Biography

Jukka ´Black River Bluesman´Juhola and ‘Andy’ BAd Mood Hudson destroyed the woods and the mountains around their tiny hometown of Mustio Finland by carving their guitars, drums and harmonicas from whole ironwood trees with their bare hands and by using John Henry’s twelve pound hammer (with four foot handle) they beat down those mountains for brass, silver and iron (and coal to fire this thing) to fashion the rest of the parts they needed. When they were finished they stomped their thirst with a bottle of RL Burnside’s Bloody mthrfckr and sat down in the full moon light at that muddy crossroads between Holly Springs Mississippi, Mustio (Black River) and County Pohja (Bottom) to play Their raw dirty beautiful Blues…” Rick Saunders, Deep Blues (USA), August 2006.

Jukka “Black River Bluesman” Juhola & Andy Bad Mood Hudson play their Blues in the deep woods and frozen swamps of the muddy Black River Delta way up North in cold Finland. Their unrefined, electric Blues have been compared to the rough sounds of the Mississippi Hill Country artists as well as to anything between Tom Waits and Black Keys or psychoblues and garage. Whatever the influences may be, they play their animal Blues with no compromises - just the way they feel. Jukka and Andy got their stage names like the bluesmen of old: Jukka was named after the place he’s from (Svartå=Black River) and Andy - not after the place he’s from (Pohja=Bottom!) - but after his cheerful disposition.
