PÄÄ KII: Self-titled: Cassette

Well done Finnish punk that sits somewhere between a hopped-up Generation X and maybe a slightly more stolid Randy, which is a pretty amazing combo on paper, but Pää Kii suffer from pretty warbly and quiet production, and said weak production pretty much chops a lot of this cassette’s strength off right at the knees. Weak packaging, but catchy as hell and resoundingly well done. Songs are mostly in Finnish, but there’s an obvious buoyancy here that’s pretty universal. This shit’s got verve, okay?
