ΘΕΟΦΙΛΟΣ ΜΠΑΓΙΑΣΤΑΣ

 

Limpin Express is a rock & blues trio from Athens, Greece, which was formed on September 2011 by three young but experienced musicians.

Each member has been playing professionally since their early twenties around 2004-05 and have collaborated, or been a member of the

country’s top music acts.

Throughout the years, as members of the “Express” or in bands before that, they’ ve appeared in almost every live club in the country and

also in festivals around Europe (Vinilius Jazz Festival 2008- Lithuania, Blue Bash Festival 2006-UK) but a time comes when one thinks it’ s

time to stop being the sideman and create something yours instead.

At first, some gigs were booked and along came the people’ s growing interest for their shows. They had (and still do have) a tendency to

alter standard songs and jam others. That was led by a need to be innovative. When they started playing their own songs at their gigs, people

attending them, were even more interested in the trio’ s music.

They started forming the material for their first album and recorded their acoustic set, on July 2012 and in November 2nd of the same year

they got in the studio again to record the rest of the songs and finish the album.

Their debut album consists of ten original tracks ranging from acoustic blues, with a groovy twist, to almost late ‘60s-early ‘70s hard rock

styled songs and thus making it a bit more than just another strictly rock or blues album.

Michael Dotson (sideman guitarist & singer for Willie Kent, Big Jack Johnson, Billy Boy Arnold and Homesick James to name a few) "lends" one of his songs to the guys (Travelling Blues)

and also takes part in the recording, playing guitar and singing.

The whole concept was to capture the energy and feel of a band that’s really meant to be a live act. That’s the main reason why it was recorded mostly live.
