THE LEGENDARY TORNIO SESSIONS IN 1994
You can't HELP those guys. Just HEP them. HEP is a mood: insider wanting to get out, outsider wanting to get in, the man in the middle in a desperate confusion about being a man in the middle, desperately wanting to get out or in, or, perhaps, even more desperately trying to be BOTH in and out at the same time. It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it. (But why, oh why? Just let it be. Do something else. Try bowling. Very nice if You know which way is up and down, and if not, we are in trouble. On Thursday nights it's a bit cheaper, nobody goes there anyway, don't forget Your fake student-card, try to look like a student.) Somebody's living in a closet, in privacy of a vacuum, peeping through a keyhole. Some other person (and, sometimes, quite often actually, happens, a personess, if You don't mind the politically-non-correct expression) or, (as in the case of the closet-guy being actually a lady, an inside-looking male trying to get some) desperately curious, peeping through the very same keyhole, trying to look inside.) or, in fact looking one-to-one eye-to-eye. SCARED. What the fuck is that? A woman? Are they really soft and sweet and kind (as Uncle Harry said in 1941, and yes, they are)? Inaff.
SO FAR: Crap Level: 100. TO BUSINESS. LISTEN. TWO WORDS: ROCK'N´ROLL ! RHYTHM&BLUES ! POPPOPOP&POP! ZZZZZZZZAZZZ ! ABSOLUTE FREEDOM TO SAY ”FUCK OFF” TO EVERYTHING WE THINK THAT WE, AFTER LONG AND IMPARTIAL RESEARCH, CONSIDER A WASTE OF HUMAN TIME AND RESOURCES.
We don't like ”modern” concert music because we know it ! We have actually sat down on our respective asses and listened to it, a lot of it! (A Human Being must do what a Human Being must do.) It's really hard to believe how BAD IT IS! Crap, more crap, Kaija Saariaho, more womit please, Eino-Juhani Rautavaara, crap, 459 pyramid-highs heap of absolute shit. And More crap! Bring more crap! The folks who deliver the MONEY love absolute shit! Bring in the penguins! Where in Esa-Pekka Salonen? We need more manure! More Kaija Saariaho! It's modern, I't post-modern, post-post-modern, post-office-modern, a modern post-office turned into a post-post-modern ex-post-office, now an (”ironic”,”cool”) place to be ”ironic”, ”cool” and ”creative”, of course the architect (THE ARCHITECT HERR SPEER to you) never heard about doors and windows. It does not mean anything. No feelings. No Music. Difficulty has nothing to do with it. Shostakovich or Schnittke is not easy listening. But hey, that's MUSIC. Dmitri and Alfie are called composers, because (this may come as a shock to you) they were free human beings (living in a prison), and they had the rare ability to turn their feelings into music. Free human beings, free music, free musicians. With a touch (or two) on pure genius. That is The Leo Bugariloves. THE FREEST MUSIC EVER RECORDED. AND IT SWINGS!
THAT WAS OUR TWO WORDS. THANK YOU SO MUCHO! SAY HELLO TO UNCLE ALFONSO AND THE TWINS! BACK TO BUSINESS.
