Black Audio

Black Audio

Started writing songs together in 1997. Never made a distinction between traditional and modern high tech instruments. An acoustic guitar makes a fine sound, a groovebox makes a fine sound. Digital or analog, hi-fi lo-fi, if it suits they'll wear it.

Echo Is Your Love

Echo Is Your Love

Out of tune noise rock from Helsinki Finland.
Four guys thrashing their instruments while the girl tries to keep the songs together with her near angelic vocals. Started in 1998 echo is your love has raised from the improvised lo-fi soundscapes and led its way to whole new area of post-punk and hardcore that brings together the best elements of pop, no-wave, post-punk and art core, whatever that might be..

Fun

Fun

Fun are a band from Helsinki. They've shared stages with The Jesus Lizard, Nomeansno, Polvo and Deerhoof. They've recorded their last two albums at Steve Albini's Electrical Audio, with the great man at the helm. Think of Rapeman and Melt Banana, fry up some Butthole Surfers and then add a dash of the spastic Finnish jazzcore of Deep Turtle. Brutal and honest.
