Elephant9 with Reine Fiske - Psychedelic Backfire II

SKU 05-RCD 2207CD
Do you like the sound of the Hammond organ? Do you like the sound of really great musicians pushing the Hammond to its limits in power quartet formation (organ/guitar/bass/drums)? Think Tony Williams Lifetime, Jon Lord in 1972 era Deep Purple, Steamboat Switzerland, Deus Ex Machina, etc etc etc.
“Elephant9 was already established as a vital live favorite on the Norwegian scene -- due to a number of energetic and enthusiastically received concerts -- before their highly-acclaimed debut album Dodovoodoo was released in May 2008. 11 years later, and after another four studio albums, it was about time to properly document this live force in the form of not only one album, but two double albums.
Indeed, the very limited, vinyl-only Live at the BBC album was released in 2011, but this time the band booked a four-day residency at the intimate Kampen Bistro in Oslo and invited old friend Reine Fiske -- a vital presence on previous albums Atlantis and Silver Mountain -- along for two of the evenings.
Reine Fiske has on several occasions proved a perfect guest for the Elephant9 trio, both on record and on stage. Never one to fight for attention, with Elephant9 he's a true equal given the opportunity to express himself both as a soloist as well as a rhythm guitarist, his interaction with Ståle Storløkken's keyboards creating some magic sequences. Fiske is a founder member of Dungen and Träden, the continuation of the legendary Swedish group Träd, Gräs Och Stenar.”
