Hasse Walli is the legendary guitarist behind early Piirpauke and Blues Section. Between these two groups Walli had a short‐lived quartet called Z eus, whose short lifespan lasted from 1972 to 1973.

Album:JAZ Z ‐LIISA 18
Label:SVART
Format:LP
Genre:JAZZ/JAZZ ROCK

The final part of the Jazz Liisa series sees the extraordinary cult percussion artist Edward Vesala lead a 9‐piece ensemble. Recorded in 1974, shortly before the recording of his legendary Nan Madol album, this is a rare chance to hear Vesala live on air during his early creative period.

 

 

POP‐LIISA 18

Band:DONNA/TABULA RASA
Album:POP‐LIISA 18
Label:SVART
Format:LP
Genre:Prog Rock

Our 18‐part Pop Liisa series closes with one of the last of the radio shows in the Pop series. Donna’s set could be called a true lost gem – this reggae‐influenced rock group only recorded one single (on Love Records) before disbanding in 1979. This four track radio session features only previously unheard tracks and offers an idea what a Donna album might have sounded like. Tabula Rasa are one of the most influential and important acts of the Progressive Rock movement in 70’s Finland, and this radio session is the only surviving document of their later period after the departure of their original singer Jukka Leppilampi. Also features one unrecorded song, ‘Windy’.

Borderlands

Band:WEATHERED STATUES
Album:Borderlands
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Gothic Rock

As the earth turns toward a colder era and humans struggle to adapt to a bleaker autumn breeze, a new music shivers in the shadows. There stand Weathered Statues. The group convened in early 2017 in Denver, Colorado, with three members having previously performed together in the post‐doom outfit Cloak of Organs (along with members of Planes Mistaken for Stars and Wovenhand). Weathered Statues convened at Module Overload Studios in Denver over the summer of 2017 to record with Jamie Hillyer (engineer of Green Druid’s Ashen Blood). An album, Borderlands, coalesced, drawing on the grim futurism of the past: the barren darkness of Skeletal
Family, the metallic abrasion of Killing Joke, the crystalline ghostliness of Siouxsie and the Banshees, the icy dreaminess of Xmal Deutschland, and the hollow fragility
of early New Order. Then Lol Tolhurst, co‐founder of The Cure, agreed to remix “Corpse Candle,” the opening track of Borderlands, infusing it with a sleek dance pulse, while Keith Curts of industrial duo Echo Beds added synthesizer to the album’s slashing final track, “Holy Masquerade.”

 

 

Kid In A Big World

Band:JOHN HOWARD
Album:Kid In A Big World
Label:YOU ARE THE COSMOS
Format:LP (+ MP3 Download Code)
Genre:POP

Originally released by CBS in 1975 ‐ Produced by Tony Meehan at Abbey Road (engineer Peter Bown ‐ Beatles , Barbara Streisand) and by Paul Phillips at Apple Studios (engineer Phil McDonald ‐ John Lennon ), It featured musicians of the calibre of Argent’s keyboardist Rod Argent and their drummer Bob Henrit. "A magnificent collection of rococo balladry and florid vignettes from a singer/songwriter who might have rivaled Elton or Bowie. What a discovery!" (Uncut *****) “If a fairer world prevailed, John Howard would surely have been huge in the 1970's. Even though events didn't turn out that way... at least there's a chance for those who missed out first time to discover a 1975 album that ranks as a great "lost" treasure. With a sound midway between the flamboyant piano‐led poprock of Elton John and the rich melodrama and tragic story‐telling of Scott Walker, the album begins superbly with a strident 'Goodbye Suzie' but its tale of suicide meant that it was deemed unfit for Radio 1 at the time” (Leonard's Lair) “This really is a wonderful little gem... and unmissable pearl from a wonderful singer‐songwriter” (Amazon UK) “A great batch of Beatles‐inspired pop graced with some incredible production touches (Dusty Groove) “One of the greatest hidden albums of pop combining David Bowie, Lewis Carroll, Syd Barrett, Jarvis
Cocker; eccentric dandy John Howard deserves an ovation” (Standart Magazine) “the combination of pop melodies with finely wrought lyricism and occassional theatricalism” (All Music Guide)
“A lost glam era gem...a fascinating album and story both...” (Mohair Sweets)
