Gu Geu

September 2016


Seven original songs sung in Basque and an instrumental piece that approach us to a territory  half way between blues and rock flavoured  by many influences  going  from Otis Rush, Stevie Ray Vaughn to  Ray Charles.

The record opens up  with “Starblues”, an instrumental shuffle with Otis Rush reminiscences  and the greatest an legendary powerblues trios spirit, with a flawless  hammond sound accompanying  the band to giving step “Beldurra Iluntasunean” (Fear of the darkness) a half time shuffle with an intimist character and remarkable harmonic  developments. “Gu geu” (Us) is declaration of intentions where  much missed Stevie Ray Vaughn´s nerve and Sonny Boy Williamson become clear references as the song moves forward verse by verse up to a undoubted  rock flavored chorus, probably the most original song from the record. Gesur`N´ Blues” (Lies and Blues) it takes us back to slow blues tradition with a anti-establishment message, deserving special mention Jon´s guitar work and Yon Labayen combining hammond and piano. Follows up  “Musikaz Itsu” (Blind with music) and “Irudi biziak” (Living  Images) a piano intro in the most pure New Orleans style mixed with mambo, jazz and shuffle thus highlighting the many different influences from the Guipuzkoan band members. “Lagun ezezagun” (Friend) an energetic Blues Rock piece through Jon´s guitar and solvent band´s work.  Closing down the record “Errepidean” (In the road) a true blend of styles, right from Boogie to Country hard to classify transgressing any label, taking for granted the originality in each and every song written by Jon Barreros.
