    The boys opened the show with song for a bro before Ole entered the stage. I found the setlist very diverse and well built, with both lots of new songs as well as old ones in new form with the band. It was lovely to see the chemistry and the way you could see they admired each other while they had their solo parts and such. Still very much an open rehearsal, as they had to do some tracks over again a couple of times to get right, but it will probably be fine by the shows in Oslo. Could tell Ole was a bit nervous, but I'm sure he enjoyed it a lot as well. Was pretty sweet.

    It was labeeled a rehearsal and it was, I think Ole P. wasa bit nervous as mentioned. Two songs had to be restarted a few times because he forgot the lyrics. Otherwise it was a good evening, the band seem to have agood times, Bent was directin Ole P a lot. Ole P. was a bit more like the lovingly parody of himself done by Jon Niklas Rønning.Great evening. The only "negative" part was the band on its most intense drowned out the singing/lyrics a bit when they waa as their more intense. Good ending with strings on tape and the band left and OP ended up alone on stage.
    Some crapy pics


    I really likeed the parts where only Snah and OP did perform.

    They played for about 1:50 so yes, there were room for some upgraded goldies.

    Thank you guys for the report and pictures on this. So good to see a potted (pot?) plant up there on stage with them. I always put mine on top of the speakers, as it is a known fact plants enjoy sound vibrations, especially from music with powerful bass, so it's clear they must be psychonauts by nature. Yep, plants & psychonauts, and music to make the juices flow.
    Guess MP won't be taking O.P. along touring Europe, but I hope there will be some registration of the gig coming up, I haven't yet gotten into the music yet a lot (knee deep in VanDerGraaf territory these weeks) but these guys will always come up with something sincere & worthwhile.

    I interpreted the potted plant (some bambooish thing, not pot ) and the coach on stage as a means to emphasise the rehearsal feeling of the gig. It worked nicely.

    Indeed! I prefer a stage setting with props like these to the nowadays in-your-face lightshows with sometimes barely noticable background projection of recent MP gigs I attended. There was a Dutch band in the eighties called Sammy America's MAM that used to perform in pyjamas with table lamps as stage-lighting, it used to give a truly homey and absurdistic effect (this band live kicked ass by the way).
    ThorEgil; I don't know a lot about photography but I'm curious, gigs where the audience is bombed with light instead of the band performing on stage, is that problematic when you're working to get good images? (or maybe digital technique solves that?)
