Waltari might not be so known outside Finland, but in their homeland the band is basically a cult act, with roots in the eighties and extremely solid discography in their pockets. Imagine a radio-friendly, ultimately catchy mix of metal riffs, hard-rocking vocals and electronical elements - the band has always thought forwards, outside the box. Waltari is a unique band, of that there can be no doubt, and they have always done whatever they wanted and will continue to do so.
One of the UK’s finest Rhythm & Blues Bands, Nine below Zero, formed in 1979 and named themselves after the famous Sonny Boy Williamson song. In 1980 they signed to A&M Records and released the seminal “Live at the Marquee” album. By the end of that year they had moved from selling out the Marquee to selling out the Hammersmith Odeon. In 1981 their first studio album “Don’t point your finger” was released and the band play alongside The Kinks & The Who. They also make appearances on the Old Grey Whistle Test and the South Bank show.
