  1. finally received my copy. the album is just great. fantastic sound and really good selection of jam passages. only downside is really the wrong order and labeling of the songs...

    Well, just to return to the topic for a moment:
    Anybody thinks Taifun feels a bit different sung lower?
    Don't misunderstand my words: it's still abso-fucking-lutely amazing!
    But am I the only one which, at his first listen, thought "Whoa! That was unexpected!" as soon as the voice kicked in?

    Off topic: I'm one of those old-fashioned CD lovers, but I must admit Digital Download and storing is the future, since it even offers a higher audio quality than CD

    For me it was not surprising. Bent sings it this way for years now.

    Roadwork I, II and IV are now available on Tidal & Spotify. III and V might follow later?

    Not in norwegian Spotify.

    However. Blissard, AADAP, Trust Us, Cake, Barracuda, Phanerothyme, Love Cult and BHBC are now available (finally) on norwegian Spotify!

    Edit: RW1, 2 and 4 are indeed available also in Norway.

    @ Wulf: I didn't know that! I last heard it in 2013 and it was sung like the original, so I thought it never changed. Cool!

    I got both albums last week, and RW3 has been stuck on my record player ever since.
    That Stained Glass... Brilliant!

    Still need to find time to really listen to RW5. Checked out Taifun. Not bad, at all.
    Meh, who am I kidding. RW3 it is!

    Finally found the time to listen to most of RW V in one go - from the first notes of "Sleepwalking"/"Lacuna Sunrise" to the final consonant "pling" of "Chien d'Espace".
    Used my flac download - so no LP side turning for an enduring experience of sheer bliss.
    Imho the ultimate recorded MP live experience. Far, far out...

    Skipped "Ship" - I think that one is best in its studio version - with all the voices and things going on that are lost in the stage variant. Good as a live experience as well, but as a live recording rather disappointing. My view only, so feel free to disagree.
    "Taifun" I reserved for a better occasion due to sheer acoustic exhaustion

    My enthusiasm for RW III has regrettably worn off just a little bit over the years - listened to it for quite some time and still love Hogwash and 577. Maybe another intensive listening session in due time?

  9. RW5 - Which concerts?

    We already know the origins of Sleepwalking+Lacuna/Sunrise, Manmower (video here), and Köln/Un Chien. Left to figure out is Ship of Fools and Taifun.

    I have checked against surfaced audience sources from the fall tour.

    Turns out Ship of Fools is from Leipzig. Maybe they knew it was the one they were looking for, maybe they stumbled upon it while going back for Lacuna/Sunrise. This is the third time Conne Island and Leipzig is represented on a RW. The Other Other Fool on RW1 is from Leipzig, as is The Bomb-Proof Roll & Beyond on RW4. Must be something in the water!

    Now, as you might have noticed, Taifun begins with the outtro of Ship of Fools.
    It was played directly after SoF during eight concerts:

    Amsterdam, Oct 24.
    Sint Niklaas, Oct 26.
    Zwolle, Oct 28.
    Zagreb, Nov 2.
    Livorno, Nov 4. - No
    Cologne, Nov 8. - No
    Leipzig, Nov 9. - No
    Trondheim, Dec 9. - No

    Audience sources of four of them have surfaced, and it is neither of them. This leaves us with four possible concerts, as listed above. If I had to bet, I would place my money on Sint Niklaas based on the assumption that they found this one while going back for the extraordinary version of Manmower. It also makes sense from a mixing point of view. (Fewer sources to prepair and combine).

    Ship Of Fools - Conne Island, Leipzig, Nov 9. 2017
    Sleepwalking - Conne Island, Leipzig, Nov 9. 2017
    Lacuna/Sunrise - Conne Island, Leipzig, Nov 9. 2017
    Manmower - De Casino, Sint Niklaas, Oct 26. 2017
    Köln - Stollwerk, Cologne, Nov 8. 2017
    Un Chien d´Espace - Stollwerk, Cologne, Nov 8. 2017
    Taifun - De Casino, Sint Niklaas, Oct 26. 2017?

    @ The Other Anders - Nice work, Anders. Thanks. If Taifun is from Sint Niklaas, maybe one day we'll be blessed with a video of it, as we are with Manmower.

  11. @ Punj Lizard - Thanks! Well, after all it is a Bernie's Basement video, so I speculate that he filmed the whole concert, like he uses to. Just imagine a Bernie's Basement series of LPs with Blue-rays included... What a treasure that would be... It could be its own series, or part of the RW series. Oh boy, if only I was in charge of this! You'd see one RW from each tour, plus (as) complete (as possible) archive releases in a separate series on a regular basis. The Norwegian National Broadcasting company NRK must (hopefully) still have all their radio recordings stored away somewhere, as the release of Oslo March '97 might indicate (AaDAP box). I would start with Roskilde '93 and and Oslo Sentrum Scene '94, both of which are mind-blowing. Then go on to Rome '94, which was recorded by radio and filmed by audience. Should be possible to restore, and would have been a natural addition to the Timothy's box, just like the great Groningen '93 dvd included in the Demon Box 2014 reissue. So here my series would rectify that omission. Then I'd go back to NRK with Oslo March '96, Stavanger '98, and then dive into the recordings from Swedish National Radio (SR) - I think they at least recorded them in '98 and '00. From NRK there is also Roskilde '99, Oslo '01, as well as Øyafestival '06, which is a Blue-ray waiting to happen (BH/BC reissue material?!). This is only from the top of my head, there is probably stuff I forget - oh yeah, that wonderful and bizarre Bizarre Festival '02 filmed by Rockpalast would become an instant classic as well. And then there is probably stuff we never heard about, just waiting to blow our minds and budgets, should Someone decide to grace our humble lifes with it...

    Are you serious?? :?:

  13. Yes, for some reason it has grown on me over the years. Bizarre because of the huge stage, the hipster horn section, the erratic setlist and the sitting audience waiting for KoЯn. And wonderful for the same reasons, plus the music is well played and the whole thing is well filmed. I get the same kind of pychedelic feeling as when watching vintage stuff from the 70s. Maybe I should have written "wonderfully bizarre"...

    It isn't Amsterdam either, since they didn't play the extended version there yet. It was also followed by another song, so it didn't have the long outro as the RW5 version.

    I think Taifun is from the Zwolle gig because it is how i remember them playing it. I think.

    - that wonderful bizarre Bizarre festival '02 gig -

    has grown with me from year to year. On first watching the Rockpalast video on TV I was duly disappointed - rather flat Rockpalast sound, lame audience reactions, rather short festival gig, very bizarre set list - not just the selection itself, but also the order of songs played...
    After listening to it several times I began to realize what an extraordinary gig that was. Still way to short, but man: Song for A Bro & that Supertristano with JJ Horns! Black to Comm! Shame the audience obviously didn't get it. But hey - what can you expect from a big festival KoЯn audience...

    regarding bizarre/jaga jazzist: i've always stated that brass is not cool / jeg har alltid sagt at korps ikke er kult
    bizarre was not good then, i doubt it is any better now, but i'll give it another chance some day i still rate that gig as one of the worst i've attended by mp. anders - where do i find a recording?

    I think Taifun is from the Zwolle gig because it is how i remember them playing it. I think.

    Makes sense, as it was the last song in Zwolle and on RW V it definitely sounds like a finale with the long audience recording

    I attended the MP concert at Bizarre festival in 2002, I agree with mefisto that it was one of the worst. However, the day before in Cologne was much better, a really great concert.

    Posted 8 months ago #
  21. Agreed, the Cologne concert the day before was very good, and better than Bizarre setlist-wise and playing-wise.

    Cologne had "Theme de Yoyo", "Sinful, Wind-borne", Upstairs-Downstairs, and "Pills, Powders + Passion Plays", while Bizarre had "Nothing To Say". The "Supertristano/Black To Comm"-segment was longer in Cologne.

    There were also a few other very apparent differences:

    Club vs festival (although, Cologne was part of Popkomm)
    Devoted audience vs casual
    Indoor vs outdoor
    Nighttime spot vs daytime spot (in fact both concerts were played within less than 24h)
    Air condition vs sun/30° C
    1,5h vs 1h

    Cologne was also filmed, at least parts of it. Together these two concerts could serve as a very good illustration of the different extremes band and audiences alike can experience from just one concert to the next, and also help explain some of the reasons for being a Psychonaut!

  22. Is everyone here aware of the fantastic documentation of the 2006 BH/BC tour that amazingly enough still is available on Øyvind Brandtsegg's webpage of documentation for his master thesis?

    In my collection, these recordings serve as:

    ROADWORK 3.5 - Spacedogs and other assorted jam songs

    1) Un Chien d’espace [30:54] – Brussels, May 7th 2006
    2) Sancho Says [6:14] – Halden, April 27th 2006
    3) Un Chien d’espace [34:52] – Darmstadt, May 14th 2006
    4) Triggerman [9:53] – Rimini, May 11th 2006
    5) Un Chien d’espace [21:41] – Rimini, May 11th 2006

    Leipzig was not part of this tour, but notice that Brandtsegg, while probably not aware of it, has picked soley classic MP venues/cities in regards to where the far-out stuff usually occurs!

    Yep, I was aware of that one, TheOtherAnders.

    In fact, the version of Chien from Brussels might just be the best
    one I've ever heard!

    Also a great Rimini-version of my favorite BH/BC track, Triggerman

    Agreed that Brussel 2006 was stunning!
    I was there and was blown away by the majestic Chien

  25. @mefisto: Have you got/do you need the complete souvenir? Did you do the whole tour, or was Brussels your last? I remember regretting turning back home after Münster...
