V/A - Smacked! a tribute to Ilari "Claude" Peltola
Almost 20 years ago, Ilari "Claude" Peltoia passed away. He was Smack / The Fishfaces / Fellow Reptiles singer and one of my personal hero.
Coming from Finland, Smack just like their friends from Hanoi Rocks made quite an impression on many international musicians and music lovers then. And still do to this day.
