Kotiteollisuus

Batman and Robin, Hall and Oates, hamburger and fries, Kotiteollisuus and Ilosaarirock Festival... there are some things that just seem to be made for each other. The love affair between Ilosaarirock Festival and the big and hairy stars of Eastern Finnish hard rock/heavy metal has flourished for more than ten years now, and is still going strong.

Though in the course of that time the band has travelled a long and winding road to the very top of Finnish rock music, and the vocalist Jouni Hynynen has gained – besides some more facial hair and a few extra pounds – also the status as an uncrowned king of the Finnish lad culture, on their near-home ground these little rascals are still treated like one's own sons. Or let us hear what Jouni Hynynen himself has to say about the subject in the band's tour diary: "The people from Joensuun Popmuusikot [the organisation behind Ilosaarirock Festival] came to the backstage, swallowed all our booze and in the end even stole our clothes. But, well, who could be mad at a bunch like that?"
