In this interview I talk to Heli all about music and vinyl.
Why did you decide to start a vinyl themed Instagram?
At first I thought of posting pictures of what Finland is like. The first pictures seem to be some selfies. Gradually, however, the theme became vinyl. At that time I was excited about vinyl music again and started collecting and buying them. One of my friends talked a lot about how great the sound in vinyl music is. They sound so much better than CD’s. Then I noticed how many vinyl music accounts there was.
How long have you been collecting records and how many do you have in your collection?
I started collecting vinyl in 2015. I think I have about 600 records.
What’s your favourite vinyl you own and what is your holy grail?
I have to say the most important records to me are my father’s old 60’s and 70’s 7’inch vinyl singles. My favorite vinyl I own are Duran Duran’s albums.
Who’s in your top five of favourite bands?
This is so tricky to answer. Duran Duran Rush Kiss, Uriah Heep, Sparzanza and The Ramones.
If you could have dinner with any musician from any time who would it be and why?
I would love to go to dinner with Janis Joplin. She was such a hippie girl and she’s so Janis. It would have been fun to know her.
Any recommendations on movies, tv shows or music?
I like horror, thriller and action movies. TV shows like Killing Eve and American Horror Story are great. Movies Star Wars, Pirates of The Caribbean, Lord of The Rings, Mad Max Fury Road and Halloween movies.
