Sensational - Paul & The Bad Kays (2011)

Fresh fish in the pond! Chicago styled outfit based in Göteborg and Uddevalla: Paul Alfredsson vocals/harp, Conny Aidanpää guitar, Erik Billander stand up bass, Tommy Johansson drums. Paul is also heard in Paul & The Blue Delivery, Erik & Tommy in Voxhall Blues.

Guitarist Conny can be heard on harp player Sture Elldin's only album (not for sale here) and is otherwise sadly underrecorded: a most stylish player. Using a.o. some beautiful but slightly unreliable Kay equipment (hence the bandname?).

"Sensational" is this quartet's debut album, that's true, but between them they have tons of live experience.
