The eighties were not an ideal time to be a pioneer of electronic music in Finland. Tapa Paha Tapa, scorned by labels at the time, managed to put out just one privately pressed seven inch and a few cassette tapes which circulated in the underground. The band’s unique, wild synth-electro-pop art can now be fully appreciated on this extensive compilation, which features their cassette album Aurinko in its entirety and a selection of other works.
