NAUTA - Onko Suomi Vapaa Maa? EP 1979

Nauta (Reijo (vocals/guitar), Kai (guitar), Petri (keyboards), Pekka (bass) and Antti (drums) were founded in the late 70s where punk also conquered Finland. This is their rare and only record, self-financed and called Is Finland A Free Country? and published by Majuri Records. Meanwhile a rare collectors piece because only 150 copies exist. Listen to three beautiful melodic songs in finnish language and also worth mentioning is the hand-painted artwork. It's amazing (it seems there is a bubbling spring there) how easy the northmen create shallow pop-rhythms in a colorful punkdress and throw a lot of good records into the world... a meaningful pastime + dreams never end. They represented on two cool compilations from the 80's, 3 Vuotta Myöhemmin and Asfalttidisco. Nice One!
