Finland's hardcore legends bring to mind Terveet Kadet crossed with Big Black. Five short, sharp shocks to the system for this one-of-a-kind band.
This ep also shows up on this cd collection!
"Fast aggressive metaphysical punk politics from Finland. Radiopuhelimet is one of Jello Biafra's favorite bands, and the English translation of their lyrics reveals a self-centered passion that's as in-your-face as vocalist J.A. Maki's screeches and growls. Less twisted than most Scandinavian rock, Radiopuhelimet is pretty hardcore though it sometimes wanders into metallic flash. Fans of angry and ominous sounds won't be disappointed."
"Ay caramba! Hardcore from Finland. Sung in Finnish or Lapp (I presume), this trio with an ever-changing bassist kicks some seriously unintelligible ass on this five-song compilation of stuff from three albums and two EPs. The first side is pretty heavy (in almost straight-ahead metal fashion), but the second side reminds me a bit of Nomeansno. If you wanna take some chances with your vinyl dollars, snap this up."
