How and why did Outo Valo start?
Janne: Our band that time had just dried out and I was really frustrated and wanted to do something different. Something little bit moodier punk stuff. So our drummer and I asked Vili to try something with us. It just worked out really well right from start.
Janne: Some songs come together quite easily, but others you have to give some time. If it's meant to happen you should not be in haste to finish it and fuck up your good melody that you've had years in your head. Hahhah! You are little bit jealous about it and don't want to give it away too easily, but too much unfinished business in your head is no good either.
Vili: Sometimes when we try a new song I'm really scared to even open my mouth at the practice since the lyrics are deeply personal, so I end up just mumbling something for awhile... But when the song is finished (now i'm talking about the ones i've had in my head for years), I feel relieved, 'cause I don't feel frustrated anymore about what to do with it.... Janne always brings something new to it with his guitar, so it feels NEW for me also, which makes it really sound finished. In this band, I don't have to think all through by myself, so it's really enjoyable as other members make my old ideas sound fresh.
