Shock and Awe! Notoriously Reclusive Artist to Perform Live !

Shy introvert Sami Albert Hynninen, who forsook the corrupt mortal world to stay at home and have mindless arguments on facebook, will be gracing the stage with his new flight of fancy, Tähtiportti, this coming weekend:

Sami and his new best friends (TM) will be taking to the stage of Ääniwalli, Helsinki, where they will be able to astound the gathered masses with faithful renditions of songs from their Svart-released debut (and most likely only) album, plus, possibly, some surprise tracks. We say “faithful renditions”, as, due to the electronic/programmed nature of the “music”, any and all allusions to “playing live” are… funny, to say the least.

Sami very helpfully posted all relevant info on his facebook page, which he loves so much, including a direct link to the online ticket merchant, where those interested in attending this groundbreaking event can purchase tickets at the click of a button. Isn’t it great, making things easy for your fans, instead of asking them to pay triple postage so you can “have something released in Chile”, Sami? Always nice to see people learning things all the way to the mature age of 39.

If you’re living in Finland, or willing to travel, you can part with your cash here:

We hope the creative minds of the finnish TV world are aware of this momentous circumstance, and realize on time what a “Get Him To The Greek”-styled documentary is waiting to be filmed in the next 48 hours…

The staff of Doomwatchers Anonymous unfortunately cannot make it to the concert, but we have arranged to spend saturday evening at home, reading old interviews where Sami is whining about how he loathes playing live in front of a paying audience. F**k it, we might even spin an old Reverend Bizarre record, to complete the experience.

Break a leg, Sami! Our thoughts are with you, as always…

Those of us old enough to remember the glory days when notorious attention seeker Sami Albert Hynninen would inform his fans of his daily exploits, including but not limited to, bin diving, getting beaten up and thrown in prison, and having hot baths, via his 352-posts-per-day routine on his old band’s forum, were reasonably driven to tears of despair when he announced that, alas, he would forsake the mortal world to become a recluse, living in a flat with no internet connection, electricity or hydraulic toilet.

Some of us were even politely amused when he gave a series of interviews to announce his reclusivity.

Well, now we can all rejoice as Sami has rejoined his old girlfriend, facebook, and new mistress, tumblr, in an effort to keep his multitudes of fans in the loop with regards to his enlightened, esoteric ways:

Just remember, he’s still a recluse, a wise man who has forsaken this cruel world for the sanctity of his collection of obscure recordings, an obtuse denier of the popular online forms of communication, a pariah, a self-exiled wizard king, a delicate flower in the barren desert of the internet.
