Carrying on with posting some song and music video favorites from the 20 years that I’ve been making Onechord.net. Here’s the link to the monster playlist, because I don’t have the time to write a post about everything.
Next a few Finnish indie classics from the early years.
Starting with Sister Flo’s masterwork Tragician’s Hat from 2004. Maybe all of my early Finnish favorites haven’t aged perfectly, but this one still feels fresh every time I put it on. Such a special record.
Next trip down the memory lane to the shores of the Tourujoki river. The Rollstons were super important because a) I loved the music b) they become dear friends back when I still lived in Jyväskylä. Here’s one classic from the album Our Grain Could Fill Your Stadium.
And then there’s of course Bridget. They only released a couple of demos and a seven inch single, but nevertheless they are still one of my all-time favorite bands and one of the major reasons that this blog even exists. A lot of this stuff has probably vanished from the interwebs, but Come On In is still available due to being released on an international pop compilation.
Wrapping this nostalgic blast with the classic Big White Monkees song Stockholm. I have very fond memories of the crowd shouting Stockholm and Saku (or whatever was his Monkey name) coming back to stage to sing this as an encore. I’m stealing farkkujanne’s youtube video, because that’s probably the only place where this classic is still available.
