Børge ”Biceps” Jensen & Frank Birch
Year of release
Børge Biceps has a firm grip on the rhythm. The inspiration from English R&B rings clearly through and as a listener, fond memories of idols such as John Mayall, Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce pops up. The track “Shine On” could’ve been taken directly from a Cream album, with its long, unison passages. Pianist Esben Just (Christensen) makes a mark of his own here and there, with a jolly honky-tonk piano and a lone, awkward ragtime piece. “Easy Your Mind” has that unmistakable scent of late night bar about it, which is a priceless ingredient in blues-music. The song is written by Esben Just together with Børge Biceps. Apart from that, all songs on this album are written by Børge Biceps.
Børge “Biceps” Jensen uses humour and style-awareness with finesse
Børge Biceps thrives well in a band-context on the album LIMBO STATION. He is an excellent slide-guitarist and here he gets, especially by the aid of drummer Lars “Mitch” Fishermann, a rhythmic foundation, that is both lively and alert. This way, tracks like “The Automobile Song”, “The Girl I Love” and the fine instrumental “Marooned” are allowed space for humour, juicy phrases and well-disposed, but flexible guitar-work. Biceps uses humour and style-awareness with finesse and on top of that, Biceps and band has a fine awareness, that blues-music is more than singing and long guitar-solos. It is also rhythm and daring hints, a sort of mental shake in the hips.
