Tomorrow I’m going with my friend Heidi to see a Finnish singer Ismo Alanko perform on a club here in Helsinki. I bought the tickets in June when we were in Hawaii, right when they came available. I think Ismo is one of the brightest Finnish musicians, he started his career in the early 80’s with a punk band and has done a massive career here. I loved him in the 80’s but as I say I never got to see anyone perform live when I was a teen I’m taking it back now.
One of his bands made one album in English but never quite caught outside Finland. Their lyrics work best in Finnish imo but you can find them in Youtube under the name L’Amourder.
Here is one of their songs from their stunt in Moscow. Forever hungry
And one of Ismo’s new songs, in Finnish. In English the name is Trance-assumpted dance and I just love it, I must always dance when I hear it.
