Go to California
Starhammer ( Into outer space jam)
A pacific sonata
The other fool ->
In every dream home
The tower (totally freaked out mid-section)
Pretty fuckin' awesome show
Fun fact: Before Ãœberwagner Bent noted that they would play half a MP song and half a cover song. And he urged people who knew the band they covered to reveal the answer at the merch stand and with that compete for a prize…an Egg divider. So perhaps it was an Egg song. It was pretty proggy with a lot of guitar interplay
At the end of the show, bent adressed Snah as "the guy with fuzz guitar and sex appeal" ðŸ˜ƒ
Reine Fiske joined them and did a smashing job
The Crucible was a "world premier". And they pulled it off pretty well.April 4, 2019 at 23:10 #35132April 4, 2019 at 23:35 #35133
Also, after the gig a little bird something something snah said something about new album possibly maybe august.April 5, 2019 at 00:18 #35134
They used to play a Wishbone Ash song (Pilgrims) during Uberwagner at the Behind The Sun tour, but I assume it's not what they played tonight?
Wow, double neck for Bent is some news! Where did he use it?April 5, 2019 at 00:27 #35135
The Crucible mainly, was also used on Malibu ++ just because it's fun to play.April 5, 2019 at 06:15 #35136fillmoreParticipant
So the line up for the whole show was Bent, Snah, Tomas, Reine? Thanks for the report ðŸ˜€April 5, 2019 at 06:43 #35137boomer former helmParticipant
wow the promise and california and Ã¼berwagner are back. yes and new album in august??? could make sense, i was wondering already why 2 long tours this time to promote 1 album. but lets see what happens…April 5, 2019 at 07:53 #35138Punj LizardParticipant
Is it possible Snah was referring to recording a new album in August, rather than releasing?April 5, 2019 at 07:54 #35139boomer former helmParticipant
oh well, that might be…April 5, 2019 at 07:56 #35140otherdemonParticipant
@Punj: If I remember correctly, it was said on here earlier that the boys
had been in the studio in Jan/Feb to record the HÃ¥kon GullvÃ¥g stuff they're performing
in Trondheim & Oslo this summer.
Or maybe they finished the leftovers from The Crucible sessions.
Either way, count me as being pretty excited as usual :lol:
Decent setlist, hope they keep Ãœberwagner and GtC.April 5, 2019 at 08:09 #35141Punj LizardParticipant
@otherdemon: I had thought that recording session was happening this month – not that it makes any difference. Like you say, it's exciting news. It seems hardly any time at all goes by here without some exciting news.April 5, 2019 at 08:38 #35142TomcatParticipant
Thank you for the setlist and report – Starhammer/Crucible/Sonata look like a great centrepiece. Nice to see The Pilgrim return in the Tomas era, looking forward to hearing/seing that. This was the opening night, let's see where the next weeks will carry them…
If I remember right they were writing/rehearsing early this year, are going to record that GullvÃ¥g-material in April (release in August then?) and record the new "official" motorpsycho album in September. Release early 2020 would be realistic. So much going on :MPD:April 5, 2019 at 09:58 #35143
@Tomcat: The Pilgrim is my speculation, I don't think that's what they played yesterday night… No confirmations, anywayApril 5, 2019 at 10:24 #35144DevotionalParticipant
Ouch, that's a terrible setlist imo, but good to hear that it was more than a decent show regardless. Looking forward to hearing the new songs live in May. Hope I don't have to endure GTC, but "Ãœberwagner" is quite welcome.
Wishful speculation: Will this be the tour when they finally get around to revisit some more Trust Us-material? I'm desperately hoping for "Psychonaut" above all, but some other rarely played tracks such as "Radiance Freq." and "Ozone" might be easier to pull of with Bent's new guitar/bass double axe. LOVED hearing "Taifun" on the Tower-tour, so at least they haven't forgotten the album's existence. "Mantrick Muffin Stomp" was played once in 2017 iirc.April 5, 2019 at 13:38 #35145SpacebanditParticipant
Very nice setlist, all of the songs from the new album were played. Starhamster is
always welcome, even more if they went into a space jam. The Other fool…or the other
other fool? That one from Roadworks #1 is…forever in my top10 songs of them.
I think the combination of Ãœberwagner and Wishbone Ash's "Pilgrim" worked very well a few
years ago. Superb guitar notes exchanges between Snah and Reine.
Still some six weeks to wait until Hamburg.
