Posted in heavy psych, italy, rock, stoner rock, Uncategorized on April 12, 2020 by vesalahde

STREAMING EARTH VOL5 – finnhits

Posted in 70s, 80s, finland, punk rock, rock, Uncategorized on January 11, 2020 by vesalahde

One tweet made me think of more music i heard and liked in the late 70s before i listened music, heard them from radio, TV1 (there was only one TV channel in Finland, maybe two?) or somewhere else, didnt know anything about genres, punk rockers smoking cigarettes in the corner of Ounasvaara school looked like monsters, tried to stay as far from them as possible.

Spontaneous Combustions.png

back to heavy heaven, albumful of unreleased improvisations, bluesy/moody/heavyrock jams, 4x10min, at times was thinking of sweaty Gary Moore spitting out his blues solos, great soundtrack for hard days nights or heavy boozing parties. KOZMIKARTIFACTZ

Woah, this was surprisingly good, should i say brilliant, havent heard so cool garage rock LP in years, liked all the tracks, faster pieces, romantic/melancholic ballads and everything between, for some reason this made me wanna drink tableful of beers and smoke pocketful of cigarettes in some hazy 90s rocknroll bar. GODOWN
