In the Rectory of the Bizarre Unicorn

Jari Pohjonen, formerly also known as Earl of Void, i.e. the drummer in most of Reverend Bizarre’s recorded output (but not a founding member), celebrated his 40th earlier this month, which must be big news, as Peter Vicar interrupted the steady stream of “check out how great they say my new Lard Vicar album is” posts on Reverend Bizarre’s facebook page to let us know about it.

We have a bit more respect for Jari than we do for the other two members of Reverend Bizarre’s last active line-up (which is not saying much really, as the respect we have for those two is nil), so we’ll simply repost the published photos from the event and let you enjoy them, perchance also to draw your own conclusions…

Kimi Kärki took some valuable time out from trying to explain to reluctant buyers of his new platter that “there is absolutely nothing that can be done” about the disc’s eccentricities (noted in our previous post), to perform some songs and air his feet in some delectably classy sandals…


We’re not sure what exactly is happening in this photo, but we assume the technician (the less portly man, on the right) is applying autotune to Kimi’s vocals in an attempt to keep the guests from leaving early…


Possible set inclusions: “By this Tiara I rule”, “The March of the War Unicorns”, “How to burn a CD with no track index”, “Beware of the man with two sandals”.

Happy belated birthday, Jari! 🙂 we mean it…


Why buy just once, when you can buy twice? [vol.1]

Sami Hynninen and his lovely friend Jari (aka Earl of Void) have re-released their KLV ep for Record Store Day 2015 (that was yesterday)… Although all the material included had already been available on “Niin Musta On Maa”, the CD that many, many Reverend Bizarre fans ordered from Sami’s good friends in Chile, but few actually received, or saw a refund for.



So, now that good and kind Sami has decked his faraway friends with enough cash to live the good life and take annual trips to the Roadburn Festival with, the time has finally come for the artists to make some money as well…

You can reward Sami and Jari for getting you ripped off and then saying they had nothing to do with it by buying KLV’s “Valkeus” ep from Levykauppa X:

which also sells the original Emissary records CD:

So, which one should you go for? Hmm, decisions, decisions… Get them both, we here at DWA say… Nothing is as fulfilling as lining the pockets of greedy irresponsible “artists”.
