Valse Triste- Madon Luku
(If Society IF-38)

From Aural Innovations #37 (Sep 2007)

These guys are pretty crazy…. Very high energy Finnish punk rock. 20 tracks in 28 minutes! The CD comes in a really nice digipack with all the Finnish lyrics in a nice laminated booklet. I have never heard of the band but they have been on the scene since 1986, producing a lot of music. This is their 5th CD and they have put out a load of split LPs, 7” records and demo tapes, if you look at their web site.. Some of this stuff has a quite noisy dissonant guitar sound and a very raw sound. Can’t understand a word, though.. The tracks range from 36 seconds long to 3:16 seconds at the longest. Crazy stuff…
