Dear Mrs. Platypus,
I raise my hat for your excellent choice of acts. Stockholm....it will be very cold, it will be very dark, it will be very expensive....oh, what the hell...it will be very much fun...so count me in!...Why, I may even give my velvet black cape an outing, as I pace the medieval alleyways, and cobbled streets of Gamla Stan looking for merriment, and hostelries with open fires and Scandic beauties serving special concoctions to those travellers foolish or brave enough to submit to the local brews....I am now palpitating with excitement, and I await your earliest confirmations, so that appropriate travel arrangements can be made....
Best wishes and good luck!
Yours truly,
The Love Zombie
p.s. Please send my regards to Leg Spinner, and remind him that he is overdue a post on the forum.

Hari and Aino are pretty good as well, I saw them live in the same place where SW played in Turku just a few weeks after that. I hope you decide to come over to this side of Gulf of Bothnia again!

Yes. Already the promo posters within the SW gigs are so beautiful and fun, the band should not skip this year either within the series of Finland concerts. Last years poster sadly wasn't commercially available at Dynamo Club, and this years design once again looks quite attractive. Who is designing these anyway? The club managements or the band itself? In addition the Club Platypus title sounds funny in a positive way, like already pointed out here. Maybe that is something, which is not always so obvious there within the indie scene for the outsiders (like maybe the potential French audiences), that there might be something funny and hilarious available within the good catchy music and the intellectual lyrics and style.

Just some thoughts after a long break here. ^_^

Hmm, well, we hadn't been planning to make this into a mini-tour (including Turku and Gothenburg), just because we won't have a new album out by then.

Stockholm is a special case, as I don't really consider the last gig at Landet to have been that well done- it was virtually not publicised at all, outside of Facebook. We have a lot of fans in Stockholm (I can tell, from the site visits), so that gig was a bit annoying.

Also...there are other considerations...

1) Normally, any trip which includes both Stockholm and Turku means having to leave a day between, for the ferry. Last time, we did fly from Turku to Gothenburg, but it was quite expensive. It's possible, though, as Les Yper Sound usually do Fridays...

2) The best way now for a band to fly to Finland is with EasyJet to Helsinki. There are no musical instrument charges (as with Ryanair). But, the flights are late, arriving at 20:00, so we'd need to go the day before, travel to Turku and find accomodation there.

3) If we were to do Turku, it'd be nice to also to play Gothenburg...but that'd mean playing Thursday and a lot of flying, or Monday and a day off.

4) I may fly to Stockholm the day before for press, but I don't know yet- it may not be necessary at that late stage.

Hmm, I'll think about it...

Oh, I didn't draw it myself (well, I did draw the platypus), but nicked it- it's a b&w line drawing by, er, "Naiad & Walter Einsel", which I coloured in with crayons and fruit juice.
