Slush and Burn! Right in time for X-Mas season,  British radio producer Cathy FitzGerald has finished on her feature on the reindeer races in Rovaniemi. The trailer comes with some “Snow” music from my album: Retiretki – Sleigh ride.
I strongly recommend listening to her story from where the polar circle starts and the lingam berries glow: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04lzvtv

A Merry Christmas to all of you!

Radio Show: Record Covers…

… and what’s inside. How often have you bought a record on a flee market or in a shop not knowing what’s inside? Some turned out great, some were just horrible. Some were bought in zero expectation because the cover was beautiful or super ugly anyway, others had tempting transparent or red or orange vinyl, picture disks too. Here comes a choice of cover descriptions, live on Revolten radio🙂 Don’t dare complain about the music, this is about imagery and feel…
