    nice bass player. the rest of the band/dancers/lead singer looked pretty creepy, but i dug the bassist.

    Well it was nice of the singer to take time out of what I can only guess is a burgeoning porn career to record that.

    You notice that the bass player and guitarist don't look up at all. With that view who can blame them. :rollno:

    When I saw the backup dancers the first time I literally sprayed the sip of beer I had just taken onto my monitor.

    I'm secretly hoping that that bass player is on TB and finds this thread. Come on. I know there's some Finnish bass players on here!
  12. I doubt that if he's in TB, he's going to show up, it would be the end of his reputation.

    This kind of videos make me feel ashamed for being a Finn... :bag: Luckily, you don't really see something like that anymore on the Finnish national TV. That was 28 years ago.

    OK bass playing though.
  15. Dig those funky moves.

    I agree. Seems he had a weird octave playing technique or was just new to it. I thought it was good playing but a bit over the top but hey, it was 28 years ago, right? Disco should be just a simple groove.
  17. The whole time the bassist is like, "what am I doing here?"

    According to some posts on You Tube, the bass player is Pekka Pohjola. He is listed in Wikipedia as “Finnish multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer. Best known as a bass player, Pohjola is also a classically trained pianist and violinist.”


    In the ‘70s he played with the Finnish progressive rock band Wigwam.
