    Wee! Too bad they didn't give an indication for the release-date. But I'm hoping it will be before the Opera concerts in November!

    this is a cool thing. I think i read in Beat or Rock Furore (old norwegian music magazines) that when they came back from Stckhlm they hated the mix or something so they had to go to a studio in Oslo or something and "remix" it. Anyone who know that story ?? Anyway i hope the original mix will be on the album to listen to how it was.

    this is soooo good news!
    so what can we expect besides the mighty blissard? I guess the b-sides from the nerve t, manmower eps etc will be present, and the ditched version of the record.
    That should still leave one full CD of music

    Aaah, I can't wait! IMO this is one of the best records ever made. (Yeah, ever).

    Yep, the mixed Blissard immediately after recording it. When they listened do it a couple of weeks later they hated it, and they remixed it.

    With 4 cds it's very likely that we'll get to hear the "original" mix for the first time.

    Yeay! I'm still hoping/guessing that part of the box will be the "lost album" recorded at Kunstakademiet in Trondheim (which is also the source of several Blissard-era (and later?!) B-sides, so I really think those will show up on this release)!

    And yeah, the original mix! That would be very interesting!

    It is said there is a lot more music from the sessions that yielded one of my favourite (sounding) songs "Mad Sun". These are the Kunstakademiet-sessions you're referring to, right Rolf? Looking forward to the package - whatever it contains.

    I think it will be wishful thinking that a vinyl release will be done. It would take what, eight records to issue the four cd's? Would be grand though...

    Greetings,

    Thomas

    I think that's what Rolf's referring to. See what Bent has to say about these sessions at the end of this page

    About the original mix of Blissard: I remember Snah commenting somewhere that Blissard was troublesome to make, because the original mix had several guitar parts that were out of tune/poorly played/etc. And that's why they had to re-mix/overdub in an Oslo studio before releasing the album we all know & love. So I'm not sure if it will actually be released.

    Other than that, the b-sides from the singles, the hidden bonustrack in front of Blissard, and possibly the Jörg Mager Trio single are tracks I guess will be on this new Blissard.

    The what?

    Bent, Snah & Deathprod fooling around at the Blissard sessions. Deathprod did however release the single on his Morals & Dogma boxset earlier, so I'm not 100% sure if it will be on the expanded Blissard.

    This was a christmas "card"/greetings from the Designcompany Subtopia to its customers/friends. I belive you can listen to some of it befor the Blissard cd starts (Track zero, but not on all pressings I belive) but need to confirm it as I havent listened to it for many years. They also performed live at one point, I belive I still got the ticket for that performance somewhere

    The cover on my Jörg Mager 7" is different from the one linked here. Its like the one on page 39 in this link: http://www.subtopia.no/portfolio/recordsleeves/subtopia_recordsleeves.pdf

    It is numbered by hand with pencil (25 ex or something like that) and has a Christmas greeting text on the back side of the cover, I think.

    Is the blue one the official version and the other one the Christmas card version?

    Never seen that version, mine is like Knuts version. I think this was done in an edition of 300.

    Actually, if you guys have heard the little intermezzo between In The Family and Un Chien D'espace on AADAP: That's actually a snippet from A Shortcut To The Stars.

    The hidden track in front of Blissard is neither of those two songs. Funny info: I have a CD-version of Blissard that has 8 1/2 mins of silence in front of Blissard instead of the bonustrack! Is that a rare or a faulty version?

    Ok, as I said it was long time since I've heard the pre-songs Blizzard track. What pressing is the cd you've got. not sure if the Stickman version had the pre-song track. Have to check when I'm home for work

    It's an early Columbia/Sony pressing, purchased shortly after it was released.

    @otherdemon - this is described at Discogs

    Strangely enough I have what claims to be the same edition, starting straight at sinful,wind-borne - at least on my CD player.
    According to Discogs, the only edition containing the bonus track is the first Stickman release (PSYCHOBABBLE 003).

    can confirm by owning.

    I bet it'll reappear on this 4CD version...

    Ok. But it's still strange than when I rewound it on my CD-player, there's 8 1/2 mins of silence there instead of the bonustrack. But nevermind, I have it on mp3, and it's not really anything special...

    Hej! Psychobubble 003. Put the CD in. Before it starts with *Sinful, wind-borne* you press fast rewind and go all the way back to 8.35. It´s a pretty quite intro with piano, fender rhodes, percussion and acoustic guitar. Nothing special but a nice intro. I am also excited about the Blissard 4 CD box, but on the other hand, I have not listened too often to the whole Timothys Monster box either. I prefer the original. Let´s just hope that there will be some outtakes and maybe a life version of S.T.G.

    That's really weird. No one else here with a Sony pressing to confirm? Maybe it was a joke against teh evil corporates.

    Being Norwegian, I was pretty sure I had the Sony/Columbia release, but it turns out it's on Birdnest Records, licenced by Stickman. #bird102cd. It has the hidden track.

    I have two versions of Blissard on CD.

    The Sony/Columbia version (col 483786 2) has the secret track before track 1.

    The 2CD version of Angels and Daemons at Play (Blissard as a bonus disc), Australian company Green Balloon (GB 008) has no secret track before track 1, only silence instead.

    And again I'm happily proven wrong!

    From the Stickman site:

    17.09.2012 Coming soon: "Blissard" Deluxe Reissue

    After the extensive "Timothy's Monster" deluxe edition, we're now in the final stages of putting together the next Motorpsycho release. The upcoming "Blissard" deluxe edition will also contain 4 CDs with the original album and lots of "lost" material from the various sessions leading up to the release of the album. Expect to be surprised.

    The release date is not yet 100% confirmed, but we're aiming for late November. And news of the vinyl version will be following too!

    Grtz,

    Thomas
