HERTTA LUSSU ASSA-YOU ARE SUCH AN PRETTY SUCKER, CDR, 2005, FINLAND




Gnomic no-fi plunk, wheeze, rattle and moan courtesy of an unfortunately monikered (well...at least to English language readers anyway...it probably means something just lovely in Finnish...) supergroup comprised of Jonna Karanka aka Kuupuu, Laura Naukkarinen aka Lau Nau and Merja Kokkonen aka Islaja that draws from the seemingly eternal well of stoned detuned mischief that feeds the viaducts of the Finnish underground. The sheer density of acts positing variants on this same post-Amon Duul/Siloah-like freakout stylee there gives rise to questions of bandwagon hopping, but that's a discussion for another time. For the here and now, this first release of theirs (all titles are apparently different, as are the handmade covers) is a choice manifestation of heavy-lidded third-mind acoustic weirdity that's as ungainly as it is mystically/chemically blasted.

Some good ideas put perhaps not ready for prime-time (most likely explaining the CDR medium for release). Compared to solo efforts by Lau Nau and Kuupuu, this reveals itself as a lesser item. All the elements of freak-folk wicked witchery are present, but they're not arranged in compelling ways. More like seeing an artist's palette than her canvas.

I am very interested in the album 'You are such an pretty sucker'. The profided link doesn't lead to the album. I would appreciate it if you upload it again.
