“Kolmas Nainen went to the Finnish championships with a song about men in 1984”



Kolmas Nainen became a bit of a household name (among followers of Finnish music, that is) in 1984 when it took part in the Finnish Rock Championships. The group of mates from Alavusi maintained great co-ordination even under pressure from the competition. The recording is from the Yle Elävä arkisto, ‘living archives’, “Kolmas Nainen: Vanhat äijät” (‘Kolmas Nainen: old guys’) on the TV programme Rokkimestarit 84, November 21, 1984.
