The power trio goes cold fusion in the magnificent inside-outside sound of
Bushman’s Revenge. If the Jimi Hendrix Experience, the Tony Williams Lifetime, and Sonny Sharrock had a baby together, its unholy midnight laments
might sound a lot like this youngish Oslo-based band named after a particularly scorching South African hot sauce. While the manifest vibe is that of a ferocious Motörhead or Sabbath pummel, the latent material recaptures ’60s and ’70s free jazz in all its roiling, droning intensity. Consisting of Even Helte Hermansen
(guitar), Rune Nergaard (bass), and Gard Nilssen (drums), Bushman operates under an “everybody solos, nobody solos” policy that has served them well over the course of seven increasingly ferocious albums,
including their forthcoming Thou Shalt Boogie!.
