Both an accomplished blues guitar player and a prolific singer/songwriter,
Austrian-based Ripoff Raskolnikov must be considered one of the most
idiosyncratic figures on the European blues scene. Like thousands of his
colleagues, he admires and reveres such blues greats as Blind Willie McTell,
Skip James, Robert Johnson or John Lee Hooker.
On the other hand, and quite unlike most of his colleagues, he has no desire to imitate or copy them. Nor, for that matter, is he willing to remain within the boundaries of what is generally accepted as the blues.
What does connect him to the aforementioned giants is his fully committed,
unwavering integrity in exploring, and coming to terms with such human
emotions as love, passion, desire, loss, pain, the quest of beauty, hunger
for life, or fear of death.
Driven by such forces, Raskolnikov unleashes songs of powerful poetic and
musical expression which, more often that not, defy stylistic categorization.
On stage, Ripoff Raskolnikov works mainly solo or as a duo with Venezuelan ace percussionist Ismael Barrios. He also does the occasional tour with his band including Szabolcs Nagy on piano, Laca Varga on bass and Lajos Gyenge on drums, three excellent musicians from Budapest/Hungary who worked on his latest, much-acclaimed album Everything is Temporary.
Whatever the line-up, Raskolnikov never fails to create an ambiance of
poignant intensity. He is the sort of artist you like to watch as well as
listen to. His stage charisma, his dry sense of humour and his highly
personal approach to the blues make him one of a kind.(
