Blues Basement – the band through the years
Blues Basement was formed in 1985 in Bodø by guitarist Eirik Stensvik and bassist Peter Glanfield just after a game of tennis. These two discovered they had more in common than just hitting the ball at each other – a genuine love of the blues. This was the music they both grew up with in the late ‘60’s and early ‘70’s on both sides of the Norwegian Sea. Peter had played in various blues, jazz and folk groups in the London area and Eirik Stensvik had played lead guitar from a young age in several groups in the Bodø area.
So the original trio Blues Basement was formed in Eirik Stensvik’s bomb- and soundproof basement studio with drummer Bjørnar Bye on drums. Blues Basement started off like most blues bands playing mostly classic blues material – both American and British with heroes like John Mayall, Eric Clapton, Fleetwood Mac, Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson and B.B. King. They played their first gig in 1986 in Bodø – an outdoors concert. Blues Basement recorded their first studio songs in Ringkjøp Studio in Bodø in 1987.
