BIO

The name Hundred Million Martians should ring a bell between every pair of punk-rockin-power-pop-loving ears, but due to some wicked twist of fate it probably does not. However, those aware of the bands doings and whereabouts surely know what the fuss would be about.

Hailing from Turku, Finland, the band kicked off in 1996 by releasing a four track EP Brighter Days. A year later they got signed to Finnish Hiljaiset Levyt label. The debut album Martian Arts was released in 1997 and contained some impressive tunes. The self-explanatory gem A Perfect Pop Song is a perfect example of the album’s brilliance.

“In 1998 we released an EP called I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend”, lead singer and guitarist Jyrki remembers. “It had four tracks by the same name, one original and one from the Ramones, the Rubinoos and the Pushtwangers each. It was a cool concept and got great reviews. The radio didn’t spit on it either.”

Soon after the band recorded their second full-lenghter Mars Bars (1999). It turned out great, all the way from the excellent whiplash rock of Where Ever You Are I Hope That You’re Happy Now to the tenderness of Cool Shades. “It sounded freaking brilliant, still does. A masterpiece and an album to be proud of on your death bed”, says Jyrki. Mars Bars got great reviews.
