Total run time

Vö/Releasebereits erschienen / already released 

That concert in Tavastia Club Helsinki happened quite a time ago (May 2004), but Kärtsy´s mimic art remained the same. Thanks to Solar Film more of his weird stage attitude was captured in excellent audiovisual quality, unfortunately there is no translation of the Waltari-mastermind´s Finnish audience address. The show rather represents the band´s Pop-phase, yet plenty of material illustrates their musical spectrum: 16 „Rare“ and „best of“-tracks in 72 minutes. Two more hours of bonus material cover four music videos, the first Waltari TV appearance in 1986, live-clips, tour life backstage impressions with goofy snap shots, sometimes just in bootleg-quality. At the remarkable making-of-section you can try celebrity-spotting: Gas Lipstick (HIM) and Ville Tuomi (Suburban Tribe) contribute backing vocals. Another bonus, the one-hour audio CD with Kärtsy´s Death Metal Symphony „Yeah! Yeah! Die! Die!“, provides one of the few successful blends of classical music and Metal. In order to understand the concept better I had preferred some more information in the booklet (e.g. lyrics). But finally: True value for money!
