MMP – Who plays what? Could you describe yourselves in a few words…

Wanton – So, okay, Wanton is a four-headed beast consisting of Santeri Kero/Lead vocals, Eetu Ritakorpi/Drums and backing vocals, Oskari Nieminen/Guitars and backing vocals and Santeri Toivonen/doublebass.

We’re pretty different kinda people, who share the same passion for the music and that is what brings us together as a band.
MMP – How did the band get started?
Wanton – The band started in a way that I think a fair share of bands get started: A night of heavy drinking between friends! Santeri K and Eetu had an idea to start a band while drinking, and the genre was just picked there on the spot. Psychobilly, because that kind of music was rare to hear in a small city at west-coast Finland. Soon Eetu got his friend Oskari to play the guitar in the band and by a happy accident we were introduced to the doublebass player Santeri T. We started practicing after that and then played our first gig in a local pub. Since then we’ve been doing gigs and our own music.
MMP – Who writes the music?
Wanton – The songwriting is mostly by Santeri K and Santeri T, with Eetu and Oskari steadily pitching in with fresh ideas. So far all the lyrics are written by Santeri K.
