Huono Idea – Hiljaista Huutoa

Besides a tape-sampler of bands from Jyväskylä/Finland the debut from „Huono Idea“ is the first release on Soul Rokker Records. A 9-track tape with an handwritten added textsheet. The bassplayer of the punk-trio is Sauli Okker (a.o. „The Escapist“), for once a guest-writer in the „Ajatuksen Valo“ fanzine (interview with ‘Litovsk’ from Brest in issue 10/2014) and since spring 2016 the one behind the D.I.Y. label Soul Rokker Records. „Hiljaista Huutoa“, as the album title says, tells about unheard revolt. Language can’t be trusted anymore. Sometimes a scream is necessary, in particular when everybody looks away or remains silent.

The music is rich in variety; it is dynamic and rhythmic all the time, but yet not always on the line. The lyrics, as long as everything more or less works with your Finnish, are well comprehensible. The recordings and the songwriting have a sympathetic lo-fi manner, not too complicated, but (equally important) with a mind of its own. Every 30 seconds breath uncommon and rarely heard ideas and everything I do recognize pleases me. Actually, quite different from what the bandname („bad idea“) might suggest at first. All in all a quite concise thing, a little bit over too soon though, but through that lyrics and music get a certain hooking urgency. Influences (in lyrics and music) might be found among punk-bands like „Ratsia“ (to draw only one possible comparison to one of the better known punk classics from the past in Finland). But, who really wants to dig only there and repeat over and over again? „Ehkä kaikki muuttuu“/“Maybe everything changes“. For certain is: Huono Idea is D.I.Y. and punk in a small world, but claims itself justly within a broader network of friends – one of many other good 2016s. The tape exists in an edition of 50 copies only! Comes for half of a ‘kymppi’, i.e. 5,- (plus postage).
