Biography

Finland (2003 – 2013)

PMMP was a popular pop band from Finland. Although the name PMMP is often thought to refer only to singers Paula Vesala and Mira Luoti, the band consists of the female vocalists and three male musicians, Mikko Virta, Juho Vehmanen, and Heikki Kytölä. Their songs are composed by Jori Sjöroos (Thergothon, This Empty Flow, Fu-Tourist, Magenta Skycode), who also plays all the instruments on their first and second albums, and most of them on the third. The lyrics are written by Paula and Mira. PMMP played last concert at Jäähalli in Helsinki on 27th October 2013.

The name of the band is said to be an abbreviation of the sentence “Paulan ja Miran Molemmat Puolet”, which can be translated into English as “Both Sides of Paula and Mira”.

PMMP came to daylight during the summer of 2003 with their hit song Rusketusraidat. It was also the biggest selling single in Finland that year. They have so far released four studio albums: Kuulkaas Enot! (2003), Kovemmat Kädet (2005), Leskiäidin Tyttäret (2006) and Veden varaan (2009). Leskiäidin tyttäret sold platinum (30 000 copies in Finland) on the day it was released.

In 2004, PMMP won the award for “Best new band of 2003” at the Finnish music makers awards gala Emma and in 2006 Kovemmat kädet, the real break-through album of the band, was given several awards at the same gala, including “Best Finnish pop album of 2005”. The Finnish music magazine Rumba also named the album as “Best Finnish album of 2005” and the song Matkalaulu as “Best Finnish song of 2005”.

    Matkalauluun on hyvä lopettaa. Harva yhtye pystyy siihen, että viime teokseen versioi kourallisen omia kappaleitaan ja lopputuloksena on lähes kauttaaltaan alkuperäiset sovitukset ylittäviä lopputuloksia. Henkilökohtaisesti rankkaan Matkalaulun yhtyeen kovimmaksi julkaisuksi.

    Kyllä sen nyt ymmärtää, että joskus on aika tauollekin ja voivat keskittyä välillä muihin asioihin. Ansaitsevat sen.

    @Siobster: they split but only for now, they might start again some time.

    Ettekö te osaa lukea? PMMP:n omilla sivuilla sanotaan että lopettavat TOISTAISEKSI. Tiedättekö mitä se tarkoittaa? Sitä, että he saattavat aloittaa toimintansa taas joskus! Ainakin ovat rehellisiä eivätkä sano lopettavansa lopullisesti ja sit parin vuoden päästä ovat taas jatkamassa. Paino on siis sanalla TOISTAISEKSI.

    Eiköhän kyse ole vaan rahastuksesta. Vedetään jäähyväiskiertue isoilla lippuhinnoilla ja kaupaksi menee "kun viimenen tilaisuus". Sitten muutaman vuoden päästä tehdän paluukiertue ja taas kerätään rahat tyhmiltä ihmisiltä. :)

    It's gonna be hard not having PMMP around anymore. It was always comforting to know they were out there making great music. =/
