I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Stuck in the Mud - Fried Bourbon

The music is straight up, down home blues and boogie woogie. These guys serve up the blues like they came out of the Mississippi Delta and went to Chicago and yet they hail from ports far away. Steven Troch (vocals/harmonica); Tim Ielegems (guitars); Chris Forget (upright/ Fender bass) and Stefan Decoene (drums) make up the main band. They’ve recorded two cd’s with Gene Taylor (piano) and Roland Van Campenhout (production/percussion/vocals/sitar…) and of course both of them add some more unique flavors to the stew. The sounds of a vintage fat body guitar, a killer rhythm section and top-notch vocals and harp will bring you some low down blues, some happy blues , wild Memphis style boogie woogie, full-throated juke joint stomp and you can save your soul with some sinners gospel.
In 2012 Steven Troch has won the “King of swing” harmonica contest at Mark Hummels harmonica blow out in in the USA.
In march 2012 Fried Bourbon releases a new album for "Naked Productions" entitled “Gravy train”.
No hype stuff, but some good old style blues and boogie music to delight your ears and body.
Again all tracks were recorded live in the studio the old fashioned way.
Our good friend Gene Taylor was there to tickle the ivories and JJ Louis layed down some cool Hammond B3 grooves on some of the tracks..
On board we had Matthew Hardison, ‘the Moon Invader’ as our producer and magic man JP to capture this session on the magnetic tape.

“Get on board the gravy train out of town and blow your blues away. Just dig a hole in the ground and throw the devil in, but let him come out once in a while! We might be passing some storms and have to stay at low budget motels or in a hole in the ground at nine below zero, but the feelin’called the blues doesn’t have to be sad. The blues is actually happy music! You can shake what your mama gave you with some kiddo in Red’s jook joint. DON’T turn your damper down and feel some lowdown love. You’ll feel like a king, lowriding a rocket 88, a mule, a train, a bus or just your once white shoes. Put this album on your recordplayer, cd player, Ipod, Walkman… and jump that ‘Gravy train’"
