I was performing as a guest artist at Henry´s Pub on June 21 st. here in Tampere . I played with the great houseband Fisherman´s End, which was fun! Klasu was there too, he plays in the band =) .
I covered the Zombie of the Cramberries and What´s Up on the 4 Non Blondes, and I´m Only Happy When It Rains and bunch of other stuff, like Janis Joplin, Skunk Anansie The Garbage....Thanks for the clips K. = ). Of course we also drink terribly a lot of Fisu after the show, and I met some great new people, thank you everyone ! Now I also know why the backstage is called kusikellari hehehe
about the set:
These songs were my teenage favourites, Zombie of the Cranberries was actually the first song I have ever performed live, and that was as real young....year 1995, with a Mellow- band, at the Klubi of Tampere ! The nite was titled as "angry dykes & some others" , because most of the songs I performed were composed by lesbian women. It was just a funny co- incidence I realized, while putting together this set, that most of my idols as a teen actually were lesbians; I loved bands like Skunk Anansie and 4 Non Blondes, but it´s not something that I meant to point out as a political statement here now....I just liked the way they sung. And maybe lesbians were just more likely to play "like men" back in the 90´s, to rock it, and not just smile up there to show off their tits.... Not that there is anything wrong with tits either, but as an angsty teen, you just wanted someone to scream out for you....hmm...especially if you had no tits at all yourself, like me, heheheh.
Thank God when people get older, they get fatter, some things get fixed by nature,at least a bit, and with money I suppose you could get just about anything big nowadays heheh.
anyway, take care , all good to everyone, see you on TAMMERFEST!
