Live at Roadburn – Eulogy for the Late Sixties ist ein Live-Album der norwegischen Band Ulver. Es erschien am 12. April 2013 bei Roadburn Records.

Entstehung und Veröffentlichung[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten]

Ulver nahmen im Herbst 2008 und Sommer 2011 in Oslo Coverversionen von Rock-Songs der späten 1960er Jahre auf, die im Mai 2012 schließlich auf dem Album Childhood’s End erscheinen sollten. Im April des Jahres waren Ulver beim Tilburger Roadburn Festival eingeladen, um ihre Interpretation des Psychedelic Rock live zu präsentieren. Genau ein Jahr später wurde ein Mitschnitt veröffentlicht. Er war von Anders Møller in den Osloer Crystal Canyon Studios abgemischt und von Jaime Gomez Arellano in den Londoner Orgone Studios gemastert worden.

Rezeption[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten]

„I was placing a lot of faith in Ulver […], but ultimately I was to be disappointed. They were playing [a] set of 60s psyche covers – Chocolate Watch Band, the 13th Floor Elevators, the Electric Prunes etc – and while the band themselves had a pretty good stab at recreating the sounds of the time, the alchemical tools to make it something special seemed just out of frontman Kristoffer Rygg’s reach. Ulver’s restless reinvention is rarely less than compelling, so it was unusual to see their ambitions outstrip their ability.“

Jamie Thomson: The Quietus[1]

„There were no glacial reworkings and relatively little electronica, just a band cranking out versions of obscure sixties tunes that they clearly dig very much. […] Ulver were not the dark, mysterious shadowy figures of old, but a bunch of musicians having a good time in front of a crowd who clearly were not willing to accept them as such […]. In fact the only real criticism I have is that they really shouldn’t have bothered with their slightly tedious, unfocussed freak-out-style ‘jam’ encore […].“

Paul Robertson: The Sleeping Shaman[2]
