  • Maritta Kuula has been singing for 20 years!

    She had an amazing gig at Tavastia tonight. Warm-up was Nieminen & Litmanen, the first time I ever saw them live and they were great, as I supposed. But Maritta Kuula herself... this was the best gig I've ever seen from her! The new band is GREAT! They had done some new arrangement, some songs had Sly & Robbie /ska-flavors, some sounded surprisingly like Kaj Chydenius or russian romances. And she has always had that charisma, that voice, those songs with hooks... what a wonderful evening.

    I first heard Maritta as a singer of 500 kg lihaa, the avant-pop /experimental band she had with Kauko Röyhkä et al. at the 80s. It was love at first hearing. They made strong, strange versions of finnish poetry and some of their own songs as well. I have their music on vinyl, so you won't see them on my last.fm charts. They have recently reformed, but I haven't managed to see them live yet.

    I always thought she was not as good on records as she could; songs were mixed to sound strangely straight-forward rock…
  • Hello there you little ghost.

    For a couple of days I've been listening The White Stripes of course, Tehosekoitin, Turbonegro and Slayer. Oh, and also 500 kg lihaa.

    I haven't really listened my favourite band Tehosekoitin this much for ages, but now it's kicking me again. I really can't listen to some of the sad song of the band, got my reasons for that. But I am starting to tolerate all the bad and sad feelings that some songs make me feel (memories etc., you know). But somehow I've been remainded WHY I like Tehosekoitin so much; it's all about havin' fun, hanging out with friends and pure "rock'n'roll-monster-movie-show"ism!! :D

    And Turbonegro, oh yes. That's some shiggety shit outrageously blowing my mind (like the wind :----D)... AGAIN. Really a re-falling-in-love.

    The newest album of Slayer, Christ Illusion I got into my hands last weekend and I started listening it last monday. Hmm. There are pieces that I like quite a lot and pieces that I'm not so much into. Hard to say yet.
