GORDON BLUE is a vehicle for Bertram Diem's raw Mississippi Blues and Appalachian Folk stylings. Like a rusty car, or a favorite pair of work-boots; it's a little worn-out, yet deeply cherished; simple and straight-forward; asking nothing, giving everything.

Gordon Blue was born, over a favorite dish in a Hatlersdorfer Wirtschaft, as an excuse for Gerhard Klocker and Chris Laine to play with the notorious Kehlegger. The plan, from the very beginning, was to make a record worthy of their own collection. Each brought their individual musical (or non-musical) sensibilities to the project and the result has become a series of recordings, lovingly produced by the uncompromising Klocker, and recorded by Laine, in an old Stickerei in Lustenau and a remote Fussacher Swamp. A collection of old classic and some unknown country and pop faves; bare and naked, un-blemished by false hopes of grandeur; every breath, foot-stomp, chair-squeak, and bird-chirp has been immortalized in glorious vinyl fidelity -- a special delight for those who can appreciate such subtle details. Some call it Country, some call it Trash. It's more like Slow Punk, because of it's down-tempo irreverence and roughness. But it will always be the Blues in it's purist sense.

A home-spun yarn of not-so-overdone classics in the tradition of North America's finest Appalachian music, with a little Austrian Hillbilly Stomp to boot. Simple and direct. "From the haystack to your brain!"
