Music

The emphasis is on Nordic bands. Why? It's just how my taste has moved on. Some of these pages may get across the good things I've enjoyed from the very varied bands from those scenes, especially from Finland. You think it's a little obscure? Possibly. But from my perspective, I've had a phase of trying out a lot of music, from America and the UK and elsewhere, and now I've settled into this and I'm very happy with it. I've been pleasantly surprised to find that not all Nordic bands produce either Death Metal or Eurovision pop. And that there are some terrific songwriters around, singing in English or in their own language. And since I've come to love the sound of Finnish, that's where most of my interest is focused now.
