Jussi Hakulinen


Jussi Hakulinen came from the same town as I did: Pori, from the West Coast of Finland, with appr. 77,000 population. He had a popular glam-schlager band called Yö/Night, but he quit the band for reasons I don't know. Maybe because of his bad hair?

A saxist friend of mine played later in Hakulinen's band and I seem to remember that they made a record that was never or very poorly released. This was in the early nineties. I don't really know what Hakulinen is up to now. (The album on the left was called The Pink Hotel.)

But, really, that hair... Elina bought recently a new issue of InStyle and in there someone says that the seventies was a fashion wreck. What about the eighties, then?

Fanaattisena Jussi Hakulis-fanina melkein voisin vetää herneet nenään tästä jutusta, mutta en viitsi vaivautua. Jos tän pointti oli arvostella Jussin kampausta 80-luvulta, niin why bother?

FYI: Jussi on Suomi-rockin parhaita biisintekijöitä, ja jos kiinnostaa tietää, niin mies tekee edelleenkin Yö-yhtyeelle biisejä, keikkailee silloin tällöin Yön kanssa ja välillä tekee myös duokeikkoja porilaisen Aki Peltosen kanssa. Lisäksi hän toimii musiikinopettajana Porissa.
