22 Pistepirkko in hiatus #music
My jukebox put on 22 Pistepirkko's debut "Piano, Rumpu ja Kukka" (one of the records you put on for fun and take off in sincerity), and that prompted me to look at the News page on their website.
The note from June 16, 2015 is both heartbreaking, beautiful and instills hope.
Writing this I realize that that is not a bad way to sum up what 22 Pistepirkko means to me.
The gist is:
22-p will be 35 years young this year.
We tried to make an album to celebrate
with you all:
Made a bunch of tunes, some of them are really
Brothers fell in a fight ring,
this time it ended ugly.
After several bow wow wows =
22-p needs a pause.
Now we are back in peace/calm.
We'll play these summer gigs
and quit for a while.
When we feel the urge to R&R with 22-p we'll
continue, as has been the case from 1980 to 2015.
