"We as the band are passionate and energetic musicians. We have minimised the amount of self-criticism. Fear of death, total impatience and an unconcerned attitude to weary notions of good and bad is what's making us exceed speed limits.

Though it must be said that after turning forty I've started to resemble a sloth more and more." - Jussi Lehtisalo
