The Blue Van Biography
In the 1960s, after the Beatles and the Rolling Stones began to take the world by storm, there was a term in Denmark used to describe this new loud and ragged brand of rock and roll: pigtraad. Loosely translated, it means barbed wire, barbed wire music.
Some four decades later, the term works as good as any to describe the avalanche of electrified R&B delivered by Danish quartet The Blue Van, who derive their name, appropriately, from the vehicle known in Denmark for collecting the mentally ill, the loonies.
Steeped in the rough riffing bested by The Kinks, and schooled on such blues luminaries as Howlin Wolf, the band harks back to a time when the guitars were best raw and the drums went Biff-Bang-Pow like firecrackers.
Indeed, the sound of The Blue Van is one entirely unaffected by the past three decades of popular music, as if it was plucked out of a thrift store vinyl collection. And there's a simple explanation for that: When they began making music together some eight years ago, the bands four members vocalist/guitarist Steffen Westmark, organist Soren V. Christensen, bassist Allan F. Villadsen and drummer Per M. Jorgenson were simply not very interested in the popular music of the day.
