Mika Vainio / Kouhei Matsunaga: split 12″ (handscreened cover)

Some might wonder where this alias (mugwumb) I’m using comes from.. Mika Vainio released album called “Olento” back in 1996 using one of his best know aliases, Ø. Seventh track on that album is called “Mugwumb”. For those who does not know, Vainio was one half of Pan Sonic (formerly know as Panasonic) with Ilpo Väisänen. This duo shaped my opinion of electronic music totally with their first full-length “Vakio”. Listened that album about thousand times during my time in army back then. Anyways, still love to listen experimental electronic music, thanks to Vainio & Väisänen. I found this record some time ago from Discogs and I had to purchase it because it was nearly half free. I’m unqualified to say anything about these recordings, I just have to get them all. This one is released by Important Records and this special handscreened version is limited to 25 copies. There are also more regular versions (on black vinyl & green vinyl) floating around and maybe the best way to get your hands on these is Discogs / Ebay.
