We're back on the road again. We're heading way up north to the land of Lapps, lingonberries and Lasse Viren - FINLAND!!!
I have been lucky enough to visit Helsinki a few times and always enjoyed it. On one occasion I was asked to leave a rock club after accidentally falling in with a bunch of Irishmen who were arguing violently about the name of the bird in 'Peanuts'. You had to be there.
We have something for everyone this time - assuming, that is, that everyone likes one or more of Finnish punk, Finnish hip hop, Finnish folk music, Finnish Bobbie Gentry covers and the Finnish Jethro Tull.
"Akateeminen Poika" - Pella Miljoona & N.U.S.
"Heruuks" - Fintelligens
"Ottajat" - Varttina
"Okolona River Bottom Band" - Kirka
"Deep Thinker" - Tasavallen Presidentti
Was that a kazoo I could hear on the first track? And at under three minutes that Tasavallen Presidentti track is far too short. That second video is very similar to the kind of "musical acts" shown here on afternoon tv every dayReplyDelete
You might be right. At first I thought it was a badly played yakety sax, but listening again I'm not sureDelete
