In July 1984, the otherworldly entourage of over fifty musicians of Urban Sax swarmed across the coastal town of Pori, Finland, to perform a historic concert at the Pori Jazz Festival. The masked musicians, veiled in space suits and fencing masks, arrived at the scene of the concert in the Central Pori Church by fire engines, forklifts and water buses from all over the town, followed by an ecstatic and bewildered crowd of festival-goers and amazed locals alike. For those present, the explosively apocalyptic spectacle, envisioned by the Urban Sax mastermind Gilbert Artman, completely subverted the conventional notions of what a concert can be, unfolding a total artwork. What we have here probably is one of the the finest documents of a recorded culture shock, with repercussions being felt to this day.

Also available: LIVE IN PORI 1984 (CD).

DEKATHLON - THE THIN ROAD

Dekathlon sounds like an unholy alliance of majestic nonchalance of Vangelis and better-to-burn-out era Neil Young coupled with the dreamscapes of Kavinsky. Unpretentious from the exterior, the stained-glass universe of Dekathlon explodes into full chromatic glow from ... read more »

HOPEAJÄRVI - HOPEAJÄRVI

Hopeajärvi is an eight-legged marvel, a symmetrical creature rigged from a piano string, dancing asymmetrically across the highest of high-wires. Imagine Trumans Water and the young Esa Saarinen inhabiting one lyrical whole, laced with meat-counter philology, and then ... read more »

 

MOTELLI SKRONKLE - JUNA

MOTELLI SKRONKLE - JUNA

The 2016 full-length from this unique band that formed in the '80s. The group's futuristic music is gut loaded with penetrating vigour that will make one's energies flow. It is minimalist campfire techno. It is blasphemous arctic groove. It is archaic blues.
