RED ADAIR ARRIVES IN THE OUTER RIVER

...And a new one for all you sad, serotonin-deprived nighthawks:



Ker-lick to n/lrge...

SOMETHING TO LOOK AT WHEN YOU'RE STONED, HIPPIES

A few old pics assembled into a slideshow:

MORE FINNISH SYNTH MUSIK

Actually, Nick: I think you might quite like this too.

Also I think you and other Kid Shirt readers might dig Kompleksi affiliate Citizen Omega aka Eero Salminen aka DJ Willy, who sounds like Visage on steroids. Go check, it's great stuff!

There's also Polytron and Unidentified Sound Objects. If I had some spare cash (and time) then perhaps assembling a Finnish synth compilation album or CD might be in order...feel sure there's a market out there amongst synth-nerds and Finnphilliacs...

And let's not forget the wonderful TV-Resistori...who I've mentioned before.

'Course there was always the Finnish minimal techno label Sahko, Mika Vainio, Jim Tenor, etc...

And in the early 80s there was a Bowie/Kraftwerk influenced "Futu" (short for Futurism) scene featuring groups like Stressi, Hot Sox...and there was the Einstein A Go Go club in, I think, Helsinki...
