We all remember the Kätkä sisters… or, more precisely, the CatCat duet which represented Finland back in 1994 in Dublin. CatCat recorded a certain number of CD albums and Virpi has just published a first solo album, under the title Reloaded.
It is actually the same concept than Tauski Peltonen's latest CD (Tauski is Virpi's husband): new dance versions of old classics. Virpi's own CD includes 18 tracks (it's a double CD), among which cover versions of Alcazar's Crying at the discotheque and Alexia's Summer is crazy. There is also two 2009 versions of Bye bye baby (radio and club edits).The new CD features two of CatCat's greatest hits in Finland as well as some new material of Virpi. For instance Marraskuu:
Last year, Tauski Peltonen's own CD – entitled Reloaded too – reached gold status in Finland. The man tried his luck several times at the Finnish national selections. Funny to remember that the husband-to-be placed 10th and last with Seitsemänteen taivaaseen the same year than CatCat won the ticket to Eurovision.
CatCat represented Finland in 1994 with Bye bye baby and finished 22nd out of 25 songs.
