Skadedyr – Kongekrabbe
Kongekrabbe is the democratic/anarchistic band Skadedyr’s debut album. They have swiftly gained a reputation as one of Norway’s most exciting ensembles. Skadedyr consists of a total of 12 musicians and an even larger assortment of instruments. With a brass section, guitars, keyboards, vocals, two drummers, strings and an accordion, the musical images and narratives just pour out of them.
The album was recorded live in the studio in the course of only one day with producer Andreas Mjøs (Jaga Jazzist), and bears witness to an extraordinarily coherent and original band with an appreciation of both the psychedelic, progressive and outrageous and the earthy and melodious aspects of music. The musicians in Skadedyr accept no limits and deny themselves nothing.
