Forget the ipa and apa and all strange tasting beers, soon there will be fresh briskly hoped Czech-type pils for all humppa people.
The idea of our own beer was born among our Czech fans working at a local brewery a couple of years ago and originally Pilsner Spurguel was supposed to launch a year ago at our gig in Plzen. However, the corona pandemic put a brake on putting it on and when our tour was postponed for a year this spring as well, we decided to bring beer to the market without a gala concert. This was facilitated by the fact that the manufacturer was able to arrange not only the supply of draft beer to restaurants but also a functioning distance sales partner. Our pilsner doesn’t come to retail because we wanted to keep the consumer price as humane as possible (and the profits for ourselves).
Pilsner Spurguel is a lager-type unfiltered but separated fresh gluten-free bottom yeast beer with a comfortable 5.2% alcohol. The beer is delivered in 50 cl cans. The minimum order lot is 24 pcs.
CPL-music store is run by our German record company dude and will serve you fast and trustly with cheaper shipping costs if you are living there where you do not drown in snow and freeze at the moment.
Best thing. From all above mentioned shops you can order these great brand new retro vintage hand printed shirts and tote bags (printed by Pekka, our shop keeper an designer and the master who took this blurred photo:)
Discount bundle prices are shirt 15€ and tote for 5€ (without vinyls 20 & 5) are valid until the vinyl release day 12.3. After that them are for sure available at our web shop.
Humppakäräjät is on gatefold cover + 2 side inlay with yellow vinyl, Humppa United is double album white vinyl in simple covers + an inlay.
These releases are done as best as we can. The vinyl sound mastering is done by Mika Jussila at Finnvox who also did the mastering for the original CD-releases. For the covers we used the original data and if needed and available we scanned the original drawings and photos. (Humppakäräjät cover photo is blurred as we did not want to sharpen digitally the only original file we had available).
By the way, here is the original drawing with the new shirt and totebag:
About 20 years ago we released the superb DVD collection Sekoilun ytimessä (some still maybe available) and all of the content will never be on web for sure but we will put to YouTube some additions. Here is extended version (the complete video footage) of the first captured Eläkeläiset gig. This gig was planned to be the last performance so we put a lot of effort to give out our best both musically and visually. Enjoy.
