Good news. Our new CD Humppa of Finland will be out 21.4.2017 so it is available on our spring tour. Jan of Finland (Andersson) made the great cover art. On the album there is a bunch of special guests but we do not tell the names yet. If you live in Europe and not in Scandinavia you should order the record from Nordic Notes in case that there is no record shop near you. Support your local record dealer!
And here is the video single Robottihumppa, maybe the weirdest song on the album.
And more new songs you will hear on our gigs in Finland (With Stam1na):
Our Web Shop Jokisen Valinta will be in a bit slow motion now but we keep mailing the stuff every second day or so. From 24.1.2017 there will be a break for about one month when Pekka is not shipping any stuff.
Jokisen Valinta have been updated. Now you have to add a flat shipping fee if you order stuff that have to be sent in a packet. Also the prices of the big stuff went down so now the big stuff should be cheaper for you. The shop uses DHL GlobalMail that also is fast (but no tracking numbers).
Some of the stuff will be sold out and to avoid the rush, please place your order in time.
There is some nice re-prints and new stuff updated (New x-mas balls!).
Please remember that the shop is kept very manually and in this rush season it might take some time to reply to your order.
Hi! See us 360 degrees from our last Helsinki gig!
More to be come here later. And Apple do not support the format so Safari browser or iOS devices do not rock.
Juha Kiviharjun is releasing an experimentary documentary Humppasin kerran Moskovassa about us and him on his YouTube channel. The teaser is here:
Badges for free
