Secret Eye/Lal Lal Lal AB-OC-13/

CD
£10.99


Brand new album from the heaviest of the new Finnish operatives, a clutch of explosive strategies wound around mantric bass patterns and the sound of flesh on skin that gives the nod to Wümme-era Faust, International Harvester and Amon Düül. Features some bonus Garfield graphics as well as a hot pic of Merja aka Islaja who joins the line-up alongside Jan Anderzen, Arttu Partinen etc... Our kind of package and one of the best ways ‘in’ to the whole Finnish thing.

Salon des Amateurs

Pome Pome Tones PPT-1

LP
£21.99


Edition of only 200 copies LP from this Finnish free/rock commune: a welcome return for this Finnish behemoth after a prolonged period of silence. Salon des Amateurs presents a set of extended jams that combine the fractured logic of the Faust Tapes with heavy, bass-driven dirges and Silence/Ohr/Pilz-style psychedelic punk strategies. Everything is nailed into place by the nod-out rhythm section, providing an anchor for some way out orbits of electronics, guitar, communal percussion and hypnotic sleight of hand that could almost pass for goddamn Siloah outtakes. Where is the shops where I can buy all the dope I want? Right here, dude. Highly recommended!
