Notes

Issued in 4 individually printed card sleeves in a clamshell cardboard box with a 24-panel double-sided insert with a poster on one side and credits on the other, and a 32-page booklet with extensive liner notes and detailed recording information about all the tracks.

1-01 to 1-10, 4-01 to 4-04, 4-06 to 4-08 were mastered by Audun Strype at Stryke Audio, December 1995.
2-01 to 3-11, 4-05, 4-09 to 4-20 were mastered by Helge Sten at Audio Virus Lab, August 2012.
Transfers, editing and PQ coding for 2-01 to 4-20 by Helge Sten at Audio Virus LAB August 2012.

Blissard Vol. 1 - The Original Album recorded at Atlantis Grammofon ab, Stockholm, September 25 - October 9, 1995. Engineers: Pieter 'Pidah' Kloos & Helge Sten. Additional recording/overdubs at Rodeløkka Studio, Oslo, October 27-29, 1995. Engineer: Rune Jørgensen.
Mixed at LydLab, Oslo, December 5 - 10, 1995. Engineer: Ulf Holand.

"Fool's Gold" recorded on 4-track in Nürnberg, May 1994 by HMR & BS.
Mixed at Audio Virus LAB in Trondheim, 1995.

"Nathan Daniel's Tune From Hawaii" recorded & mixed at Audio Virus LAB in Trondheim, fall 1994 by Deathprod. Tech note: All sounds and loops created by manipulating a 1956 Danelectro U2 guitar through a Roland 201 Space Echo. Recorded and arranged with an Akai S1000HD sampler and an Alesis MMT8 sequencer.

Blissard Vol. 2 - When The World Sleeps (The KiT Sessions, 1994) recorded at KiT (Kunstakademiet i Trondheim), December 1 - 6, 1994. Engineered by Helge Sten.
2-05 to 2-07: overdubs and mix at LydLab, Oslo, February (2-05, 2-06) and April (2-07), 1995 by Ulf Holand.
2-01 to 2-04: mixed at Audio Virus LAB, Oslo, August 2012 by Helge Sten.

Vocals for "Flick of the Wrist" recorded in Trondheim August 2012, as there was no more room on the original 8-track multitrack tape to do it back in the day.

"When the World Sleeps" recorded straight to an Akai S1000HD sampler at the Audio Virus LAB, Trondheim, fall 1994. Additional overdubs recorded at KiT, December 1994.

"7th Dream" is essentially a 4-track homerecording by Bent. This was recorded in his living room late summer 1994.
Additional overdubs recorded at KiT, December 1994.

Blissard Vol. 3 - The Pidah Mixes recorded and mixed at Atlantis Grammofon ab, Stockholm, September 25 - October 9, 1995. Engineered by Pieter 'Pidah' Kloos and Helge Sten.

"The Wheel" recorded at VPRO radio, April 12, 1994.

"Pale Day": Deathprod's third and final vocal performance with Motorpsycho was recorded at the Audio Virus LAB by him alone. Adding another layer of otherness to the Motorpsycho universe, this shows what an extraordinary broad palette the band had to draw from at this point in their career.
Tech note: Recorded and arranged with an Akai S1000HD sampler, Alesis MMT8 sequencer and a Roland 201 Space Echo.

"Heaven and Hell" was recorded in Pidah Kloos' Void studio in Eindhoven on an offday in May during the 1995 spring tour.

"Sterling Says" was played and recorded by HMR and BS at Snah's place, October '95. Mixed by Deathprod at the new, improved Audio Virus LAB, Oslo, March 1996. Words by Matt Burt, drum solo by some unknown hero, but taken from a cassette we bought off an Indian restaurant in Tønsberg. Analog distortion is a beautiful thing!

4-09 to 4-14: Previously unreleased work sketches recorded on Gebs old ITT cassette player or Tandberg 1200X reel-to-reel at the Dora rehearsal room. These tapes have not been stored under optimal conditions and were never intended for release in the first place, so the recording quality is somewhat lacking.
We hope that the musical contents justifies their inclusion and that these demos may shed som light on the process leading up to the recording of Blissard. "Never Judge" begat "You Lied", "Manmower" and "The Nerve Tattoo", "Silver Tongue" included bits that later ended up in both "Stalemate" and "In the Family", "Dave Gave Up" sired "The Nerve Tattoo" and "Baby Jesus", and "That Dying Breed" donated parts to "'Drug Thing'" and "Stalemate" as well. "Baby Scooter" and "In the Midst of All That" were simply forgotten...

4-15 was recorded at Endless Sound, Oslo, February 27, 1995.

4-16 to 4-20 recording date: 08.10.95.
