Cream, Traveling Wilburys, Humble Pie, Susi-Unto… all supergroups have their stories to tell.
Jussi Lehtisalo (Circle, Rättö ja Lehtisalo, Pharaoh Overlord, Steel Mammoth etc.) got to know Janne Mäki-Turja and Raine Liimakka – the elastic rhythm section of Can Can Heads and Valse Triste – a couple of decades ago, but it is only now with Susi-Unto that they have ended up making music together in the same band.
The original idea for the trio was to play some punk but the end product is something far more rough and multi-faceted.
Puheluja pimeältä puolelta was recorded during one intensive weekend. The album is harsh on the surface and frayed at the edges, but may contain traces of surprising sensitivity – crushing brutality meeting tranquil vocal melodies, the beauty meeting the beast.
Puheluja pimeältä puolelta is only available on 12” vinyl. Susi-Unto has plans to record some more music before the end of the year. Released in cooperation with Karkia Mistika and Ikuisuus.
