We played at the Kamppi Center in downtown Helsinki last Friday and I got to say, it was pretty awesome! Or maybe even more than that. It was f’in insane!
Kamppi is one of the biggest shopping centers in Helsinki with two bus terminals, so it wasn’t a surprise that there would be people there. In addition to that our showtime was at prime time at 5pm when there’s most traffic going through. But still! […] Read more!
Here I am, having a relaxing weekend, time to scrape some blog text! First of all, I have a new drum cover out in case you haven’t noticed. This time we’re serving some All Time Low, the song being one of the many cool tunes off from their latest album Don’t Panic. And by cool I’m foremostly meaning the drum parts. As I have mentioned earlier, I love how the ATL-drummer Rian Dawson has kept his drumming genuine and complex during the years of the band evolving from a small pop punk band to a world-known rock band.

I chose Happy Song because it has all the basic punk-bass habits going on in there… really fast syncopated picking, some melodic lines and holding the bottom of the song. This might be my favorite bass track I have recorded in years and I really wanted to share it with you all! […] Read more!
I got a message from a friend, to whom I actually teach playing the drums. Not long ago we were checking out a gig by Limp Bizkit, which needless to say was awesome. During the aftermath we talked about bands we’d like to see live. The first and brightest wish in my mind was of course All Time Low coming to Finland one day. And this was the message I got yesterday, All Time Low coming to Finland. […] Read more!
I haven’t really talked about me trying to “make my living” as a professional musician. Sometimes I think it might affect a little bit on my credibility as a “rock-musician” when I play wedding gigs and party gigs with my suit on. Or when I teach kids in elementary school and try to act like a grown up teacher! Haha, Imagine THAT! 🙂
Well, I am really blessed that in Madcraft the guys are super-understanding and positive about these things! […] Read more!
