Bjorn Berge can play (and sing)

I had heard of this (multiple) guitar and other stringed instrument player from Norway some time ago, but had not listened to any of his stuff until recently, when I bought one of his records. He is very good and can also sing, in a cigarette-husky kind of way.

He can play at being a bit heavy (just look at those tatoos), but he is a fantastic instrumentalist. I find that he is often at his best in the more delicate stuff that he does, although the fast ones can really rock.

Here is a clip that shows the side I think I like most of Berge, although he is indeed quite multiple. The song is called Louise. The clip acts like a promotion for all of his albums to date. Good stuff anyway.
