December update

We have a new calendar picture available. Download the pdf from  here (or clic the pic).


And as far as we know we have one confirmed gig:

  • 9.12. SF, Lahti, Möysä (this was cancelled but that was misinformation)

10.12. there might be something and we let you know as soon as we know.

Our Web Shop

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.


November and humppa!

Esakallion matka


If you happen to be at Wien, Austria you might be interested of the DotDotDot film event. On Thursday 18th of August there will be screening with a film called Tango Finlandia directed by two guys very active in our band (and also acting small parts in the film). One of the directors will be there presenting the film so if you see someone like our merchandise guy there he probably is the same dude, just with different role and different name. Give him some nice humppa greetings!
