As a courtesy to the band, this review is written in English.
You know that feeling you get when you see one of your favourite bands play live for the first time, and it is amazing from start to finish? Like you actually don’t know how to live afterwards? You’ve peaked in life, in a way. Well, Teksti-TV 666 made all those things happen for me yesterday. I felt like a total fanboy, got a signed poster and everything.
Never have I seen so many guitars on stage before. And to be honest it is a long time since I’ve seen a band as tight as these Finnish guys were. They had so much fun together on that small stage! You would think putting that many guitars and that many people on such a tiny stage could make it difficult to perform, but no. Revolver was the perfect venue for this band. Small, intimate and totally off the rails.
They played all the best songs, in the best possible way. “IImapallo” , “Tuhatvuotinen hararetki” and “Turbo-Mondeo” were just some of the bangers that made me go totally bonkers. I would describe the whole set as euphoric, the top of happiness. The band and the audience melted together, in a way. Or at least I melted together with the band and the music. I really don’t care or know what the rest of the crowd felt about the gig. Honestly I did not pay attention to anyone else! But I think it’s safe to say that everyone had fun.
I actually don’t have anything bad to say about this gig. The sound was amazing. You could hear every riff and almost all the vocals the whole time, despite all the gear and noise coming from the amps. Great sound engineer!
This was my first time experiencing Teksti-TV 666 live, but it will not be the last. I implore you to go see this band if you have the chance. Everyone should see them. You’re not going to regret it, I promise.
Kiitos, guys. You made this night one to remember. Please come back soon!
