WJWTRTW / Looking for Keith (1:37)

Composition: Veijalainen & Oikarinen
Lyrics: Ylilauri

Track details:
Oikku: electric & acoustic guitars, drums, keyboards
Ville: fretted bass


  • Maybe the weirdest track of the album, short but dense.
  • A video of this potential top-ten hit was premiered at OMVF in 2000.
  • Features bottleneck slide guitar parts that are… well… unorthodox??
  • Ville came up with the main riff and Marko composed the song around it.
  • The ‘style’ of Marko’s drum arrangement resembles a certain Frank Zappa composition that we used to play.
  • The riff was often used as the basis for group improvisations on live gigs.
  • Some day we may release a version with vocals, hopefully introducing Matti’s Tom Waits-alter ego…
  • Matti came up with the title.
