Let me introduce to you these four enthusiastic boys; Vesku, Arska, Otto and
Stixx (Tikku in finnish). They are Danny Lips and they come from the land of
the ice and snow, Helsinki, Finland.
These ice-fishers formed the band on spring 2006 with the Line-up: Vesku: vocals
& guitar, Otto: guitar, Arska: bass and Mr. Stixx the drums. The first demo
“Who´s been bad?” was released already on September 2006 and
now the friends just want to say Hola, Hello, Moi, Bon jour, Bon apétit,
etc. to all of you…anytime, everywhere…Yeah, they love to Rock and make
music with their own kind of way.
And now they have a new CD out called “Freefall” with four new rocking
songs. I got the CD at the video shoot to “Say something cool”, the
opening song on the new EP and a song that gets stuck in your head for ever.
That was in August, and somehow, finally I got to write this review about the
CD. Forgive me for being so late. The CD you can get at their page and by mailing
As I said, I was at the video shoot for “Say something cool”, I cannot
say I haven’t heard that song before, because they play it live and they
have it on their myspace page, but because of the video shoot I finally got
to listen to it actively and it just got stuck in my head for ever. Sab can
confirm that. This song is great!! It’s kicking ass and the lyrics are
sung clearly so that you understand every word easily and it gets stuck in your
head, I promise. But this is not the only great song on this CD, no, there are
three more. And I don’t say that because they pay me for that, they don’t…,
but because it is the truth. All songs kick ass and have potential. But another
one sticking out by getting stuck in your head is “take the shine out of
the sun”. Quite long title, but easy to sing along and remember. I hope
to hear some more great music of these four Finish guys some time soon. They
are awesome and ready to rock your mind.
