It`s just the second time that the "Hair Rock Special" takes place but it seems that the new events series is already now established, because again there is a lot of hustle and bustle going on in the club area downstairs. This time no one less than Reckless Love singer Olli Herman as DJ who knows well how to entertain the crowd before, between and after gigs with his record collection. So his first break comes when Vanity Ink. enter the stage.
Most of today`s audience might be here for the Finns around frontwoman Annabella who represents the "Rock`n`Roll on high heels" from the very first second while guitarist Juha Bandit throws himself to the audience`s feet in the true sense of the word. True to the title of their current album "More Senseless Random Behaviour" also singer Annabella writhes on the stage, walks around the audience or rocks with the tambourine by turns while guitarist Jussi and bassist Miki Peltola cause optical pleasure also for the female concert visitors by their naked upper bodies later on, the latter already presented it to us recently as the bass player of Texas Terri Bomb! Titles like "Rock And Roll", "Smell The Party" or the felicitous Murderdolls cover "I Love To Say Fuck" speak for themselves: Who just wants to have fun and to rock and getting wondered by how diverting a concert can be should just go to a gig of Vanity Ink.. Right now in Sept/Oct there are touring through Europe... Don`t miss it!
The whole thing is only topped by the headliner Jettblack from the UK, who isn`t that known in Finland yet like Vanity Ink. but takes the audience by storm when they start their show with the same song which also opens their album "Get Your Hands Dirty" - "Slip It On". It seems that today`s offer of half naked men robs the senses of some ladies, in any case drummer Matt Oliver and Jon Dow who are responsible for the "half naked facts" in Jettblack can`t really complain about a lack of attention. The last one shares the parts of vocals and guitar with Will Stapleton while Tom Wright serves the bass. From cowboy boots to bandanas to really good Hardrock songs everything is offered by Jettblack and that`s at the same time the basis of the success of the "Hair Rock Special" series, too. They perform e.g. "Fooled By A Rose", "Mother Fucker", "War Between Us" and, of course, the brandnew single "Two Hot Girls". Doubtlessly, we hope that the guys will find the way into the land of the moose again soon, but you could also book a trip to the United Kingdom where they are (now in Sept/Oct) touring with the band whose singer stands at the turntable tonight.
And so the circle closes before the "Hair Rock Special" will enter the third round in September 2010 with amongst others Crazy Lixx. And, of course: STALKER will be there for you...
