Blue Anglia

Blue Anglia – Cessna

I think finding so much that this band came from Finland must have done something to me, because since then i’ve taken to this record in ways i hadn’t before. Or maybe it was just that i sat down and listened to it. There’s nothing particularly Finnish about it (but what am i grading Finnish from? Aki Kaurismaki movies? Hel Looks?), in the international pop underground way that a lot of Australian bands don’t seem Australian. And like those bands, Cessna’s releases and success came beyond Finland’s borders from that international underground. But part of me likes knowing they’re from there, and thinks it’s important. It’s the farthest place in the world from here.

Blue Anglia – Cessna

It’s time again for another round of this mix sending group i’m apart of to do its thing. I should really quit it. No one likes what i send them, and all i get back is nerd music. I have to send something to a person in Finland, and every time i do this i like to send something from the mix-receiver’s country or region. Partly to gauge how big some of these bands are locally; partly as some global outreach, partly perhaps to show them what music has come from their home.

So i’ve had to wrack my brain thinking of bands from Finland. The punk stuff was easy (though still blurring into some greater Scandinavian scope of it), but beyond that i had to do some research. I found that Cessna were from Finland. It’s something that, if i ever learned the fact, never stuck with me. Maybe because it’s not important. I’m sure to some Finnish people it is. So enjoy or suffer, FInnish mix-receiver, a piece of your indie pop history.
