It might be quite difficult indeed to hide for someone who is as tall as Rune Nordvik also known as PAPASLIDE. His height of 1, 93 meters also seems due to his ancestors, the Vikings, because Rune was born near the Norwegian harbor town of Bergen, in the province of Hordaland. Music historians from Bryggen noted February 25, 1962 as his birthday.
From the very beginning, he wanted to exceed the limited area of the blues. He wanted to leave the monotonous world of three chords behind that are being repeated over and over again, the world that is also mostly inhabited by mean women that have left their men. He started to experiment, slipped other musical styles in like Swamp Rock, Country and of course Rock and elements of Texas blues. Runes admiration for Johnny Winter was so enormous that he had himself tattooed with a portrait of his idols on the left part of the chest.
It took another 16 years for Rune to start his first own band called "Blues For Breakfast". The first changes in lineup were made in 1997, and after that the "Nordvik Blues Band" hit the Bergen club scene as well as other hot venues in the area around Bergen. Five years later Rune met his congenial partners: Geir Rogno on bass, the drummer Valentin Doner and the guitarist Arild Seim. Thus was the birth of PAPASLIDE. Within a short period of time the band had made a name as the hottest blues act of Scandinavia. After club gigs all over Norway they went on tour in the neighboring countries.
At one of these occasions on the road Rune Norvik came across the two time Grammy winner Roy Rodgers who was touring with Norton Buffalo (ex-Commander Cody, Steve Miller Band). The slide guitarist from California (who had amongst others produced John Lee Hooker's masterpiece "The Healer") reckoned the Norwegian to be a rough diamond, and during joint sessions he introduced him to the secrets and techniques of the bottleneck.
In 2009 Rune released the first self-produced album by PAPASLIDE. Especially the Scandinavian critics loved it. The Scandinavian rock radio stations played "You Can't Hide", and they liked the tune "Blues For Breakfast" a lot. "What Are We Livin' For", the second album, sounds more mature, more down to earth and have intensified their rock facet. With the title track they also have a radio hit at hand.
