    Excuse my ignorance: who’s the extra guitarist?

    They are playing Hush now btw. Nice!

    That could be Reine Fiske of Dungen. Did he also play keyboards (Mellotron that would be)? Hush!

    Yes! Then it’s probably Reine. Hard to tell from where I’m standing. (Røverstaden is not the best venue I’ve been at.

    They played Spin, spin, spin into Hush. I was wondering about the rhythm/groove of Spin, spin, spin, but it all made sense when they started Hush

    I was surprised (and happy) to see Reine there. Saw him thursday in a bar in Trondheim (he was still there when I left).

    [Update - see Anders' set below]

    Highlights were "Intrepid Explorer" (a personal live-favourite), "Heartattack Mac" (mind-blowing - MUCH better than at Konserthuset, and "Back To Source" had a fantastic and quite melodic psych-jam), "Ship Of Fools" (just incredible energy) and "Taifun" (insanely good - absolutely God-like). I'm also glad they played "A Pacific Sonata" - one of my favourites from The Tower.

  8. Thanks, Devotional, you are absolutely right. Manmower added. The Sonata is there, just written as on setlist.

    Ah, I see!

    Interesting that they had planned to do Un Chien. Bent told the crowd that they were tired, and only had energy left for one more song when they returned for the encore.

    I was in the front row and had a fantastic time, but I'm sure the people in the back had a bit of a struggle seeing the band. Bent asked at one point "Do you see anything?", to which the crowd responded with a resounding "NOOO!" Bent smiled and said that they weren't much to look at anyway, so it's OK. A totally false statement btw, as both him and Snah were bundles of energy tonight. Oh, and Tomas was flawless. Had trouble hearing him over Snah's Hiwatt's at times, but his playing was brilliant.

    Røverstaden is not the best venue I’ve been at.

    I would have to agree. Couldn't see anything, the sound was atrociously loud, and if it weren't for the fact that I saw Reine on stage, I wouldn't have believed he was there (his contributions were not very audible)

    I moved around a lot to find a place with decent sound, but that was nowhere to be found...

    Highlights: Dream Home, Starhammer (first time with Tomas?), and the last 4 tracks of the main set.

    Shame they didn't play Sol På Sunnan + Un Chien!

    Great gig again. Not my fav venue in oslo. Thomas was insane. Great drum sound. The sound of the snare drum was dope. Snah was on fire. I was hoping Kristoffer Lo was in the band. I think songs like Taifun need him.

    Good gig, lots of syltetøy. Not impressed by Røverstaden :/

    Is Reine going to play to whole tour?

    Posted 6 months ago #
  15. I was in the first row too, just in front of Snah. Sound there was good, as we mostly heard the sound from the backline, which was rich, warm and pleasantly loud. I could hear Reine through the PA, and seeing him helped a lot. Then I could tell that he was actually playing a lot that was audible, for instance some mellow mellotron in Dream Home and a ferocious guitar solo in August, to mention but a few. It was probably hard to tell from further back in the room, though. Reine will play the upcoming Benelux dates.

    Jamming highlights: Dream Home, August, Intrepid Explorer (seemed re-arranged somehow), Starhammer (skronk territory), Spin Hush Spin, H Mac > Back To Source, Manmower, The Tower.

    Thanks all for an unforgettable day in Oslo! Just perfect in every way.

    And what's this Malibu song then?

    Posted 6 months ago #

    @crossskip, I think it's "The Maypole (including Malibu and Stunt Road)"

    I think Malibu must be the Pacific Sonata. Isnt the part (including Malibu and Stunt Road) accidently credited to The Maypole? Like a misprint on the sleeve.

    @crosskip: will I see you tomorrow in Alkmaar?

    Malibu is A Pacific Sonata.

    No, "Malibu" is part of "The Maypole", and was definitely played. The Sonata was played after "Manmower" (in place of "Sol på Sunnan").

    Eh, no. Malibu is part of A Pacific Sonata. It is listed as part of The Maypole
    on the CD, but that's a typo. A 3 1/2 minute acoustic song having 2 sub-parts
    doesn't make any sense.

    A Pacific Sonata (incl. Malibu and Stunt Road) was played in its entirety before
    Manmower.

    Alright, great that that's all cleared out now =p

    @harry Still tempted to go, have to leave a bit early to catch the train, but I could still see most of the show...

    Thanks for clearing that up, BUT they played the part of "The Maypole" that I thought was "Malibu", so I guess we should add "The Maypole" to the setlist then.

    I can't remember any part of Maypole. Looking at the lyrics:

    https://genius.com/Motorpsycho-a-pacific-sonata-lyrics

    [Part 1: Malibu]

    Out in Malibu where the rich folks live
    On a mountain top I will put my tent right up
    And be a holy man, oh, so deep and true
    A shoeless holy man with a view

    How could I ever tell a lie?
    No truth would ever pass me by
    How would you ever be in doubt?
    Come see me, learn what I'm about

    Come to Malibu
    The Pacific air will let you disappear
    Hear the music of the spheres
    Feel the canyon heat
    Such a magic scene
    So benign, serene: evergreen

    How could I ever tell a lie?
    No truth would ever pass me by
    How would you ever be in doubt?
    Come see me, learn what I'm about

    [Instrumental]

    How could I ever tell a lie?
    No truth would ever pass me by
    How would you ever be in doubt?
    Come see me, learn what I'm about

    Malibu

    Its very doubtful Malibu is anything else than first part of Sonata.

    Ha, this is strange. The friend I was with also remembers "The Maypole", so at least I'm not losing my sanity alone - if it really wasn't played. And that part of the sonata (which I too am now convinced is the "actual Malibu") was played a lot later (after "Manmower"). A collective case of Motorpsychosis going on here?

    Yeah, most MP titles start with 'Ma'(Maypole, Malibu, Manmower, Mantric muffin stomp, and of course M.A.S.F.E (means there's a song for everyone). The hidden message:they are the mamas of invention!

    Actually, after hearing the LarsM recording that was made available now,
    I can confirm that Sol På Sunnan was indeed played inside of Manmower.

    Thanks, otherdemon, and wow. I'm definitely not to be considered a trusted source after this. Glad Lars came up with the evidence!

    JERO, I like your reasoning.

    No probs.

    Good thing that LarsM and the usual suspects recorded this, because I had far more enjoyment listening to the recording than actually being there. But Reine wasn't very audible on the recording either, so I guess he was mixed quite low overall...

    Listened to the Liege recording, and the Manmower/Sol På Sunnan version from that one blew my socks right off. Another reminder why MP are the world's best band when things come together
