    Kometa IS NOT playing at Lepakkomies this thursday. We were never supposed to. We couldn’t do it even if we wanted to because we’re abroad. For some reason our name is mentioned in some ads. But you can go there anyway to see SirCusCus. Is this clear now?

  • 03.03.2011

    Yes. Only couple of days until one can see us live in Helsinki. We played at Tampere with SUPO couple of weeks ago and now again at bar Loose. Be there in time, SUPO will start at 22, don’t miss it, they’re good. Kometa will enter stage at 23. Let the future begin!

    We’ve been practising some new songs we gonna play tonight at Bar Cafe Luna in Vantaa. A place we’ve never been to before. And actually a city we’ve never played in before. Go Vantaa go. Is it really a rock’n’roll city? Is it really a city at all or just a suburb of Helsinki? Olavi used to spend summer holidays there when he was a kid, but he was actually in Mellunmäki which is in Helsinki but right next to Vantaa.

  • 01.01.2010

    It’s a new year. We’ve put some new (old) songs to our MySpace site. There’s some stuff from sold-out/out-of-print “Like a Light Bulb” plus also some new songs from “A Strange Revelation”. So check it out if you don’t own the records. We’ll also play next saturday at Wäiski in Helsinki. There’s a whole bunch of cool strange bands so the 2-day festival is worth visiting, I guess. See you there.

  • 12.12.2009

    Last friday we head to Turku to play some music with the fellows of Sydän, Sydän and Pahat Agentit. I have to say it was great. Quite a lot of people showed up and seemed to enjoy themselves. And so did we. Then on saturday we head to Helsinki to play with Pahat Agentit again. The place was Lepakkomies. During the sound check T.T noticed that he’d left his cymbals in Turku but Ema borrowed his to this drum god of Kometa. Maybe it would’ve been better without the cymbals because Olavi’s and Jari’s ears rang quite a bit afterwards. Should they use ear plugs? Maybe, I don’t know.

    Hello Again!

  • 10.10.2009

    Anyone up for a good Kometa show tonight? Well then you should consider taking a trip to Lahti. We’ll be there at Torvi doing our stuff. Everyone knows Torvi, don’t you? Well then see You there. Showtime around midnight I guess…

  • 08.08.2009

    Thanks for everyone who came to see us at Faces festival. It was great! No more gigs this summer but as you can see, we got some gigs in Autumn. We’ll be playing two nights together with a great organ punk band Pahat Agentit, (in which 23 of the members played in legendary group HC Andersen) They don’t do gigs often, so don’t miss it! Olavi’s been working on some new material and the band is about to put the pieces together in the near future. And this can only mean one thing, a new album. But that’ll be another story…

    Kometa will play at club Liberte in Helsinki next thursday (16.7) with Kap Kap. Tickets 5e + cloak fee.

  • 06.06.2009

    The summer has arrived though it seems to be raining at the moment. On saturday we’ll be heading to Rauma and the infamous Klustermus festival. We were there last summer and it was kind of fun. We’ll play after seven pm on the main stage. The festival is FREE with a lot of interesting bands and artists and good atmosphere so it’s absolutely worth visiting. I wonder what we’re gonna play there…it’ll figure out soon, I guess. The pressing of “Like a Light Bulb” is totally sold-out now. BV2 Produktions has something like 4 copies of it left. So if you got it, keep it safe, it’s a true rarity now.

  • 04.04.2009

    It was fun at Liberte! See for yourself

  • 03.03.2009

    Kometa has been rehearsing. Olavi has got some new riffs and the boys have been checking them out. This morning at 11 o’clock the miraculous trio met at their rehearsal place located in Helsinki. Jari was early, very unusual to him, and he’d made some coffee. The group drank some and started to jam. They always jam a little in the beginning of the rehearsals. Then they tried a new song that’s been around for a while. It didn’t sound that good so they had to ignore it and Olavi seemed to get a little pissed. But soon he lightened up. Then they tried some other new tunes and a few of them are really good, some others just “quite good”. They played for 2 and half hours and left. They’ll be back tomorrow and hopefully let me out of here. -J.Smith, the manager.

    Last weekend we rocked at Pub Norris, Karjaa and Lepakkomies, Helsinki. Played some new songs plus some really old. I didn’t brake any strings and T.T. Kinnunen didn’t poke his eyes, thank god. Jari Laakkonen played couple of good bass solos in middle of songs and didn’t sing, as usual. Read more from our MySpace blog. Sorry for the bad english, My back hurts and I’m full of medication and can’t think straight. Yours -OV

    We’ve had some kind of holiday for a while and now we’re back! We’ve been writing new songs and now it looks like something’s coming up. We had some new tunes in the end of last year but actually they were pretty bad so we had to throw them in a dust bin. Now we’re making better ones, but it takes time. So be patient. We might play some new songs on our forthcoming gigs (see updates from gig-section). We’re gonna have a small tour with Molly Grows Up, they’re from Turku, and we’ll play in Turku (the old capital of Finland) and Helsinki (the capital of Finland). Record labels have this huge campaign of selling records for almost nothing in January, so go and buy some records, music is good for your soul and that way you won’t end up frizzling in hell. See you!

    It was fun to play at Nosturi last saturday. At the time we started at 22 pm, the place was surprisingly crowded and we even heard people shouting our name. We were expecting that everyone had come to see the main band, Kotiteollisuus and wouldn’t care much of our stuff. But we were wrong, I suppose. During the 40 mins we played, I managed to brake 2 guitar cables, and I lost the sound of the guitar once or twice. But what the heck, we enjoyed a lot and for us it seemed that audience enjoyed too. I saw a guy waving his fist in the back row of the balcony and shouting “yeaaaahhhh”. We also gave an interviw to some “soffa.tv” and they also shot our gig. I don’t know when it’s out but we’ll let you know if they tell us. It was really good evening to celebrate our 200th gig. Thanks to everyone involved.

    Hello! Thanks for evryone who came to Torvi last wednesday. Here’s how it went. It’s only a one-hour trip to Lahti so we began our trip at seven o’clock leaving from our rehearsal place. Jasse, our sound guy, came and off we went. Ten after eight we parked our van in front of Torvi. I drank a cup of coffee then. We did a soundcheck which usually takes something like hour. The monitoring in Torvi is not so good so I had a small problems with hearing the vocals but I got by (during the gig the I completely lost vocal monitoring a dozen of times). After soundcheck Jasse was a bit hungry so we went to eat something small. Jari ate meat balls and Jasse ate cabbage box. I drank a beer. Then we walked to Torvi and on our way we saw a 20-meter queue, unfortunately for us, it was in front of a game shop instead of Torvi, as people were waiting the doors to open to buy this new game, which name I don’t even remember. In front of the club was no queue. At 12 p.m. we started our gig. We started with “Since I was born”, after that we played “She told me so” and after that…I don’t remember, it was just endless adrenaline-filled trip of sweat, sweet music and playing. Good and rough. We played maybe for an hour. People insisted us to play more, so we played more. After one hour fifteen minutes it was over. Kometa had left the building.

    Some new gigs updated. There’s gonna be an evening with our record label mates Sydän, sydän next month in Liberte. Also a jazzy & groovy evening with our record label mates Kotiteollisuus will take place in Nosturi in November. Yesterday’s gig at Kuudes Linja was quite nice and we ended up playing one new song even though just before the gig we decided not to play any until it’s the right time, which means way ahead in the future. But what can you do when you got into the flow. Probably the right time was yesterday because to play the new piece felt very much okay and somewhere in the middle of “How to wear things” Olavi ended up inside a dusty old carpet and fell off the stage. And Anssi 8000 & Maria Stereo rocked very much. Very good. Thank you.
