    Oh my, I'm especially impressed by Grandiosa (and I know it's the Norwegian God called 'pizza'), what a grand majestic piece of musicianship combined with delightful vocals!

    Excellent review from panorama.no - Motorpsycho vs. Einstürzende Neubauten.

    Would love to read this article, any chance of a translation made by some kind of soul? The online translation machines are too strange for me, feels like reading a bad translated manual of a toaster or something like that.

    A review from Mojo (which hardly says anything about the music at all):

    Motorpsycho: En konsert for folk flest
    3 stars out of 5

    Trondheim trio tell Norway's politicians to take care when speaking on their behalf.

    This monumental work examining the nature of being Norwegian is presented in grand style: both on CD and double album. The performance, from last July, is also captured on DVD. A centre pocket inside the gatefold sleeve contains a detailed book on the ideas behind the concert and its execution. Norway's Motorpsycho are no strangers to the grand gesture. In 2012 they collaborated with organist/composer Ståle Storløkken on The Death Defying Unicorn at Oslo's Opera House. Folk Flest reunites them in their hometown Trondheim; augmented by strings and a choir for a work inspired by the concept of "most people". Norway's politicians bandy the term to gain support by appealing to the notion of most people. Motorpsycho rip this apart. This driving, intense and soaring piece is best appreciated as an entity apart from the psychedelically inclined Motorpsycho of late.

    I'm reviving this thread because I just ordred the album. I don't have a vinyl record player, but I see there's a CD and DVD included, so no problem there. Can't wait to get my hands on this - looks like a lovely boxset. Having already heard the album I know what to expect in that regard, and personally I think it's absolutely sublime. Definitely one of their best, IMHO.

    I finally got around to exploring the music of French cultband Magma, youtubed around a bit starting at 22.00 yesterday, thought at first 'this must be the most terrible hippie-dippie hysteric opera menstruation music kind of earache thing' (mostly caused by the sound quality of the early seventies videoclip and their appearance), then getting fascinated (these guys are doing a thing of their own and know what they're doing) at around 1.00 a.m., and finally realised at about 4.00 a.m. that I will most probably dig deep into this almost 50 year old collective and it was time for sleep. ...woke up this morning and heard Konsert For Folk Flest resounding in my inner ear! Then I made the connection: Magma are yet another great band covering MPmaterial !(joking) (the more, the better, from both of them, and long may they reign!)

    @JERO - I'm glad to hear you found your way into Magma. They are a band who, for me, extraordinary is a perfectly apt description. I first heard them about five or six years ago when a friend posted a live video of De Futura online. I was mesmerised and decided I had to hear more. I managed to get a very cheap copy of a double live album and listened to Theusz Hamtaahk. That night I could hardly sleep. I was tossing and turning, having feverish visions of dark, dank caves on alien planets and woke up sweating. Every time I closed my eyes, the wierd chanting in my head set off more uncomfortable subconscious reactions. After that I was hooked. What music could do this? Although I never had as visceral an experience again, I still have flashbacks and often find the music transporting me to unusual places. I have managed to see Magma three times since then and they are superb live - really worth checking out. They're back on tour later this year but I don't see any dates in NL. Perhaps you can make it to Brussels.

    I also highly recommend checking out albums by a Magma offshoot called One Shot. They have many of the musical elements of Magma, but no vocals and somewhat more fusion oriented. They only released a few albums about ten years ago, but they are fantastic.

    I don't know if you will be able to access it or not, but here is a brilliant video from last year of Bent getting down to Magma:

    Thanx for that link, Punj, fun to watch! And I'll try to fulfill that adagium "every human should have seen Magma live at least once" in october Brussels. Today their boxset of 12 live cd's will arrive (that means I've allready spent my fun-budget for this month) and it's a perfect rainy day to further explore their stuff, while working on some of my paintings!Maybe this should have been filed under "Motorpsycho and..." but I now see the influence of Magma compositional structures on KFFF, which is certainly not a bad thing, so I posted within this thread.

    @JERO - I bought that live boxset last time I saw them. It's a real treasure trove. Have fun.
