Review by Mellotron Storm
4 stars If your into Zappa influenced music this is a really, really good one out of Finland. Jukku is a guitarist extraordinaire and he plays in Frank's style at times but not always and this guy is exceptional. He released 2 studio albums in the seventies and this is the debut from 1972. Lots of musicians helped him out over the month of July when he recorded this. Plenty of sax and we get bass and double bass and yes this is quite jazzy. I was thrilled to see that the violinist on here is Juhani Poutanen the leader of the band JUPU GROUP who's album I just reviewed last week. We get that zany Finnish humour like on the closer "Waltz For The Straight Relatives" or the outstanding but short "Jamsession The Finnish Yes Federation's Skinheaded Board" where we get some incredible female scat singing.

Best song for me is "Splitting" with that nasty distorted electric piano along with Jukku's guitar work makes this a must hear. "What ?" is another winner but there's lots of those on here. The jazzy groove before the electric piano and guitar trade off then we get this uptempo soundscape of double bass, drums and the guitar lighting it up. Distorted electric piano too. Yes! Our very excellent violinist does his thing on the title track an uptempo and repetitive track with a Zappa vibe. More of that violin and Zappa like guitar on "Evil". Some humour with those funny vocal expressions that come and go on "No More Blues". So much going on late. So impressive. Suspense and Avant with the short "Room 1972" and what a great title. The opener has an Asian vibe at times and I like when it turns into a "Rock" mode late to the end.

Another awesome Jazz influenced album from the seventies. More please!
