Waltari "Smalltalk Zwischen Tür Und Angel: 08.07.2005 Live In Fulda"
Der Gig von WALTARI hat mir so gut gefallen, daß ich mich spontan dazu entschließe, auch mit den sympathischen Finnen ein Interview zu machen. Doch Eile ist geboten: laut im Aufenthaltsraum ausgehängter Running-Order sollen IN EXTREMO schon in einer halben Stunde ihren Set beginnen. Ich erwische Kärtsy gerade noch hinter der Bühne und wir verabreden uns für 20.15 Uhr. Dr. Pymonte, Yellow Pfeiffer und Flex der Biegsame bringen derweil im Raum nebenan die Dudelsäcke auf Betriebstemperatur, daher weichen wir auf den benachbarten Flur zwischen Karteikästen und Aktenschränken aus. Unter der Woche spitzen hier die Beamten der Stadtverwaltung ihre Bleistifte. Schnell noch zwei neue Pullen Flens geholt, dann geht's los...

Waltari - Some Brief Notes On Blood Sample

Hi Kärtsy, first of all congratulations to the fantastic show, but please tell us what's going on in WALTARI at the moment?

Yeah, the last album came out a year ago. It is called "Rare Species", and we are just releasing something new in Finland, it's an DVD called "Rare Species Alive". It was a big success in Finland and we are releasing it later in Germany. The whole spring 2005 we've been recording stuff for our next album, which is going to be released late this year, it's called "Blood Sample".

Do you plan to make a Germany tour this year?

We are planning to visit Germany in november.

Do you think that the gig this evening was a success for you, do you like to play on such Open-Airs?

Okay, I think it's not a real Open-Air, it's more an IN EXTREMO show with WALTARI as support act. You know what it generally means to be support act, it's always the problem that most of the fans have come to see the headliner, but compared to this I think that people really enjoyed our gig this evening. I saw a lot of smiling faces in the audience and we are satisfied with the reactions of the fans in Fulda.



What has changed in the metal scene if you compare the situation when you started to the situation of today?

I think it's much more better, I won't say musically but business is more professional after Finland has joined the EU. The possibility of whole trade between Finland and Germany has developed many chances for our musicians. Everything has changed for a better way meanwhile we have been a part of the scene for all the years, you know.

What was the most successful record you did in your career?

I don't know exactly, our career was very plain, very balanced, we don't have any big peaks. Our success is that we have been able to continue our career for more than ten years on a good level, you know. When we started in the early 90's we did a lot of small club shows. We never intended to be a mainstream act, we always wanted to be alternative, that's the story of WALTARI and we are happy that we still have the chance to play for the fans. People enjoy our shows, they don't need a calculated rock music product. We are not a product, we are honest musicians who try to express their emotions and feelings.

Please name us some bands you like to listen to at the moment?

Yeah, certainly NINE INCH NAILS, KORN, THE PRODIGY of course, DESTINY'S CHILD, LINKIN' PARK. On the other hand I like older stuff like PINK FLOYD and old progressive music as well. And I like EMINEM and rap music as well.



Do you think that it's an advantage for newcomer bands that they can use the world wide web for promoting their songs and stuff, because in the older days bands didn't have this possibility?

I think so, anyway, if you are a new band and you want to spread your music to the fans worldwide it's a very good thing, you know. I can't understand that acts like MADONNA or METALLICA get angry about internet piratism because it eats their money, which they on the other hand don't need so much any more but sure the record label needs the money and things have to keep on rolling of course. But for the new bands I think it's very good, for example WALTARI has never got any official release in the USA, but from the internet and our website we have realized that there are a lot of semi-official WALTARI-compilations circulating in the states, sometimes very strange samplers, self-made by fans, but I think it's not bad, because it's important that people in the USA have the chance to hear about us. Our mission is to show people that you can earn money and be a professional musician in another way than to be marketed from major labels with five million dollars, you know. We want to show that bands also can work in a special kind of underground level and still live the spirit of Rock'n'Roll, ha ha.

Thanks for the interview. Do you want to say anything to the fans?

There is one basic thing I want to say: it's important to show people that you can make rock music in a situation of full freedom, without any limits and some assholes who try to tell you what you must do in their opinion. I think Rock'n'Roll is freedom and rock music, gothic, hardrock and any other kind of music has to be free and unlimited.

Soweit also das Kurz-Interview mit Kärtsy, der sich ebenfalls als sehr netter Gesprächspartner entpuppte. Draußen schallt schon das IN EXTREMO-Intro "Das kann doch einen Seemann nicht erschüttern" durch den Schoßhof, also ab durch die Mitte.
