man this thing is funny :DD i just read he lyrics to if i could choose now that it's all kevin bacon and it's so fucking funny. this is by far the best april fool's joke i've ever come across
I have many almost complete songs. None completely complete (wow, way to put it).
I'm in a band now so the style will probably change a little.. Or not really change but the style of the songs may vary. Which is good. I'm still into grunge and doing grunge songs anyway. Not going to remove anything good, only add more. Iiro puts his touch on my songs and I put mine on his songs, it's been working great. We have recorded "Back Alive" once again (now it sounds really good), a song called "If a Man Can't Dance", a song that he wrote called "Veil" and what else now... Well some stuff that I've been working on alone so far. Work, social life and sleeping takes all of my (our) time so we're progressing in a strange way: most of the time we do nothing, but when we do we get a shitload of things done.
Our band's name is Empire Grotesque and we play rock 'n roll music.

Add my band page on Facebook so you'll be able to stay tuned easily. I'll start updating it very soon and I'll put some extra tracks and shit there probably. EP leftovers and shit. Also some random comments and pictures. If you're a fan it should be interesting!
here it is!
Isn't it amazing how you can bend the truth and make it sound entirely different from what it originally was? By the way, if you tell the story but leave out all the stuff that could hurt your own case, is it considered lying? *Cause I do fucking consider so.
and in other news:
I have made new songs, I think I'm in the middle of making 55 different concept albums at the same time which is why it is so hard to release an individual song right now...
Here's a list, and this is just the new songs:
Thumbs Up (the House of Parliament)
If a Man Can't Dance
Mr. Miller and the Never-ending Blues
When the Black Cat Died
She's a Schizophrenic
Three Views on the Pit
Today I recieved the official papers from work saying basically that "YOUR WORK HERE ENDS AFTER ONE MONTH"
Then I went to buy cigarettes.
And as I was buying 'em I found out that there's not enough money on my account to buy even some fucking cigarettes.

So I'm totally broke, kicked out of work and OUT OF CIGARETTES
What a lovely day.

This took me a while but now it's done! Hopefully you can expect another EP this year as well. I can't tell if I'm more excited about having finished this one or about being able to start recording the next one. I'm pretty fucking excited. I hope you like it!
Okay, here's a little something so you people don't completely forget about me. Got my ass up and recorded an old song. Crunchy stuff. I like it. I have lots of ideas but I guess I'm kinda waiting to have a band to really get this thing going. My bandmate Iiro is a great composer and we're going to make some really good rock music.
I'll release that fucking acoustic ep someday, it will be on bandcamp and probably here and it will be free of charge. I don't know what the songlist will look like anymore since I keep losing interest in song after song. Need to take a break and see. But it's coming, not that anyone cares.
Merry christmas for everybody!
All I can tell ya is that santa claus, my ol' buddy, remembered me this christmas and you can be expecting new much better music pretty soon! LET'S GET THIS PARTY STARTED!!!!!!
Can you fuckin' believe it? So drunk that I passed out against the wall with a pizza slice in my hand/mouth. This one is something else :D
This was taken a while ago, it was a halloween dress-up party, that robe belonged to the guy I'm forming a band with. I was dressed up as a woman.
I changed some of the songs for the EP because it's taking me such a long time to finsih it I have already started thinking that some of the songs on the original tracklist were bad. After changing the songs the big picture of the ep changed radically so I had to change the name also. It's now A Small Emergency EP. Here's the tracklist I have in mind right now:
Smash the Hourglass
Eggs, Bacon and a Goddamn Gun
She Wants To Shine
I was rehearsing with one guy this week, we're forming a band. First I guess we'll play some acoustic shows with just the two of us. We tried some of my songs, and some already sounded pretty good. Then we played some AIC and Faith no More covers. Stripsearch was sounding awesome. I had already forgotten how nice it is to play with somebody. I'll put a youtube video next time we rehearse (if I remember to do that)!
I forgot my guitar in where we rehearsed so I can't record now although I'd like to :( All of the songs are recorded except She Wants To Shine. That one is half-way done. I had to drop Hello Goodbye cause I wasn't satisfied. Maybe on the next EP which I have already planned. The artwork is something that doesn't seem to happen too fast :D
But remember, A Small Emergency EP, that's what it will be! You'll understand the name when you hear the songs!
