    I have everything Mats Morgan...one of my favorite bands. Got to see them at Progday in 2004, it was the greatest Progday ever for me! Saw then a couple of days later in Rochester NY, with about 6 people in the audience.

    ^^ Wow, I didn't realize they'd played Progday! Wish I'd been there. Did they hang around at all?

Mesmerizing from start to finish.

    I plan to pick up a few more of their CD releases soon. Probably the Live CD will be next. I see on the Bandcamp page there are some additional live releases that may be digital only.
    I would recommend their live album from 2014. I have seen them live twice, and the last time with this quartet. The greatest thing with their live stuff is Mats's wild improvisations. His musical imagination is just incredible.

    Well they did have a vendors table Jed, but don't recall seeing them around much after that. Mats Oberg is blind and Jimmy Agren, Morgan's brother and guitarist in the band, looked after him, so I guess it didn't lend itself to socializing. I did get to meet them and chat in Rochester. I was moved by the fact that Mats would hold your hand while conversing...

    While we are here anyone know the story behind the persistent use of "Advokaten" (lawyers) in MM song titles? Maybe they had some really bad experiences with same?

    Thanks - I don't do Facebook, so didn't see this. The thing doesn't seem to be on Morgan's web shop yet, but it is up for pre-order at my favourite record store in Finland, Record Shop X, with a 19th November release date:

    Very nice price, too.
