That is pretty awesome!

For a continuing of slightly different, one most of the UK won't know about, though I'm sure Jani will

Finnish metal, doing Andrew Lord Weasal's West End shows. Luckily they normally do just good stuff rather than shows, but it is much better than the original ;)

Too bad these days Nightwish is not much of what it used to be back in old days, lot of drama behind the scenes and some out in public, vocalist had to go and there is a new one, I think from Sweden? Their music has been different since then, don't know if there has been much of decline in fanbase, but it has not been on media much at all since the change.

There is also Sonata Arctica of bit similar genre which is also Finnish, must be some northern thing :lol:

I was just remembered about this, given we had the Swedish metal.

This chap is a steam engine enthusiast, whose band does evening sets in the beer tent at steam festivals and similar. Gents of not UKness, do you have anything similar?

Hmm, I don't think we have much of drinking songs as finns are too busy with drinking part...

Wording has bit similar theme in this one, it is about straight six engine, story about getting one, putting it to car and doing races, with clever / funny wording. I'm not aware of english translations of that song.

I think that artist has performed at some cruising events, he has several songs that are perfect in car enthusiast point of view, wording is really good in them, but I doubt you are probably not getting much out from them.

My internet works this well, so I'm not spending much time on looking lyrics, also youtube search gives me only white page, they changed something few days ago and since then to see result I have had to open source code of the page, they are perfectly there, along with error messages of their poor coding....

Hi Jani.
I quiet liked that. Not my normal cup of tea
A lot of different styles of music in it.
Cheers Mark.
