men in black: C.O.T.D. version

standing on the shoulders of giants

As you might be aware, if you follow trendy social networking sites, Kimi Kärki’s second solo album, “Eye for an Eye”, came out last week to rapturous applause by… ehhm, Kimi’s mates, mostly. Among the album’s nine (that’s 9!) tracks, just the one features a guest appearance from Patrick Walker, singer/songwriter of Warning and 40 Watt Sun, which is something Kimi wants to make sure everyone knows about:

With such repetitive bashing on the head, one could be forgiven for thinking that this is actually a Patrick Walker release (for which Kimi is simply collecting the royalties, natch!). Which might as well be what the latter wants.

And yet, we’re just cherry-picking here, as we’d need an entire blog to include all instances where the artist formerly known as Peter Vicar casually name-dropped Pat while pimping his new album… But those examples are enough to give you an idea of the lengths some people are willing to go to, to shift some more units.

You didn’t see as many mentions of the other guests on the album, for example, did you? That’s because, unlike Warning and 40 Watt Sun, they actually sell LESS (if any) copies than Kimi, and therefore do not qualify as platforms in Dr. Kärki’s cunning marketing plan…

Rumours that the japanese pressing (ho! ho!) of the album will include a cover of “With a Little Help from my Friends” have not been confirmed as of going to press…

20 Buck Spin

Apparently hookers in Lohja go for as low as $20…

Let us take a minute to say that it does indeed pain us that more and more Reverend Bizarre stuff finds its way to bargain bins around the world. Such a real shame, that TRUE ART by ARTISTS who “like to keep TOTAL CONTROL!” gets depreciated. So, so sad. So very, very sad. *sigh* O Tempora O Mores.

…because spring is finally with us and sometimes we’re too bored to laugh at the Finnish idiots. Other times they don’t need our help for that, either.

Let him who hath understanding reckon, etc, etc.
