Maria: The Rasmus one of the most world wide succesful Finnish bands. Welcome, Lauri Ylönen!
Lauri: (to the guy) Good horse!
M: Oh my lord!
L: We were in Nashville, making the album, and a couple of cowboys showed me some moves!
M: Oh yeah, that what you did too.. You started pretty good screamings, there!
L: Ye-eah! This one woman
just asked that "Can older women
M: And you allowed.
L: .. to scream and show the underpants.
M: Yeah. Hey, today you and your band have played an good, old acoustic depatment store-gig in the centre of Helsinki. How did it feel like to perform to the Finnish fans again since a long time ago?
L: It really was a fantastic ultimate rock'n'roll experience to play in the perfume
department of Stockman! I've always wanted to do that. Yeah, "Chanel No. 5" smells there. Actually, many of these people here where there too.
M: How can you remember that?
L: Well, I see them pretty often, they're everywhere.
M: Oh really! Does it feel good to see familiar faces?
L: Yeah, it really is respected, they take care.
M: You hang along! There vere also Japanese fans who had funny comments?
L: Yeah. There was this Japanese girl who said she were there only to whatch the show. I'm not sure if I believe that, but.. Then Pauli asked her that "Well, was the concert good then, after all your effort?". She was like "Well, the concert was better than your new album!"
M: okay, what can you answer to that. Like "THANK YOU." And this your new album is the most expensive album of your bog, international record label Playground, isn't it? And then you play a little show in the cosmetics department and that's better.. noo. But tell us, what kind of pressure it creates when you do the most expensive album in the history?
L: Ööö... a good question.
M: I mean the most expensive album in the labels history.
L: (can't understant what he says).. probably get's higher which means that you have to sell X copies to album to get the money back, and actually I don't know how many it is, but.. Of course, when we have this American mega star- producer here to help us, it probably costed quite a lot of money. Hopefully it helps..
M: He has payed so he could produce this album.
L: Yeah!! *laughs* He was very helpful. He kind of opened our eyes to who we are, again. And kind of picked out the heart from Rasmus.
M: Today we're talking about who you are quite a lot. But who I am.. (okay, I have to say, her talking honestly didn't make any sense there o__O so let's move on!) This autumn you are going to a tour with Von Hertzen Brothers and Mariko. We haven't seen you that much on Finnish stages, how does it feel like to go touring in Finland again?
L: Feels really nice, we have 8 or 9 gigs and we kinda want to present that Rasmus which has been touring in Europe..
M: The universal Rasmus.
L: You could say that! We are playing in a little bit bigger halls now and are all kinds of video walls, synchronized to the music and stuff, some extra!
M: Like Jonne (the other guest), you've listened all of your of material before you started planning the album. Why?
L: Yeah, it was time for some self studying and try find the heart of Rasmus, because it felt like we were a little bit lost and repeated ourselves, musically. And we were stuck in that certain image too much. Then we listened the old songs with a tear in the corner of an eye; "Oh man, it was so cool back then, wish we could get that feeling back..". Then we decided to take the feeling back systematically. It was a good move. Physically too; hair back to blond and.. It was kind of a step backwards.
M: Where are the feathers!
L: Hmm.. I gave them to Lauri. *smiling*
M: Oh yeah, good. The right answer. You probably think about yourself, too. What kind of Lauri Ylönen did you find, except a blond one? Did you find the internal blond?
L: Yeaah. *grinning* I did. Some kind of lighter attitude to life.
M: Good. When have you been the most satisfied with yourself during the career of Rasmus?
L: ....öhmm..probably when I've managed to do a good melody. Or when someone has named his/her son Rasmus. I think it's so cute!
M: Have many done that?
L: Quite many, yeah.
M: That's so nice.
L: "I was watching you in Malmitalo 14 years ago. May I introduce my son, Rasmus."
M: Ooooooh, that is SO nice! Well, now we can naturally move to that you are a dad today, you have a little son. Whose name is not Rasmus. How is it like to be a dad?
L: Wonderful. It is really nice. I'm waiting that this show is over and I can go home! *grinning* He is probably sleeping, though..
M: What are you doing, what was this? *makes the move whit her hands imitating Lauri*
L: It was a move!
M: Was it like, you take the baby like this and then you shake it?
L: Noooh! *laughing* They have told me not to do that! *grinning* Well.. it is really fun. It gives me a lot of happines in my life.
M: Which are the bonding moments with the child. He is old enough so he isn't stuck in his mother's boob all the time, right? So the father can contavt with him too.
L: Sometimes he tries to reach my boob too, it's kinda.. *laughing* But the mornings are the best. But that's all about that subject.
M: Noo, I wan't to ask if you ever sing to him! Like "F-F-F-Falling...."
L: Yesterday I did sing one theme from the "Three Colors" -movie, it was about blue.
M: Oh man, I hate that movie.
L: It's the best movie soundtrack in the world!
M: OOh, I haven't thought about the soundtrack, I've only thought about the movie.. But hey, what things would you like to teach to your son about life?
L: Maybe independent initiative, and broad-minded thinking.
M: What is independent initiative?
L: It's that when something stays stuck, try something else.
M: I've met many young men who say they never want children, because this world is so full of _. What would you say to them?
L: They are wrong. *smiling* This is quite a good place, even though terrible things happen here.
M: Have you notice that you have reacted in some special way to what happened in Kauhajoki, because you are a dad?
L: I don't know, but I kind of started to think about my own younger days and those times when I kinda felt like an outsider. Then I encouraged to go to the Oranssi-club, the youth center, still there. There I found some soul-mates and some happines in my life and new hobbies. Our band started in Oranssi. There were nice, reliable leaders and I got to talk about thing we didn't talk home..
Jonna: Little applause to the youth center!
L: That's a good point, because youth centers are getting closed, one after the other, which is really sad.
M: I'm not even a young person anymore and I'm sad because of the youth center next to my place, they're closing. I think it's just awful.
Jonna: They haven't closed yet?
M: No, we can still do a lot! Let's talk more about this stuff soon. We met the head of the leader of the youth crisis center Olavi Sydänmaanlakka today afternoon who was organizing the concert where Jonna performed tonight. Now we are going to hear his thought's about why there has been a young man behind these violent things..
In the end:
L: I feel like that discipline home tells about that love and caring. That was what he was talking about, if I understood it right. And maybe the love doesn't show - even if it is there - in many homes. Maybe it would be justifiable to show it.
