Electrifying Delta Blues

A roaring voice & howling slide guitars, that's BJ gone electric!! 

Solo-Duo-Trio

-As I see it, this is a natural extension on the acoustic stuff  I normally do. Simply 1920/30/40 's acoustic blues that has been electrified and taken the leap towards the 1950/60 's style. The way one play is still pretty similar, but the actual experience and the songs become significantly "wilder" with all the dirty distortion! Using the same “cheap” Japanese guitars as many blues artists played on in the 1960/70s. I really dig the rowdy tone that comes out of these low budget instruments.

-Som jag ser det så är det en naturlig och tidstypisk förlängning på
den akustiska blues som jag lirar. Helt enkelt 1920/30/40-tals akustisk blues som elektrifierats och tagit steget fram till 1950/60-talet, spelstilen är fortfarande ganska lika men själva upplevelsen och
låtarna blir betydligt "vildare" med all skitig distortion!
Jag har de "billiga" Japanska gitarrer som många bluesartister spelade på i USA på 1960/70-talet. Jag diggar verkligen den råa stökiga tonen men får av dessa lågbudgetinstrument!

 Länstidningens recensent skrev så här om Good Stuff's framträdande på Östersunds Bluesfestival 2013:

"..Johan Eliasson och hans projekt Good Stuff gjorde en smått succé inne på studioscenen. Med sitt råa, blytunga sound trollband de sin publik så pass att folk nästan glömde bort Eddie Clearwater.."
