TIMO RAUTIAINEN & TRIO NISKALAUKAUS
Timo Rautiainen and his band Trio Niskalaukaus (neck shot) were the main stay on Tuska stage for years before their hiatus in 2004. In fact, they were supposed to play every Tuska.
Their break (or break up) lasted for more than a decade, and you can tell it has worked wonders. The band plows ahead with the authority of an elder statesman, but with new found youthful energy. Listen to their latest ”Lauluja Suomesta” (songs from Finland) for proof.
