VUOLA Releases New Album – ‘ALOUV’

VUOLA’s psychedelic, heavy-hitting debut album Alouv will be officially released on Friday, May 13th. The Finnish Rocker’s new album is an amalgamation of psychedelic rock, instrumental virtuosity, vocal passion, and poetic lyrics.

Listeners will be captivated by the music which was inspired and awoken by a vision that appeared to the artist, one of peace and passion, harmony and hope, and love and friendship. Many of the singles on the album were influenced by the sounds of greats from the past, like Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, as well as Tom Scholz of Boston. All proceeds of ‘Alouv’ will be donated to the victims of the Ukraine war via UNICEF.

The first single off the album “Under Above Orion Venus Loves” carries the modal weight of Pink Floyd and the melodic rock sensibilities of Led Zeppelin. The song’s themes include the beauty of nature, love and the meaning of life, and the ebb and flow of joy and sorrow. This single includes gorgeous guitar solo work.

The second single off the album Alouv, “Laugh Vivid Often Adore Unity” was dedicated to Vuola’s sister having lost her husband to cancer recently, way too early. It is a spiritual reckoning for Vuola who wrote it under the stars experiencing the transformation of life and hoping all souls will meet again.

About Vuola

VUOLA is a psychedelic rock project of a Finnish drummer, producer and studio manager Jussi Vuola. In his music there’s a shimmer in darkness, a touch in space, beauty in distortion and aspiration in despair. A history of growing with Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and the like is being shaped with low tunings, vibration and chanting on his concept album, based both on geometrics and syntax. The anticipated, esoteric, heavy hitting album “Alouv” is coming out in spring 2022.

Jussi Vuola has played drums since his teenage years in a variety of acts, including the Finnish bands The Grammers, Mystons, Willie & The Goodsouls and Achiote to name a few. In 2010 he put together an analog recording studio in Turku, Finland that has become a home for a lot of more acts since. Hundreds of gigs around the globe, tens of albums he has played on and hundreds of releases he has taken part of production in have shaped him to a person he is today. During the years it became clear it was eventually time for him to make a move downstage. In 2022 he is leading a talented five-piece under his own name to venues with himself on vocals & guitar – an another teenage love of his.

“I was privileged enough to spend the entire summer of 2021 to write music premised on a vision that appeared to me in a dream some time ago. In August 2021 I was happy to book my own commercial music studio for 2 weeks for a production and songs completely my own, for the first time in the 10 years of history being an entrepreneur and working hard in the recording industry. I had produced, engineered, mixed, mastered, released and played on a lot of albums and thus given my part to the the music community. This time I had the opportunity to do something completely different – for me, myself and I only. These are the fruits of the beautiful summer I spent under the sun and stars, in peace and harmony, surrounded by the people I love. Recorded with a little help from my friends. Processed by the best professionals in the world. In my dream, this album was a start for something bigger too, something collective, something that would spread a lot of good into the world.”

All proceeds of the album will be donated to the victims of the Ukraine war during year 2022 via Unicef. The album is for sale on Bandcamp now for the amount of your choice.

Buying Machinery At Auction

Buying Machinery At Auction

 

 

The Condition Of The Machine

When you buy anything online, the experience is unsettling for you. Online auctions have become popular and are where most people visit when they want to sell their underutilized machinery.

You need to make sure you have a condition report on the machine before you can bid on it. some auction houses are going to provide you with the report if you ask.

If the location of the machine is not far, then you can go and inspect it in person. You can bring along a trusted friend who is going to help in inspecting the machine.

If this isn’t possible, then pay a local mechanic to help you inspect the machine you are interested in.

Retail Price vs Auction Price 

This is an important thing to consider because in the past auctions provided buyers with a place they could get machines at a bargain. The internet has made life a little easy and auctions can be done online.

Online auctions are handling a lot of transactions daily because it has become the go-to place for many people. One thing that has happened in the auction “bargain” price becoming the auction “retail” price. If you check out eBay, you will see the “buy it now” option is popular.

You need to research so you can know the difference between a “retail” price and a “bargain” price. There is no need of paying more than needed when buying a machine when you can visit the Surplus Database.

The Service Records 

Before you buy a machine, you need to ensure that you can service the machine.

If you are good at mechanical stuff, you can do it yourself. If you have to rely on a mechanic to repair or service the machine, make sure you can get the service books or advice from an OEM if needed.

One thing you have to keep in mind is the machine is going to break down at some point and the important thing is how long is it going to be down. You can save yourself a lot of time when you have the service manuals and you need to work on the machine after it breaks down.

 

Spare Parts Availability

Spare parts are very important because you will need them when the machine breaks down. When you buy from an online auction and see a good machine from a brand that is unfamiliar in the marketplace, ask yourself whether you are going to get spare parts easily.

If the machine is from a foreign brand, then it is going to be hard to get genuine parts when you need to repair the machine, which will complicate things a lot.

There are few dealers who will have the reach to get international parts when you need them.

 

Machine history

This is going to go hand in hand with the condition of the machine. you will find many machines at the online auctions that are reported to have low hours of operation, but they are not. The owners gave it a quick “liquid overhaul”.

You need to know where the machine was before. The place where the machine was previously is going to have a big impact. A machine that has 1000 hours of operation in a fruit shop is different from one that has 1000 hours of operation in a foundry.

 

Transportation costs

Many people overlook this when buying machines online. They realize it when it is too late. When they realize the machine is in another state and they have to spend it the moment they realize they have made a mistake.

Make sure you factor in the transport cost when calculating how much you are spending on the machine. You might be surprised to find that you could have bought it locally at the same price.

Warranty

When you buy a machine from an online auction, forget about getting a warranty with that purchase.

The machinery is most of the time sold as it is unless it is stipulated. If you get the machine and you start using it then you realize it has broken down a few days later, you don’t have a warranty that covers the purchase.

You have to meet the full costs of repairing the machine.

The condition of the unit, service availability, and spare availability is very important if you want to keep it running.

The afterlife

You need to think about what you are going to do with the machine after you are done using it.

Is it easy to resell it? Can you relist it on the online auction and then sell it? Are you going to own the machine until the end of its natural life?

It is a good idea to have a disposal plan for any machinery you purchase.
