Artist bio

51koodia MySpace

During 2002 in Finland, a Joensuu-based Britpop group called Pool had come to a pivotal point in its career. There were no gigs and the overall motivation was low. One day, the singer Hannu Sallinen brought with him to the rehearsals a bunch of songs for which he had accidentally written lyrics in Finnish. The band started to work on them, one thing lead to another, and before the end of the year, the band had signed a record contract with a multinational record company.

After some changes in their line-up, the band was renamed as 51koodia. So far, they have released three albums: Nimetty in the beginning of 2004, Rautaiset linnut in August 2005 and Mustat sydämet in february 2008. On Rautaiset linnut, 51koodia stretches the extremes of its expression further than ever before, finding their spiritual home both in heavy pieces and in slow, fragile, clean guitar-dominated songs.

In the spring 2006 band's bassist Asko made his decision to leave 51koodia for he didn't have enough time and energy for both his daily work at Joensuu's Popmusicians association and the band. Read more
The band found themselves a new bassist, Petri Varis who has played earlier in Maryland and Ville Härkönen & Velvet.
