SO~NYH on Witch Mountain, July 2008

In July 2008 NYH was ordered to a gig in the mighty county of Jaala, where a seasonal tribal fest was to be take place.

The band lived in an illusion that it will be accompanying local festival activities, such as finger wrestling, moonshine brewing or peasant carding, but it appeared that it was question of a summer concert, announced county wide even by the local radio station, where NYH was the principal and the only performer.

The experienced members of NYH did not hesitate too long, but spitted into their horns and started the concert. The occasion was of a very high level, ca. 45.8 m above the lake surface. Yet, it was challenged by ca. 1.7 million mosquitoes, midges and bugs send by the Southwest air fleet, and finalised by a mild and tender (+14 centigrade) shower, which watered not only the eyes of the audience. The success of the occasion is documented in the critics of the local newspaper (» pdf 500 kB, in Finnish only).
