UK appearances for Motorpsycho and Elephant9

Motorpsycho and Elephant9 team up for unique one-off London gig in late November.

Iconic collective Motorpsycho team up with nu-jazz rock masters Elephant9 for a not to be missed gig at London’s Bordeline .

Legendary Norwegian space-rock masters Motorpsycho was founded in 1989 in Trondheim, Norway, when mainstays Bent Sæther (bass, vocals) and Hans Magnus ”Snah” Ryan (guitar, vocals) were joined by drummer Kjell Runar ”Killer” Jenssen. Motorpsycho’s first album, ‘Lobotomizer’ , was released in 1991 after which Killer quit and Håkon Gebhardt took over the drums for many years to come. Their third album ‘Demon Box’ from 1993 is considered a cult classic but with the adventurous double album ‘Timothy´s Monster’ the year after, they reached a much bigger audience. It´s often referred to as the best Norwegian album ever, and it's getting its due 4CD DeLuxe treatment this autumn.

"A giddy kaleidoscope ride driven by a rapturous energy that throws sparks in all directions before doing its level best to shake the tree of life with the mammoth four-parter Gullible´s Travails."


"Reverts from extreme riffage to jazz-rock interludes, via Beatles-esque piano and storming West Coast harmonies, often in the same song."


Motorpsycho’s support act, Elephant9, is widely regarded as one of the hottest improv/jazz-rock on the contemporary Norwegian scene.
