Per Borten from Trondheim seemed to have to follow the path of many unknown musicians whose careers are not getting off the ground. After several more or less unsuccessful attempts, he has now received the right initial help. The singer and guitarist met the two motor psycho musicians Bent Sæther and Kenneth Kapstad, who now play bass and drums on their debut album "Spidergawd", giving Borten's songs a tremendous drive. In fact, the rhythm work is excellent, which compensates for small weaknesses in the songwriting. After all, Borten has the right voice to give the pieces the right amount of dirt. His guitar work is beyond all doubt. No matter if it is the crisp reefs or the sometimes long solos, even if the Norwegian sometimes exaggerates. A special delicacy is the saxophone, which exudes an unexpected big band atmosphere in some hard and fast passages or gives a slanted intro. Spidergawd is not a flash in the pan. The quartet is already working on its successor.
