Sperm - Shh! (1970)

Sperm was the biggest name of Helsinki underground, having in its line-up among all Mattijuhani Koponen, P.Y. Hiltunen, Antero Helander, J.O. Mallander, Markus Heikkerц and the musical primus motor Pekka Airaksinen. The group arranged happenings, performances and concerts (with appropriate psychedelic light shows); and managed to cause some debate and public outrage at the time in Finland. Sperm created their experimental compositions using only various guitar effects and tape manipulations; the results of which could these days be called "ambient noise". Taken from FinnScene

Included into highly acclaimed NWW list

This is a compressed archive of mp3's of the type 'rar'. Google 'rar' and you should come up with Winrar (PC), UnRarX (Mac) and others. Please note you will need to locate and use the password on main blog page.

do you have the track listing--in particular, the titles of what i'm presuming are bonus tracks (5-8)? i've been searching the web and can't seem to figure out the full track listing of the cd reissue.

thanks so much for this! very, very, very cool.

sorry to have bothered you. i had zapped the file names, so i was confused, but now i've restored them and can see the track titles in the file names. thanks, thanks, thanks again. and sorry!

Does anyone know what format .m4a is ??? I can unpack the download using WinRar but after that....??
Please illuminate...

Anonymous, I have these offline at the moment but could have sworn they were mp3's. IF they are mp4a, this is basically the ACC format(iTunes/Apple format) without the actual ACC license being used. I am not on Windows but I know at least iTunes should play them. Hope that helps ;-)

You can play m4a's with winamp too. If you're unable just search in google for: m4a plugin for winamp. Hope this help.
And thanks for this album, interesting albums here on the site, seems like I will spend some more time here :o)
