    The Roadburn show was absolutely magical. The guys played the main stage which is a huge venue, capacity about 3000. Even though it was still early and beautifully sunny & hot outside, there must have been over 1500 inside for MP and they were just into it. People from all over the world, coming to this special festival, and on that day being exposed to Motorpsycho. Young, middle aged, older, men, women, girls, boys, a wonderfully mixed crowd. It was a joy to see Motorpsycho perform and the response they got. Front rows to way back & balconies. Imagine that during the quieter parts you could hear a pin drop. With 1500 people present! A thing I had never experienced so strongly as during this festival. No better proof I think of how passionate and respectful Roadburners are about music and particularly about what they witnessed during MPs show.

    Impressive. Thanks for the report! Seems I missed a good one. Quiet festivals are very rare.

    which speaks volumes for a band's authority.

    After Alkmaar came Roadburn. After a restless night following the Alkmaar gig, where I was feeling a little disappointment due to the sound, but also to my unwillingness to seek out a better position, I decided to get up and get out of town sooner rather than later, and set off to Tilburg about 6am.

    Roadburn as a whole was fantastic. I'm not a fan of at least 70% of the music on offer, but there was plenty to get into, especially the Japanese 'psych' and 'motorik' bands Kikagaku Moyo, Dhidalah and Minami Deutsch, of which the last was the best band I saw all weekened other than Motorpsycho. Earthless were also superb during their opening set, not so much with Damo Suzuki. Godspeed You! Black Emperor were phenomenal for about 20 minutes but after that just became quite boring. Ex Eye were a surprise - I thoroughly enjoyed them as did Bent, Snah, Reine and (I think) Tomas as they nodded and rocked during the last 15 minutes of the show, just a few yards to my left.

    Motorpsycho were utterly brilliant! They put on a powerful display of heavy and melodic space jams with probably only two tracks (Bartok and The Cuckoo) coming in at under ten minutes. Un Chien was magnificent, especially in the middle jam section where I could audibly hear people around me gasping with incredulity as the boys increased the tempo and intensity again and again and again. I think a few minds were blown

    Starhammer was also a highlight for me as I love the song, but in Alkmaar two nights earlier it felt like Snah lost his way as he bent down and twiddled with nobs, working on loops that never quite seemed to hit the mark (although he obviously pulled it together eventually ... and how!). Here at Roadburn he was on the money from the word go. Freaking glorious!

    Having said Starhammer was a highlight, I have to say, the whole gig was a highlight. Such a contrast to Alkmaar, which was, for me, hit and miss, with A Pacific Sonata probably being my favourite there.

    The sound too was incredible. I think the 013 is now my favourite venue (of that size). The sightlines, the sound, the ambiance, the design, all superb. I stood about ten rows back, almost dead centre and the sound was clear as a bell. As Valderrama says above, you could hear a pin drop, and as he and supernaut point out together, an indication of (a) the respectfulness of the Roadburn audience, but also (b) the authority Motorpsycho commanded, not by name, but by their playing.

    Roadburn was witness to a very special and powerful peformance, and I am sure MP will have some new fans as a result.

    Following the show, I bumped into Tomcat and TheOtherAnders a couple of times - both of them looking a little wide-eyed after the magnificent performance. I don't think I'm the only one who thought this was a special show.

    I see that the Roadburn organisers have just released audio streams of some of the concerts from Roadburn 2017. I'm not sure if they do this for all shows, but assuming they do the same for 2018 shows, we may yet get a chance to hear a recording of the Motorpsycho show (no others have surfaced to the best of my knowledge). It may be a while before anything is released but keep your psycho-sensors on high alert.

    The Roadburn set has been recorded, but not mixed yet by the Roadburn team.
    I guess MP wants to hear the mixes and then give their approval. Fingers crossed they approve!

    With the video of Krach am Bach it was the same:
    They wanted to see the video und hear the mix.
    After that, they gave the approval. Now we have a nice, professional made video.
    look at YouTube or the link at http://www.krachambach.de !!!
