Terveet Kädet

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Terveet Kädet are a Finnish hardcore punk band, the first in Finland.[citation needed] The group was founded in Tornio in January 1980. They have had a major influence on bands from all over the world, especially in Brazil (which some have claimed was because of a member from the leading band Olho Seco and his enthusiasm/connections to that country's scene).[citation needed] Max Cavalera of Sepultura and Soulfly has mentioned Terveet Kädet as one of his all-time favourite bands.[1]

The band's line-up has changed several times, and the singer Veli-Matti "Läjä" Äijälä is the only original member left.

The name "Terveet Kädet" means "Healthy Hands".
