Micke & Lefty feat.Chef - Let The Fire Lead Saksalaisen Grand gtr’s & basses lehden arvostelija sanoo löytäneensä uuden rootsmusa suosikin ja he tulevat Suomesta😎 ”Epätavallinen, hauska ja vangitseva...Loistava soundinen albumi josta välittyy rento tunnelma ja jolta kuuluu hillitön soittamisen riemu. Tällä musiikki matkalla halki bluesin, folkin, rockabillyn, countryn maisemien ei ole yhtään B-luokan biisiä. Toivottavasti näemme heidät Saksassa pian.”👍🙏
Germany based Grand gtr’s & basses magazine review (Google translation): In guitar rock, the Swedes were actually great at copying US trends, despite their comparatively tiny population worldwide. They were once compared to the Far East, where western industrial products were copied and, as cheap copies, flooded our markets. Any serious guitarist, whether amateur or professional, can end up having a long discussion about this Incite china guitars. Japanese manufacturers like Ibanez, on the other hand, went their own way, while rend US companies hit back with the Squier models. To get the hang of it: Swedish bands were superior to America for many years, especially in heavy metal. Even so, they were often denounced as copyists. The Scandinavian neighbor Finland, on the other hand, always made completely independent music, which was usually a bit exhausted. And there we are with this remarkable record that all US roots rock fans will love! At first I thought here that the Swedish rascal duo Friska Viljor had emigrated to the southern United States and made his best record ... Far from it.
“Micke & Lefty are from Finland and would still pass as my new favorite US roots combo. With subtle sarcasm in the lyrics it revolves around the blues rock favorite topic women. Have, lose, miss and so on. Relaxed, but nevertheless with unbridled joy in playing, the journey between folk, country, rockabilly and blues, brilliantly audiorecorded with many acoustic string instruments, a deep humming bass and easy drumming. Without any B-song, a record that is worth every penny. Unusual, funny, captivating. The guys have several kilometers on Scandinavian pub stages and should definitely come to Germany as soon as this crappy distance control crisis has finally subsided!”
