Timo Kaukolampi is one of Finland’s most prolific musicians. Rooted in the do-it-yourself garage rock scene, starting bands like Larry and the Lefthanded and Op:l Bastards, he eventually formed the highly acclaimed K-X-P, dove into movie scoring and lashed out a solo album. Sheer willpower. No formal training. In order to get this interview done, we had to keep up with him as he roamed the outskirts of Helsinki, on foot, buying and selling gear. We’re also honored to premiere a brand new live video of Timo’s latest solo work “Three Legged Giant Centipede” created in collaboration with Analog Video Vector Synthesist Derek Holzer.

Excellent - go Timo!

The Kaukolampi solo LP was a favourite of last year.


that eastern european drum pack sounds interesting…


It’s so nice to see a fellow finn being interviewed, and of course Timo is an excelent choice for it.

He seems such a cool and laid-back dude too. I once asked around about peoples experiences with Analog Heat in this finnish FB group for people who are into synths and he replied to me, telling that anecdote how it made the 606 sound amazing.
