I’ve been lucky enough to be able to go over to Finland for a week for the last couple of years. It is an amazing place and the people have a wonderful grasp on life. Last year when I was there I made a point of meeting up in Tampere with the very special Sami Sanpakkila. The man behind the brilliant Fonal Records but also a film maker and artist in his own right. After a few drinks courtesy of Music Finland we agreed it would be great to show some of his films at this year’s Counterflows. Unfortunately, Sami now can’t come over to introduce his films as we planned but we are showing them anyway at the CCA on Saturday 6th April at 1.30.
The other thing I asked Sami was to recommend something new that I could get to the Counterflows festival. Jarse was his first choice and after I checked them out and heard their unbridled psychedelic mayhem I agreed that we should get them over. I have to say their tech spec was one of the funniest I’ve ever read. Be warned it will be something else!
