Svart Mondo presents a limited edition of 500 copies on black vinyl.
Highly influential debut album of raunchy and energetic psychedelic early garage punk by Finnish legend Virtanen, originally released on the infamous Love Records label in 1974 and now presented as a first ever vinyl reissue.
With a reputation of having wild stage shows, Virtanen’s HAL-00 was touted as the first Finnish punk rock album not only for the raw music but also for the band’s scruffy, outsider image. If Virtanen’s music needs classification, it is a brand of early garage rock, with proto-punk influences, inspired by Bowie, The Who, T-Rex and The Kinks. Ahead of their time in sound and style, Virtanen’s showmanship was unseen for a rock group at the time in Finland, and HAL-00 is nothing short of a timeless classic. Revitalised for a new era, with photo and lyric booklet with extensive liner notes.
