Thanxs to Caro!
You planned to go
to studio soon! Recording is a very hard work, it takes a lot of concentration
and time...anyway you have to repeat again and again...what are you doing after
a hard working day in the studio to keep the balance?
Snack: Actually it
is not so hard! The job in the studio it is one of my favourite things to do!
Create new music and stuff like this! When you are working you can’t think of
anything else, your focused on the music…all the time in your head you hear some
new sounds and voices…yeah but it is not so much hard work!
How many songs have
you planed for the new album?
Jonne: We have many
new ideas…like 15 or 16, don’t know exactly! We have tried already only one, one
Snack: Yeah one
song! But we have a good feeling about that!
Jonne: Yeah! But
there is no word yet…you know; only the melody…instrumental…I was singing
Will you also tour
Germany after the release?
Snack: I think of
Jonne: First plan
was that we can come over here and bring the record out in spring. But let’s see
what is gonna happen…cause the Dvd is coming out first! So I don’t know!
Snack: And we are
Jonne: We are going
to China and Russia and hopefully there is touring some Italy…
Caro: And what
about Spain? They are waiting for so long!
Jonne: Let’s see, I don’t know! I don’t wanna take too many things at the same
time, because they are going to eat each other! As a band we are in some kind of
turning point that we can start all over again!
You did this Queen
Cover Song “Too much love will kill you” with your brother Ville and some other
musicians, what do you think about doing some more songs in cooperation with
Snack: And we have
always done so…for example with Ville from Sentenced…
Snack: And then we
have in Anorectic done it with Dave Lindholm, he is playing Guitar…
Jonne: It brings
more perspectives…I would like to sing in finnisch, some day, some old
traditional…just one song!
B: Maybe you should
put it to the show, to see if the fans will like it!?
Jonne: Oh no…not to
But you also like
bands like Uniklubi?
Jonne: Yeah…but not
like that…totally different, just like a old Finnish traditional!
Snack: Yeah…an old
Jonne: From the
sixties! It is like therapy you know! Instead of touring or something!
What do you think
about doing a song with both of your brothers?
Did you ever
thought about something like this?
Jonne: Maybe in the

great! Tommi has…
Snack: Already we
did it once! On Tommi’s birthday!

this song! He was on the stage…

smashed a guitar!
C: That is Rock N
Jonne: He has a
really great voice…really high…how did you say…he has a really high…
(aks something in
Jonne: He can sing
really high! And it doesn’t sound bad! Probably one of those reasons why he
bought this record label. So now he is able to release his own music!
Snack: Yeah! (Both
of them smile)
C: And he can be
his own manager, he can decide everything!
And what about you

this book about Robbie Williams,
Is he one of your

C: So you felt the
was this…like a Teddybear but plastic…and there was all this autographs…but it
would be nice to meet him!
C: What do you
think about his way of life and his career?
Jonne: I think we
all do have problems; we are all just human beings! There are no robots or
machines. But some people don’t admit those problems, and some people don’t show
it! When you are in this business, you have only a few secrets, you know what I
Snack: And there is
so much temptation that you can easily fell in problems!
Jonne: And when you
are going bigger and bigger…I mean when you are getting more and more
success…all this media and newspapers and magazines start to write…
B: Shit about you?
B: I know…
Jonne: They try to
search from the past…all this…
Snack: Pick up
dirty things from the past!
B: And everything
is made to a rumour whatever it is they are using it for a big headline…
Snack: And if they
don’t have any news they pick something…
Jonne: And Robbie, he has had really this kind of rock n roll attitude, from the
start with Take That. He was the bad boy! He seems like a nice person to make a
Snack, are there
female musicians that you like very much?
course Madonna is one! I like this Ray of Light Album!
Janis Joplin…yeah I
think Janis Joplin is the biggest artist that I like!

the chance to spend one day with one of them,
and you should organize it, how would it look like?
Jonne: With Kylie?
C: Yeah! (Laughs) I
Jonne: What would I
Snack looks at
Jonne and they both starts to giggle
Silence for more
than a minute they just looking at each other smiling!
Could it be that
Jonne’s face is blushing a little bit?
B: (Need to laugh
too because Jonne and Snack are looking at each other smiling but saying
Jonne: I would
probably start to lick her face! You know what I mean! (Big smile) (I’m not sure
does he really mean her face? ;-))
Snack: If I could
be with Janis Joplin I just would be playing piano and she would be singing…just
If you got the
chance to be someone else for one day, who would you like to be?
Presley! Because I curiously would like to know how it is to play in this so
called heavenly orchestra! Is there gonna be this everlasting chance! Going on
C: Ok but have you
ever thought about being someone normal, not famous? Not playing in a band?
Jonne: No…if you
will get that feeling you can stop doing music and go to work in some Hamburg or
whatever…you know what I mean!
C: Yeah I know!
Ok…I think our time is over!
