Just playing along with the game here. The results of your work will probably come very close to what I fantasized and will help me through the winter in the best way!October 23, 2019 at 10:47 #36338

You lied from Bremen with Tomas' drum solo was Killer (especially with the woman yelling "Tomas!" at its peak-check out spacebandit's recording) and deserves a proper live release (imo).October 23, 2019 at 19:55 #36340cjacobParticipant
MAD SUN..Mountain…October 24, 2019 at 15:41 #36341
I would like a six vinyl box set containing all the songs played during the Autumn tour of Europe. Am I asking too much? Maybe leave out tracks from RW5 (only for the sake of space) but that just leaves out Un Chien dâ€™espace, Ship of Fools and Manmower. If they had to limit it to just three discs then I would plump for the ones with the **.
Fools Gold **
A Pacific Sonata
Mad Sun **
Bonny Lee **
You Lied **
Spin Spin Spin
Granny takes a trip
Song for a Bro
Year Zero **
The Jig is up
California (Iâ€™m so sold)
A Song for Everyone
Lux Aeterna **
Black 2 Comm
Pills Powders etc **
The Light Fantastic
On my Pillow **
For Mad Men Only
On a Plate
Ship of Fools
Nothing to say **
Un Chien dâ€™espace

Quite unrealistic – you'd block the few remaining European vinyl printing plants with that
As much as it hurts selecting I'd opt for a more "realistic" 3-LP Volume, or better a still not completely unrealistic 4 LP Box with side lengths between 19 and 23 min.
Selection would then be as follows:
The Jig Is Up
Granny Takes A Trip
Starhammer (20 min. version)
Song for A Bro (Cologne)
Mountain (full blown)
For Madmen Only
Think I'll compile that for me anyway on CD, but an official vinyl version would be hog heaven!
A possible full 3 CD edition would then probably also include California, A Pacific Sonata, Mockingbird, The Crucible, Mad Sun and Black to Comm. Jeez!!!
The title presents itself: Of course "For Madmen Only!" Subtitle: Grandpa's European TripOctober 24, 2019 at 18:06 #36343Phoots FlowerParticipant
This is fun.
And now something completely different.
3LP + DVD/BR with some vÃdeos Bernie archiveswith official audios.October 24, 2019 at 18:17 #36344
Even though they made an exception with Un Chien d'Espace, I hope they'll keep their tradition of not repeating songs in their roadworks… This would exclude Hogwash from Heartfield's list…
My possible list for a more modest 2LP could be:
The Jig is Up
Song for a Bro
Fools GoldOctober 24, 2019 at 19:46 #36345
Well if there would come a roadwork from this tour, true to the aim of that series, is should be focused on improvisation and deviation from 'regular album' versions. So then stuff like the starhammers, towers, pacific or otherwise sonata's, manmowers etc. makes sense due to their nightly different appearances. There are also songs that are maybe unique to the tour like for madmen only. But as far as the Jigs, all 3 songs from The Crucible, and even fool's gold, however beautiful etc. go, and I'm not saying I didn't loooooove these songs being played, they don't differ too much from the regular album versions. So if they followed that rule it would narrow the choices a bit.
I just bought the Very Big Xmass MP Gift Sock (see hidden peel off/fold out page in the Connaisseur's Catalogue) still stick (man!) to the idea of a deluxe package (vinyls/cd or download or/with dvd with Bernie's work) of the integral Den Haag gig!October 24, 2019 at 21:44 #36346Johnny_HeartfieldParticipant
I support the Idea of a Bernie material DVD. As for the audio tracks: Bernie's vids have increased considerably in audio quality over the years. Just listen to those from 2018 & 19!
Wonder where you get the sounds from, Bernie! Just a lot of mics? Do you remix several sources/positions or did you probably even get mixing desk material the last times? Sounds brilliant in any case!October 25, 2019 at 10:59 #36347ffbernieParticipant
hey guys, dvds are so 2010 …just hook your computer up to a big screen and speakers like i do with a simple HDMI connection the secret to the audio of my vids is indeed a mix between mixing desk recordings and some extra mics. I assure you mixing desk recording alone are unlistenable (very unmotorpsychodelic). The key to understanding their live sound is they like to have the onslaught come from their amps on stage. So in the PA there is not much bass or guitar…just drums and vocals mainly. So what i did the last couple of years is put 2 mics on stage to get the full blast of Bents bass and Snahs guitar. The drums and vocals I blend in from the mixing board recordings…sometimes the balance works, sometimes not. But LEUVEN, BRAINE and DEN HAAG were pretty good mix wise…You gotta be a little lucky as well thanks for the kind words everyone…the rest of the Den Haag show should be up next week (Im at my upload limit again…damn these long songs)
