    Moi, en nyt jaksa ajatella englanniksi, mutta oon ihan samaa mieltä Wiidakosta. Joku oli repäissyt ne tyypit Kallion lukiosta (<- itseironiaa), enkä hirveästi lämmennyt, vaikka yritystä olikin. Mä sain aikaan tämmöisen biisilistan: Sid ja Nancy Ovisilmä Buster Keaton Kyynel Sodankylä Kokki, varas, vaimo ja rakastaja Pohjola Rocktähti sekoaa Ukkonen Rukous Attentaatti - Romanssi Luovuttanut enkeli Niistä Buster Keaton ja Ovisilmä ovat Romanssin lisäksi vanhempaa kamaa eli Kauniiden Kuvien ajalta. Ja encore-biisejä olivat nuo kaksi viimeistä (missasin ehkä jonkun kun sattui yksi hämmentävä tapaus, joten voi olla että niitä oli kolmekin). Loppunauhan jälkeen ei koskaan soiteta mitään, se on loppunauhan tarkoitus, luulen. Mutta minä en ainakaan kuullut Aavasaksaa, Katalaa kamaraa tai Sarvia ja hampaita. :D Mut ei se oo niin justiinsa. Kiva että edes joku jaksaa kirjoittaa jälkisanoja, etenkin englanniksi. Suomeksi multa voisi melkein onnistuakin.

    Well, thanks for the setlist...how sure are you about how correct would that be though? I'll edit my entry whenever I have the time if you are either pretty sure or have a good source. Unfortunetly I can't understand no more than a few words of the rest you've written since I speak very little of the language still (moved here a month ago...) so please translate it if you want to be understood :P

    Oh, sorry, I though you were Finnish, 'cause there's not so many people outside Finland who listens Maj Karma... But I didn't write anything so important, just that there was two encore's (the two last songs in the setlist) and that I'm glad that someone has energy to write reviews. And I agree with you about Wiidakko. :) I'm quite sure my setlist is correct, 'cause I wrote down all the songs right after the band had started them. I think I didn't hear the songs Aavasaksa, Katala kamara or Sarvia ja hampaita. But I'm not so sure were there two or three encores because I wasn't paying attention after the beginning of Romanssi (I just love that song)! And I said also that there were two other old songs in addition to Romanssi: Ovisilmä and Buster Keaton.

    Oh, thanks. I do agree, I'd like to see more people writing reviews as well but not all have the patience or skills to put down to paper their memories, I guess. I really feel the need to, no matter how bad the krapula is the next day ;) And I believe encore is what you call to the breaks the band does before returning to stage to play more songs. It's possible there was one, because I think I went out for a while before Romanssi was played, so it'd be one encore followed by two songs. And I also had the same idea, of writing down all the songs that are played but sometimes I'm either just not familiar with some or them, or am busy with the camera/having a blast at them...but props to you for being able to pull it out somehow :) I will correct the setlist soon. Ovisilmä and Buster Keaton are two examples of songs I hadn't heard before last friday so I'd never have a clue until being better informed like I've been just now. Kiitos.

    I have understood that encore is when the band gets back, not when they have a break (the word encore is French and it means again). So the band goes away like they're not coming back, but 'cause the audience makes so much noise, they must come back and play more. Some decades ago the audience used to yell "encore", but no one does that anymore. Okay, maybe a bit off topic. :D I must recommend the earlier albums too. My favorites are Kaakao and Ääri. Hope you'll like them!

    You're right about the encore thing. I don't know why I've been mislead in the way I was for such a long time. I guess the fact I didn't get to see bands live as often as now could be behind that. And thanks for the recommendations, I will try to look into them in the near future (if it's easy to find their older albums...)

    Thanks for the review! It's very refreshing to see well written review appearing on the related journals section instead of all those useless memes people keep tagging. I'm surprised to see how short their set was considering they only had one support band -at previous Jouluräyhä's there's always been two and Maj Karma has played around 15-17 songs. I wish I could have come to this event since Jouluräyhä truly is a tradition but this year I had no other choice than skip it, so thanks again for reviewing it, hopefully you'll keep writing more. btw since I guess you are in Helsinki area, you are happy to know that Maj Karma has already two gigs coming up there :)

    Thanks a lot for your compliments, it feels rewarding for me that people enjoy what I write and encourage me further to keep on writing. I certainly will keep on writing reviews, actually I have further 3 of them written down on paper to pass to the computer (from the events I attended this week - first night of Helldone, Nahkamiekka and Kaveria ei jätetä). Interesting what you've said about past editions of Jouluräyhä, I had no idea. I hope you can retake your tradition already this year. I've noticed the gigs you added. Not really the best venues around Helsinki IMO, but since I really enjoyed them so much I'll try to attend both if it's possible for me then. Two questions arise though, how do you get the word out of their upcoming gigs so quickly and why aren't you listed as attending any of them still?

    Jouluräyhä has changed much throughout these few years it's been around. Before last year, it has always been held on the 25th day. Also first ones had santa (very drunk and by the end of the night also naked) on stage throwing xmas presents (band shirts, albums, cd-singles & once a cucumber) to the audience. But I guess since Nosturi is an all ages venue..santa had to go. It's in Finnish, but here's an example what was going on in 2006: http://www.iltasanomat.fi/uutiset/kotimaa/uutinen.asp?id=1292644 :D What comes to the gigs, I've learned that best way to know what Maj Karma is up to, is to keep an eye on their booking agency's site http://www.nem-booking.fi/ . Information appears there soooo much earlier and gives more time to plan things out. Normally I would try to go to as many nearby Maj Karma gigs as possible, but now as I'm travelling abroad in Feb, I simply can't afford it all. Plus I also want to see them in venues / cities where I haven't seen before so I'm aiming for places like Kokkola instead of eg oh-so-familiar Helsinki (until I realized their new album is set to be released on the same day as the Tavastia gig is, so I guess I have to come to Helsinki that day, haha).
