3. Funniest tour/gig memory?

First night in Russia on tour with Uhrit & Kovaa Rasvaa. The car broke down in the middle of some unknown forest of Karelia and it was pouring rain. Some dude, who lived near by (50km from the car) came to to tow us to some small, Russian village, where we stayed at small country cottage. Our helpers mother, an old Russian babushka cooked us dinner and gave us vodka and vine. Soon everybody was drunk and there was little party going. Next morning our driver managed to fix the car and tour continued. Everyone who was on that tour remembers the night and party in little russian cottage with a smile, it was so nice night after freezing in the rain in broken-down tour van.

7. What was the most shit band/gig you’ve ever seen/done?

Lapinpolthajat show in Athens, Greece. I was guite drunk before the show, and I managed to find a nice, small, almost secret room from behind the stage. I fell a sleep there. Awakening was rude, all the guys from our band pummeled me with fists. It turned out we had missed our showtime and the party was almost over. So after the rude awakening we went straight to stage, me being beaten down, hang overed wreck. It was not our best show ever.
