| Interview with Antti and Snack
Race of Porvoo 15.08.2009
B: Should we start?
B: Ok…How did it come to this idea to produce the new album in LA?
A: Jonne met this guy…the producer in Helsinki…he lives in LA and has this
And he was interested in working with us…and than Jonne took a flight to LA and
visited there about two month ago to check out the places, to check out the
studio and the guy…getting to know each other a little bit or something…than he
thought that it would be a good idea and this guy is really exited to work with
us. The record company said that it is no problem to go there…I haven’t ever
been in America…so it is my first time…
B: Are you exited about going to LA to start the recording for the new record?
S: Yeah of course it is always exiting to do new things.
B: Is there something in LA that you wanted to see?
A: Lemmy from Motörhead…
B: Does he live there?
S: I would like to see this bar where the doors have been found…Whisky a Go Go
B: Nice…So you will have some time to concentrate on the new album without any
trouble around. You know what I mean? If you record it in Finland you always
have other things around that could disturb or destroy concentrating…
A: Yes. I know one…we played in Mexico City…I guess it was in Mexico…with London
after Midnight…I talked with their bass player his name is Randy and he lives in
LA so maybe I should contact him so we would have someone who knows the places…I
don’t think that he knows that we are coming.
B: Ok back to the album…how many demo songs have you finished yet?
B: Can you tell me something about the working title of the new album?
S: we don’t have any one yet…I think it is gonna be out later, maybe next week.
It is quite early…
B: According to this
event…I heard you have done some Race here too?
B: So today the main theme is about this race and cars…
B: If you would be a car, which one would it be?
A: I wouldn’t be a car…I would be a small moped!
S: I don’t know…maybe this…Hippi-Car…Volkswagen…you know?
B: Yes! Like a mini van…
B: If money wouldn’t matter which kind of car would you buy?
A: I definitely would buy nothing new and nothing super fast…maybe some old nice
car from 50ies or 60ies. Some kind of stylish Cadillac or some kind of Ranch
S: I would like to have a Harley Davidson…motorcycle…it is my favourite.
B: Have you taken a look at any cars here?
B: And did you like one?
A: Yes, there was this small one…
S: Yes this small one…
A: It was small and different to the others…
S: Yes…that was nice.
A: Oh look there’s some smoke…a crash…
B: Oh no…have you ever been in a car crash?
A: I have been…
B: Oh and was it your fault?
A: No it was when I have been a kid and I was driving with my parents…I don’t
remember but my parents told me later that we were driving to my grandmothers
place in Finland and it was night time and than suddenly a really big Bird, an
owl, was flying in front of our car…and we were driving 120 kilometres per
hour…and at this kind of speed the window was immediately broken…and the big
bloody dead owl was inside of our car…
B: Sounds not really nice…
A: But I don’t remember that…my parents told me…later…and I asked …And did the
owl die? (ironic)…Yes!
B: Haha no it was just sleeping!
A: Unfortunately they didn’t take any pictures…I would have liked to see it!
B: Have you met any of this famous finnish drivers?
A: I just met Markus Gröhnholm he is quite famous around the world…
A: Did you hear from this famous driver who won lots of raced and in the end he
died in a helicopter in his own Backyard? Not in a car race accident…this is
B: Yes…but you never know what will happen next…
A: That’s true!
B: Ok all of you like this
Playstation games…do you like to play races there?
A: Yeah actually my favourite game is Crash (???) Ralley…that’s the best I
bought this game in 1998…so I have played it more than ten years on Playstation
one…I don’t even have Playstation three…so I only play old games.
B: There is another question about games, which games do you prefer on
S: I prefer FIFA and NHL…sport games…Football games.
A: I play this old games…like…I don’t know if you have heard of this kind
of…weird and nice game called worms…you have a team, for example of four
worms…and you have to eliminate other worms which are against you. Or you can
play with a friend a kind of war game…this is one of my favourites.
S: I like shooting games. It is nice to shoot!
A: Which I don’t play at all.
B: Ok…does anyone of you have a driving license?
S: I had one…but I don’t have it anymore…
A: I have one.
B: Does it take long to get it? I heard it should be really hard…
A: It took around six month…
B: So you didn’t fail the first time?
A: No I didn’t fail anything…I passed the driving test at first try and than you
have to do this paper stuff…
A: And I also passed this at the first time. It wasn’t any problem. What takes
that long is when they teach you!
B: In Germany lots of people fail the first time…I don’t know why. Maybe the
teachers are so bad or the questions are too hard…
A: It is quite normal here in Finland…but I was so lucky to make it.
B: I have one last question, you have been on the new Album Cover of Uniklubi…
B: Is this a new Tattoo on your site?
A: You mean this one? (shows the tattoo)
B: Yes…no I think it is not
really new…I have it for some time…
B: Ok but I haven’t seen it before…but maybe the reason is that you have worn
clothes! (laughing) So that was all for today…I thank you really much for your
A: Thank you!
