When Danish rock n’ roll band Electric Guitars released their debutalbum last year, it caused quite a stir in their homeland - to such an extent that it even made the news on national television. The two guitar virtuosos behind Electric Guitars, Soren Andersen and Mika Vandborg, had succeeded in bringing ten of the best Danish guitarists of all time on one track, called ’Hero of Mine’. A homage to the electric guitar and some of the Danish legends who have played it. On the 10 minute long track you can listen to solos by Tim Christensen of Dizz Mizz Lizzy for instance, Jacob Binzer of D-A-D, Billy Cross who played with Bob Dylan in the late 70s and not least Franz Beckerlee of the legendary 70s Danish rockband Gasolin’ - as well as, naturally, Andersen and Vandborg themselves.
Over the years, the two self-proclaimed guitar nerds, have been in countless bands, appeared on dozens upon dozens of successful albums in Denmark, with groups like Gnags and Love Shop. They have also released their own solo albums, one of such by Mika Vandborg included the former front-man from The Darkness, Justin Hawkins. Add to that Soren Andersens appearances with Marco Mendoza, Dave Mustaine, Billy Sheehan and Tommy Aldridge, and one can quickly see that the these two incredible guitarists have worked with their fair share of talents artists.
However, now it is time for the duos own version of straight forward, back to the roots, no nonsense classic rock with strong melodies - recorded with drummer Morten Hellborn and bassist Peter Kjøbsted. This is 4 guys, playing 12 maximum energy rock n’ roll songs, with the electric guitar taking centre stage.
