Shining: One One One

Shining has moved from "Blackjazz" to orange "One One One" (Universal 2013), but it´s still dark music! And it´s tight, and brutal and more rock than jazz. They covered "21st century schizoid man" on Blackjazz, here they could have done "Ace of spades", because they are more Motorhead than King Crimson now. It´s great music, and should be played very loud of course, but I must admit I prefer my Shining in smaller servings.

Shining is (copied from Wikipedia):
Jørgen Munkeby – Sax, guitar, Akai EWI, vocals etc. (since 1999)
Torstein Lofthus – Drums (since 1999)
Tor Egil Kreken – Bass (since 2008)
Bernt Moen – Keys (since 2008)
Håkon Sagen – Guitar (since 2010)

They are touring right now, but I don´t know if I dare go to see them once more.
Here are some pictures from concerts in Molde and Bergen.
