Recorded during a show at the Storyville jazz club in Molde in May 2012, this could very well be Bushman's Revenge's finest recorded effort during their 10 years as a band. Bringing new meaning to the concept of loose but tight, they blend the freedom of jazz with the energy of rock in the most convincing of ways as they race through numbers from all their previous four Rune Grammofon albums, taking no prisoners along the ride. Drummer Gard Nilsen and bassist Rune Nergaard are just as comfortable with laying down a thundering rock-steady beat as with moving freely within jazz terrains, while guitarist Even Helte Hermansen, in some of his most ecstatic soloing, seems to get into a state where the guitar itself takes over all control. Impressive stuff all around and a glowing testament to why this band have become a very attractive live act. Bushman's Revenge was founded by Even and Gard back in 2003 in their hometown of Skien, a couple of hours south of Oslo, while Rune joined from the northern town of Bodø. Even was a member of "blackjazzers" Shining and grew up listening to Kiss, Pantera, Sepultura, Faith No More, Frank Zappa, and John Coltrane, while Gard and Rune met at the Jazz Academy in Trondheim -- breeding ground for musicians like Arve Henriksen, Ståle Storløkken, Nils Petter Molvær and many more. Gard also plays with pop sensation Susanne Sundfør and in Puma with Øystein Moen (Jaga Jazzist) and young guitar experimentalist Stian Westerhus.
