Saw these guys live back in 1997 and put on a great show.

Live rig included a Yamaha CS-80 and Roland SH-7 (among others).

Always thought their first album was their best, more raw and less refined.

I really love GusGus, kinda minimal but also very lush and wide. Arabian Horse is my favorite album from them I think.

There is a great series on youtube where they go over their live setup, uses a lot of doepfer both for fx and synth lines. This is the first part:

I first learned of gusgus from the Kex/KEXP performance.... I must have played this video hundreds of times at work throughout the years.. Soo GOOD!!!

Then I was stoked to find this one a few years later...

There is one more Gusgus video I can't find right now that completes my favorite live Gusgus videos... It's at some little coffee shop or hostel or somewhere and at the end of the performance they get this girl to come up and play with the modular CV faders and she is just controlling the cutoff and delay with her random hand movements, and it's a real cool performance...

Go Gusgus!!!! I also heard that they got their name from some movie where a woman in the movie had a thick accent of some sort and the woman was asking someone if they wanted couscous and it sounded like gusgus....

True or not? :despair:

The patch you've created in your brain is more challenging to modify than the patch you have on your modular.

Such a cool series. I'm watching it now. Starts out explaining MIDI but gets in depth by the second and third parts. Cool to see the elements that go into their set.

And is that Club of the Knob's Kazike introducing the band at the start of this video? That blew my mind a bit. Or maybe he has a twin brother?
