Now this is Rock and Roll! Laika and the Cosmonauts

I haven’t covered many instrumental bands here at The Rock and Roll Report. Actually, I haven’t covered any instrumental bands on The Rock and Roll Report but today I make up for it by featuring an amazing surf/rock and roll instrumental band from the warm, sunny climes of …..Finland. That’s right I’m talking about Finland’s own Laika and the Cosmonauts. Praised by all those who have heard them, people like Dick Dale, Al Jourgensen and Peter Buck, Laika and the Cosmonauts are still going strong after 17 years and man these guys know how to rock with the bonus that no matter what language you speak you can still enjoy them since they don’t sing! With a new album out called “Local Warming”, these guys exist simply to melt your snow. You can check out some MP3s of their stuff here. A surf band from Finland with a name like this, how can you go wrong? The simple answer: you can’t.
