Beaner Bio:

Happened so far:

1996: Three friends facinated about all kinds of rockmusic and it's sideproducts decide to form a band, because it simply feels like the right thing to do. The band gets named as Downmind, then changed later to Robin, and finally converted to what it is today; Beaner. The inventor of the name denies all accusations of any positive or negative meaning withing the name, quote; " It just was a cool word, for ***** sake!". It really even isn't, bu it stuck, so it stayed. At this time, the current bassartist Juki played guitar and sang, drummer Jukka played bass, and only Ville had found his calling with his guitar.

1998: After several morally legendary straightforward punkrocksongs, the band experienced a kick forward as the lead guitarist Jp joined the band. Alongside him emerged ambitious leads, half-solos, solos and harmonies in a way never seen before. After joining, Jp has been highly resposible for the bands enhanced performance, as well as many newlyborn favourite songs... and all their complicites...

2002: The singer for some time Aapo Juusti got called to serve in the army, and the replacement was found from Helsinki University, in the form of Juki's bud, Samu. The windy singer's post got filled, and by suprise, the still living classic lineup of the band was formed. Easy is not quite the word to describe what happened then, as "The 303 Demo" from the same year proves... made in haste and absolutely with no knowledge what so ever; it serves best as frisbee.

2003: As an instant remedy to the failure, a 16-song live cd was recorded during the insanely busy spring tour. And admittedly it is of a ridiculous quality, but also strangely sincere and hilarious with it's strange intros, screwups and odd energy.

2004: By the next spring, it was time to put out "The Mansion Days", recorded at a mansion-like house of a friend of ours, Joonas Naskali (technoartist Retro Star). The impressive covers made by the bands silent member Samuli Landen got it attention maybe more than it deserved, and as the musical outcome was still a bit light and unfinished, the decision to record more soon got made faster then one can say studio. By late autumn, "Plan B" was ready and out, sounding better than ever and looking better than ever, once again thanks to Samuli. The improved mixing and sound is all thanks to Janne "The Boss" Joutsenniemi of SubUrban Tribe, who recorded us at The MD Studio in Munkkiniemi. He truly is a professional in the most positive sense of the word.


2005:
Some time after the Plan B had taken it's turn to circle the world, new songs formed and the idea of doing the whole thing again became very concrete. So, we phoned the studio again and set up a date with the sasme man in the same place, and headed back to the MD Studios to record "Hells Triangle", a cd with much more diverse songs and drive than before, named after the legendary AC/DC song "Hells Bells", but toned down to our caliber, because Hey! We're really no AC/DC... ;)

Song Description
Hells Triangle - Song number (1).

As the starting song, Bends works like a charm (well, on our point of view it does...) with it's glue-like memorable lead guitars, and steadily progressing onward pace.

Finally is H.T's solution to a little bit more powerpopish approach on life, although it's full and warm guitarwalls tell a bit of a different story.

Hells Triangle - Song number (3).

1000times is maybe the most rocking, most uncontrolled part of H.T, with some raspy vocals, riffs filled with energy and almost majestic chorus.
