Album Notes
Jukka “Black River Bluesman” Juhola & Andy Bad Mood Hudson play their Blues in the deep woods and frozen swamps of the muddy Black River Delta way up North in cold Finland. Their unrefined, electric Blues have been compared to the rough sounds of the Mississippi Hill Country artists as well as to anything between Tom Waits and Black Keys or psychoblues and garage. Whatever the influences may be, they play their animal Blues with no compromises - just the way they feel.

Jukka and Andy got their stage names like the bluesmen of old: Jukka was named after the place he's from (Svartå=Black River) and Andy - not after the place he's from (Pohja=Bottom!) - but after his cheerful disposition.

Jukka plays Johnny Lowebow’s genuine handmade custom cigar-box guitars, the most special of which is the doubleneck stereo baritone which allows him to play bass and lead at the same time. Andy the multi-instrumentalist functions in this line-up as a drummer-percussionist and a back-up singer.

”The flag-bearer of Finnish alt.blues” Black River Bluesman has always walked his own path, producing his uncompromising and original alt.blues with little regard for the mainstream. The line-ups have changed, but the group has now tightened into a working duo with Andy, who joined the band in the days of the Croaking Lizard, retaining nothing but the most vital elements of the music. Andy himself has spent years singing and playing in and writing for various bands, mostly in the field of heavier rock.

“Jukka ´Black River Bluesman´ and his Cockroach Combo destroyed the woods and the mountains around their tiny hometown of Mustio Finland by carving their guitars, drums and harmonicas from whole ironwood trees with their bare hands and by using John Henry´s twelve pound hammer (with four foot handle) they beat down those mountains for brass, silver and iron (and coal to fire this thing) to fashion the rest of the parts they needed. When they were finished they stomped their thirst with a bottle of RL Burnside´s Bloody mthrfckr and sat down in the full moon light at that muddy crossroads between Holly Springs Mississippi, Mustio and County Kisko to play Their raw dirty beautiful Blues.” Rick Saunders, Deep Blues (USA)
