Honey B. & T-bones
psychedelic ghetto blues
No run-of-the-mill grind, but a heady coctail, where best psychedelic elements from 1960’s San Francisco meet Mississippi blues in a garage with serious intentions. The phat bass lines of Honey B. and the funky and rich drumming of the drummers Jaska Lukkarinen and Mamba Assefa builds a house, where T-Bone Ed’s fiery slide takes no prisoners. The cherry on the cake comes courtesy of Honey B’s singing. Think updated Memphis Minnie and you’re close.
Blues is not for teenagers, it comes out of life experience. T-Bones have gigged a quarter century, often all over Europe, so they know the ropes. They have worked with harpist Gary Primich, guitar ace Mel Brown and the mighty UMO orchestra and currently back Finland’s answer to Dylan, Tuomari Nurmio (a.k.a. Judge Bone).
In the course of ten albums their style has matured from rootsy blues through rocking R&B and psychedelic experimental rock to today’s kaleidoscopic garage blues that fills their upcoming, excellent Alien Blues album.
