The theme of the evening is summer and these three bands have been part of my summer soundtrack for a long time.
The lead single of their third and last album Suudelmilla that was released in 1998. Suudelmilla was and still is one of the greatest finnish albums ever released. Eventhough Seikkailuun isn’t my favourite track of the album, it’s still a marvellous song.
Poverty Stinks: Summer Will Never End
Poverty Stinks is also a perfect music for sunny outdoor picnics. A criminally overlooked band that created a bunch of great pop albums and a huge amount of perfect pop songs. This single Summer Will Never End from 1993 is certainly one of them.
Aknestik: Kesällä ei mennä nukkumaan
Aknestik is a band that I rarely listen to during the other three seasons, but in the summertime albums like Onni and especially Säätiedotuksia merenkulkijoille seem like the best thing ever. This summer anthem is from the album Onni which was released back in 1994.
