    Wow, I wonder how Bent will handle the vocals on Grindstone, will he be able to sing the Golden Core after that, and will Anneli Drecker join in?

    I think this is the longest album ? (96:49 min), will certainly be longer live, 2 hours + ...?
    It would have been kind of a bummer if they played 8 Soothing Songs for Rut or Barracuda...

    Well, they have 5 months to figure out if they need additional guests or whatever

    My guess is that Snah will probably have more vocal duties than just On My Pillow. And he did sing Grindstone earlier (Roadwork 2 and the So What Oslo Bootleg DVD)

    Anyway, good news to start off this week. And this Friday they're starting their tour with Supersilent in Drammen!

    I'm not so sure it will be that much longer live. CD1 doesn't really allow THAT much room for jamming, so that one will probably be by the book. CD2 on the other hand might be stretched out a bit... Just under 2 hours live, maybe? But in a festival context, that is very long!

    Taken into account the current band, and the musical state they are in, having them play Timothy's Monster feels kind of like many opportunities lost.

    I always saw Timothy's Monster as a collection of good songs, rather than an epic masterpiece tending towards a concept album, which is how I see Demon Box and Angels And Daemons At Play, and to a certain extent Trust Us.

    This is a great opportunity lost to finally perform Mountain live again, and to revisit the old metal songs together with an out-of-this-world metal drummer. Both vocalists being in the best form of their lives, I think Bent would totally have pulled off Sheer Profundity and Feedtime. Snah could also sing them, he proved that already when Loaded was in the setlist in 2004.

    This was also a great opportunity to perform ALL of Angels And Daemons, and finally tag Have Spacesuit, Will Travel to the end of Un Chien, where it has been missing all these years.

    Trust Us has already been revisited a lot by the new lineup, so it was maybe the least essential of my three choices. But through the last three years together with Kenneth we have also seen some of the strongest performances of Trust Us songs such as Superstooge, Psychonaut, 577 and Vortex Surfer, and the bands new musical direction seems to own a lot to this part of their musical past.

    All three records have a huge chunck of the progressive, heavy and jam elements which fits so well with the Motorpsycho of today, and which I do not see so much in the majority of the songs on Timothy's Monster.

    I am afraid that the first hour of the concert is gonna be a nice stroll down memory lane with many good, little, five minutes songs, rather than a wild ride of awesome jams and rejuvenited masterpieces.

    Being the old, travelling geezer I am, it is of course the songs not performed in a long time which are attached to the biggest excitement: Leave It Like That, A Shrug & A Fistful, Beautiful Sister and Wearing Yr Smell.

    That said, Grindstone is for sure going to be the most exciting song to me at Øya, together with The Wheel. Luckilly, these songs have got all of the elements above: They are progressive and heavy, and the band can jam it out if they choose to. In fact, when the concert finally reaches sides four and five of the LP I will probably think I am in heaven anyway.

    @The Other Anders: This isn't the last gig ever, they still have a good many years to climb the Mountain and travel with the Space Dog. That said, I voted Demon Box #1 just to hear Mountain live

    I feel the same Anders, was much more excited last week when DB was still No.1 - but however it's a great chance all the same... let's see at what day mp will play and if a full festival-pass is needed!

    Bent is saying about playing TM:

    I really need a teleport to get back to who we were and how we tought back then.
    But it will be interesting for both MP and the fans for sure.

    Anders: I couldn't agree more. This is a HUGE opportunity lost. Virtually ALL the elements of Timothy's Monster have been explored in and out over the past 15-16 years, while there is so much magic from especially Demon Box that has been locked up for the same amount of time.

    Lars Lien - for one - agrees with us.

    I think it would be an even greater oppurtunity lost if Timothys Monster didn´t win! To me it´s one of the most extravagant, fascinating and beautiful albums ever made. Just imagine Bent walking on stage to kick off 2 hours of heavenly music with one of Motorpsychos greatest acoustic pieces; Feel.
    Then; Trapdoor, kill some day, on my pillow, wearing yr smell, Now its time to skate, Watersounds, The wheel, Grindstone and The golden core!

    I can`t wait!

    Isn't that exactly why we need to hear Timothy's Monster? Too hear a side of the band that hasn't been touched upon for a while?

    I for one hope they'll finally play "President Block", as it's up there with the best songs that came out of the TM recordings, even though it's not an original MP song. And YES, Bent! I'M that dude shouting for it at the end of every concert I'm at! LOL
    It totally pisses him off sometimes, I think...

    Sorry Anders, this is quite silly.

    a) Timmy isn't any less epically sprawling than your beloved Demon Box and the latest records with the current line up.

    b) Considering this, we can't have the slightest idea what this current line up will make of it but...

    c) ...it WILL be amazing. If you'll attend the show, you'll be blown away crying. That's the most obvious part of it all.

    d) I can't go godammit.

    This being a new ROADWORKS entry would be a dream.

    This is - by far - the best choice. For me their best album! I was a bit fed up with all the mega jamming during the last tour, so for me it would be heaven to attend that gig. But I won't be able to go there. That said: Is anybody going to record this in the best possible way (might it be a Roadwork later or not). I am thinking about Anders and all the wonderful recordings he made for the community in the past years. Last time I talked to him at the Schlachthof in Bremen he told me, he got tired of taping. Such a shame!

    Anders: I listen to your Amsterdam recording from the BH/BC tour still a LOT!

    Be: Øyafestivalen usually records the biggest concerts themselves, just like the Motorpsycho concert in 2006. So I guess it's a huge possibility that we will get a great video with sound out of this. If you're lucky they may stream the concert too.

    @Rattlesnake: They usually stream most of the stuff on NRKs website, they did with the 06 gig, and it's possible to record the streams

    exactly my sentiments.

    I wonder when they'll play so I can get my day ticket for Timothy's live. I bet Air will headline wednesday and Pavement thursday. My guess is that MP will headline friday or saturday as there's not any obvious headliners those days. I really want to see Air and Pavement too, but don't feel like spending more than one day at Øya, and Timothy is my priority this year.
