Bjørn Berge - I'm the Antipop (2007)

With his raspy voice, Bjørn Berge screams the blues, with dark visions and lyrics about current issues. However, Berge’s Viking style and music reach far beyond the blues. When he's not playing his originals, he covers tracks by Frank Zappa, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Motorhead with just an acoustic guitar. His sound is amazing and definitely unique. Although Berge is a mass of pure energy, his guitar playing is as precise as the workings of a Swiss watch (let’s not forget Bjorn started his musical career playing blue grass on a five string banjo). With « I’m The Antipop », this hard-rocking bluesman covers his favorite artists’ and demonstrates that a twelve string guitar can wield the same power as a full-fledged rock band.
