STRENG, PEKKA - KESÄMAA (CD)


reissue from 1972 + 4 bonus tracks. Remastered. feat. Olli Ahvenlahti, Eero Koivistoinen, Pekka Pöyry, Hasse Walli.. "Pekka Streng (26 April 1948 - 11 April 1975) was a Finnish artist whose recorded music was a combination of folk and psychedelia with some jazzy flavour and occasional electronic experimentation. He died of cancer only two weeks before his 27th birthday, but his two albums, Magneettimiehen kuolema ("The Death of Magnet Man", 1970) and Kesämaa ("Summerland", 1972), have assured him a huge posthumous cult following and influential position even among those fans who hadn't been born at the time of his death. Pekka Streng's mystique is increased by the fact that he avoided publicity all his life, giving only one interview, which was published after his death in 1978." (phinnweb)
