HILIJAINEN KEVAT-"Sininen" CD
Wow, talk about being blindsided by an unexpected release. By looking at the CD layout and the photo of the band, I was thinking this was going to be some bad rock n' roll crap. Yet, when I played the CD, those perceptions where blown out of the water. This is rad Finnish hardcore that sounds like it could be from 1981-1984, not the year 2000. In the letter sent with the CD it says that the band originally started out playing TERVEET KADET covers, and you can definitely hear that influence in their music. It sounds like they should be on a one of those old Propaganda compilations with KAAOS and RIISTETYT. Killer stuff. (RC)
