How did we become Irvikuvat?

The idea of Irvikuvat was first born in the mind of a drummer called Jussi. He scoured a webpage – – for players who would like to form a band with him. The first to answer the call for musicians was Johannes "Jii" Wallin. His fingers itched to play his six-string somewhere else than home, and this new collaboration could give Jii the possibility to do that.

Soon, Jii noticed, he had actually joined a band. At the time the band consisted of a guitarist, Arto, a bassist, Marko, and Jussi, who played the drums.

Irvikuvat 2nd chapter

The second chapter in the life of Irvikuvat started when Arto decided to leave the band, and the responsibility for composing was moved on Jiis shoulders. However, there was a gaping hole after Arto’s departure, so a new guitarist, Veikko, joined the group.

At this point a new singer, or should we say growler, also took the stage. He was a burly and sexy Pastori Kuri. For a while the band tried their wings performing music with English lyrics, but soon the language was changed to Finnish. This was the point when the Irvikuvat we know started to manifest itself. Marko was later replaced by Janne "Hasbullah" Halima and instead of Veikko, Christer "Professori" Niemi joined the band. It was also time for a second vocalist, and through a coincidence and a mutual friendship Jenna "Ruoska" Turpeinen joined the ranks.

Irvikuvat New Era

The new era of Irvikuvat started when Juha-Tapio "Antonio" Anttonen replaced Jussi as the drummer. Through the rough patches and changes, Irvikuvat is now in a new era with its six members: Jii, Pastori Kuri, Halibaba, Professori, Ruoska and Antonio. Together, we are a travesty of man. We are Irvikuvat.
