Marten Andersson talks
Charity, Lizzy Borden and George Lynch with Fallen Blue!
PRESS RELEASE - For
April 4, 2012
Fallen Blue was created as a means to provide
support, both emotional and financial, for the families of police
officers who are killed outside the line of duty (i.e. car
Written by John Guarnieri
Fallen Blue recently sat down with our friend and longtime
Lizzy Borden bass player, Marten Andersson. Marten
is also known for his tours with George Lynch's Lynch Mob,
in addition to the authoring of a successful music reference book
and appearing in smaller TV/movie parts. Lizzy Borden is one of
our biggest supporters, so it is always special to speak with one
of their members.
has you bass playing changed between playing with Lynch Mob and
now Lizzy Borden?
I always think
it's great playing different styles of music no matter what. I
evolved tremendously as a musician and a performer having the
opportunity playing with both bands and working with different
styles of music. One day you eat Chinese the next Italian, both
are great, just different. With LB the production is a big part of
the show, which is always a ton of fun, it's like being part of a
theater play every night. With Lynch it's more of being a great
musician and create a great back up band for George and bring
focus to what a great player he is.
What is it about Fallen Blue that compelled you to get involved?
There are a
few reasons. When I was in 6th grade my buddy's dad was a police
officer who got killed (it was an accident) and I saw the impact
it had on his family, my friend was never the same again and I
still have that memory in my head. I want people to really take a
hard look, to think what police (and military) do for us, they are
the first one on the scene, facing whatever danger and hostile
situations without any hesitation. Think about what these people
deal with, the possible demons they have to fight when they get
off work and when they come home from a war and so forth. You
think you have bad dreams!!?
What was the most ridiculous, and possibly embarrassing, costume
you have worn on stage during a show?
Lynch once had
this idea that we all do a show in weird animal costumes. I think
my costume was going to be a frog or dog outfit, it didn't happen.
I think we all sobered up the next day (laughter). Looking at
pictures over the years, there is definitely some clothes that
make me go, "what the hell was I thinking!". I recently gave all
my old stage clothes (spandex pants and old flannel shirts) to
charity, I hope there is someone in Haiti wearing them proudly.
(Remember, the spandex pants go INSIDE the cowboy boots!)
know you like to shoot various firearms, but what do you do in
your free time?
hockey, watch movies, eat good food, ride a harley and hang out
with friends. Pretty normal life to be honest.
What is your favorite album cover, from any band, of all time and
That would be
saying who is the hottest girl of all time (laughing) There's so
many different ones that comes to mind. I dont know "of all time"
but I have a very strong memory of being a kid sitting for hours
looking at my Kiss albums, reading the lyrics and when I saw
Gene's picture on Alive II, wow! I was sold. They had the
music, the stage show with the comic/horror feel that just
What other charity work do you and the rest of Lizzy Borden
We had kids
travel on our tour bus from the Make a Wish Foundation before,
that was awesome. Everybody in LB has their own charities and
causes that are special and equally important. However, it's safe
to say, from all of us that it's a big honor to be part of the
Fallen Blue organization. Personally, mainly because of my mom's
struggle, cancer charity has always been close to my heart as
well. The VH1 Save The Music Foundation is a great organization
dedicated to restoring instrumental music education in America's
public schools, and raising awareness about the importance of
music as part of children's complete education. As long as the
help, funding and resources are being distributed correctly to the
people that need it, any charity is a good charity.
Lizzy Borden can go overseas and play to some large and amazing
crowds but back in the U.S. it seems all classic bands from the 80
s struggle to find a new generation. What will it take to change
that misconception, especially since the band sounds better than
Thanks man! We
got a great line up right now. Over the last 4 years we have
played in almost 20 countries on some of the main stages of the
biggest festivals. People having the Internet and access to social
media sites gives us access to a world audience instantly. We are
very active on Twitter and those type of outlets and we post
videos from the road all the time, stuff like that definitely
helps the exposure factor. However, the Internet makes people have
an attention span of a gold fish so it's hard to keep a fan
interested in your news and your events. I think a lot has to do
that many of the 80's bands play in places where it's 21 and over
and the bands go on at 1 am with 8 openers, that alone makes me
not want to go out, unless its a band I want to see really bad.
When we did the House of Blues tour 2 years ago (all ages with
great promotion) there was a lot of what we see in Europe and
South America, younger people and kids in the audience.
a personal level, what does the song, 'Believe', on the album
Deal With the Devil, mean to you?
his lyrics so it has a different meaning for every person, which I
really like. Deal With the Devil is a great record, a lot
of great songs, it's unfortunate that, that cd didn't get more
exposure around the world if you ask me. I hope that the label
will remaster and reissue it at some point. From a playing
standpoint my favorite song to play off that CD is 'There will be
Blood Tonight', there is some cool bass parts in it that I am very
proud of, stuff that I cant wait to play every night to this day.
What does the future hold for Lizzy Borden?
working on song ideas right now, we will see where it leads to as
far as a new cd, it's a little premature at this point. We just
played Mexico last weekend, Revolution Fest in Guadalajara and
Force Fest in Mexico City. We are off to play European festivals
next, Hellfest Open Air Festival, Gods of Metal, Headbangers Open
Air and more. Just check our websites for all tour dates!

ESP's for most of my life," explain Marten Andersson.
"Working together with ESP, we have created a prototype of my first
custom bass based on my specs. This is a true unique 8 string bass
that has been refined in my head for a couple of years. I chose top
components, and the highest standards and craftsmanship that ESP
offers. This bass stays in tune throughout a full headlining set, and
it's one of the loudest powerful basses I have ever heard."
Available as a built to order and only available factory direct
through ESP (at the moment). The bass has pickups, hardware and is
designed based on Andersson's original specs, but can be outfitted
with either EMG or Seymour Duncan pickups, Schaller orDunlop Straplocks, and Black or Chrome hardware. Featuring a
standard 8 string ESP B Series neck, 34" scale with 24 frets, The
model incorporates a metallic red sparkle finish with star inlays as
fret markers. Fretboard/inlay: rosewood/stars and Gotoh Tuners.
The new signature bass can be seen in the Lizzy Borden video ''Under
Your Skin" which premiered on MTV's Headbangers Ball last
weekend. The track comes off Lizzy Borden's CD "Appointment With
Death" out world-wide through Metal Blade Records.
Commented LIZZY BORDEN vocalist/namesake: "After
our last video, 'Tomorrow Never Comes', was
nominated for video of the year on MTV's
'Headbangers Ball', we thought we had to step up
the visuals big time on our next one.
