Listen: Smack - On you

Smack was a band I found through those mix cds you get free when you buy the magazine. They had made a cover of Paint it Black and I later found out it usually is their version playing in radio in Finland rather than the original. It was a good cover, so I wanted to know more about the band. One of their own songs have been made a cover by Nirvana actually.
This is one of those mornings you need to get energetic and keep that energy, hence this record. It's pure rock'n'roll in young, raw, sweaty form. Waking up just now, making some coffee and cleaning a the house, in couple hours to the work and I will be at my bed again around..05ish. For about 5½ hours, then I need to be going again. Anyway, the lead singer Claude was a wonderful poet too, I have his book, Julmia ovat valvotut unet, full of dark, mysterious poems.

Listen: Nightwish - Wishmaster

As a teenager I didn't listen much music before I found a wonderful penpal from Joensuu. We wrote quite a lot about music since is was his passion. This penpal introduced me to Nightwish and my godparents bought me a collection of their albums as birthday present. This is actually one of records I tend to listen every now and then, perfect music for cleaning since it gives me energy.

Listen: Patti Smith - Twelve

I'm going to listen all records I own. Twelve is a record containing only covers, which is something I normally would avoid. However, the cover art and cheap prize made me buy this about a year ago. This is my to go album, when I want to feel like a strong woman and I'm alone at home. Some of the songs make me dance.
