07.01.2005 You can't stop the music »
On new year's eve Insight had a gig with Mesmer at Neliapila in Mäntsälä. Mesmer played their set and Insight was ready to rumble. But then around 01:30 the police came by for a visit. There were some fights and the police had to close Neliapila down.
But all is not lost: We decided to move the gear to our nearby rehearsal cave and invited all the nice folks there. And that was where the party started! We ended up playing our show in a very familiar environment... There was free beer, beautiful girls and live music! What more can we ask for?!?!?!
Insight would like to thank every one who came there. It was a succesfull night after all.

    (C) Free Your Mind5.5.2004
    Yleisradion Free your mindin sivuilta löytyy Insight videohaastattelu sekä Hide-biisin livevideo Ääni ja Vimma karsinnoista. Perjantaina 19.3.2004 Ruoholahden nuorisotalolla nauhoitettujen videoiden katseluun tarvitset ilmaiseksi saatavilla olevan Real Playerin.

    The Insight homepage can now be accessed via new address: insightmusic.tk. It's a lot easier to remember than those old ones.

    Insight-duo kotiutui juuri Samettiklubilta Semifinalista. Janne ja Jani heittivät pari tuoreempaa piisiä ja yhden vanhemman kipaleen. Setti meni kutakuinkin näin: 1. Sound Sleeper 2. Another Day 3. For My Heart.

    Janne ja Jani Insightista ovat vieraana Radio Iistsaidin taajuuksilla (105,5 MHz) keskiviikkona 21.4.2004 kello 18:30 alkaen. Pojat soittavat pari biisiä ja juttelevat vähän kuulumisia. Radio kuuluu n. 40-60 kilometrin säteellä Helsingistä.

    Ääni ja Vimma semifinaalit lähetetään suorana myös netissä. Insightin vuoro on perjantaina klo 19.20-19.35. Jos et pääse paikan päälle tai et halua tulla, niin lähetystä voi seurata kahdesta paikasta. Osoitteista www.freeyourmind.fi ja www.globalstage.tv.

    Kävimme perjantaina 19.3. soittamassa pari biisiä Ääni & Vimma -karsinnoissa Ruoholahdessa. Basson varteen saimme houkuteltua Miki Brunoun, joka on kaikille tuttu Mesmeristä. Seuraavan kerran asian tiimoilta soitamme Gloriassa perjantaina 23.4. ja tarkka kellonaika on 19.20-19.35.
    Käymme kuitenkin pikavisiitillä Gloriassa jo tiistaina 13.4. Homman nimi on Akustinen baari ja siellä on esiintymässä Kari Peitsamo, Kati Pellinen sekä läjä tuntemattomampia suuruuksia.
    Seuraava keikka onkin sitten lauantaina 22.5. Turkoosissa Helsingissä. Insight, Terijoki Syndrome ja Mesmer. Liput maksavat noin 3 euroa. Tervetuloa!

    Olimme tuossa hiljattain mukana letsmakesomenoise.comin Metelimittarissa.
    Kalenterin näyttämä vuosikin vaihtui ja laskuri on nyt pyörähtänyt yli kolme tuhatta kertaa.

    Vuoden 2004 ensimmäinen keikka on ystävänpäivänä 14. helmikuuta Mäntsälän Monitoimitalolla Jimi Pääkallon luotsaaman Technicolourin lämppärinä. Odotettavissa on täsmähittejä aina Firefliesista Restrained Rageen :-)

    Stella Star Clubin sivuilla voit äänestää viime vuoden parasta bändiä, joka esiintyi siellä. Pienenä vinkkinä annettakoon, että Insight kävi keikalla kyseisessä juottolassa jopa kahdesti...

    Parisuhderock tuplatreffit Factoryssä. Keskelle viikkoa ajoittuva mini-festari vietetään Helsingin Hakaniemen Factoryssä, kun uutta EP:tään viimeistelevä Insight heittää keikat sekä keskiviikkona että torstaina Pitkän sillan kupeessa.
    Paikalle kannattaa tulla molempina päivinä, sillä soittamassa on myös muita bändejä ja jotain insight-spesiaalia on luvassa kummallekin keikalle... Keskiviikkona tukenamme on mainio poppaava Soft Body Vinyl Head ja torstaina hypnoottisen goottipopin nouseva voima Mesmer (entinen Thee Fleshless).

    Congratulations! We celebrated the birthday of our dear counter on the first day of November. During the last year this page has been visited over 2200 times. That means over six (6) hits per day! Thank You.
    And happy birthday to our hard working counter once more. We wish many years of cooperation and a bright future!

    Kauan odotettuja keikkapäivämääriä on nyt vihdoin saatu pari. Tsekkaa päivät shows-osastolta. Tervetuloa katsomaan sankoin joukoin.

    Finally! We have some gigs coming up in the near future. Check out the dates from the shows section. See You!

    Käväisimme viikonloppuna Pohjalla nauhoittamassa lauluja ja kitaroita tulevalle levylle eli loppusuoralla ollaan pikkuhiljaa. Tästä reissusta voi käydä lukemassa raportin täältä.


    We highly recommend to set Your course to Mesmer.


    A new mp3 song "Elsewhere" is available in the releases & mp3 section.


    Muutamat fotot ovat nyt esillä Livestockin sivuilla, että sinne vain katselemaan! Iso kiitos kuvista Mikkolle ja Mikalle!

    Kiitos myös kaikille Stellaan 15.8. vaivautuneille. Keikka tuli aivan yllätyksenä samana päivänä ja oli hauska nähdä niin monien ihmisten vaivautuneen paikalle lyhyellä varoitusajalla. Ainakin soittajilla riitti riemua kahden bändin ja yhden performanssi-pläjäyksen verran, kiitos Teille!


    Kiitos kaikille Livestockista, kesän ja koko vuoden kohokohdasta!!! Tämän vuoden festari löi laudalta edelliset Livestock-tapahtumat niin bändien laadussa kuin kävijöiden ja tyhjien pullojenkin määrässä. Insight soitti festivaalin "pääesiintyjänä" vähän puolenyön jälkeen ja meininki oli kirjaimellisesti navetan katossa! KIITTI JENGI!!!
    P.S. Valokuvia Livestockista on tulossa lähiaikoina.

    Uusimmassa Curly -lehdessä on juttu Insightista. Curly on ilmaisjakelulehti ja sitä pitäisi löytyä ainakin kirjastoista, nuorisotaloilta ja jostain kaupoista myös.


    The latest Curly magazine has an article about Insight.


    Insight ikuistaa uusia biisejä tällä hetkellä pitkän linjan yhteistyökumppaninsa, ykkösmies Pekka Koskenkannon kanssa. Uuden levyn olisi tarkoitus tulla ulos ennen kesää. Käy täällä katselemassa miten tilanne edistyy, ilmoitamme tuloksista heti, kun jotain kerrottavaa ilmaantuu.


    The guys of Insight are back in business and recording new songs again with the number 1 man, Pekka Koskenkanto. The new EP should come out before summer so come back here and check out the situation!

    We have a new counter on the "mainpage" to count how many visitors are lurking around here. The counter was activated on the first day of November in the year 2002.

    On Monday 23rd of September the smash hit "Restrained Rage" was played in Radiomafia's Upteekki's demo of the week competition. Results came on Thursday and Insight was the last one of three bands. The best band won but The Upteekkarit had something nice to say about Insight: "Särmikästä kitarapoppia tyylikkäin maustein. Rehellisen kuuloista tulkintaa ja kiitettävästi koukkuja."

    Our second CD EP has been reviewed and can be read at www.rockmusica.net. Theres lots of reviews plus other music related things on the site. Check it out!

    There are some more songs available in the releases & mp3 section. So what are You waiting for? Christmas?!?!? Go download them!

    "Glamorama" is featured on the ooooo mailing list's compilation CD OOOOOps-cokish. The disc features tracks from MurhaMurhaItsemurha, O Samuli A, U.S.O., Aïr, Grey Park and many many more... OOOOOps-cokish is numbered and limited edition of 100 copies.

    The hit single "Restrained Rage" is now available in mp3 format. Go ahead and download it, it's totally free! Insight has also made it's radio debute with this same song recently.

    The brand new insight release is out now!!! The acclaimed second release of Insight is ready and waiting for You to enjoy it. Five killer smash hits ranging from rock-murder tracks to beautiful ballads a la Insight aimed straight to Your hearts. It's fresh. It's cool. It's unfresh. It's meininki. Here is the menu: "Restrained Rage", "Until", "15 Minutes of Love", "Elsewhere" and "Glamorama".

    The release of the forthcoming insight EP has delayed again. But it's really close right now, because only final mastering and some layout needs to be done. Major problems have occured when the band has tried to make contact with the militant-artist sailor-boy A. Laakso, because no phone lines or mobile networks are working on Antti's small secret island. Insight hopes that they will hear something of the lovable fisherman-communist soon, or no artwork will be seen for ages...

    The artwork for the forthcoming EP is going to be done by the infamous artist Antti Laakso. He is now spending he's days on a small island in Eastern-Finland, observing the sea and getting inspiration from simple fisherman's life. Only a few people live on that small island and it is a marvellous place for Antti to gather strenght for he's future projects, including the artwork of the new Insight EP!

    Insight will perform a very special gig on tuesday 29.01.2002 at the legendary Hotelli Hanhi in Lapinjärvi. The two Simos (Janne & Jani) will return to Lappträsk after they had both spent a month there in autumn 2001. The two other Insight dudes are not coming along this time, only the sounds of Janne's campfire guitar and Jani's sore throat will be heard this time. A merry night is guaranteed with some more Simo bands and lots of drunken Simos!

    The confirmed tracks on the forthcoming release are: 15 Minutes of Love, Restrained Rage and Elsewhere and one yet untitled song. The InsightBoyz are satisfied with the recordings so far: "Everything is going to be much better on this one. The sound, the songs, the production, the whole package!" Although one thing remains the same: "We can't seem to get rid of crap-lyrics..." But fans don't agree with that comment. Get the new CD soon, when it hits the streets, and decide yourself!!!

    The boys of Insight are working hard nowdays in the studio, trying to get their hit potential heart-rock tracks recorded. Crazy days and endless nights are spent in a tiny studio (built in an old water closet) where blood, sweat and tears flow 24 hours in a day. As a result, a stunning four-track EP is to be released in the near future. And You will be the first one to know!

    After Insight's massive show at the
    Premiere Nights restaurant last November, it was expected that Insight would break their way into the semifinals of The Premiere Nights Band Competition. Now the date has been confirmed, and Tuesday the 19th of March Premiere Nights is going to be under total destruction á la Insight. This is something You do not want to miss...

    The well-known mixer, recorder, sound-engineer and producer Pekka Koskenkanto is a very busy man today with his countless projects, but he has shown green light to work for the new recording of Insight! The band and Pekka start working on a new EP next January (2002). Pekka has been working before with artists such as The Fleshless, Musta Perhonen and the guitar virtuose Kalle Pekkala.
