PELLE MILJOONA & 1980 - Pelko Ja Viha 1979

Pelko Ja Viha (Fear & Anger) is the bands debut album and was released in spring of 1979 at Love Records. The album has been recorded at Love Studiossa early 1979 in Reino Isoaho. Before the album was titled Pelle Miljoona & 1980, the band performed under the name Pelle Miljoona & 1978 and Pelle Miljoona & 1979. The album cover image has two different versions. CD's and some vinyls have on the cover a picture of where Pelle Miljoonan's eyes are twisted and Tumppi Varonen which had a million facial expressions, well I never seen this. The vinyl's first edition covers were laminated, so the rumors. Anyway, fact is: Pelko Ja Viha is one of the most famous albums of the early 80's and is still hot alongside the motorway. The song 'Enää Itkeä Voit' is a Finnish cover version of Bob Dylan's 'Like A Rolling Stone' and is very cool played. I'm not a fan of Dylan, I mean he wrote good songs but he can't sing and so it's good when a band pick up one and interpreted this in their own way. This album was recorded by Pelle Miljoona (drums & vocals), Tumppi Varonen (drums & vocals), Ari Taskinen (bass) and Rubberduck Jones (guitars). Very good album by Helsinki's melody virtuoso's and this really turns me on.
