Debut album from an
amazing quintet of musicians:
Hans Schakonat guitar, vocals (Schakonat Bluesband, Shine On)
Magnus Nilsson (MNFS) guitar, vocals (Shine
Dan Helgesen keyboard, vocals (Emrik, Clapton
Is God etc.)
Henrik Ohlin bass, vocals (ex-Queen Bee &nd
The Zydeco Amigos)
Mikael Stålbom drums, vocals
Previously called themselves 'The Knickedicks' and became a hit with the
audience at the Göteborg Blues Party 2004, doing impressive guitar
blues and soul. At that time they played well chosen covers only, but
on this debut album they do 100% original stuff. Influenced by other artists
of course (who isn't): Myself I believe I hear traces of Pink Floyd, Traffic,
Keith Emerson and The Cream. Lots of sounds, many pedals, many Marshall
amps, manylayered vocals. Lots of strong colours in all. But also a nicely
performed folk blues from Hans, featuring acoustic guitars and accordion.
And a sparsely arranged piano ballad from Henrik. Good stuff.
