Four Songs from Hell
The Foggy Few Just like The Rolling Stones was portrayed as the Beatles' evil step brother, The Foggy Few can be called the rougher cousin of Fleet Foxes. The Foggy Few is a folk rock band from Bergen, Norway inspired by 70's folk rock, with celtic energy. The debut album 'The Pint of No Return' was praised by music reporters in 2006. The band was playlisted and the music video was shown every week on Norwegian national television and the band did a lot of concerts all over the country. The direction the band as taken over the last four years is due to the three new members. From it's inception in September 2003, the band did a lot of shows with major Norwegian artists, and toured across Norway. The Foggy Few has during it's time on the road earned a reputation as a phenomenal live band with it's folk inspired expression, and distinguished itself as one of the country's leading folk rock bands. In the production of their debut album The Foggy Few got the help from the Italian Davide Bertolini, perhaps best known as the producer for Kings of Convenience. In the sequel, the band has taken a step closer to the darker side and worked out a more jagged and less commercial sound. They have also moved away from the extended arrangement with strings and brass section and the most recent recordings reflect the fact that much of this is the result of improvisation in the studio. Inspiration is taken from artists like Fairport Convention, Jethro Tull, Fleetwood Mac, Thin Lizzy, Lindisfarne, etc. The Foggy Few are: Stig Bruhjell - Banjo, Mandola, Whistles, Harmonica, Vocals Atle-Hjørn Øien - Vocals, Electric Guitar Lars Topho Nordtveit - Drums/Percussion Haakon Askeland - Mandolin, Electric Mandolin, Acoustic Guitar Kjetil Bjørnevoll - Bass.
