My ex GF loved this song when it came out. It's about how girls need a "gentle stallion" ("hellä ori"), not just a "fuck bunny":

The Germaican label was actually really good in the early 00s.

This video was shot at the best reggae summer club there used to be in Helsinki. Sadly, the place burned down just a few weeks ago:

There was also a lot of skapunk made in Norway and Sweden in the early 80s, would that count?

Alania were almost like an early incarnation of Röyksopp as it featured both future Röyksopp members:

"Materialtretthet" by The Aller Værste - an early 80s ska punk band - is frequently voted among the best Norwegian albums ever.

A more commercial, pop oriented and catchy take on the ska thing from The Monroes, who hit #1 in the Norwgian singles lists with the very Madness-influenced "Sunday People" in 1983:

seven years pass...

As much as I like Seeed, I kinda wish Peter Fox had followed the line and made more solo records, Stadtaffe is so great and the live show looks like a ton of fun.
