  1. I beg to differ with the allmusic quote “these musicians aren’t exactly wild, except in a reserved sub-Arctic kind of way” — Kimmo Pohjonen IS wild…he certainly has become so!

    The man on the left in the album pic, has, 13 years on from this recording, created amazing loop-based creative improvising music using accordion and voice, working in variety of projects, sometimes with quadrophonic PA. Check http://www.kimmopohjonen.com/


    PS – please don’t use WMA format for samples

  2. I found the album in a cut-out bin nearly 15 years ago. Since then, it has been a touchstone. I agree that there is little to which it can be compared. However, there can be no doubt that the musicianship was of the first water and the album has the thoughtfulness that is a perennial breath of fresh air.
