Spidergawd

Spidergawd

An unique brand of boogie

It’s the worst thing that could happen in today’s music-business: That the best bands are not the most popular, known by everyone. But if you really like rock’n’roll you will definitely love Spidergawd – a band that stands for everything we love about guitar driven music.

The Norwegian four-piece has it all: the swagger, the wildness, the danger that real rock’n’roll celebrates these days far too seldom. Helmed by Per Borten – a natural born singer with the perfect croon and a gifted guitar-player – Spidergawd has the best rhythm-section you get these days. It’s Motorpsycho’s bassist Bent Sæther and drummer Kenneth Kapstad. Both lay down masterful and relentless grooves. The line-up is rounded out by baritone-saxophone-player Rolf Martin Snustad who ads a certain soulful and jazzy edge to the mix.

And the magic is surely in the mix: Spidergawd brilliantly blend old blues-styles, heavy psychedelic with improvised freak-outs, the dry-to-the-bone-grooves of Queens Of The Stone Age, the soulful heavy-arena-rock of Thin Lizzy and the wild proto-punk of such Motor-City-legends like MC5 und The Stooges.

Spidergawd is the best band you might not have seen yet. They bring back the magic and fun of rock’n’roll – as they did on their marvellous debut (2014) and their even leaner and meaner follow-up II (2015). The third album (Spidergawd III) arrived in early 2016 – and it is as relentless as its predecessors!
