Det skandaløse Orkester are back with their second album

(Apollon Records Prog)

Det Skandaløse Orkester from Bergen, Norway, are known for being very unpopular. But now they have made an album that hopefully will put an end to all that. This sensational album is entitled “Tenk om noen ser deg”, which can be translated to “What if someone saw you”. And that is the main underlying theme of all the lyrics; the self-conscious fear of what others may think about your behaviour and appearance.

The music is eclectic and hard to categories. It opens with a 10 minutes long prog epic, divided into four tracks. The rest of the album consists of a genre blend of funk, kabaret, jazz/rock and classical music. It is ugly and beautiful, funny and scary.

If you like the music of Frank Zappa, King Crimson, Tom Waits, Mr. Bungle, Pink Floyd, Igor Stravinsky, Spike Jones, Walt Disney, Beverly Hills 90210 and Twin Peaks, you will most likely find something on this album for you to enjoy.  As far as we know, something similar has never been done with norwegian lyrics, combined with this attitude before. Whether you love it or hate it, this is a unique album that should not be ignored.

The digital booklet includes more info with descriptions of all the tunes in english and everything. For direct translations of the lyrics, go to: www.skandalose.no
