V/A - "More Arctic Hysteria/Son Of Arctic Hysteria" (2005 Love Records comp)


Here's the second part of the "Arctic Hysteria" post. Actually second and third as this is a 2-disc two-in-one sequel. Lots and lots more Finnish weirdness! I neglected in my last post to mention that this is an overview of early Finnish avant garde. Indeed, it is amazing to me that a lot of this stuff was recorded around the same time The Beatles were whining "She loves you yeah yeah yeah", haha. Many on these three discs are legends in certain circles, M.A. Numminen, Erkki Kurenniemi (who invented his own electronic instruments in the early 60's) and The Sperm, to name a few. And god bless the legendary (and sadly defunct) Love Records (also home to prog titans Wigwam) for supporting this music!
