Talonmies Kalle – The Story Behind

I never really thought I would write songs for children. But since I broke up with my daughter’s mother some five years ago, I started write songs for my daughter – then three years old – which I missed and didn’t see too often. I started to make notes of how did little children behave and what they had in their minds. The picture of a Jesus statue in the bottom of a sea, and the fruit pomelo. The fear of ghosts, and the janitor who seems to fix anything broken.

Even though I wrote some twenty songs in a very short period of time, I was in doubt. When I was ten years old I was fired from the school choir which was obligatory for every child in the school. Later I realized that the headmaster, who led the choir, didn’t appreciate punk rock as much as Christian hymn singing…

Enter year 2016, and suddenly avantgarde musician, performer and sound designer Jussi Saivo suggested that we could record some of my stuff. He didn’t know that I had written songs for children, but I knew that he knew my taste of music, which was death, black and doom… And I got immediately inspired of the idea of doom for children… So in July, just before it was time to go to the forest to collect the blueberries, I packed my acoustic and headed to the studio. We recorded three songs, ate some apple cider vinegar marinated pork neck and agreed, that we’d take another session the next summer. Yeah, in short, that’s it. Have fun, and remember, it’s best enjoyed via an old school cassette player!
