    From memory…

    The Waning
    Kingdom of Oblivion
    Little Lucid Moments
    United Debased
    In Every Dream Home
    The Transmutation of Cosmoctopus Lurker
    N.O.X.
    Like Chrome
    ———
    Stardust
    Big Surprise
    Feel

    total time approx 2:20

    Highlights: LLM final section noise/weird-out, Cosmoctopus (awesome) and N.O.X. (as expected). Downers: Snah vocals even worse than usual (but Bent OK), missing Ny Lang and ny Halvlang. But it’s inspiring to see the band put on a show
    of material almost exclusively from the last two albums.

    Thank you for the setlist and review - good to see "United Debased" being performed again

    I’d say it was a good, but not outstanding show. Bent and Snah both seemed maybe a little tired, possibly after draining studio sessions in the preceding week. So it felt a little bit like they were, if not exactly «going through the motions», then doing the job but not having the extra gear to shift into.

    However, it shows how far they have come as a band with Tomas. The show consisted of nearly exclusively Tomas-era material, and there was not one attempt at crowd-pleasing save for the encore. Pretty uncompromising stuff, even though the KoO material leans a bit too much towards the stonery heavy rock sound and too little psychonautisms for my taste, so it got a wee bit samey sounding during the first hour. Some songs were fairly shaky during the vocal parts, at least the ones sung by Snah (sorry Snah, love you to bits but last night his vocals were awful even by his standards), but picked up as soon as the instrumental parts took over. As far as a band playing together, they are as good or maybe even better than ever, not least due to Tomas who delivered beyond requirements again and again.
    BTW, Like Chrome was sung by Snah which was unusual. Really missed Bent’s voice on that one.

    N.O.X. was just as amazing live as I hoped, really another stone cold Motorpsycho classic.

    It also speaks volumes that the band can deliver a show with absolutely no Geb-era classics (except for the encore) and yet the only thing I was craving was for more new songs! Really bummed we didn’t get Azrael or Ancient Astronauts (presuming they are Ny Lang/Halvlang) after they had played one or both of them at all(?) gigs this summer, or any of the new acoustic ones.

    The gig took place outdoors in a museum courtyard on a hill in the middle of Tønsberg. I guess they had to confer to a curfew, as they started on the spot at 20:00 and played a main set of 2 hours, then quieted down with an acoustic encore.

  7. Thank you Bernie. Honestly, from what I see I would say it was a really good concert. The Waning is nailed perfectly, LLM over the top. I cant really say something about Snahs singing, as in the released clips he did not sing much. But his guitarsound and playing was incredible

    The playing was top notch, make no mistake. And there were plenty of moments of absolute greatness, and overall a very high level. N.O.X. was off the chart great. Just missing the last «X» factor that happens once in every 20 or 30 gigs. That, and Snah’s vocals....

    Thanks Bernie!

    Btw: can you change the order and info in the titles?

    From

    MP live at -Haugar—TONSBERG 14-8-21 NOX

    to

    NOX, MP live, Haugar, Tonsberg, 14-8-21

    as the most important information is the title of the track and should be listed first.

    Using uppercase letters for location has no value, similar for adding quotes
    e.g. "Grieghallen" -> Grieghallen.

    When sorting by folder name, the way it is dated is not appropriate. I'm happy with the way he's doing it now.
    As for the individual files, it would be even more helpful if the titles were listed, but I don't want to burden him with that much.

    Snah is obviously preparing for the possible accoustic album in appearance also. Without beard, mustache only, and receding, if long hair, putting on a few corona kilos he reminds me strongly of middle-aged David Crosby
