"Selected warm folk-pop from Danish songwriter" ROLLING STONE (Germany)
"Flemming Borby shows with "Somebody Wrong" the great art of songwriting, similar to what Robert Forster (Go-Betweens) also masters, and brings at the same time the emotions in turmoil. Highly recommendable!" SOUNDS AND BOOKS
"A front runner in the cyclical nature of fashion and trend and it does all of this without breaking into a sweat. Spot on." DANCING ABOUT ARCHITECTURE
As member of the very highly praised Danish bands, GREENE and THE POETS in the 90'ties, and as LABRADOR bandleader and frontman till 2012, Borby has already shown his wide range of musical talent.
And what would be expected the next development, an album in own name, is now a reality.
Flemming Borby recorded the first solo album "Somebody Wrong" in Austin, Texas end of 2014 with Ben Kwellers backing band: Mike Meadows (dr) and Andrew Pressman (bass).
It has now being released in Germany, Austria, Switzerland (sept. 2015 - Revolver/Rough Trade).

Tour is planned in November 2015 with Greta Brinkman (US) on bass (MOBY; Debbie Harry, L7) and Rich Millin (UK) on drums (BELARUS, Fly Cat Fly).
Since 2004, Flemming Borby has been living in Berlin, Germany, and worked with local icons such as Nikko Weidemann and Tom Krimi, but also international musicians such as Toby Dammit (Iggy Pop, Nick Cave) and Martin Wenk (Calexico).
