    You can get a lot of their vinyl-releases via the european ebay-sites. The german one, for instance:

    You may also want to try GEMM:

    thanks Knoot. will definitely look into that euro ebay site.

    I think one of the reason Im in love with this band so much is b/c i never heard of them before, nor any of my friends and its just like what we listen to in America.

    The fact of finding a new foreign artist (to me) is just jaw dropping.
    and i dont know where to find other new bands with this freedom, improv music style playing.
    So if anyone has any other similar bands they would like to turn me on to, Please leave me a list or name a band you like.

    -- Motorpsycho come play USA. -- You'll do great here.

    I'm not sure if Motorpsycho have any plans for a US tour. Sure, they've been getting some attention lately (like David Fricke giving a really positive review of their latest album), but they've stated that logistically it's hard to put together such a tour.

    The last time they toured the US was in 2008 on the Little Lucid Moments tour (and even then they only played 3 cities, Columbus, Louisville and Chicago)

    But nice to get new fans aboard! Motorpsycho has a huge & diverse discography that's just waiting there to be indulged in

    Their current distributor in US is Forced Exposure. And they sell the vinyl editions as well (though I haven't checked the prices).

    Welcome on board! Stickman records is a fine (+ most official) source as well of course:

    Yeah all the Vinlys I looked at were Real expensive
    and Steresofa, I did listen to Heavy Metal Fruit on youtube loved it its great. After listing to The Death Defying Unicorn I had to buy it that cd trips me right out.

    and Supernat, thanks for the Read, Will look into that. when I get back from my vacation in 2weeks No tv no computers, out in the wood up in the mountains.

    out in the wood up in the mountains

    wooooh have fun. i love doin that. where in the US do you live?

    There has been quite some dispute about the Unicorn here, since it is a bit of an odd album. One of many, though. I find it amazing. I'm not so keen with Heavy Metal Fruit. More with (as most fans) Timothy's Monster and Trust Us. Also Little Lucid Moments is one of my top 3.

    Welcome to the show . Just to let you know , another recommended album for hardrock (Heavy Metall iz a poze , hardt rock iz a laifschteil (lifestyle)) anti-prog Psychonauts is DEMON BOX , for me THE ULTIMATE MOTHER OF EVIL and the only real path to their musical universe .

    Im living in Baltimore, Maryland. I agree with you Snaut but thats why i like the album I love how its an odd and atypical . You guys should listen to a band from my hometown that happen to lived only 20mins away from me. Animal Collective, you could go on youtube, Itunes, or where ever you get music from. My favorite albums are Strawberry Jam , Merriweather Post Pavilion, ODDSAC is a pretty psychcdelic music video from the band that runs a little over a hour. Its another weird thing. most ppl wont enjoy unless you like that sorta stuff

    Some minor updates:
    - "Your Headlights Are On" are now "Broen" and even better, the singer moved on to "Highasakite"
    - "Angelica's Elegy" are releasing their first EP this week, and playing in Trondheim!
    - Martin Hagfors is drummed by Kenneth Kapstad
    - "Soup" are not managed by Snah, as far as I know. But he produced and played guitar on their latest album Children of E.L.B.
    - "Jaga Jazzist" the horn section played on the Fishtank album and torued with Motorpsycho.
    - "Shining" main man Jørgen Munkeby was part of the mentioned horn section. He can be seen playing the flute on Motorpsycho's Rockpalast gig. He has also credited Motorpsycho for inspiring him to develop this fantastic Jazz/Metal music of Shining.
    - "22" is an incredible band.
    - "Elephant9" are also releasing a new album this week, and playing trondheim in a few weeks.
    - "Stian Westerhus" noice/impro guitarman and a known collaborateur with Motorpsycho, also new album this week. Has played multiple gigs with motorpsycho. And is also sharing stage with KK in "Monolithic".

    All these are truly great bands - what do we really need all these British and American bands for?

    Sweet extra info. I really dont know what we need the British and American bands for. I mean that Norway is way ahead of a lot of the big "music-nations" when it comes to developing music in new directions and trying to blend genres to find new sounds. And the most fun part: A lot of these bands are influenced by Motorpsycho. You can easily hear it on a tune or another.
