      Fun music

      The Nature of 22 Pisterpirkko is a compilation of songs from 1985-2002 made by the Finnish cult musicians 22 Pistepirkko (which translates to ladybirds), 3 things you can count on the Finns for are racing drivers, liquorice and rock bands, whilst the majority of their well known bands tend to play metal, they also have some more softer stuff which is recommended listening.

      My two favourite calmer Finnish groups have to be Alamaailman Vasarat, a crazy avant-garde group and 22 Pistepirkko who are as equally inventive, have been a round a longer time and have a totally different sound. The general concensus is that this band were ahead of their time, their current sound has similarities to Primal Scream but they definitely set a precedent by mixing a psychedelic, garage and at times almost punk sound with an electronic one.

      A lot of the songs have a real catchiness to them, I think my favourite has to be 'Frankenstein' which has the edginess of a Zombina & The Skeletones song and suits the subject perfectly. I do find that the vocalist P-K Keranen has a rather nasally voice which can grate on you after listening to the whole compilation - a regular album at a time might be better advice but I'm not really sure which one to recommend because I'm not overly familiar with the individual albums. This is a fun album and despite being a Finnish group, virtually every song is in English.
