i'm listening to their album from last year. its fucking AMAZING. FUCKING HELL ITS GOOD.
appallingly bad live. Saw them a year or two ago at St Giles church. Sounded nothing like the records - lumpen, out of tune, twee. Just horrible. Hopefully I just saw them on an off night.
and a gig at venn in the uk, saw a good review of the venn one online...
I really hope that was an off day; I'd love to hear a good live rendition of Kevatrumpu.
No one replied though. Boo. But yeah, their last album is brilliant. In fact I'm going to listen to it now.
Currently see: Kippi Kaninus thread.
I think I'll go and bump it.
I'm just so used to people not replying and me bouncing around in my head frustratedly wishing there was a better way to trumpet a new bands' virtues from the rooftops.
Could you listen to Bad Dudes please? I keep going on about them here but no one seems interested. You might like them.
On the same label, did you listen to Eleanoora Rosenholm ?
given the hyperbole spouted from various quarters. Should really give it another spin sometime.
Although Yha... (fucked if I'm going to google for the spelling with dotty bits :P) is possibly better although different. Great band. See also Kemialliset Ystävät (although they have a reputation for erratic live shows).
about a year ago and I never sought them out. I am now ashamed and shall do so presently...!
Which seemed to grow on me.
As lyle has mentioned, Eleanoora Rosenholm is also worth a listen. More upbeat, but still crazy Finnish stuffs.
I dig most kinds of Finnish weirdness
Laulu is frustratingly short though, it's over all too quickly. Yha.. is close to perfect. Fonal did a cracking compilation a year or two ago called something like Summer and Smiles of Finland, worth tracking down just for the Paavoharju track which is immense!
