    Dear psychonauts, in december 2018 me and my friend Sam went to Trondheim to interview the band about past, present and future. I am very happy to finally present you with the result. Enjoy x Bernie https://vimeo.com/376023605

    Wonderful, this has to be the dvd 1 in the great BernieBox
    So nice to have the guys talking about their workprocess, epiphanies and personal music 'education'! There were a lot of moments I had to shout out during watching, for example: like Snah says: never underestimate Knutsen & Ludvigsen, I say Juba to that! Also the concert material is well picked. The only reason I'm writing this post only now is that I had to forward the link to some 30 people first. Wow! This is a landmark of documentation, and a great introduction to MP for newbies as well.
    Now I can only hope Snah will find the right hearing aids to continue on for another 30 years...
    Bernard, Sam and others involved in this, thank you so much!

    @Jero : thanks. Maybe nothing really new for hardcore psychonauts but like you said I made it in the hope of converting newbies as well. I tried to make something that is timeless and you dont need to know a lot of info to enjoy the film. in that sense its about the creative process in general as well. x bernie

    What a TREAT! This is indeed just what I’ve been waiting for; getting the guys to speak! Great insights & great production, 6/6, thanks! I know this is the premiere tonight, but anyway, please: More!;) We need more oral history regarding MP, this is important stuff you’re doing. Thanks for the hard work Bernie and Sam, all the best! ❤️

    I hope each and everyone of us has a cherished copy of Rainbow's Rising album. Because if that record hadn't happened, something else might not have happened ever.

    might be fun if everyone picks a quote they really like and explain what they like about it...just an idea..;might be nice to bundle it and present it to the band x bernie

    oh i will. there are so many. Snah's ending quote haha, but also many others... sometimes I feel like Bent is my mind-twin. From Kiss to Purple, then skipping the 80ties except The Cure for the same reasons and landing back in the then present with Hüsker Dü and Dinosaur Jr.
    Tomas' observations and comments are very interesting, as in how, as the newbie, to get inside the inner workings of the group. He's like a gateway for us outsiders, touching upon stuff Bent and Hans never would mention because to them it's become so natural and common like breathing and therefore not mentioned.

    and that "Gutan I Skogen" snippet, oh wow... is there a proper recording of a whole version like this somewhere? Or is it sadly a lost (or rather missed) possibility for a Golden Vortex classic? Sounds fantastic! And great choice to end the film.

    @Supernaut : the phenomenal Gutan I Skogen jam is from a Manmower version...it has always been my favourite MP live moment http://www.motorpsychodelicclips.com/reflektor/manmower-incl-gutan-i-skogen-theme

    Thanks so much for your work Bernie (and Sam) - I feel almost like after a good mp concert, not being able to find words ... you extracted the core of motorpsycho with such great images and music and settings. Most intimate, wow. So many highlights. Also a great climax, wonderful choice of songs - Fools Gold = brilliantly placed and moving to tears in combo with that unexpected "Gutan I Skogen" peeling out of Manmower (2:0 for Belgium ) There's so much in this. So much of our own lives as well while following the timeline. Damn we're getting old!

    @Tomcat : thanks man...choosing music for this film was incredibly hard. It was very tempting to just put in my personal favourites but I had to choose the ones that served the story (improv, jazz rock,...) AND they had to be of decent enough quality. its not a classic greatest hits selection. Im glad you like it x bernie

    ah if only there was a motorpsycho videoclips site with a search function... erm... oh..... i guess i was too far in the zone after watching the film.

    Great idea with the quotes

    Spontaneously I got the most "news'n'views" from what Tomas said, I especially like how you cut his King Crimson quote

    That was great stuff. Thanks a lot Bernie for making this documentary happen.
    Invaluable insight into the minds of the musical geniuses that is MP!

    And I agree about the Manmower/Gutan i Skogen segment ending the doc. One of
    the highlights of recent MP live years! I remember saying in the Begynnelser thread
    that I thought that track worked well on its own without the visual accompaniment
    of the theater play. Maybe they read the forum, and took notice of that comment

    But it was quite blasphemous of Tomas to refer to Led Zeppelin as SHIT.

    @Tomcat - Yes! The King Crimson cut was brilliant. So well edited. And as a quote, this has to be one of my favourites, especially because, as @otherdemon says, it is so blasephmous to describe Led Zeppelin as lousy, crap.

    [SPOILER ALERT]
    Tomas: "My dad introduced me to Deep Purple, Jimi Hendrix ... and then he made one mistake: he went to put on Red by King Crimson ... and then after that, Led Zeppelin. That was a bad move. Led Zep was complete bullshit to me because Bill Bruford, King Crimson, [as an] 8-year-old drummer at home you're going bananas. And then you hear Led Zeppelin. This is lousy, crap - that's what I thought at that point, because nothing was as cool as King Crimson. So what you should do is Deep Purple, Sabbath, Zeppelin ... then Crimson."

    That was fast - just wanted to turn that right as well

    Honestly: After KC RED any drummer sounds lame, even Bonzo. That is what his otherwise obviously very passionate and wise dad did wrong = the order of introducing those two bands I love those little details.
