Rane & Co. and Puureki at the February Komitea Club

The Komitea Club programme for the spring 2018 has now been fully confirmed. UPDATE: Immediately after publishing the progamme, euroSIDious unfortunately had to cancel their gig. We are looking for a replacement. UPDATE 2: Mikko Kuusto came to the resque, and plays as the warm-up act in March.

The roots blues band Rane & Co. will play as the main attraction at our next club on Saturday February 17th. Last Saturday they had a comprehensive recording session of ten songs, and we’re hoping to release their first Komitea single by the next Komitea Club.

Supporting Rane & Co. at the club we’ll see the stoner rock band Kivireki’s acoustic reincarnation Puureki. Their next single is currently in mastering.

Here are some cheerful pictures from Puureki’s acoustic rehearsals.

Our little spectacle where we live dubbed the whole Edvin Laine’s Unknown Soldier movie in Kaurismäki style with a Carpenteresque soundtrack, was received well.

Except for this one bloke, who ranted to the Cosmic Comic Cafe staff that the performers don’t seem to know anything about war. Factually he was of course right: None of us has been in a war. But we’ve been to movies! And bars.

We take the reaction as a small victory. Indignation, if anything, measures the value of a performance.

… yeah, this is better.

It is LIVE, euroSIDious in the costume.
