The Milestones 1996 Vol. 1

Oh my GOD how time flies! It feels just like yesterday when these five rock'n roll rebels to be known as THE MILESTONES took their native home town Helsinki by force with their timeless and soulful rock'n roll, as they entered the legendary stage of the longest serving rock club in Europe, Tavastia Club on one cold Friday evening in January 1995.

I wasn't the only one who was impressed. Enter Mr. Hannu Leiden - the vocalist and songwriter of HAVANA BLACK - who had been on the verge of a major breakthrough in USA late eighties, as legendary manager Alan Niven had taken Hannu's band under his wing together with GUNS N'ROSES and GREAT WHITE.

Not one band had impressed Hannu in USA as much as these five Finnish whiskey rock'n rollers from the capital, so there and then he decided to form a record label to release an album by THE MILESTONES.

Vol. 1 saw the light of day in 1996 and boasted an opening track called "Ragged Lies", which would have made the likes of THE BLACK CROWES, AC/DC and LYNYRD SKYNYRD proud, if they had written it themselves! In this case it was five unknown, but hugely talented Finnish rockers in their twenties rocking hard and kicking ass as they were trying to keep themselves warm living next to the arctic circle and Russia - when not drinking vodka, whiskey and rum straight from the bottle.
