Boomkat Product Review:
The Finnish have a strong army this much I know, and if the last few weeks at Boomkat are anything to go by then I think it’s very obvious that they are making a sly invasion over to British shores. I’ve never seen so many Finnish words in my life as I have already this year, and I’ve been to Finland! Damn, all those umlauts are destroying my brain cells I’m certain of it, it’s all a careful ploy by those quiet Finnish types to confuse us so they can catch us off guard. Still, with music like this I’m quite happy for them to carry on and march all over the houses of parliament – go for it guys, just keep plying me with light psychedelia and oddball folk and I’m happy, just don’t stop the production of Marmite and HP Sauce. Originally issued in 1975 (the cd gives us a handful of bonus tracks on top of the originals), this album gives a startlingly clear heritage of Finnish alternative music, tracing the roots of many Fonal acts perfectly. Mummi Kutoo take a folk rock sound very close to Fairport Convention and infuse it with enough left-of-anything craziness to render the cd as interesting to listen to now as it clearly was in 1975. With bits of screwed up Americana – banjo’s and hoedowns, bits of very worrying musichall, and including a couple beer swilling sing-alongs; this really wouldn’t be out of place on Important Records or even Fonal. This is a historical treasure and should be treated as such. Fascinating.
