Bushman's Revenge

Jitterbug

(Rune Grammofon)
US: 8 Jun 2010
UK: 24 May 2010

Comprised of three musicians who multi-task between a number of bands, including Puma, Shining and Lord Kelvin, Bushman’s Revenge is a supergroup in every sense of the word, especially when it comes to the robust Nordic post-rock scene. Recording live in the studio and directly to tape, the trio continues to extrapolate upon their unholy union of free jazz skronk, doom metal dearth and heady psychedelia on Jitterbug. It’s one expression of the impressive slab of intelligent heaviness that has become synonymous with the Rune Grammofon imprint in the last few years. If you are a fan of Supersilent, Puma, Motorpsycho, Deathprod, Shining or any of the other acts on this stellar label, you will definitely want to own this exceptional recording.
